The Corsair GS Series™ power supply units are the ideal price-performance solutions for gamers who want stylish, high-performance PSUs for their next PC builds or upgrades and have been for about two years now. We have decided that it was time for a makeover and much more than just a cosmetic makeover. The Gaming Series PSUs have been given esoteric and aesthetic improvements AND they have been improved internally to meet the 80 PLUS® Bronze specification.
The new Gaming Series PSUs now come with a PSU cooling fan that is color LED switchable to red, white, and blue (blue only on the GS600) .
Also, the chassis has a much more rugged industrial look, and has the ability to change the blue ring to red or white (the trim rings will be available soon on from Corsair.com). Along with the fan color options, users can more easily customize the look of their PSU and the color themes.
With a bit of engineering wizardry, the Gaming Series PSUs now meet the 80 PLUS Bronze standard meaning that they provide you more power for your PC with less AC power wasted as heat. This also translates into a less expensive PSU to operate.
These improvements make a great PSU line even better. The color options make them even more appealing to gamers and to those users that desire flexibility in making their chosen PSU compliment their theme or coloring scheme in their rigs. And, they are more efficient than ever before so it's a win — win situation!
