    Default Corsair HX850 Gold Review @ KitGuru

    http://www.kitguru.net/components/po...supply-review/

    For the most part; I'd say the unit did fairly well. Even compared again it's silver counter part. The 3.3v rail is the weakest link this time; but still not bad.

    If the price can be as competitive as the old unit; it'd be an excellent value.

    Well, Martin didn't say anything good about the fan of the GS600, wich is, surprisingly, the same as in this 850W model...

    By the rules of the jonnyguru.com drinking game, everyone must now take a shot.

    Enermax LEPA G850 use the similar plateform but sell only $149.9 at newegg now, how could 850HXv2 sell $50 more?

    As an FYI on the price, the HX850 has always had a $199 MSRP, the street price has typically been $20-$30 lower.

    That's a problem because it isn't easy to get a gun in Germany.
