Corsair just made power supplies interesting, which I didn’t realize was possible

A few weeks ago, images of an odd-looking PSU from Corsair leaked out (opens in new tab). What made it so odd? Well, the connectors were on the “wrong” side. Could such an aberration be real? Yep: today Corsair officially announced the new RMx Shift ATX 3.0 (opens in new tab) line of PSUs, making it the “world’s first power supply with side-positioned connectors,” and honestly, I’m surprised no one has come up with this sooner. 

A standard power supply usually has its connectors on the rear of the unit. The Shift PSUs have theirs on the side, which should make it easy for you to access the power cables while promoting better cable management, which isn’t a strong suit for some PC builders (me included).
