Quiet, effecient, versatile, and good price-to-peformance. Review for 850 watt version. Would be 4.5 if possilbe.
7 April 2014
Summary: I upgraded from a CX500 to this quiet optimized PSU and have been extremely happy. Pros: Noise: As advertised the unit is extremely quiet. There is absolutely no detectable coil whine, and the fan is also nearly silent. Also, the fan does not operate at all under idle and small loads. Efficiency: The unit is 80 plus Gold certified making it extremely power efficient for a PSU at this price. Modular: unit is fully modular with clean looking black ribbon-style cables.
Summary: OMG this is the fastest free shipping i have ever gotten from amazon ever. I love the feel of the corsair 850W feels like its very good build and amazing quality. Im so happy i'm going corsair every fan in my case is corsair and i'm very proud to have corsair power supply in my case. Yes it's a little expansive but you know you get a great deal. I really recommend it for everyone to use.
Summary: The 80+Gold rating on this power supply is what first got me here and then the corsair quality is what really made it stand out. This is definitely one of the more expensive 850Watt power supplies you can by but this thing is worth it. It comes with fully modular flat cables that are very easy to work with when it comes to cable management. The connectors on the cable where on the stiff side but once they where all connected this really isn't a problem.
