Six years ago Corsair first entered the PSU market with the HX520W and HX620W, both of which products were marked as a great success for the company. Today the company offers 6 series of PSUs but the HX series remains alive, with its modular 80Plus Gold certified units right between the elite AX series and the mainstream 80Plus Bronze certified TX series.
