Legendary Performance and Reliability
Quiet operation at low loads, modular cabling and 80 PLUS® Gold efficiency makes HX Series PSUs a great choice for high-performance PCs.
Quiet operation at low loads
Basic PC power supplies have fans that spin whenever your PC is on – whether you’re pushing your graphics card to the limit or just surfing the web. HX Series power supplies are smarter than that: they generate less heat, so they require less cooling, and the thermally controlled fan only spins when it’s needed.
Slay the cable kraken
The modular cable set allows you to use only the cables you need for your particular set of components. There’s no more unwieldy mythical tentacled monstrosity of unused cables to clutter up the inside of your case.
High efficiency for lower energy consumption and less heat generation
Efficiency is the measurement of how well a power supply converts the AC power from your outlet to the DC power used by your PC’s components. If your power supply isn’t efficient, it will generate more heat, which requires more cooling and more fan noise. And, it might even affect your power bill.
HX Series PSUs are among the most efficient on the market. They help keep your PC cool and quiet, and your power bill down.

I had faith in Corsair when they first launched their HS1A headset, though it disappointed me in the end. I did not give up, and now they're selling some of the most well built products in the industry. I am extremely pleased with this purchase ($159) and look forward to seeing new releases from Corsair in the future.
Despite the short 8-pin connector and the handful of non-modular cables this is all-around a spectacular PSU. Although I just got it, my old Corsair HX520 has lasted absolutely fine for over 5 years now and is still kicking. Corsair builds excellent, high-quality stuff; you can really feel the quality of this thing.
I preferred this over the Seasonic M12 850W, I have both. Have enough 6+2pins for two, three videocards. Good build and feel heavy, the modular connections are flat, not braided. The CPU 8pin connector length is adequate but too short if you want to run behind the case. Include and extension for the 8pin would be nice.
Having purchased and used a Corsair HX620 from NCIX.com in the past I had no hesitation in purchasing the HX850. My HX620 has never given me any problems for that last 4 years so I was confident that the HX850 would meet all my needs for the next 4 with its power and stability.
This PSU is everything I think I will ever need, I just needed something to replace my OCZ 700W when I dropped in a second 5870. The PSU is build solid, the cables are just the right length for my 650D, the fan is silent, and I can tell this unit is gonna last a long time.
My major complaint is the modular cables. They are not sleeved, but rather a ribbon type arrangement. This is problematic in two ways: The 24pin, 8pin, and 2x6+2pin cords perminately attached to the PSU are sleeved and look nothing like these cables. Next, The modular PCI-e cables are horrible. The eight wires are run in two sets of 4, so they come apart in the middle, and they have this stupid cylindrical object near the card-side of the cable.
