Corsair Computer Power Supplies
Computer power supply is one of the most important components of a computer. Unfortunately, it's also one of the computer components people frequently overlook. It happens that most people fail to understand the importance of having a quality power supply unit until that day when an unexpected power surge fries everything in their chassis. With Corsair computer power supplies, you won't have to worry about power surges. Most Corsair power supply units come from Seasonic.
What are the Factors to Consider When Buying a PSU?
- The power output of the PSU: A good PSU should be able to supply the right wattage to the PC without dropping. You can use a power supply tester to find out if your power supply is delivering the right wattage.
- PSU Rails: Whether you get a multi-rail or a single rail depends on your area of residence. If you live in an area where there are normal power outages or fluctuations then consider getting a multi-rail power supply. Single-rail PSU is mostly preferable if you have a good uninterrupted power supply (UPS).
- Efficiency of the PSU: An efficient power supply unit tends to waste less power, has better components and generates less heat, and all these factors translate to less fan noise. If you get a PC power supply with an efficiency rating of 90 percent then it means it will provide 90 percent of its rated wattage as the power to your computer and lose 10 percent as heat.
Why should I buy Corsair power supplies?

Still, some fans are temperature-adjusted, meaning their speed of operation relies on how much the power supply produces. Corsair power supplies produce less heat.
