Corsair Certified AXi Series AX860i 860W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 Plus Platinum Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Don't Be Scared of "Refurbished" Items 12/27/2016

This review is from: Corsair Certified AXi Series AX860i 860W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 Plus Platinum Power Supply

Pros: Cheap, being refurbished and all
Plenty of connectors
Full modular
Quiet. Really, it is
Corsair Link Software
It's Corsair Brand
80 Plus Platinum

Cons: Can not think of anything right now!

Other Thoughts: Don't be wary just because it's a "refurbished" unit. Mines stable after a month of having it and shows no sign of slowing down. No more than ~385 watts are used during gaming while staying ~92% efficient via Corsair Link software. Almost same results whilst mining. It's only a i7-2600K, R9 270X at 5% O/C, 12GB DDR3, 1TB, 2TB & 500GB Seagate HD, Antec Twelve Hundred case.

I honestly was worried about getting a refurbished unit so I got the 1 year extended warranty just in case as I'll get a bigger unit for my future build. It was a good choice in the end IMHO for $89 on Cyber Monday!

Pros: -Better than 2GB
-O/C's nicely, my mobo just don't like me :-(

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: AMD FX 6100
GSkill Ares 8GB 1600
MSI 760GM-P23

Seagate 1TB, Hitatchi 80GB

VisionTek Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 900651 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Not a red cooler, it is black with 2 fans
-Plays all my games, with my setup, at 60 FPS+ on Ultra
-The kh/s on LTC mining isnt too bad at ~420 o/c'ed slightly
-Stays nice and cool
-Lifetime warranty
-Runs great on my Silverstone 500W PSU

Cons: Really only complaint I have with this card is when it starts working, I get this weird noise coming from the card and hope it don't affect anything down the line. It runs great in games and no slow downs in mining. Lifetime warranty will take care of me...hopefully.

Other Thoughts: AMD FX-6100
8GB GSkill Ares 1600
MSI 760GM-P23
