    Hopefully it'll come down in price and with mail in rebates it could look more attractive pricewise. But good to see there is no compromise regarding quality on the HX series.

    once it goes fully retail (newegg still lists the older model) most likely its price will drop.

    $120 is insanely low... this thing would do fine anywhere in the $150-175 mark.

    7 year warranty though! I've had a TX 650 v1 go bad and Corsair had me a new replacement in less than a week. I've had nothing but good experiences with Corsair and that says a lot (been buying their stuff since DDR 400 days, when DDR 333 was barely JEDEC certified).

    I'd like to point out that while the original HX850/750 were marketed as 80+ Silver, they actually did pass as 80+ Gold.

    You can see the list of Corsair power supplies here, and you'll see the HX850 and HX750 both rated for 80+ Gold. So the new units aren't really as big of a deal as it seems, just a new platform.

    The V2's are listed on there as well, but they are listed as 75-001218 and 75-001219.

    This should give an idea of the actual efficiency difference between the HX850 and HX850 V2.

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4
    0 Model 20% Load 50% Load 100% Load
    1 HX850 89.14% 90.38% 87.06%
    2 HX850v2 88.49% 90.53% 87.73%


    Not really anything major changed there.

    The price stayed the same actually, Corsair lists the original HX850 for $199 too. Since the street price of the HX850 is about $150 right now, once the HX850v2 hits the market it should be right around the same $150. I don't think it would be easy to find an 850w 80+ Gold unit with a 7 year warranty for less.

    Err.. It's not the same PSU, different platform and the HX850 v1 fan isn't passive at lower loads.
