Excerpt: Corsair is continually evolving their lineup of power supplies. Today, I'm looking at one of their latest evolutions to the TX series - the new modular TX750M model. Let's find out if the move to modularity in this series was a good one.
Excerpt: Corsair recently refreshed their TX series of power supplies. We took a look at both the 750W and 850W versions and found that they were both good units. Our main complaints with the two units were connector availability as the connector selection was a tad outdated. It would seem that we weren't the only ones to notice this and Corsiar has introduced a few new models into the TX series.
Summary: The Corsair TX750M can really deliver its labeled power at high temperatures, its voltages are closer to their nominal values than required (3% voltage regulation), and it has very low ripple and noise levels.
Efficiency is very good if you pull up to 80% of the unit’s labeled wattage (i.e., up to 600 W), between 83.1% and 86.2%. When delivering 750 W at high temperatures, however, efficiency drops a little bit below the 80% mark.
Summary: The new Corsair TX M series looks really good and will definitely satisfy users that are looking for an affordable Corsair PSU but can't get along with the non modular cabling system of the TX V2 units. Corsair has sucessfully introduced modular and high quality PSUs to the market with the TX M Series, at only a small price increase. If the price difference between the TX V2 and TX M units remains at $10-15 (TX750 V2 vs.
Pros: Handled full load flawlessly at 50°C operating temperature, Fairly quiet operation even with full load and at 50°C ambient, Good price/performance ratio, Decent voltage regulation overall, All rails registered controlled voltage drops in Advanced Transient Response Tests, Five year warranty, Quite rich bundle with a touch of luxury (cloth bag for PSU storage) despite the price category of the unit
Cons: Lots of hardwired cables. I would like it to have less native and more modular cables, 5V and 3.3V registered high spikes in Advanced Transient Response Tests
Summary: Corsair is clearly defining the market for its new "Enthusiast Series" 750 watt power supply. Now that we know who it is for, surely we know what to expect from it right? Corsair has climbed to the top with a few other brands in a short period of time, let's see if "enthusiast" means the same thing to Corsair as it does to us.
Excerpt: A while back, we took a look at Corsair's updated version of the TX850, which turned out to be a pretty fantastic performer. But that's not all Corsair has in store for us. Today I'm looking at the 750W version of this updated Seasonic based platform, and we're going to see what makes it different.
Summary: The Corsair TX750 V2 is a decent power supply, clearly targeted to users that want good 750 W unit at an affordable price. It passed our tests with flying colors, with good efficiency, outstanding voltage regulation, ultra-low noise and ripple levels, and good cable configuration.
, the new version is a no-brainer, providing higher efficiency and far lower noise and ripple levels.
