CORSAIR Gaming Series GS800 800W ATX 12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Love the LED glow, works great with my white 600t and the look of the supply matches my case, mobo and ram. Has all the connections I need to run everything.

This PSU has been supplying power just fine.

Cons: I am really getting annoyed by the fan. I just recently replaced a few fans in my case to quiet it down, then this noise really started to stand out. This PSU has a temperature sensor to determine when the fan should be on. The noise comes from PSU fan not being able to determine if it wants to stay on or off. Have you ever heard a 3D printer? The noise is similar to that. This concerns me on the quality of this product. I am generally a fan of Corsair but am concerned that the fan controller could just go out.

A friend of mine purchased the same exact model and experienced the same issues. He exchanged it for the same model only to have this issue happen again. He just decided to get a different model (AX series)

Other Thoughts: I should have gone with the HX or AX series which are modular. Kinda surprised that the "gaming" series aren't higher rated or modular. I went for the aesthetics when I should have been more focused on quality.

I would RMA the PSU but I am concerned replacement will do the same after a friend had 2 different ones with the same issue. Otherwise can't go too long without my desktop because I use it for college
