The semi-passive power supplies by Corsair

The famous manufacturer of memory reveals its second TX power supply series with three interesting models.

The original but already known concept of semi-passive power supply, enters in the Corsair TX series. Three references will be equipped with this system to control the fan speed. In case of low load, the module cut ventilation to take advantage of passive cooling and restarts once the temperature threshold is reached.

The TX series is in the middle-range of the Corsair catalog. These PSUs aim customers looking for quality at a controlled price. The TX-650, TX-750 and TX-850 models, whose reference indicates power, are very close to the 1 series features. The design seems to be strictly similar and there is also the 80 Plus Bronze certification. Only apparent change, they are not modular.

The hybrid cooling system already existed on the AX (high-end) PSUs from Seasonic, for example. We Presume that  increasing the components quality will generalize this technology in the future.
