DeepCool PQ850M (850W) Power Review
While DeepCool may never have been successful in breaking into the mainstream (in the West at least), they still remain a well-respected manufacturer. In large part for bringing many excellent and, above all, affordable products to the market. Over the past few years, however, it looks like the company has tried to break away from the more budget-oriented product level (* cough * cheap * cough *) in favor of the middle to upper layers. A compromise, if you will, of better performance with only a slight increase in price. And with the release of the PQ850M power supply, that’s exactly what we’re looking at here.
DeepCool PQ850M Power Supply
The DeepCool PQ850M packs a (perhaps) surprisingly impressive array of features. Coming as a fully modular 80-Plus Gold efficiency PSU, it already ticks two of the biggest boxes the discerning PSU consumer should be looking for. In terms of what it offers, however, it only scratches the surface. – Combining the above with 850 watts of output power, this is certainly a noticeable improvement over what we usually expect from DeepCool. As such, it will be more than interesting to see if this advancement on paper translates into impressive performance levels.
However, if 850 watts is not for you then there is great news as this new range of power supplies are now available in outputs ranging from 650 up to 1000! – For this review, however, we’ll be looking specifically at the PQ850M (850 watts) model!
