Corsair GS800 PSU Review

Testing:

Testing was done with the following test setup:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 3,3GHz
Motherboard: Asus P8P64 PRO Rev 3.1
RAM: Patriot 4GB DDR3
HDD: Patriot TorqX 2 128GB SSD, Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD
Videocard:  ATI Radeon 6850

Testing was done by using the OCCT software to run the computer at high load while also looping SuperPi and running Starwars The Old Republic.

I know that our loads tests won’t take advantage of more than ~400W but this will give you an idea of this units performance. Testing was done with Thermaltake’s Dr Power 2 measuring tool and a multimeter with every half second updates on the rails.

3,3V Rail:

This rail performed excellent as with most powersupplies on the market, at idle it stayed at 3,3V and during load it stayed also at the same voltage.

5V Rail:

When it comes to the 5V rail we also saw very nice results, the unit performed as expected with quite stable results at 5,02V and at full 5,01-5,03.

12V Rail:

The 12V rail is the most important rail on the unit and this is where we usually see some flickering on the rail. This rail had some minor issues but nothing major, well within specified limits. We had at idle the rail stable at 12,05V and after loading it as much as we are capable of we saw some minor flickering at 12,05-12,07V.

Overall testing was good, we got the results that we expected and the PSU unit performs well.
