MILPITAS, CA, January 31st, 2023 – CORSAIR® (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced the revolutionary RMx SHIFT Series of ATX 3.0 certified power supplies, giving custom PC enthusiasts a new way to build. Available in wattages from 750W up to 1200W, these fully modular 80 PLUS Gold-certified PSUs feature the DC connector panel on the side of the unit, granting easier access to your cables and simpler, cleaner cable management.

The RMx SHIFT Series’ repositioned side panel (patent-pending) gives you a clear view and better access to all modular micro-fit connections, making connecting and maintaining your cables a breeze. Not only does this make attaching and detaching cables easy, it also means they won’t be bent or twisted as much to reach the connectors, resulting in less strain and a cleaner build.

Every model of RMx SHIFT is ATX 3.0 certified and PCIe 5.0 compliant for powering the latest cutting-edge systems, helping to improve overall system performance and reliability while providing the power needed to operate at the highest levels. With an included high-quality PCIe 5.0 12VHPWR GPU cable, the RMx SHIFT Series is ready for use with modern graphics cards such as the NVIDIA® GeForce™ RTX 40 Series.

The RMx SHIFT Series comes equipped with all the features that PC builders have come to expect from the RMx name. Only connect the cables your system needs thanks to fully modular CORSAIR Type 5 Gen 1 micro-fit cables. A 140mm fluid dynamic bearing fan utilizes a specially calculated fan curve for high performance, low noise, and superior reliability, with support for Zero RPM fan mode for near-silent operation at low loads. 80 PLUS Gold and Cybenetics Gold-certified, the RMx SHIFT Series is rated for steady power output at up to 90% efficiency. 100% 105°C-rated Japanese electrolytic capacitors guarantee unwavering power delivery and long-term durability.

CORSAIR has tested the RMx SHIFT in all current CORSAIR cases to guarantee compatibility, and has already updated the online PC Builder database with the most popular third party cases. CORSAIR is hard at work verifying compatibility with most third party cases and will continue to add that information to the PC Builder database over the coming weeks. As a general guideline, a minimum clearance of 30mm of open space to the side of the bottom compartment is necessary to accommodate the side-positioned connector panel.

For a new perspective on how to build and connect your next PC, look for the RMx SHIFT Series and get a PSU that’s on your side.

The CORSAIR RMx SHIFT Series of power supplies is available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Back in my day, we didn't need no fancy connector! 12v was 12v! Even in the snow! And we liked it that way!

Honestly how are the RMx supplies these days, quality wise? They're probably the only Corsair PSU I don't know off hand.

Depending on the PSU bay on modern cases, it can be a real pain to plug in extra connectors after install. I think this might start a new trend and it's a great idea.

From the Reviews I have read they seem to be one of the top PSU's, though these aren't JonnyGuru reviews soooo. I'm still running an RM850 from 2014 plus I've mined on it 24/7 for nearly 2 years straight. Still going strong and relatively quiet.

I wholeheartedly agree. There are a few cases out there where the PSU mounts to a plate and then slides in from the rear. That could be a problem, but for 90+% of ATX towers, this should be a great innovation.

...that's why I always added an extra peripherals plug or PCIe plug when installing it. If I get more peripherals or a more powerful GPU, the cords are already there. This thwarts planning ahead, lol.

This kinda defeats the purpose of modularity, no? LMAO

:rofl:, indeed. But, it's hidden in a box (where the PSU hides) in the first place... so it's more like if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... does it make a sound? Here though, if the cord is hidden, is really bothersome? :p

...but that's better than not being modular at all. :)
