Corsair RM850x White Edition PSU



Despite being in white this PSU offers surprisingly good value.

Did they leave off the fan test button on this one? It's a very nice looking unit.

I wonder if the gold rating will scare a few off. That would be a good article to do sometime, bronze, gold, platinum differences in real world usage.

The fan test feature comes as part of the PSU's Corsair Link components.

I doubt the Gold Rating will put anyone off. The differences in power draw from the wall are minimal going beyond Gold, particularly in the EU where we use 230V.

Strange thing is that in the EU the efficiency that we get with a gold rating is the same as the efficiency requirements of a Platinum rated PSU in the states.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_Plus

One thing that I do think is strange is how almost no 80+ Silver rated PSUs are available today.

They could call it the Corsair Blanc series. I dare say Tom would snap them up in a heart beat, apart from the AIO as he's already one step ahead of the game in that department.

Actually I'm surprised no ones done a mainstream white AIO yet I'm sure they'd be popular
