  • The king of Memory's new field-Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply Review

    Corsair Memory has an established reputation in the computer industry for
    producing some of the best memory available and they are expanding their
    product offerings to include PC power supplies.

    The Corsair HX620W paper carton is not small in volume

    In addition to the power supply and modular cables the packing box also
    contains a power cord, wire ties and a printed User’s Manual.

    The power supply arrived securely packed with large foam block. It seems
    that this PSU is very well transporting protected from damage.

    Enclose with many cables various in style that bear different kinds of use.

    Key Features:
    600 watts continuous power output
    Triple +12V outputs (up to 54A combined +12V)
    Dual Core CPU, nVIDIA SLI and ATI CrossFire Ready

    PSU exterior 1
    The power supply enclosure is painted matte black add crimson products
    stick for good quality feel.

    PSU exterior 2
    Both of side have product type sticker.

    PSU exterior 3
    Uses a single 120mm exhaust fan on the bottom for cooling.
    The open honeycomb hole on the back allows the exhaust air to exit the
    power supply with minimal resistance.

    PSU exterior 4
    Two PCI Express (6-pin) modular
    Five Main power modular

    Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside the HX620
    W power supply.

    Use ADDA high-quality fan
    The fan speed is automatically controlled by the internal component
    temperature (speeds up as the combined load and temperature increases).

    Under the general state, only several hundred rotates for the operation of the fan, nearly quiet and silent

    Test platform
    CPU:AMD AM2 Althon64 X2 4800+
    MB: MSI K9A Platinum
    DRAM:Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3
    VGA:MSI RX1900XTX CrossFire
    HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
    CD-ROM:BENQ 800A
    POWER:Corsair HX620W

    CPU OC 235X12=>2821Mhz
    VGA OC 648/1548Mhz

    MSI new edition controls software DualCoreCent
    It is not perhaps as accurate as ammeter that the host computer examines
    the voltage by board itself, but the software tools will mainly observe the supply power steady in high power consumptive.

    Await the standby state of ten minutes (whether right low picture, update once every 5 second )

    3.3V=>3.32 or 3.34
    5V=>5.00 or 5.02
    12V=>12.09 or 12.14

    Main power consumptive are one pair of X1900XTX cards
    To Observe the voltage variation by MSI tool , almost no change in the
    voltage at the time of 3DMARK2006 CrossFire operation.

    Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply

    1. Ative PFC with high quality feel black baking paint
    2. The modular cable design eliminates cable clusters and optimizes the
    airflow inside the computer case to help keep the system cool.
    3. Exquisite and securely packed, Corsair bag for cable.
    4. Industrial grade Japan made capacitor.
    5. Under the heavy loading state, the temperature of PSU is about more than
    40 degrees
    6. PSU offers the steady output even in heavy loading.
    7. It is quiet in most condition due to the fan speed is automatically controlled by the internal component temperature.
    8. The market price range from 160 to 170 dollars that mark down 10 to 20
    than other famous PSU maker at same level product.
    9. Backed by a 5-year warranty

    1. A little noisy at high power levels (Around 1,000 rpm)
    2. The material of Cable can be improved.

    Though Corsair just began to get into PSU field, the new products put out
    blockbusting and not defeated by other old brand PSU factories high end
    product. It also achieves good result at brand, price, feature, warranty, quiet
    and thermal.

    Windwithme believes the product without perfection in the world, but after
    experiencing CorsairHX620W ,It’s a nearly perfect product, No doubt , there
    is one more choice for user in the high end PSU market.

    Outlying words
    To the camera I am more and more fascinated
    Start with the toy that still has no time to examine recently ........
