  • DeepCool PX850G ATX 3.0 Power Supply Review



    With the launch of the latest round of NVIDIA RTX graphics cards we also get a taste of the new PCI Express power connector called 12VHPWR.  This new connector is somewhat smaller than the traditional PCI Express 6-pin and 8-pin power plugs but offers some additional wires to better control power delivery and allow the addon card to determine how much power it can pull from the PSU. 

    You get a similar setup when charging hi powered Lipo batteries to prevent them from becoming over charged and exploding.  Well, the new 12VHPWR PCI Express 5.0 power connector on ATX 3.0 compliant power supplies offers a similar protection and is one of the primary reasons why you will want to upgrade your PSU when you upgrade video cards.

    In this review we will be looking at the DeepCool PX850G.  This new power supply is virtually identical to the PQ850M in that they both feature a fully modular cable design, they are both 80 Plus gold rated, both feature a switchable hybrid fan design and modern square mesh chassis venting. 

    Of course, the major difference is that the new PX850G is ATX 3.0 compliant and features a dedicated 12VHPWR power connection.
