They have a 4 rail model with the same part number. Which has very bad reviews. The 1 rail model has good reviews from what i've seen. I just bought one this AM. I made sure it wasn't the 4 rail one, you should do the same.
Also yours pushes 60A over 4 rails and the upgrade is 69 over 1
Has 2 x 6-Pin, 2 x 6+2-Pin yours is only 2x 6-pin
the upgrade is 80+ bronze certified yours was just 80 +
plus alot of little things like version, certification ect. that show as an upgrade from your previous. So from what I'm seeing it's def. an upgrade. Just my 2 cents if you do go w/ the 850w. Someone can confirm or deny if any of this means anything to you. But I don't think they will budge if it's obvious everything on the one they are offering you is better than the one you sent in. Good luck

^This, the Toughtpower XT x75 units are far better than pretty much everything Thermaltake has to offer up to 1000W including the Toughpower Grand units.

Ok, I emailed one of the reps I spoke to earlier. Very fast reply. Here is what he has to say. So I should choose the TPX-775M over the Black Widow 850W?
Quote:
I looked into the situation with the RMA department. The reason why you were offered that particular power supply is because our warranty policy is to replace the defective product with an equal to or greater “valued” product. There are two power supplies that we are able to offer you and I’ve listed them below:



W0319RU or TPX-775M



Both are great power supplies but you’ll notice that they are configured slightly different from the original power supply you had. The most important voltage from a power supply is going to be from the +12v rail. Your original one had 4 of these rails where the replacements we are offering have two. In that specific regard, this does not make this power a downgrade. Multiple +12v rails are produced as a redundancy to reduce the possibility of that +12v to fail. There’s a catch to that though. It does not provide as clean a power delivery as a single or double rail system. You’ll notice that most high end power supplies ($190 and up) use a single rail configuration because of this.



Now there is a pro and con to the W0319RU as the replacement. First you will have 850w vs the original 750w you had. So this will obviously be a minor positive. The con would be that it’s about 3A lower than your W0116RU. This is a very minor downgrade. The W0319RU has been tested to run 2x GTX 580 video cards with an overclocked i7 2600K. This power supply is very stout and can handle a lot.



So please let me know which one you want. I would suggest going with the W0319RU but of course that is your decision so I will leave it up to you. If you have any questions please let me know.

cant find the review for that 850 but if the 750 review is anything to go by i'd stay far away from that 850
