Corsair AXi Digital ATX PSU: complete digital control
The revolutionary AXi Series PSUs are the first desktop PC power supplies to use digital (DSP) control and Corsair Link (learn how to use Corsair Link with AXi Series PSUs) to bring you an unprecedented level of monitoring and performance customization. The DSP in the AX860i makes on-the-fly adjustments for incredibly tight voltage regulation, 80 PLUS® Platinum Efficiency, and clean, stable power.
Real-time monitoring and control with Corsair Link
Put the AX860i under your control by connecting it directly to a USB header on your motherboard with the included cable, or to a Corsair Link Commander (available separately). Then, download the free Corsair Link Dashboard software for unrivaled power supply monitoring and control options.
Monitor power input and output, efficiency, fan speed, and internal temperature, directly from the Windows based application. Or, take it to the next level and set up and modify fan speed profiles, or even select from virtual “single rail” or “multi-rail” software modes, with select able OCP points.
Stable and Reliable Power Delivery
DSP-controlled, real-time voltage regulation helps ensure that your valuable components receive clean, stable power.
Less Heat and Lower Operating Cost
AX860i's extreme efficiency earns it coveted 80 PLUS® Platinum certification. Less wasted power means minimal excess heat. This can reduce the strain on your other components, and it can save you money over the long run in the form of lower power bills.
Quiet Operation at low loads
Super-high efficiency has another benefit: silence. The thermally-controlled fan doesn't even spin at low loads. It's ideal if you're building a quiet PC or you just want to reduce the amount of ambient noise in your life.
Easy installation and cable routing, with better airflow
The fully modular cable set allows you to use only the cables you need, and the flat design makes cable routing much easier in tight spaces. You get a clean-looking system build with cables out of the airflow path for efficient space usage that's energy efficient as well.
The fully modular layout allows you to use only the cables you need, and the Self Test button makes it easy to check the status of your PSU.
An ultra-quiet, 120mm double ball-bearing fan delivers excellent airflow with exceptionally low noise levels by varying fan speed in response to temperature.
The AX860i is so efficient that the fan doesn't spin up until you're pushing your system hard. And, fan speed thresholds can be adjusted with Corsair Link.
Are you used to checking to see if the fan spins to verify if your power supply is working? No worries. AX860i has a self-test switch to verify proper functionality before you install.
Superior Components and Better Engineering for Excellent Performance and Protection
High-quality capacitors provide uncompromised performance and reliability.
Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) with PF value of 0.99
Over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, and short circuit protection provide maximum safety for your critical system components
Engineered to meet maximum power output at a server-grade 50°C temperature rating.
The AX860i provides a dedicated single +12V rail, with configurable virtual "single-rail" and "multi-rail" software modes.

Installed ps, connected it and turned on. Running a X79 setup with a 3820 for now along with 2 XFX 7950's, 1 Samsung ssd, 3tb Seagate, 16gb ram along with 7 fans, Corsair H80i, 2 blu-ray burners. Powers it with no issues at all
This is an excellent PSU. I have a backup battery on my computer and this more efficient unit really extends the length of that batter quite significantly if you're just on normal PC usage. The modular design really helps cut down on cable clutter.
Overall great product I would buy again due to corsairs quality and the Corsair link feature is a great add to any built. Once you take the time to really manage everything about it its great
Very nice power supply, the modular all black sleeved cables make for a very clean install. The corsair link software is nice but you can tell it is a first gen release, should be good in the future but for now i think there are better programs out there.
So far a very awesome power supply. Running i7-3770k and 2 GTX 670's with no problem at all. Hopefully planning to water cool in the future. Moderate O.C. so far. Corsair link is kinda cool if you into monitoring all of your gear. There is a self test button. Tried it and it works. Great packaging. Unit came in a velvet bag and the cables came in a pouch. 7 year warranty and 80+ platinum PSU. Awesome!
