Corsair has been producing high quality, high speed memory modules for mission-critical servers, high-end workstations and the PC enthusiasts market since 1994. Their memory, from the cost effective Value Select range to their flagship Dominator range, is renowned for its quality and performance. Corsair still concentrates their resources on producing high quality memory modules, but today also offer a range of products aimed at the PC enthusiast and mainstream market. The Corsair product catalog now includes solid state and USB drives, PC enclosures, cooling solutions and power supplies. Corsair recently introduced three Professional Series Gold power supplies, the AX range, with DC output powers of 750 W, 850 W and 1200 W. They all carry 80 Plus Gold certification and come with a fully modular cabling system, making them Corsair's current flagship range. I recently put the AX1200 through its paces and it turned out to be one of the best units I have ever tested. This time it's the turn of the AX850 so let's have a close look and see how well this one performs.
Sometimes big things come in small packages. In today's review, a small thing comes in a large package. A VERY large package. How large, you ask? The Corsair AX850 power supply comes in a box that is 15.5" long. That's 309mm! One would think that with a box this large, there must be something large inside. Certainly, more than just a power supply. Perhaps every Corsair AX850 comes with a 6GB kit of Dominator GT DDR3 memory and a 128GB Voyager thumb drive? Oooh... one could only hope. Well, before we crack the seal on this box and see what's actually inside, let's see what kind of propaganda Corsair puts on all of this real estate. In five languages, I am told that this in a high-performance ATX power supply. On the back of the box, again in five languages, I am given quite the back story: Wow! Talk about setting the bar high. "Mission-critical stability", "one of the best", "90% efficiency at 50% load".... That's why we're here today folks! Way in the lower right hand side of the back of the box, we have the DC output capability of this power supply....
