Corsair HX850 850 W Full Modular 80 Plus Platinum 135 mm Fan ATX Power Supply Unit - Black
About this deal
There are also a few highlights of other features such as the single rail design and quality of build. The new HX850 comes with a full list of protections including short circuit, over voltage, over current, over power and over temperature protections.
the chances of catastrophic failure or needing to replace the PSU after 10 years or so on the dot has significantly diminished. According to our latest polls run on the main site and on social media, the most popular power supply capacities are 650 Watt and 750 Watt followed closely by 850 Watt units.

I hope so, but is there any chance that I might be limited if I ever decide to overclock in the future?Over the last 15 years I've gotten about 35-40 years or so of run time over 7 or 8 different PSUs in my personal computers.
Fully modular cables for easy installation, less clutter, and helps maximize airflow through your computer’s chassis. The filtering stage of the HX850 is typical for high output PSUs, with four Y capacitors, two X capacitors, and two filtering inductors. This result however does not mean that the unit’s certifications are false, just that it received its efficiency rating with an input voltage of 110 VAC, under which the 80Plus directive is slightly more lenient.

Corsair HX850 Fully Modular 80PLUS Platinum Power Supply/PSU 850W Corsair HX850, Full Modular, 80PLUS Platinum, SLI/CrossFire, Single/Multi Rail, 70.The modular cable set allows you to use only the cables you need for your particular set of components. The heatsinks of the HX850 are relatively small, even for an 80 Plus Platinum certified power supply. If your power supply isn’t efficient, it will generate more heat, which requires more cooling and more fan noise. The high efficiency of the Corsair HX850 allows the thermally controlled fan to stay inactive for a very large portion of the load range when the unit is operating in room temperature. 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.
Unfortunately it is starting to fall behind in the PSU market as newer, more efficient models have made it to the market. In Multiple mode each individual connector has over current protection with a limit of 40A set to each cable.In the ‘SINGLE’ position, the full output capability of the power supply’s 12V rail is available to any and all connectors, while in the ‘MULTIPLE’ position, each individual connector has Over-Current Protection so no more than 40A of current can be delivered on any given cable. Paintwork is deep and it proves difficult to scratch – this is more important than you think, as I have had power supplies mark very easily, simply by sliding them into the recess inside a new case. One side of the power supply is home to the modular bay, with three rows of ports all clearly labelled for ease of use during the build. The HX850 features full range fan control with a passive mode, meaning that the PSU’s thermal circuitry will not even start the fan unless airflow becomes necessary. Often overlooked, it is the component that is likely to last the longest, and it can be moved between systems when you upgrade to the latest and greatest in the future.

We take the issue of noise very seriously at KitGuru and this is why we have built a special home brew system as a reference point when we test noise levels of various components. Besides its 80 PLUS Platinum rating, this PSU also carries the ETA-B and LAMBDA-A+ efficiency and noise certifications from Cybenetics. Only the heatsink for the primary inversion circuit stands out, extending to form a small array of fins to increase its dissipation surface.
