Corsair Builder Series PSUs brings Corsair quality, reliability, and performance to entry level system builds

As keen PC modders and builders ourselves, my team and I at Corsair noticed a few years ago that most affordable power supplies on the market suffer from severe technical short comings. They were usually rated for “peak-power” instead of for continuous power output, and they were designed around crude, inefficient multiple power-rail architectures. This meant that they usually ran too hot, didn’t meet their promised specifications, and if each rail was not correctly loaded you would risk hitting overload conditions at well below the rated power. The result of our frustration was the development of the original Corsair ATX Power Supply range first launched in 2008, which set the Corsair PSU performance benchmark that survives to this day. Now, with the Builder Series™ range of power supplies, Corsair brings our award winning level of build quality, reliability, and performance down to easily affordable price points.
