Conclusion: While this is far from a complete test of this PSU, it does show that there should be no issues with Noise/Ripple. I’d urge anyone considering this unit to check out some more in-depth reviews for efficiency and overload tests, but we can confirm that there are no safety problems with this unit.
Pros: Passes all noise/ripple tests, Solid build quality, Nice lighting effects, Quiet, fan only coming on when needed
Corsair Gaming Series GS800 800W Power Supply review
26 June 2012
Excerpt: 4 Flares 4 Flares × Today we are looking at the latest power supply from Corsair, the Gaming Series GS800 – an 800W unit firmly targeting the mainstream enthusiast audience. This 80Plus Bronze Certified unit is a non modular design with a single +12V rail, supported by a three year warranty.
Summary: Another power supply has hit our testbench and this time we have a look at the GS800 from Corsair. A brand new good looking power supply, featuring a whole 800W of raw power with an 80 Plus Bronze certification.
Summary: Decent is the word that comes to mind when I think about the Corsair GS800 PSU, now the product itself has been on the market for quite a while already. But this particular model is popular and mentioned by our readers quite often, we can see why. So I was happy to get it reviewed.
Conclusion: The Corsair GS800 is a PSU whose aesthetics are designed to draw the gamer. Equipped with multi-coloured LEDs and presented in a nice-looking chassis, the £80 supply is based on a modern architecture from CWT and has strong performance across the board.
Conclusion: The GS800 has actually performered way better than I expected it to do, I have here in Sweden seen it go for as low as 70$ on sale which means this is a “bang for the buck” unit. Newegg has this unit for 99$ after a mail in rebate but this is not on sale.
Summary: The Corsair GS800 exhibited fairly good overall performance in all tests except the Advanced Transient ones where the 3.3V rail registered high voltage drops. On the contrary during the same tests we saw excellent performance from the +12V line, which is the most significant rail in a contemporary...
Pros: Good voltage regulation at +12V, Efficiency that reaches 86% with 50% load, although the PSU is only 80PLUS certified, Handles full power flawlessly at 50 °C ambient, Excellent ripple suppression at 3.3V and good enough at +12V and 5V, Performed great in Turn-On Transient tests, Switchable LED li...
Cons: A little stiff price, 3.3V rail registered high voltage drops in Advanced Transient Response tests, Loose voltage regulation at 3.3V (but still, Only one EPS connector
Summary: The new Corsair GS800 is a terrific power supply for its price point, and we highly recommend it if you are looking for an 800 W unit with a good cost/benefit ratio.
Even though it only has the standard 80 Plus certification, we saw efficiency up to 85.7%, and we could pull up to 1,000 W from it...
Conclusion: Corsair siempre ha sido sinónimo de buen hacer y cada día confirmamos este hecho; el fabricante californiano se ha convertido en un referente en fuentes de alimentación y otro tipo de hardware como los discos SSD.
Pros: Gran estabilidad en los voltajes, 80PLUS Bronze que llega al 85%, Bajo consumo en standby, Garantía de 3 años, Ventilador con LEDs de varios colores, Relación prestaciones/precio insuperable
