Product Overview

The VS Series offers a high quality name with 85% efficiency at affordable pricing. The VS Series offers many upgrades from traditional designs. It is black with black cable sleeving and black connectors, offers a large diameter, thermally controller fan, and is nearly silent when running at idle.

Real power
The VS550 delivers a guaranteed 550 Watts of continuous power. With 0.99 Active Power Factor Correction, you get the peace of mind from knowing that your components are protected from uneven power delivery. And, a dedicated single +12V rail saves you from the hassle of balancing your components across multiple power cables.

Low noise, high efficiency
The 120mm fan is thermally controlled, so it only spins at maximum speed when it’s pushed hard – and even at full load, it’s pretty quiet. Smart design features like this are why VS550 offers up to 85% efficiency. Your PC system will generate less heat, and you’ll enjoy lower energy bills.

Sophisticated design
The black powder-coated enclosure and the black-sleeved cables give any system a polished look. You’re building a PC, not a battleship, and with the VS550 you can avoid that look of unpainted steel that you’ll find on so many entry-level power supplies.

Reliability you can count on
VS550 is backed with a three-year warranty, and you get lifetime access to Corsair’s legendary technical support and customer service.

Question  Modular or Non Modular by Ben

Are all the cables in this psu fixed to the unit of do you have to plug them into the psu unit yourself?

Answer by declant on Wednesday, December 21, 2016
Hi Ben,

Yes there are. You do not need to connect them yourself.

Question  Cales by Ollie

Does this PSU come with a SATA power and data cable?

Answer by shaund on Saturday, January 9, 2016
Hi Ollie,

It only comes with power cables, PSU's very very rarely come with any Data cables.

Question  Question by Mat

Would this support a NVIDIA GTX 970 WindForce OC 4GB Graphics Card with the PCI-E Power connectors? Or Would I need to use a Molex to 8 pin?

Answer by shaund on Thursday, May 28, 2015
The minimum for a GTX 970 is a 550W PSU, you'll be fine with the PCI-E adapters on this PSU.

Question  White? by Sean

As far as I know, there is no such thing as an 80 plus "white"? there is only standard, bronze, silver, gold, platinum, and titanium... no white. Is this trying to refer to 80 plus STANDARD or is it a lie and just shameless marketing?

Answer by shaund on Friday, April 3, 2015
80+ White is just another term for Standard.
