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. Last summer, we looked at Corsair's TX750W power supply, and today we are going to follow that up with Corair's TX850W.
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.
Corsairs TX line of power supplies is aimed directly at the value market, bringing to the table features and specifications found more commonly in much more expensive units. The TX series offers a single dedicated 12V rail, 80 Plus efficiency, a 140mm cooling fan for quiet operation and a price tag which rivals budget power supplies.
When we tested the TX750W last summer, we were incredibly pleased with the results. Only a small handful of products earn our Editor's Choice award, and the TX750W walked home with one. The TX750W offered performance matching some of the best units on the market for an absolutely stunning price. We have high expectations for today's unit.
