XFX to Enter Power Supply Market with 850 W Black Edition

Manufacturers branching out in to different segments seems to be the in thing to do at the moment and XFX is no exception as leaked slides on the forums of Legit Reviews, reveal that XFX are getting ready to announce their first power supply line at Computex Taipei 2009 next month. The first of which has been dubbed the 850 W Black Edition (XPS-850W-BES), which follows suit of many of their Black Edition graphics cards. It is a modular PSU featuring 88% effeciency and sports a 70A single 12v rail capped at 840 W. It would seem XFX are taking this seriously as the combined output across all of the wattage caps is in excess of 1,000 W. According to the slides the PSU features 105°C Japanese brand capacitors, +/-3% voltage regulation, solid polymer caps, and a 135mm ball bearing fan. Using a combination of fixed and removable cables the XFX 850 W Black Edition has 4 PCI-E 6+2 Pin connectors, 11 SATA connectors and 8 Molex connectors.

Yeah, looks like a modular ver of corsair's.

Anyone else have the corsair 850w? On the inside mine is covered almost halfway by a piece of plastic right under the fan. I haven no idea why it's there.

I like the design. And modularity. Now if I were to make a green themed rig, I'd get that PSU.

A cooler looking version of the Corsair and PC Power and Cooling 850 Watt Power Supply with modular connectivity. I like it!

I can't make out the last couple digits in the UL number so I can't tell who manufactures it :( better pictures here.
It looks like E104405 to me. Seasonic?

looks more like E134405 or 06. I searched the ULOD for XFX or Pine Group and there was no listing.
I thought it was E134406 at first, but I can find no UL number with "E1344XX".

I have never seen Channelwell make a housing like that and almost if not all their power supply fans are bottom side and i'm not even sure if Seasonic is manufacturing for anybody anymore. one thing I really like is the grills on the fan and rear exhaust.

I am curious who is making it?

If someone buys one, post the UL number please.

...we find its UL certification mark, the above point No. E104405-generation plant is the Rhine. This means that XFX is M12D 850 power supply is not "TPN" 850 a. XFX quite a high starting point.

And when you search "E104405" in the UL database it comes up with Seasonic as the manufacturer, so it sounds like XFX are ready to contend with Corsair and these should be some very nice PSUs

im telling you it's a 3 not a 0 looks nothing like a 0 and at least ten people on other forums with the same news post say the exact same number E134406 so what the UL number doesn't exist it's being showcased at computex next month and probably won't be released for months after that. on the ULOD Corsair has a 1200HX listed since late 2008 hasn't come out yet and they don't have the 750HX listed so I don't think the ULOD is very reliable anymore.
