Corsair AX850 Review

Spectre 08-26-2010 10:08 PM

The uhhhhh font is tiny...

jonnyGURU 08-26-2010 10:09 PM

WTF?!?!!? I didn't define font size this time!!!! Grr!!

Spectre 08-26-2010 10:11 PM

Sorry man, maybe fire ferret just hates the review :p

First page is freaky small font.:D

Have pity on the visually challenged. :)

Ok... I just removed all of the font tags. Do you non-IE users have a decent font size now?

Spectre 08-26-2010 10:22 PM

Normal now here

My guess is the editor sets a basefont tag that IE doesn't support, so when I set a relative font size, it works in IE, but in Firefox it sets the font size I define relative to the base font. Anyhoo... looks like I need to not set any font properties and just leave everything at default.

That standby rail is getting jiggy with it in those scope shots. Got a case of the boogy woogy. I respect the standby rail's artistic ambitions, but politely remind it that it needs to calm the heck down.

I found voltage regulation to be mediocre for this price bracket. We see units like the HX850, M12D 850W, ST85F-P, SG850, etc. all pulling 1% or close to it on the +12V, and the AX850 only manages 2%? It's not bad, but for this price I'd expect top notch performance in all areas, including voltage regulation.

True. And normally I'd take another .5 off the score for this, but since this unit is utilizing so many "fresh" ideas in one box, I gave it its point back.

Essentially, take what Andyson had in it's MT8 three years ago... LLC resonant topology, DC to DC on non-primary rails, completely separate +5VSB circuit... do it right, and combine it with using MOSFET's for +12V regulation, put your non-primary DC to DC converters directly on the modular interface and using a +12V relay to switch on/off your inrush current protection and you have what could be the next generation of computer power supply topology.
