CORSAIR Celebrates Ten Years of PSUs and Ten Million PSUs Sold with Limited RM1000i Special Edition and New CORSAIR Premium PSU Cables

FREMONT, CA — November 30th, 2016 — CORSAIR®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components, today reached two new milestones, celebrating ten years since first entering the PSU market and the sale of the ten millionth CORSAIR PSU.

Over the past decade, CORSAIR has revolutionized the enthusiast PSU industry with an unrelenting commitment to product quality and innovation that has seen the PSU evolve from an after-thought into the high-quality heart of a modern PC. CORSAIR has championed a range of key features to push PC power supplies to new levels of performance, functionality and customization. Modular PSUs have made building PCs easier, Zero RPM fan mode allows the PSU’s fan to switch off entirely under low loads and with digitally controlled power and CORSAIR LINK PSU monitoring, users can find out exactly how their PSU is performing in an instant.

To commemorate this achievement, CORSAIR is proud to announce the extremely limited CORSAIR RM1000i Special Edition. Individually numbered, finished in striking arctic white and equipped with both a white LED-lit cooling fan and new individually sleeved white cables, only 100 of these PSUs will be built, giving enthusiasts a chance to own a unique piece of CORSAIR history.

Ten Million PSUs

With over ten million CORSAIR PSUs sold to customers around the world, CORSAIR has crunched the numbers to visualize this landmark. With every unit at full load, ten million PSUs could output more than 650 Megawatts; enough to power three Nimitz class aircraft carriers. What’s more, the combined length of all the cabling from ten million PSUs is enough to fully circle the globe (with 4,000 miles to spare). And the weight of ten million PSUs? Equivalent to four Eiffel Towers, 113 Statues of Liberty or 10,000 Asian Elephants!

RM1000i Special Edition

The RM1000i Special Edition showcases a beautiful arctic white finish while maintaining all the key features of the original RM1000i. Fully modular, 80 PLUS® Gold efficient and using 100% Japanese capacitors the RM1000i epitomizes the CORSAIR commitment to improved PSU features and quality.

Special customized, the limited run of RM1000i Special Edition PSUs is also equipped with a white LED-lit 120mm whisper-quiet fluid-dynamic bearing fan and a complete set of the new CORSAIR individually sleeved premium cables in matching white.

With 10 years of warranty, combined with 24/7 legendary CORSAIR global support, premium internal components and the addition of new premium PSU cables, the RM1000i Special Edition offers the chance to build your next PC around a unique part of CORSAIR history.

CORSAIR Premium PSU Cables for RMi, RMx and SF Series

The RM1000i Special Edition also sees the debut of the new CORSAIR Premium PSU Individually sleeved cables for CORSAIR RMi, RMx and SF series PSUs.

Enthusiasts can choose from red, black, white, blue, red/black, blue/black or white/black cable sets, easily matching their system’s theme and design.
