Full Review! By Techdadreview Posted on June 19, 2009 Hardware Secrets gives the HX850W their Golden Award Corsair HX850W is an impressive power supply, being to this date the power supply with the highest efficiency that we've ever tested, beating Seasonic M12D 750W and Antec Signature 650W. Full Review! By HWLegend Posted on July 30, 2012 TechPowerUp Highly Recommended the Corsair HX850 Gold and it also scores 9/10. "To conclude, the new HX850 is an excellent unit which enjoys great support from Corsair through its seven year warranty. If you need a similar-capacity PSU and you have enough money to invest - since the purchase of a PSU is actually an investment for many reasons - then you should seriously consider it. Nevertheless, at this price range, you will find many other interesting alternatives with equally high performance (e.g., the excellent Corsair AX850 is currently sold for 10 bucks less at Newegg). In my opinion, Corsair should lower the price of the new HX850 a little bit, to make it much more competitive." Full Review! By PC Perspective Posted on July 30, 2012 Corsair HX850 Gold PSU wins the "Performance" award at HardwareHeaven "For performance the HX850 is right up there with the best mid-high end units. It provides very stable readings across all load ranges and high efficiency. Like the rest of Corsairs recent PSUs this model also remains completely silent up to 20-25% load and is also quiet right up to and beyond 75% with exhaust temperatures always at a low level."

By TechPowerUp Posted on June 13, 2009 Jonny Guru recommends the HX850W The long wait for a modular 850W unit from Corsair is at last over, and I do hereby declare that this unit was worth waiting for. Not only is this the most efficient Corsair I've ever looked at, it's also the best performing. Full Review! By TweakTown Posted on September 18, 2009 Bjorn 3D gives the HX85W their Golden Bear award As mentioned before, this PSU could have been certified 80 Gold, which is the highest certification of PSU's. Instead Corsair decided to make sure that every unit would live up to the certification, and thus lowered it to Silver. Again this shows what kind of company Corsair really is, one that you can stand behind, and be sure they will stand behind their warranty 110%. Full Review! By Gamezoom Posted on June 18, 2009 The Corsair HX850W wins Driver Heaven's Editor's Choice award The exceptional build quality and the outstanding electrical performance are the primary selling points of the HX850W. Corsair truly built this unit like a tank, choosing one of the latest base designs and some of the most reliable components currently available. This has an impact on its electrical performance too, with the HX850W being remarkably efficient and stable. Full Review!
