Corsair Professional Series AX760 and AX860 review

Rating: 9.0.

Corsair have been active lately, not only have they recently unleashed a new range of liquid coolers, but they have introduced two completely new power supply families. We have already reviewed the AX760i and AX860i ‘digital’ supplies, a formidable design in collaboration with Flextronics. Today we are analysing the latest AX760 and AX860 units, both Platinum certified modular units at a more affordable price point. Are they worthy of a purchase?

There is no doubt that the AX760i and AX860i are spectacular power supplies, however they are rather expensive. Corsair have released the new non ‘i’ supplies to target a slightly wider audience, charging around £20 less per unit. If you have no interest in the Corsair LINK interface module and accompanying software it may be a good way to keep a little extra cash in the bank.

The AX760 and AX860 are certainly not budget power supplies. Corsair have teamed up with market leader Seasonic to introduce the highest quality products for the enthusiast user. These are fully modular designs which have achieved 80 Plus Platinum Certification. The designs incorporate a hybrid fan controller which offers a ‘zero RPM’ mode at up to around 70% of load (if room ambient is maintained at around 25c). The company have adopted Sanyo Denki fans in both supplies, premium quality units.
