Corsair cx rm Japanese capacitors?
I have a question are the corsair rm and cx made of Japanese capacitors?
The updated CX line introduced last year has a combination of both, at least in the the CX750M variant. According to a JohnnyGuru teardown of the newer version of the CX line that uses Channel Well:
"Most critical parts are Japanese - Nippon Chemi-Con. The non critical stuff is either Samxon or Taicon. I can live with that. This is another improvement on the original unit, which relied a little more on Capxon parts."
They found the same in an RM750x teardown:
It makes sense since both PSU lines use Channel Well as the OEM core PSU vendor.

As the other guy said in an apparent different post thread of yours, it's the same thing with the 550W variant: Japanese in the most critical areas, Chinese/Hong Kong in non-mission critical areas. Also, please just post one question per topic to avoid confusion in different threads.
