Corsair have an extensive range of power supplies, some of the most heralded of which are the high-end HX and AX models. An equally important part of their lineup however is the entry level, including the VS-Series, which offers more affordable designs and a modest feature set for those who require it.

This week the VS-Series is quietly being refreshed with three new models: the VS450W (CP-9020170), VS550W (CP-9020171) and VS650W (CP-9020172). With a length of just 125mm, they offer 15mm more clearance than previous models in the series. Other aspects of the series remain the same - they are still rated at 80 PLUS efficiency (not quite up to the standards of 80 PLUS Bronze) and have a single 12V rail design.

These VS-Series models are have fixed rather than modular cabling, and so the added clearance may prove to be a substantial benefit in particularly cramped chassis. The connector standard is fairly unremarkable with a 24-Pin, 4+4 pin EPS (CPU power), two 6+2 pin PCIe for GPUs, seven SATA power, two 4-pin Molex and one still not quite phased out four-pin 'Berg' connector often used for floppy drives in the past.

Each PSU is also backed with a hefty 3 year warranty. US MSRP is as follows:

VS450W (CP-9020170):- $39.99
VS550W (CP-9020171):- $49.99
VS650W (CP-9020172):- $69.99
