Corsair HX850 Gold 850W Power Supply Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Tweak Town have posted a review of the enthusiast orientated Corsair HX850W GOLD 850 watt modular power supply which is certified for 80PLUS Gold efficiency.
Let's see what they had to say:
"Normally, when a manufacturer does a product refresh, it is for one of two reasons. Either they have found a way to manufacturer the unit at the same level of performance of substantially lower costs or they have brought improvements to the unit that makes it more competitive with the current market. The new HX850 from Corsair is most certainly in the latter category. The results above show that it performs very well all the way around. The bump from 80Plus Silver to Gold was very nice to see and the unit does a great job showing the increased efficiency.
We re-ran the tests on this unit and pulled out another power supply just to confirm that our scope was still working correctly as this level of DC output quality is just amazing.
Add in the top notch build quality of the unit and the fantastic seven year warranty and Corsair has an almost flawless unit with the HX850."
This is an excellent upgrade to the original HX850, but if you want the very best you should check out the Corsair AX850 as it is even more efficient.
