They aren't "programmed to run at 50°C", that's just the temperature at which they were rated. Which means the wattage (and amperage) ratings are more likely to hold true when the PSU is under heavy strain in hot conditions.

80 Plus Bronze is bog standard by now, as is a low-RPM fan. If you want something special it's 80 Plus Silver or above, and PSUs that shut off the fan and run passively at low load.

Uhh, 850 watts?! I would expect any psu's "targeting" gamers to be 1100+ watts.
What's the point of the psu if you can't run 3 monster video cards on it?
Otherwise I would love to see what makes a psu "for a gamer".

What a load of crap. You don't need 3 graphics cards to be a gamer.

so stealth wires just mean that they are darkened.
it carries 98% of total wattage on two 12v rails so 840 total watts.

I have a 1000w HCG sitting at home in the box. My old 850w blew out after 4 years (go go 5 year warranty) and they had none in stock so they upgraded me to this brand new one. Can't wait to try it out when I build my next PC.

Corsair has a lot of different 750W PSUs. Some are substantially worse than this, some are probably around equally good as this, and one or two may be a little better.
