Conclusion: The Cooler Master GX 750 PSU, shown that it is more then capable of powering a moderately large sized computer with no draw backs. The only true draw back with this PSU is the non modular design of the cables, this may become a problem for cable management in smaller chassis types. But Cooler Master did keep the extra cables, at a minimum with this PSU, so even if you don’t use all of the cables, there are fewer cables to have to hide.
Summary: The Cooler Master GX 750W is a solid, all business power supply. Performance is right where it should be, posting solid numbers across the board. Even at heavy load, plenty of power is always available on the 60A 12V line.
In typical Cooler Master fashion, the GX 750W runs silent and smooth. The unit was consistently inaudible next to the rest of my hardware.
Summary: Cooler Master GX 750 W looks like a good option for users looking for a mainstream 750 W power supply, however it has a major flaw that prevents us from recommending it: noise level at +3.3 V and +5VSB outputs were above the maximum allowed when we pulled 600 W and above from this unit. High noise levels overload and can even damage components on your computer.
