THey are also great. I had an HX620 for years in my C2D rig, whic I just sold and PSU was still as solid as a rock.

Only reason I went AX this time was for the fully modular cabling. IMO the HX series isn't really a step down.

Total system power consumption, not individual component power consumption. And they didn't say which test the power consumption figures were from. If it was from the Modern Warfare test that would also include GPU power consumption. Also, an i7 920 overclocked to ~4.5GHz consumes ~200W, while one at stock consumes ~100W. Looking at the graph, I'd say the Thuban is pulling about as much as an i7 920 at 4.5GHz.

Go for at least 750, I like corsair, if you want modular go for the 750HX if you want a better price, go for the TX.
