DeepCool PQ850M (850W) Power Supply Review
Mike Sanders / 2 months ago
While DeepCool has perhaps never managed to fully break out into the mainstream (in the West at least), they still remain a highly respected manufacturer. Largely for bringing many excellent, and most notably, affordable products to the market. In recent years, however, it would appear that the company has attempted to distance itself from the more budget-focused (*cough* cheap *cough*) tier of product into more of mid-to-upper strata. A compromise, if you will, of better performance with only a slight increase on the price tag. And with the release of the PQ850M power supply, that’s exactly what we’re looking at here.
DeepCool PQ850M Power Supply
The DeepCool PQ850M packs a (perhaps) surprisingly impressive array of features. Coming as a fully-modular, 80-Plus Gold efficiency PSU, this is already ticking off two of the biggest boxes the savvy PSU consumer should be looking for. In terms of what this offers, however, this really is just scratching the surface. – When combining the aforementioned with 850 watts of power output, this is definitely a notable step up from what we’d usually expect to see from DeepCool. As such, it’ll be more than a little interesting to see if this step up on paper is translated through into some impressive levels of performance.
Albeit, if 850 watts isn’t right for you, then there’s some excellent news as this new range of power supplies are available now in outputs ranging from 650 all the way up to 1,000! – For this review, however, we will specifically be looking at the PQ850M (850 watt) model!
