Excerpt: Late last year we reviewed the Corsair Professional AX760i and AX860i power supplies with the Corsair Link feature. If the latter isn't as important to you, then the Corsair Professional AX760 and AX860 could be interesting. These two new PSUs have the same capacities, but are not equipped with Corsair Link. Today we will take a closer look at the two new entries in Corsair's Professional AX series.
Summary: The Corsair AX760 presented outstanding performance on our tests, and is one of the best power supplies we’ve ever reviewed. Its efficiency perfectly matched the numbers promised by the 80 Plus Platinum certification, noise and ripple levels were very low, and voltage regulation was outstanding, with the main positive voltages (+12 V, +5 V, and +3.3 V) within 1% of their nominal values.
Conclusion: Intense competition has forced PSU manufacturers to raise their game throughout 2012. Looking with particular focus on the premium end of the market, characterised by 80 PLUS Platinum supplies outfitted with fully-modular connections, there's little to choose between a raft of PSUs on a purely technical level. Differentiation in this space has more to do with manufacturer-specific features than all-out performance.
