Yes, a Corsair PSU will be part of my next buid but it will be athe AX750. These would have been nice for when I build my server but I got a steal of a deal on a cheap OCZ PSU and couldn't resist. I wouldn't mind seeing Coarsair push out a really low wattage PSU as my server is an AMD E-350 board and I could get a new PSU for that and repurpose the OCZ one for backup/testing etc.
