post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
I know There is alot of buyers for this product.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139011

But im horrified at what the bad reviews say on egg, Im building a really nice computer. Sure 88% for 5/5 is really good. But just scary o.O

I'm not a PSU expert - in fact, far from it - but I have trusted Corsair's PSUs for benching and personal rigs for a while. I have 3 x HX1000 kicking around here, and love them, and even have the HX850 you linked to, though I haven't had enough usage with that particular model to out-right recommend it. The HX1000 I can stand by, though.

Newegg PSU reviews mean nothing. The HX850 is very good.

And FYI, DOA's and faults can happen with any company, be it Diablotek or Seasonic.

GameBoy is spot on, the HX850 is a darn fine PSU, and Corsair's support is second to none. And I've never heard of an HX series killing a machine, without help from the user.

Indeed, don't worry about the reviews on Newegg.

It's an awesome PSU. You'll be good.

If you have it long enough, the savings on electricity would be better with the 80 gold

There was only about 5 reviews out of what over 300 that actually had anything bad to say about this PSU. You have to skip past the DOA ones as these idiots give 1 egg for a doa product when they cant even review it. Even then there were only about 9 bad reviews out of 300, so thats about as good as it gets for any product on New Egg, except for maybe CPU's where they almost always get 4 and 5 eggs.

I'd say go for the AX850 if you can afford it. If you use your rig a lot at higher power use (IE gaming etc) then you'll make the extra cost back inside 18 months on your power bills. The AX is under $20 more than the HX, the quality is brilliant. Well worth it.
