Cabling Arrangement

VIEW GALLERY - 25 IMAGES

Corsair provides you with the same set of cables that we saw with the AX860i and it is one of the best selections of cables and connectors that we have ever seen. This is made even better since the entire power supply is modular.

The dual ATX 4+4 cables are always nice to see on anything above 700W. Corsair includes two types of PCI-E cables so that you're not left with extra connectors hanging randomly in your case. The first pair of PCI-E cables feature dual PCI-E connectors on the, one chained off the other. The second pair of PCI-E cables features just a single PCI-E connector in case you have a lower end card that requires a single PCI-E connector or something like the recently reviewed PowerColor DEVIL13 Radeon HD 7990 that requires 3-PCI-E connectors.

The Corsair AX760 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 single Nippon Chemi-Con capacitor sits on the primary side of the AX760 power supply.

Corsair utilizes the 120mm San Ace fan manufactured by Sanyo Denki to actively cool the AX760.
