Oh my god! That's simply amazing! What an amazing efficiency and stability, it seems that Corsair knows how to improve even more the things that are really good.

Yep. Right at this moment in time I would say that this is the best PSU you can buy. Enermax Revolution85+ comes in a fairly close 2nd, but the HX850W really dominates.

1kW off a 850W unit without it even blinking O.o That is one rock solid unit right there.

Here's an odd question, does it fit in the PSU bay of the dimas bench tables?

Ask because the kettle plug on my CM unit is situated very close to the edge, meaning it can't be used .

Heck of an impressive unit. Price is a little arguable, but tbh it's a quality purchase.

U have to hand it to Corsair when it comes to packaging their psus.
