Still Going

Erik F., Newegg
26 February 2015
  • Pros: I have been running mine since early 2011. The power supply has not had a hiccup yet. So it appears that the lifetime is highly variable.
  • Cons: Not cheap.

Fantastic PSU

DANIEL L., Newegg
31 August 2013
  • Summary: I own a 800D case and it's a bit tight getting the 12V Motherboard cable attached. It was a tight fit and hasn't caused any structural damage on both motherboards I've used since owning this PSU.
  • Pros: The gold certification really does make a difference. I noticed about a $5 difference on my power bills once I got this. It's been working flawlessly for over two years now and will pay for itself should it last another 2.
  • Cons: Price (but you get what you pay for), however it should pay for itself over time.

Corsair AX850

Esdras L., Newegg
24 July 2013
  • Summary: Great PSU, but if you're going the Haswell way, or just have some extra money, get the upgraded version of this, the AX860 or AX860i, the exact same PSU except it has 80PLUS Platinum, supports Haswell's low-power states, and is black and red instead of gold and red.
  • Pros: Modular Decently Priced 80PLUS Gold Sleeved Cables (but not individually sleeved :( ) Quiet Runs fairly cool
  • Cons: Cables seemed a little short at first, but with proper routing they'll be fine. There are on instructions on which cables go where on the PSU, only which way plugs into the PSU and which way plugs into the components... took me awhile to figure out which space was for what cable on the PSU.

  • Summary: Replaced an Antec 750 not modular and it is my backup. Nothing wrong with it but I like having a reliable backup as well.
  • Pros: I have enjoyed the responsiveness of this power supply. I handles my computer well and then some.
