Corsair AX860i 860W Power Supply Review

Corsair has become known for their power supplies over the past couple of years. Almost everyone you talk to these days will list a Corsair power supply in recommending a power supply for a build. Corsair’s top line of power supply line is the AX series and today we are taking a look at the AX860i model. This 860W power supply features digital (DSP) control for the best possible voltage regulation, an 80PLUS Platinum certification, full modular design and monitoring and customization through Corsair’s Link software. I have heard nothing but great things about this power supply so let’s take a look…

The AX860i comes in a nice and very informative retail box. On the front it lets you know it is the AX860i and that it is 80PLUS Platinum. On the back of the box there is quite a lot of information not only on the power supply, but on Corsair Link as well.

On one of the sides there is a listing of all of the connectors, that way you will know if you have enough for your build. On the opposite side it lists compatibility in quite a few different languages.

Opening the box up inside you will find the AX860i Power Supply, power cable, bag of modular cables, Corsair Link connector, mounting screws, cable ties, and Corsair case sticker. Most of the modular cables use a flat cable design, but the larger connector cables and PCIe cables use a normal sleeved design.
