OC3D Review: Corsair TX850w ATX PSU

"Corsair's modular HX series have proven to be extremely popular with enthusiasts, but can it's hard-wired brother the TX win our hearts?"

If they did it in modular format I'd be using one in my new build no question

Nice review. Just like you, I think it needs to come in a modular version too.

I was gonna get the 1100W version but I settled for the Silverstone NV1000, maybe in my next build

Great review mate!

Woahh 87% efficiency all the way Very nice unit and review.

I have buitl a rig with the TX750w in it and I can tell it isn't that hard to manage the cables, which were similar in amount. You just need to make sure you have a case with good cable management options (I had the CM centurion 590, not really great) and you have a lot of duct tape / tie wraps lying around. Oh and reserve an hour or two

Yeah I certainly had a few eye rubbing moments while testing it. They should be slapping 80PLUS Silver Certification on it tbh. Only a couple of units i've ever seen can manage that.

Haha was about to say, could of slotted in a cheeky line:

"Upon opening the box I was greeted by the usual intoxicating Corsair PSU smell, and decided to take a break from reviewing for a few minutes to relax."
