Deepcool Gamer Storm DQ850-M PSU Review

Packaging

At the face of the box the majority of the real estate is taken by a photo of the fan grille. There is also a smaller, angled photo of the PSU with the modular panel on display. Right below the model number description is a large number of badges describing the 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, the five-year warranty (which has been extended to ten-years) and other interesting features.

Onto one of the box’s sides is a list of provided connectors, while on the opposite side is the power specifications table.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rear of the box lacks detailed information about the platform or photos of the unit’s internals. There is a features list here along with two graphs showing the unit’s efficiency and the fan’s speed curve.

Contents

Two foam sheets surround the PSU into the box, providing adequate protection. The unit is also stored in a cloth bag. The bundle looks poor since it doesn’t include any zip ties or velcro straps, or even a user’s manual.

Exterior

The front side (exhaust) doesn’t use the typical honeycomb design perforations so it has a unique appearance. The same applies to the fan grille which looks nice. This PSU doesn’t include a semi-passive mode, there is only a power switch and the AC receptacle of course, at the front.

 

On the sides the stickers keep a very low profile. A much larger sticker is installed along the bottom, showing the power specifications table along with the model number, the 80 PLUS Gold badge and several other certification badges.

The modular panel includes eleven sockets. On this side we also find three stickers with one of them issuing a warning about not using other modular cables, only the ones provided with this product.

The large fan grille nicely covers the small diameter fan and it also allows for increased airflow.
