5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Great. The reviews of this PSU's twin from seasonic are really reassuring.

Fidning third party PSU cables for this are a breeze. Cosair even sells pretty pretty wires.

Cons: Can't see much to put here besides the fact that just like in its Seasonic twin, the connectors aren't really locking. They're sorta hard to know they seated well, when plugging in. Not the biggest deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Well made, no problems thus far.

Cons: Made a loud popping sound when I first turned it on, and there was a burnt plastic type of smell coming from my Case. Everything worked, but I was worried for a while.

Other Thoughts: Works great for me. The ~22% 1-egg reviews are cause for concern.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 1 week of use...

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Cables were very nice. And it felt like it was good quality.

Cons: It worked sort of for a week or so. upon installing, it wouldn't even power up. After flicking the power switch 2-3 times it fired up.
This continued through the week doing it 75% of the time. A simple flick of the power switch would usually get it working. I tried giving it a chance because Corsair is a really good brand, well that bit me in the rear. On to a 1000 watt Evga Supernova...

3 out of 5 eggscoil whine

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Works, and looks solid. Fan noise is minimum, and cable design are well thought out

Cons: Coil whine at low load. Including power off state.

Other Thoughts: I bought an refurbished unit on December 2013 from corsair website, so this may very well be the problem. I didn't use it until a week ago so I am about 2 month out of warranty. the coil whine only appeared after I run mem86 overnight and now it is there to stay. Interestingly the whine goes away when the load is high, like running furmark or peime95, but you can clearly hear it at idle or power off state. For a premium product, this is quite disappointing, I am going back to seasonic 650 gold.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry that you're experiencing coil whine on your AX860. If you would like a replacement, please contact us by submitting a ticket at corsair.force.com or calling us at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to help you.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed on me after Two days

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: all black cables
modular cables

Cons: PSU failed after two days
poor quality control
poor integrated circuitry

Other Thoughts: I purchased this PSU thinking I was making the better decision on going with corsair and their top tiered power sully line.

After two days use, my computer just shut down, prior to that for the two days since putting together this new PC, I was having a few BSOD crashes a day.

I figured those crashes were because of the new build and trying to overclock the i7 4798k processor a little. But on day 2 of my new computer, I had fatal crash.

When my pc crashed on day two, it would not boot up at all. no bios, no fans, no anything other than a faint tick I could hear when I pushed the power button to turn on the computer.

I thought I fried the processor, I thought I shorted or cracked the motherboard somehow since the 24pin from the was kinda hard to plug in. I mean I bought the top of the line PSU Corsair offered being their AX series, obviously something must have been wrong on my part.

Finally after a few hours searching around online using my phone for the possible reasons for the crash I came across a way to test the PSU with a multimeter/paperclip and case fan. Then realized that my new power supply was the culprit .

this sucked.

I was working on editing some photos that day for a family dinner the next day, and wanted to finish the editing to share with family.

So I requested an RMA and that afternoon Newegg accepted the request, so I packed it up and shipped it back to them, Thanks newegg for the good customer service.

Now that I knew that I would be getting a refund for this eventually, and not having time to wait for the turnaround or shipping for another power supply to complete my photos. I went to a local BB and bought the best they had which was a 750w Thermaltake, now I suffer from an inferior product with a lower wattage than I intended to use.

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Modular. Great quality. Platinum. 860W perfect for mid-high range computers requiring higher voltage.

Cons: Cables were shorter than my old PSU. A bit disappointed because all my cases are Full Tower and some cables had a tough time fitting.

4 out of 5 eggsIt working so far

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Easy to install. Not difficult to figure out which cable to use where. Make sure your case is long enough. I only got about 2" of room between the end of the PS and the drive bays.

Cons: This the second one. As stated in "Other Thoughts", the first just up and died. The second initially wouldn't power the video card. That was a bad cable. I would have expected the cables to take a little more punishment on installation due to the tight spaces.

Other Thoughts: It has worked out so far. My old PS kept browning out under a load so I bought the AX860. The first lasted about a half hour into Dragon Age: Inquisition when the screen went dark. I looked over at the machine and the power light was off. Nothing I did could get it back. RMA'd back to Newegg. Received the new one and installed. The first try the machine powered up but the monitor displayed "No Signal". Opened it back up and found one of the wires pulled loose from the PCI Express cnntrs on the card. The loop between it and the one next to it was too high to get the side panel back on so I had to bend it over. Obviously I put a little too much effort into it. The wires are not color coded so I didn't know what pin it fit. It came w/ a second set of cables so I was up and running again. It lasted an hour and half thru DA: Inquisition so far. I am wondering if a bad cable was the problem w/ the first PS. I will try to come back in a month w/ an update.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressively efficient

This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: - small size
- fully modular
- high continuous power output
- insanely efficient
- absolutely silent

Cons: There aren't any actual cons, but I have had a (sort of) negative experience. My old PSU had a continuously running fan to keep it cool. This had the side-effect of assisting in evacuating the hot air from inside the case. The AX860 is so efficient, the fan almost never comes on. This has created the problem of overheating the rest of the components in the case. So, I have had to look into further cooling options to keep everything cooled down.

So....not really a negative, but it is the only downside I could come up with. :)

Other Thoughts: This PSU is great if you need a lot of power for a small case.
