Corsair has really made a name for themselves in the power supply market over the past few years. This is mainly because of their high-end AX and HX series, but at the end of the day not everyone needs a super high-end power supply. Corsair’s CS series is marketed more towards the typical user / builder who is looking for low energy use and easy installation. Today we are taking a look at the CS850M which is an 80PLUS Gold certified power supply. It also features flat modular cables and a 3-year warranty. Does this power supply hold the same high-quality and performance that we’ve seen from other Corsair power supplies? Let’s take a look!
When developing the V-Series power supplies Cooler Master had one thing in mind. They wanted their name to be what you thought of when you were looking to buy a new power supply or upgrade your current one. The V-Series design is based on a brand new platform that makes use of Japanese capacitors, most of them solid capacitors, as well as a high quality 42 mm transformer. This means the power supply will have outstanding efficiency and stability. Today we are taking a look at the V850 which features a single 12V rail, an 80PLUS Gold certification, a silent 135mm fan and an all modular design. Read on as we take a look…
