Today we are looking at the latest power supply from Corsair, the Gaming Series GS800 – an 800W unit firmly targeting the mainstream enthusiast audience. This 80Plus Bronze Certified unit is a non modular design with a single +12V rail, supported by a three year warranty.

The Gaming Series from Corsair features a 600W, 700W and 800W model. They are priced £58, £72 and £84 respectively in the United Kingdom and feature user adjustable lighting to enhance the appearance of a system build.

This lighting can be controlled via a dedicated switch on the back of the chassis and there is an detachable ‘color ring accessory pack’ available separately to compliment the design.

  • Fanless mode at low loads for quiet operation, with an ultra-quiet 140mm double ball-bearing fan that delivers excellent airflow when needed.

  • 80 PLUS Bronze certified, delivering up to 85% energy efficiency under real-world load conditions.
  • Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) with PF value of 0.99.
  • Universal AC input from 100~240VAV.
  • Over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, and short circuit protection provide maximum safety for your critical system components.
  • High-quality capacitors provide uncompromised performance and reliability.
  • A three year warranty and lifetime access to Corsair’s legendary technical support and customer service.
  • Safety Approvals:  cTUVus, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TÜV, CCC, C-tick.

    I have been waiting on their new high end units. I built a new system, or am building it, and the PSU is the last thing im going to order. i almost went for the bequiet 850W platinum, but want to see what other options are happening soon.
    Any ideas Zardon if they are releasing a platinum unit soon?
