OC3D Review: Corsair HX620 620w Modular PSU

"Corsair have made a brave branch out from the memory market into their own line of PSU's. Today I'll be putting their HX620 through its paces to see if it lives up to Corsairs reputation for high performance components."

Had a quick flick though. Another good job Mr XMS.

Seems very pricy to me though.

"For a ~600w unit the sum of £96 (over at Scan.co.uk) may seem a little higher than most other competing products, however as the saying goes - "You get what you pay for", and this is certainly true for the HX620."

I compare it to the Enermax Liberty as I've had the 620 and currently have the Corsair 620, to me the Corsair is a lot better the cable system is much more usable and the noise is in another league I honestly cannot hear it on idle load unless I put my ear 8" away from it, even under load it remains the quietest PSU I've "never heard".

Another thing to add is the 5 year warranty has to be worth something extra, I rate it very highly and I have had or built PC's for other people dozens of different PSU's.

PS Very nice review as usual XMS.

Great review Jim. And I must say that is a beastly ass PSU. I'm actually going to look at putting one of these babies in my rig... I absolutely love the cables that they've used, those are just stellar. Off to find one in the USA

Hi Frag, I'm sure you will be pleased with it the cables are a nice touch if you like them, they are slightly stiff but they are easy to bend and move around will make your case look great.

Another great feature is it's quiet operation, in my humble opinion only the Etasis 750 850 Sliverstone series are better, the downfall of those for me are the noise and not being modular.

I hope when you get yours your as pleased as I am with mine.
