    Default Corsair HX850 vs Corsair AX850

    Hi. I am hesitating to buy one of these two power supplies. the price of AX is somewhat higher

    The HX850 is multi-rail, and the AX850 single-rail.

    regards





    edited, I got confused with the HX850i, I was referring to the HX850

    If AX is cheaper go for it.

    Specs indeed, full specs, so which case? Requirements, availability and pricing.

    Maybe both are bad choices because there are a lot similar power supplies which are a lot cheaper.

    I was wrong, I meant the HX850 without "i"

    all the power supplies that interest me have gone up in price these months, all except the AX850.

    AX850 215
    HX850 190
    the price difference is little
    I like the AX850 better for being more efficient and quiet, but I have doubts that it is single-rail
    Is single-rail or multi-rail better? Is the AX850 less secure for being single-rail?

    thanks

    How sure are you there is nothing else interesting?

    be quiet! Straight Power 11 (Platinum), Corsair HXi, Fractal Design ION+, XPG Core Reactor, Cooler Master V Platinum, there is so much you can look at.

    And yeah a good multi-rail is better than single-rail 12V.

    why do you think multi-rail is better? Is the single-rail more dangerous?
    I will look at those models but I prefer corsair and seasonic because they offer the longest warranty.

    thanks
