Corsair AX860i PSU review

As you can see the PSU is 100% modular. Lot's and lots of connections. Even the ATX power header can be detached. See the button on the top left ? That's a Self-test switch to determine PSU functionality even before installation. Green is good - red not so much.
And yeah as you can see, a fairly normal length product really with its 16 cm - it's complete dimensions are 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) X 6.3"(L); 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 160mm(L).
BTW you will notice there's a AX860 and AX860i SKU. The 'i' versions are Link compatible. We'll show you more about Link in the next pages.
At the top you'll stumble into a fan -- silent enough, 140 mm. A silent quality fan (double ball bearaing). When load is under 30% the fan will remain off as explained quite often by now.
And check that out, that's 71.6A on the single 12V rails alone. Very nice ! In theory this PSU could hold three GeForce GTX 680 cards or Radeon HD 7970 cards quite easily. Albeit for 800 watt range we say, two way multi-GPU maximum as you need reserves for overclocking on the CPU and GPUs as well.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
