What the heck is the difference between the TX850 V2, TX850W, and TX850M? For crying out loud!

If I had to guess; the TX850 V2 fixes stuff from the first design in the TX850W and the TX850M is for mobile devices. All that without even googling!

You probably should've Googled it then. The TX850M is modular. What mobile device needs a computer power supply, let alone an 850W unit?

Hey, it was just a guess, if I was buying I'd be doing my homework like everyone else here and I did come to think of it when I went with the Corsair AX-850W for my new build. Because let's not forget, not only is there a side rung but an up and down rung as well with Corsair.

Brace yourself, the V3 units are out as well. biggrin.gif

As for the difference, the TX and TX-C are EOL for a long time now, and obsolete so I won't bother explaining what and how... the TXv2 is Seasonic SS-850AT internally (same as the NZXT Hale82 850, XFX Core 850, SilverPower SP-S850, Seasonic M12II 850, etc), which is a very good mainstream platform... the TX-M is CWT PSH III internally (a precursor to the current PUQ-B platform found inside the new GS series from Corsair and a whole lot of other products sold by a variety of vendors that I won't bother listing), it's not as good as the TXv2 but it's still a solid product... the new TX and TX-M units are made by Hipro and haven't been reviewed yet, but Hipro is a good OEM and they should be at least on par with the units they replace (quality and electrical performance wise).

Hey an informative post. Thanks, I do appreciate it. I would like to stick with a seasonic rebrand, so the M is definitely out.

What you have there is a ~300W system at full load... why are you looking at 850W PSUs?... you'd be far better off with a lower output, high end unit.

Pulling 550 from the wall now at max load (p95, furmark, all peltiers and rad fans at max) and between 480-515 gaming, would like to have headroom for another 670, which will be another ~150 watts.
