Inside the Box

The TX850V2 is packed well, with at least a 1/2 inch of foam protecting the power supply on all sides. As you can see, all of the cables are natively wired. Be prepared to be attacked by an octopus as soon as you remove the cable tie keeping them bundled.

On both sides are the TX series logos.

Corsair has located the I/O specification label on the top of the TX850V2. The single screw that you see is for a standoff that helps support the PCB inside.

A glance at the back shows us the AC input, on/off rocker switch, and honeycomb grill for ventilation.

Since the TX850V2 features natively wired cabled, there isn't much going on here at the front of the unit.

Moving to the bottom, we can see the large 140mm fan with wire grill that cools the TX850V2.
