    Re: Corsair's Andy Paul explains Corsair's approach to power supplies

    All I want to know is who makes each one now. Are Seasonic still making any or are they all CWT now?

    Just bought another Seasonic as I can't be sure who make the Corsair supplies any more, and if I don't know who make them, I'm not going to put my hard-earned towards them.

    Is this just another Hiper where they're all out to win awards, potentially at a loss, build up a client base and reputation, then reap the rewards by selling cheaper supplies dressed-up? We can't even be sure that review samples are the same as what are on the shelf, or even if models on the shelf are identical.

    Re: Corsair's Andy Paul explains Corsair's approach to power supplies

    HX520 = Seasonic
    HX620 = Seasonic
    VX450 = Seasonic
    VX550 = CWT
    TX650 = Seasonic
    TX750 = CWT

    ^^ I'm still working off that assumption, from Yellowbeard Oct/Nov last year.

    Why do you put that guitar stuff on the background? It only makes it harder to understand the speaker, with no added value whatsover. Please remove it and don't do that in the future either.

    I kept 6 trusted serving men, they taught me all I knew.
    There names were what and where and why and how and when and who.

    True, you can hear him, just about. The guitar music is EXTREMELY off putting, I turned it off half way through. I agree with semi.

    It's as though the speakere is secondary to the music, what's more important?
