  • Low noise level, LED can be turned off, Small, Price
  • Rails could be more stable
  • The GS800 has actually performered way better than I expected it to do, I have here in Sweden seen it go for as low as 70$ on sale which means this is a “bang for the buck” unit. Newegg has this unit for 99$ after a mail in rebate but this is not on s...

  • Another Corsair product that left me quite satisfied, not only by its performance but also by its nice design. The updated GS series is still produced by the same OEM, Channel Well Technology, which also made the older models but it is based on a much ...

  • Corsair’s new Gaming Series power supply is a solid contender. For the price, you get a whole lot of power supply. While efficiency isn’t up there with some more expensive units, the GS800W only claimed to be 80Plus. Still, the efficiency numbers are ...

  • While this is far from a complete test of this PSU, it does show that there should be no issues with Noise/Ripple. I’d urge anyone considering this unit to check out some more in-depth reviews for efficiency and overload tests, but we can confirm that...
