[JG] Corsair TX550M 550W Review

Whew. That was a close one. For a minute there, I thought I wasn't going to be able to pull myself away from one of the most addictive games I know - Caesar III - to write this review. And yet here I sit, having successfully done it. I'd almost forgotten what daylight looked like.

Stop laughing. Just because I first started playing this game back in my Windows 98 non-SE days doesn't mean it's not addictive. What else is addictive? How about Corsair's ongoing commitment to quality. Yes, I'm reviewing another Corsair offering today in the TX550M, little brother to the TX750M I looked at not long ago.

Corsair's new TX modular series gets a recommendation here today. And it is well deserved. This unit is exceptionally good for a little 550 watt unit. It runs cool, it's incredibly stable, and it keeps ripple and noise under half of the ATX specification. No, it's not the latest and greatest when it comes to the push toward higher efficiency, but let's be honest here... the difference to your wallet between Bronze and even Platinum isn't as great as you might think. You could easily do worse than this unit right here.
