XPG Core Reactor II VE 850W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply Review

XPG already holds the crown for the most amazing power supply we’ve ever tested, with the XPG Fusion 1600W Titanium pushing the limits of modern PSU technology. However, few people want or can even afford that £550 behemoth. However, if that’s the quality we see on their flagship, I wanted to see what XPG has to offer on their more modest units, starting with the XPG Core Reason II VE, and I have the 850W variant to hand and ready to go on our PSU testing equipment.

The CORE REACTOR II series power supply units feature the Intel ATX 3.1 design, and PCIe 5.0 support, as well as the latest 12VHPWR connector to support new and upcoming GPU hardware and other accessories. The CORE REACTOR II can deliver 80 PLUS GOLD efficiency and is available in 1200W, 1000W,  850W, 750W, and 650W models to suit your needs.


  • 80 Plus Gold Certified
  • Compact with Modular Design
  • Intelligent, Low-Noise Fan-Curve
  • OVP / OPP / SCP / OCP / UVP / OTP / NLO / SIP
  • 850W Output

XPG CORE REACTOR II VE empowers your system with efficient power delivery. It’s compatible with Intel’s latest ATX 3.1 design guidelines and has a dedicated 12V-2×6 connector for the latest graphics cards. This unit boasts a DC-DC circuit design for enhanced performance, stability, and consistency, with exceptional ripple control and hold-up time surpassing Intel’s specifications. It has 8 industrial protections fortifying its durability, safeguarding both the unit and your system.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
