I liked the XFX series until I heard that they aren't made the same way as new Corsair or SeaSonic PSU's are. IDK if that's true or not or if it was and is now.

On the HX-750 only the 24-pin motherboard connector is hardwired.

Not necessarily accurate, but worthwhile to try nonetheless, is this PSU calculator by Antec.

It says I need 860W for what I do, and what I do is bench and stress. Plus I have some badass fans that pushed up my power rating. Maybe my shoddy OCZ PSU is what is holding my overclocks back afterall ~

Honestly what's killing your price tag on your build is your insistence of a CHIV and Phenom II X6. There are some other good 8 phase VRM FX boards out there to hold you over until CHV. Also, do you really need an 1100T? I think you can get away with a 955 or 1055 easily. This will free up cash for the other things you wanted to do.

XFX's Core Edition (650W and 750W) use Seasonic as the OEM and have the same internals as the Corsair TX-750 v2. I'd still take Corsair any day of the week, though: their customer service is better and the warranty is 2 to 4 years longer.

Your rig isn't pulling even 500W at max load on all components.

Actually, so is the 8-pin connector.

Odd that my HX 850 has the 24-pin, 8-pin and 2x pci-e hardwired.

I guess they assume there's a slight chance if you're buying the 750 you might not use the pci-e connectors, but on the 850 you'll be using at least 2.
Still, in any case, it's irrelevant to argue over this. You'll need to use the 24-pin motherboard connector and the 8-pin.

+1 on the AX series. Decent quality 750 is plenty

I'm not the one arguing with you over it. If you read my posts, I agree.

Would if I could. I'm way over budget already so I'm taking it a step down to the HX series
