Anyone own Corsair TX650 V2? I can't find reviews

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have searched on Google and here in the forum but couldn't find any reviews for Corsair TX650 V2.
If you own one, please comment on it, especially the 12V rail ripple.
I am thinking of using the TX650 V2with the TX750 to power 5x overclocked AMD5850s.
Right now, the TX750 is handling 3x 5850 fine, but is reaching its limit. My kill-a-watt shows 700-730W from the wall socket.

why not buy a AX1200 and sell the 750?

even if you did use the 650V2 you would have to use a paper clip on the 24 pin connector to keep it on

The Corsair TX650 V2 is identical, so the above reviews apply. But to answer your question, +12V ripple is very low on that unit.

AX1200 is $200+, unless you know where it is on sale.
Two 750 or 650 units would come to $100+.
Newegg now have 650 for $65AR.

You linked me reviews for XFX. Are you saying Corsair and XFX 650W units are essentially the same inside made by the same manufacturer?

Yes I know what I linked you to
When I said "The Corsair TX650 V2 is identical, so the above reviews apply." I thought I had clarified why. Yes, internally the XFX 650W Core Edition and the Corsair TX650 V2 are identical.

Good stuff Shub.
I have repped you, and purchased the PSU.

You're welcome. Hope your dual PSU setup works out.
