Inside the Box

Corsair always does a great job packing their power supplies. We've yet to receive one packed like this that was damaged in any way, even if the box had been abused during shipping.

Corsair's RM850 features a semi-gloss black finish on the unit. The top of the power supply features the I/O specification label.

Both sides of the RM850 feature the same logo with it being inverted on the other side.

The front features all of the modular connectors including the one for the Corsair Link adapter.

The back doesn't have anything special as it is just your typical honeycomb mesh with on/off rocker switch and AC input. There is also a sicker back here that warns you the fan will not spin at low load levels.

The 135mm tan fan inside RM850 is covered by the black wire mesh grill on the bottom.

All of the modular cables are fully sleeved.

All cables are fully modular and all of them are of the flat ribbon type too.

If you intend to use the Corsair Link software, you'll have to purchase the Analog Corsair Link adapter separately from the power supply. Corsair sent us one along with the power supply so we could check out how it integrates with Corsair Link. We'll have a separate review of this shortly.
