Pros - Fully modular - Clean cable sleeves - You can buy individual sleeved cables in different colors off the Corsair website! - Fan only goes on when needed
Cons - A little bit on the pricey side, but for what you get, it's worth it!
Summary Had this for 6 months running an i7 3770k overclocked to 4.5Ghz and running 2 GTX 660s in SLI. It's still pumping juice into my rig very well and doesn't waste power by having the fan on un-necessarily. Great PSU!
Summary Awesome PSU. Very easy to install and easy to keep things looking neat and tidy. Plenty of power for everything and then some, it's definitely the best 850w power supply in my experience. It's quiet and runs perfectly well, would definitely recommend.
Cons Some of the modular cable designs are not the best.
Summary This has been the best PSU I have ever owned. The only complaint I have with it is how some of the cables have 2 cables going into 1 pin hole, or are split between two other connectors. Which makes it very difficult to make your cables flat and straight. Even so, I was able to mod the cables fairly easy to be individually sleeved. As long as Corsair continues to build these PSU's I will continue to use them in my builds.
Pros Single rail design. Solid power. 80+ Gold efficiency. Fully modular. Very quiet. Seasonic design in Corsair colors.
Cons If you don't get it on sale, it does feel a bit pricey.
Summary I bought my first AX850 a couple years back and it's still going strong. What originally drew me to it back then was the fact that it was an extremely well built single rail design, very efficient, and extremely quiet. I now own a number of these powering a variety of different systems including a dual processor Opteron 6180SE server.
If you need a solid 850 watt PSU, look no further!
Pros Efficient, small, powerfull, really well built and silent
Cons Mot really
Summary Want a small body power supply but still able to run my HD6970 crossfire to replace my Silverstone D850. The DA850 is a great psu but for my project a need the smallest 850w. And the AX850 being a 80+ Gold make it even better n 169$
"We expected to feel let down by the AX850 after our great experience with the AX1200 but in the end we were equally impressed by the lower specification model. In fact in some respects, such as the cooling fan performance, it is more impressive than the high end unit. Corsairs exceptional range of
