Corsair GS800 – Gaming Series Power Supply Review

A little over a year ago we took a look at Corsair’s latest mid-range PSU. Based on a CWT design and aimed at gamers the GS800 offered a nice balance of price and performance mixed with a design standing out a little. Time and the market move on though and now Corsair are back with a revised GS800 featuring new chassis, internal design and in theory, improved performance.

We have the 800w version of their revised (V2) Gaming series on our test bench today and will look to see if it is a worthy successor for those looking for something a little different style wise.

Packaging and Bundle

Corsair packages their GS800 in a box with styling which matches their brand identity and the new chassis of the PSU. We get a little information on the product on the outside and inside the unit is protected well by a second cardboard box, cardboard crumple cube and plastic wrap. Interestingly this use of a cardboard inner makes the overall packaging more environmentally friendly than previous units.

Bundled with the PSU are an information leaflet, mains plug, cable ties, and a set of screws for use during the installation of the product.
