For the most part the guts of the new Corsair TX850 V2 is identical to the XFX PRO 850W PSU, with a slightly larger fan. Externally Corsair provides more PCIe connectors, a very different look and unfortunately a price tag slightly higher than the XFX product. On the flip side Corsair's 750W version is almost identical to the 850 W model and it is cheaper than the equivalent XFX product. If you are shopping for a PSU, read the Hardware Secrets review since it is essentially four PSU reviews in one.
"Let's take a look at the revamped Corsair TX850 power supply, dubbed TX850 V2, now featuring a DC-DC design and 80 Plus Bronze certification. It is important to understand that while the old TX850 was manufactured by CWT, being a relabeled 850VH unit from this manufacturer, the new Corsair TX850 V2 is manufactured by Seasonic, being internally identical to the XFX PRO 850 W unit."
