Pretty much. 80% Bronze now, plus $10+- more expensive

Small tidbid, from what I hear, the V2's are all Seasonic

This time I think Corsair should have drafted up a new CWT design or Superflower. Still very good for a refresh.

Also the 12v, amps are higher than the previous series with being more efficient.

Least they improved, which is good.

They learned from the old TX series, don't change the OEM without changing the model name slightly. These are the same units as the new XFX core series made by Seasonic for the most part. Now Corsair needs to learn to stick with 1 OEM for a model line, people want to buy the platform, not the spec.

True that. I believe the original TX line was part SS, part CWT PSH, II, and DSG

In corsairs defence, they tried on many occasions, but the OEM didn't have a platform ready for their wattage lineup (AX Series, with the 1200 being Flextronics, not seasonic).

From that standpoint I see it, if my OEM only has say half of the platforms ready to go, I'll find someone else so I can release the whole lineup.
So long as they are quality OEM's I won't complain.
