AX860 ATX Power Supply — 860 Watt 80 PLUS® PLATINUM Certified Fully-Modular PSU (NA) (Refurbished)

AX Series™ PSUs offer world-class performance, with 80 PLUS PLATINUM-certified efficiency, low noise, fully modular cable sets, and high reliability for extreme performance systems.

Stable power delivery, silent operation, less energy consumption, and easier, better-looking builds

The AX860 offers ultra-clean power delivery for protecting your PC’s critical components. The efficient design uses less power and operates silently at low to medium loads, and the fully modular cable set helps make installation fast and easy, with better-looking results.

Less heat generation and lower operating costs

Excess heat means wasted energy. 80 PLUS Platinum certified efficiency means less waste.

Zero RPM mode for silent operation at low loads

The fan doesn’t even spin when your system is idle or doing basic work like surfing the web or running office applications.

Easy installation

The fully modular cable set lets you use only the cables you need. You can install the AX Series first and then add cables one-by-one without having to deal with the dreaded “cable octopus."

Stable, reliable power output

High-quality components and careful design help ensure maximum protection for your PC’s components.

Flexible and compatible

AX Series comes with long cables for large cases, and lots of connectors for just about any hardware configuration.

Fully modular connection system with low-profile cables

All of the power cables have connectors on both ends, with nothing hard-wired to the PSU. This makes for easier installs (you don’t need to deal with an octopus of cables while you’re putting in the power supply), and you can add cables one-by-one, using only the cables you need. The result is a cleaner-looking build, with better airflow.

Clean, stable power delivery

High-quality capacitors, a dedicated single +12V rail and a PF value of 0.99 give you reliable power output with extremely low ripple and noise. Over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, and short circuit protection provide maximum safety for your critical system components. And, AX860 is engineered to meet maximum power output at a server-grade 50° C temperature rating.

Wide compatibility

The AX Series conforms to ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 standards, and is backward compatible with the ATX12V 2.2 and ATX12V 2.01 standards. It accepts universal AC input from 90V - 264V. Safety approvals include cTUVus, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TÜV, CCC, and C-tick

AX860 wins Editor's Choice from TechPowerUP!

To sum up, if you don't need the extra features of the AX860i (mainly the software monitoring/control) and want the top performing PSU of a capacity under 1 kW, the new AX860 was made for you. It costs a lot, I know, but nothing good in this life comes for free, right?

KitGuru gives non-digital AX760 and AX860 the Must Have award.

“There are certainly cheaper options on the market, but in this case you certainly get what you pay for.” “The pure modular design will prove popular with a wide audience of case modders who want to fine tune their cabling for ultimate appearance. The high grade 120mm Sanyo Denki fan is very quiet, even when dealing with a very high, active load.” “These are excellent power supplies, but to be perfectly honest we expect this now from Corsair, their overall standards in a wide cross section of sectors have been without reproach this year. Both AX760 and AX860 ship with a seven year warranty and they are clearly confident that these units are built to last.”

AX860 wins Hardware Heaven Gold award

For performance the 12, 3.3 and 5v results were all good with efficiency easily meeting the Platinum spec. Temperatures were good too with impressive AC Ripple readings also. The highlight is of however the unit's ability to run fanless up to 60% load which means for the majority of systems it will offer silent operation for the majority of tasks.
