Corsair's TX series was extremely popular, winning multiple awards. Building on the successes of the TX series, Corsair have launched a new V2 range with a bigger - 140mm fan and better components such as Japanese capacitors rated at 105C. Rated at 80 Plus Bronze, the TX V2 has increased efficiency over its predecessor and comes with an impressive 5 year warranty - a firm stamp of confidence. The variant we will be taking a look at today is the 850W delivering a burly 70A for the +12v rail, delivering the performance capabilities for those seeking to SLI or Crossfire.

So lets begin our review of the Corsair TX850 V2 PSU.
