Corsair AX860i 860W 80 PLUS Platinum Digital Power Supply Review

Cabling Arrangement




Corsair provides a near perfect set of cables and connectors with the AX860i, all of which are fully modular and sleeved or flat.


The dual ATX 4+4 cables are nice to see on top of the PCI-E cables that offer both dual and single connectors in a single cable. There are six PCI-E connectors, 12 SATA connectors, and eight Molex connectors. That's quite a bit for 860W and should take care of just about anyone's needs. Even better are the short/long cables for the SATA connectors.




The Corsair AX860i features a single 12V rail so there isn't much to talk about here.



A Look Inside




This top down shot gives us a good glimpse at the inside of the power supply. There isn't much in the way of passive cooling, but what is here is more than sufficient. One of the benefits of increased efficiency is reduced heat output.




A Panasonic capacitor sits on the primary side of the AX860i power supply.




Rubycon capacitors are soldered in on the secondary side.




Corsair utilizes the Yate Loon D12BH-12 120mm fan to actively cool the AX860i.
