Corsair HX850W Professional Series - Gives You Professional ...
17 February 2012
Summary: The power supply is the true backbone to the computer, without it we wouldn't have any power to use the computer. When choosing a power supply you need to pick one with enough watt power to operate your computer, too little and it will be running far too hard and you will potentially harm your computer. That's why for me I like to buy one around 700 watts.
Pros: up to 850W, plenty of peace of mind, lots of connectors if you need it.
Summary: This power supply comes shipped in a velvet bag with all the extra cables in their own bag as well. I am using this in a bottom mount position(Corsair C70 case with Asus Z87-A mobo) with the cables running around the back of the case and the cables all had plenty of length and seem to be of high quality. The modular design allows such a beautiful case interior I wish I could show you a picture of inside my case.
Summary: It's a semi modular meaning, the motherboard power connectors are not removable. I didn't take away any stars for that as they are required and having them permantly and directly attached to the power rails is actually a plus. It is quit which is another plus. A power indicator LED would make this a perfect PSU.
Summary: I bought this power supply 3 years ago and used it in a high end gaming PC I built. It was easy to install, came with good instructions and has performed flawlessly for the last 3 years of daily use. I will be buying another one of these for my next PC build.
Summary: First and foremost it is a Corsair product and, therefore, a top of the line power PSU. This is a very nice modular unit with plenty of power connectors for SATA abd IDE devices. Runs very quiet and its 850 watt rating should cover all the periphials in your arsenal with plenty of room left over. Don't hesitate to choose this Corsair power supply for your build.
