Corsair HX850W Power SupplyJul 5th, 2010 | By Anthony
Corsair power supplies have long since been a favorite among computer enthusiasts, overclockers and casual users alike, and have built quite the reputation for being affordable, yet top-tier performing power supplies. Corsair’s HX series of power supplies is a rather long standing family including units from 450W to 1000W, today we’ll be looking at the 850W variant. The HX series, or the professional series, is aimed at performance and high end systems. The HX850W in particular, is a DC-DC unit, which as we’ve found in the past can be attributed to some of the best units we have seen.
Corsair has been in the industry for quite some time now and they certainly have brought with them a long list of credentials. Since 1994, Corsair has been producing performance memory modules targeting specifically demanding computing applications such as servers, work stations, and gaming computer systems. Since then, Corsair has expanded their reach to include power supplies, cooling products and flash memory modules.
