Corsair products

Joshua L., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: Since when does a 850W Gold Rated PSU cost the same as a additional GPU? I've been in the computer building scene for years and I never bought into these pricey PSU's. The only reason this power supply is in my current build is due to it being purchased used in a pre-built system.
  • Pros: +Good appearance & design +Cable management with ease +GOLD RATED
  • Cons: -PRICE, PRICE & PRICE!

Beware of power outages

Brandon M., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: Is there a way I can RMA my power supply or exchange it for another one?
  • Pros: It is an decent power supply for gamers like me. SLI ready and it holds up good.
  • Cons: Apparently the Corsair HX850 does not like power surges and power outages. After about 5 months, it is now causing my system to power off unexpectantly and reboot.

Silent unless working very hard

Samuel A., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Pros: Completely silent during normal operation. Fan doesn't need to run, until more than 40% load. Running with I5 4690 and NVidia 970 power supply fan stays off except when gaming. Haven't put case sides on yet so power supply is still whisper quiet even from few inches away.
  • Cons: Only some of the cables are modular?

Love it!

Chris R., Newegg
6 May 2015
  • Pros: I'm very pleased with the wide variety of PSU's (power supply unit) Corsair has to offer. I'll admit I was a little confused about all the models they had. ex. AX, HX, RM, CS, CX & VS. However after researching them on Corsair's website, it made the choice for me much easier. The fan is very quie...

Like the Mod. Received broken

Jessie G., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Summary: Sad that this otherwise easy set-up and more powerful supply was broken. going to try and get a replacement or possibly a refund.
  • Pros: I have never owned a modular power supply. I love it. Installing was easy and the box itself is not too bulky. The modular option made cable management pretty easy I am a beginner at that sort of thing and while it was not the cleanest management ever, it looked way better than what I had before.
  • Cons: I unfortunately received a dud power supply. after rigorous trouble shooting it was determined and confirmed by others that the power supply simply was inoperable.

annoying whinning noise

Edward M., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Pros: So far a very good and stable power supply except for the constant whining noise.
  • Cons: After about two weeks of use the power supply is now whining constantly and gets louder under load, very annoying and not acceptable. I would not recommend this PSU. I'm returning this one and trying a 850W EVGA.
