Cougar CMX v.3 850W Power Supply Review Introduction

Nowadays, it seems that most manufacturers have a subsidiary company, which brings them direct access to the retail market. Today we will be having a look at the new v.3 revision of the CMX 850W power supply by Cougar, the sister company of HEC/Compucase, one of the oldest manufacturers of power supply units. This is our second encounter with their products, after our review of the basic PowerX 550W several months ago which, although it did not set any performance records, its value-to-performance ratio was very good.

The new revision of the CMX series however is not a series designed with value in mind. On the contrary, the power supplies of the series are of semi-modular design and boast very interesting performance figures, thus clearly aiming towards advanced users, gamers and enthusiasts. It also boasts a unique appearance, mainly attributed to its orange color. Does it have what it takes to compete in today’s power supply market? We will find out in this review.
