[JG] XFX Core Edition 850w Review

post #1 of 6

Today we have the pleasure of checking out one of XFX's newest power supplies: The Pro 850W. The Pro 850W is one of three new "Core Edition" power supplies from XFX. They lack the frills and modularity of XFX's other PSU efforts, but come in at an astonishingly low price.

Why? Because he pointed out that the unit was not modular and didn't have the high efficiency of the other Black Edition PSU's from XFX?

You seem to have something stuck inside, it makes you hasty and angry.
