I have this Corsair CS850M 850W 80Plus Gold PSU since all the way back in late 2017 or early 2018, when I used the FX-8350...
In these 5 years of service it went through 4 hardware (CPU/MOBO/GPU) upgrades, and never failed or has shown any sign of malfunction...

How much longer can I trust it to run my rig?

Probably another 4 or 5 years, depending on what hardware you are running. They only warranty that one for 3 years, so it isn't super high end.

If you are keeping the temperatures reasonable and not running at 700-800W all the time, it could last a long time indeed.

CSM was EOL at the end of 2017 so you probably bought one of the latest. It had a pretty bad fan and came with only 3 year warranty for a reason. But if it runs it runs and when it fails it doesn't harm anything. The protections are decent.
