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: - Silent
- High quality
- Fully modular

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Plenty of power to handle my GTX 780 2-way SLI and an overclocked FX-8320. Corsair has never failed to impress me with their products.

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: Good power supply I like how you can change the fan hybrid to normal. Another one of favorite features is how the fan only goes when it needs to.

Cons: Had sort of a tough time installing it. The cables didn't like to stay in the power supply.

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: Turned on the PSU and the fan didn't spin. Thought there was a problem but it was in Hybrid mode. After putting a load on it I noticed the fan was running. Quite impressive. 4 eggs for the time being simply for lack of owning it longer.

Cons: Probably not a con but more of a technical inexperience, a fully modular PSU with little to no instructions had me somewhat confused with some of the cables. Did get it figured out and all sorted.

Other Thoughts: Pretty impressive that with no power running to the PSU thus generating no heat the fan isn't needed, therefore it's not running. The Hybrid mode sould help with with power consumption and all should be good.

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: I bought two of these. One for my own gaming build and one for one I was building for my brother. Both installed fairly easy. The plugs are a little stiff and hard to plug in, but that is not a complaint at all, better stiff plugs than loose ones.

Despite being amazing in functionality and ease of use, they look pretty amazing as well.

My first ever PSU's that I've actually picked out myself for my first two ever custom builds, and I'm highly satisfied. If you've got the money, and are considering getting this, I highly recommend it.

Cons: Price, but you get what you pay for and this is a very well constructed power supply, it feels solid in every way.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good, but use caution

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 looking, great packaging, is currently running nice and stable and hasn't given me any issues. I only hear a bit of coil whine when running 3D benchmark programs, but with regular games I do not hear any at all (some state a lot of whine or while PC is turned off or going in and out of games to desktop but I got lucky I guess). Currently I have the PSU fan on hybrid which turns the fan off at low consumption, but with my case fans and 780ACX going I honestly don't even recall that I've heard the PSU fan period. So far I am satisfied with this unit but am a bit worried for it's longevity, I guess only time will tell.

Cons: Is advertised as coming with 6 PCI cables yet it only comes with 4, many people have stated the same which is ridiculous if you're spending this much on an "enthusiast" PSU. Also the cable connections on the PSU side are too tight, you're supposed to be able to insert each modular cable with slight effort and hear a distinct click of the clip catching, but on these I had to man handle them in and out and was worried I may break it somehow. Also the main 24 pin power and PCI cables are nicely sleeved however the sata/molex cables leave some to be desired (HD/SSD Sata connections on my drive sleds were a pain to connect as they are so close together, the SATA cables don't bend well). User manual could be a little easier to understand as well.

Other Thoughts: Seems like it's pretty hit and miss with this unit, either you get an amazing one or one plagued with problems/DOA so it's a gamble. I was afraid of it nuking my system on first startup from reading other reviews so I only plugged in the essentials with power to make sure it worked first. It started up the first time like a champ and I felt more reassured with having nice clean power going to it from my APC UPS. Had I read more reviews in depth before purchasing I most likely would have gone with a PSU with a higher user rating, I've always used Antec but with a Corsair case and cooler I decided to give their PSU a try.

4 out of 5 eggsOkay, But Be Cautious!!

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: Platinum Efficiency

Fully Modular

Hybrid Fan

Active PFC

Cons: When I first assembled my system with this new power supply on my work bench, It did not work. I am an experienced DIY guy and had everything plugged in correctly. All motherboard plugs were flush, etc. Quite frusterating, I let it sit for a week, too frustrated to touch it. After that I removed all the cables, intending to ship the PSU back as DOA. But before I did, I decided to test it one more time (170 dollars might as well be thorough), I replaced the motherboard/cpu power cable, as well as the sata power cable and six pin GFX cable, and it WORKED.

No rhyme or reason to it.
If you suspect your unit is DOA, be thorough. I don't know if I missed a cable, or if the PSU just wasn't ready to work yet.
