Corsair AX860i Digital ATX Platinum Power Supply Review
Specifications and Packaging
Specifications for the Corsair AX860i Digital ATX PSU
The Corsair AX860i Digital power supply supports the latest ATX12V v2.31 and EPS12V 2.92 standards and is backward compatible with ATX12V 2.2 and ATX12V 2.01. The AX860i is rated for a combined, continuous output power of up to 860 watts at 50°C operating temperature. That’s important as some less reputable manufactures limit their power supply’s advertised capacity by specifying a lower operating temperature (25°C) in the fine print.
The AX860i Digital PSU incorporates a single +12V output (user-configurable virtual “single” or “multi-rail” software modes) that can deliver up to 71.6A, which is the full capacity of the unit. The PSU includes universal AC line input (automatically adjusts the AC line voltage) and active PFC, which makes the unit more environmentally friendly to the local power grid.
