Corsair RMx SHIFT ATX 3.0 PSU Released – Has Unique Side-Position Connectors (Upddated)

Share this:

Corsair recently released its latest and unique power supply – the Corsair RMx SHIFT Series ATX 3.0. What’s unique about this PSU is its side-position connectors. This means the power cables’ ports are on the side and not on the usual front side. However, the RMx SHIFT may not be compatible with all chassis types. It’s best suited for tower chassis with openings and room for cable management on the (rear bottom) side. You’ll see what I mean from the photos below. The RMx SHIFT PSU series is available from 750W up to 1200W. Unfortunately, this PSU doesn’t have the new 16-pin 12VHPWR connector. You can learn more about Corsair’s RMx SHIFT PSU from the official news release below.

UPDATE: The Corsair RMx SHIFT ATX 3.0 PSU is now available on here.

CORSAIR Launches Innovative New RMx SHIFT ATX 3.0 PSUs, Making It Easier than Ever to Build Your PC

World’s first power supply with side-positioned connectors offers superior cable management and ease of access.

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, 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.

  1. Such a confusing article. You say it doesn’t have a PCIe 5.0 12VHPWR GPU cable but then it says it does have it. So which one is correct?

    • Hi Jeremy,
      Sorry about the confusion. If you look at the photo, the PSU does not have the PCIe 5.0 12VHPWR connector. It doesn’t support it natively.
      And Corsair’s press release only mentioned “With an included high-quality PCIe 5.0 12VHPWR GPU cable“. It’s just an 8-pin to 16-pin (12VHPWR) cable adapter. And not a native 16-pin 12VHPWR to 16-pin 12VHPWR connector.
      I hope this clarifies things.
