Corsair GS800 Overview  


Corsair have just released an revamped GS800 watt power supply, but as times are changing, consumers expectations increasing so Corsair are trying to stay one step ahead of the game by raising the aesthetics bar. With these new design touches and some other features making their way down the range like the fan not even spinning up until the unit is under 20% load we break out the camera and see whats what


  • • A dedicated single +12V rail offers maximum compatibility with the latest components
  • • Fanless mode at low loads for quiet operation, with an ultra-quiet 140mm double ball-bearing fan that delivers excellent airflow when needed
  • • Color adjustable LED fan can switch between red, blue, white, and off settings by pressing the button on the back (600W model – blue or off mode only)
  • • 80 PLUS Bronze certified, delivering up to 85% energy efficiency under real-world load conditions
  • • Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) with PF value of 0.99
  • • Universal AC input from 100~240VAV
  • • Over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, and short circuit protection provide maximum safety for your critical system components
  • • High-quality capacitors provide uncompromised performance and reliability
  • • A three year warranty and lifetime access to Corsair's legendary technical support and customer service
  • • Safety Approvals:  cTUVus, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TÜV, CCC, C-tick



All in all we really like the look of the new GS line, there are a lot of small features we hope may get implemented when other lines get updated too. What do you think about the new look? You can discuss your thoughts in the OC3D Forums.
