Corsair TX850M 80 Plus Gold Modular Power Supply Review

Corsair TX850M

As one of the most popular technology brands in the world, Corsair has a big reputation to live up to. Their PSUs are easily some of the best-selling in the world, loved by system builders and enthusiasts. With that in mind, we’ve got pretty high expectations of their new Corsair TX850M. Furthermore, previous reviews of Corsair PSUs have proven them to be some of the best on the market, and we wouldn’t expect the TXM to be any different.

Gold-certified efficiency and semi-modular cabling for low energy use and easy installation

“TX Series semi-modular power supplies are ideal for basic desktop systems where low energy use, low noise, and simple installation are essential. All of the capacitors are 105°C rated, Japanese brand, to ensure solid power delivery and long-term reliability. 80 PLUS Gold efficiency reduces operating cost and excess heat. Flat, sleeved black modular cables with clearly-marked connectors make installation fast and straightforward, with good-looking results.”

80 PLUS Gold-certified Efficiency

“The super-efficient operation of the TX Series semi-modular results in lower energy use and lower operating costs. Since it generates less heat, the fan doesn’t need to work as hard, and you’ll enjoy near silent operation.”

Modular cabling with clearly marked connectors

“The flat, sleeved black cables are semi-modular, so you’ll only use the cables you need and you’ll get great-looking results. The clearly marked connectors make installation fast and straightforward.”

Corsair Engineering and Quality Control

“Every CORSAIR power supply is designed by our California engineering team and built to our exact specifications. The same care that goes into the design and testing of our renowned high-power enthusiast power supplies also goes into the TX-M Series semi-modular, because you need confidence and reliability regardless of your build budget.”

Features and Specifications

With a semi-modular design, cable routing should be a breeze with the TXM series power supplies. Add to that 80 Plus Gold efficiency, sleeved cables, a high-quality 140mm fan, and a powerful 12V rail, and you’ve got all the boxes ticked for any high-end system build.

Packaging & Accessories

The box comes in the usual Corsair colours and shows off a clear image of the product on the front. On the top edge of the box, there is a detailed picture of all the included cables.

The fun (and boring) technical details are dotted on the back, letting you know how the fan and efficiency levels perform at various load settings. Of course, we’ll be testing those ourselves today too.

In the box, you’ll find a good range of Molex and SATA cables for all your peripheral devices. There’s also a pair of dual 6+2-pin PCIe cables. The motherboard 8-pin and the 24-pin are hardwired to the PSU, as every system will need those anyway.
