    I do think they don't have the DSP thing the AX1200i has. They do have a 140mm fan instead of the AXs' 120mm fans (except 1200 and 1200i). Electrically, I suppose they're using a similar Seasonic platform.

    Says they do under the products description:

    http://www.corsair.com/en/power-sup...-watt-80-plus-gold-certified-modular-psu.html

    "Digital Signal Processor (DSP) for delivering extremely clean, efficient power with real-time adjustments"

    Plus they've got the fan that turns off at low loads, think ill be getting one of these on release.

    Even the 650w one has the DSP according to this:

    Weird, they didn't advertise it. Also makes little sense, since they only showcased the 1200i with Corsair Link. My guess is that it's a mistake, maybe it's best to wait for reviews. Not that it's a bad power supply either way.

    None of the Corsair PSU's have DSP other than the AX1200i.

    The new HX quality is "up there", but it's still not AX quality. Also, AX is fully modular where HX is only semi-modular.

    Maybe better than old AX line, but they will update to AX probably to all platinum, like the AX1200i
