Corsair is releasing today the new version of its HX 850 power supply, which has the 80 Plus Gold certification. Let’s see what is new.
Here is a snippet:
“Even though the original Corsair HX850 power supply received the 80 Plus Gold certification, Corsair decided to downgrade it to the 80 Plus Silver certification, as the manufacturer felt the 80 Plus Gold levels couldn’t be sustained at high temperatures. (Wouldn’t it be great if all manufacturers had this kind of concern?) Now Corsair is releasing a revamped version of its HX850, the HX850 Gold. Let’s see if this new version is a good product.”
