Corsair HX Series 850W Platinum Power Supply Review
Specifications and Packaging
The Corsair HX850 Platinum power supply is rated for a combined, continuous output power of up to 850 watts at 50°C operating temperature. The PSU incorporates a powerful +12V rail that can deliver up to 100% of the rated output (70.8A). As noted earlier, the PSU has a small switch on the front panel that allows selecting either Single or Multiple +12V rail output mode. The PSU includes universal AC line input (automatically adjusts the AC line voltage 100-240 VAC) and active PFC, which makes the unit more environmentally friendly to the local power grid.
