Cabling Arrangement

Corsair gives you a modest amount of connectors for a mainstream power supply. Most importantly are the four PCI-E connectors that will allow you to fully power two GPU's. The GS800 also has eight SATA and eight Molex connectors which allows you to fill a case with just about everything and still be able to power it.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets here. There is a single 12V rail that feeds everything.

 

A Look Inside

Opening up the GS800 shows that Corsair wasn't too worried about heat dissipation with the puny heatsinks. This does however allow excellent airflow through the power supply.

On the primary side of things we can see the single large Samxon capacitor. Samxon's parent company is Man Yue Electronics Company Limited out of Hong Kong.

The capacitors on the secondary are a mix of Japanese Nippon and Taiwanese Teapo caps.
