Difference between Corsair Enthusiast and TX Series PSU's?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am planning on buying this 750W PSU, but as you can see it comes in both an Enthusiast Series model and a TX series model.


What is the difference between them and which one should I get for my CF 6870's and 965 BE (Yes I know 650W is enough but I want the 750W for future upgrades)?

Also, how are Corsair's PSU's? Are they decent quality and do they last?

TX is basically a non modular version of the HX series.

Both are fine.

I'd get a TX750, because the CM 690II has alot of cable management options.

Amazon.com: Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750-Watt TX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply compatible with Intel Core i7 and Core i5: Electronics.

Wait a second, you've linked to the TX750 v1 which has been superseeded by the superior v2, . Edit: I see now, there are buttons for enthusiast or TX, basically they seem to be calling the V2 the enthusiast. AFAIK the v2 is a good deal superior to the older v1 so would be worth 5 bucks more.

Sticking with Corsair, if you don't care about modularity the v2 is a good choice. If you want modularity you can go HX750 for partially modular or AX750 for fully modular. They are both great performers.

Corsair generally has a great returns system and excellent custormer service, which is why many just go straight to their stuff. You can get equal performance for a good deal less cash if you go to other brands though, check the recommended PSU list, however you may have more mixed results if you have a problem and need to RMA or whatever.
