What?
No... you're really really really wrong.

X-850 & AX-850 are the same internally; down to the components used slide 1 piece of the APFC circuit which isn't going to effect performance since both parts are almost identical.

AX 850 is based on the Seasonic X Series platform.
HX 850 is based on a modified design of the Channel Well Tech DSG platform.

what in the...

channel well tech?

is that what CWT stands for?

Thanks, but seeing the X-850 is full modular I think I'll go with Seasonic. I really want the option to blow the dust off the fan on my PSU.
Shhhhh!

Yeah I said that the X850 and AX850 were the same internally, why was I wrong?

Doesn't make it inferior.

Spec's wise, it's actually a better fan in regards to static pressure and airflow.

When I clicked the Quote+ button it said HX850 not X. I see you edited that.

Doesn't mean they're the same fan.

It's not my fault you read wrong, he asked about the AX850 vs X850.

Which like I said, the only difference comes down to the APFC Circuit. The difference is only .4A for Seasonic's favor at 100*C (or .6A for Corsair at 25*C)

Seasonic will have a X-1000 & X-1200 units coming out.
ETA is unknown though.

The question is whether Seasonic's 1200W is going to be that much better then Antec HCP-1200 or TPQ-1200 OC.
