post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'll be building my first pc in a few weeks. But I can't decide between those two PSU's.
What are the differences and which one should I choose?

other future parts:

Corsair Carbide 500R White
Asrock z77 extreme 4
Intel i7 3770k Ivy Bridge
Asus 7870 Direct CU ll TOP
Corsair Vengeance 2x8 1600Mhz CL10 1,5v
Western Digital 05 TB Caviar Blue 7200 RPM 3,5"
Samsung 830 128 GB
Scythe Mugen 3 PCGH Edition

Thanks Guys!

Both are good. The HX is supposed to have better effiency, but if you are not the one paying the electricity bill you wont notice it.

Off topic : You should have a look at the samsung RAM instead of the corsair, i've read that they are very high quality modules.
Also i'd swap the i7 for a i5 and get a HD 7950 / HD 7970 with the change.

Okay thanks! Will there be a huge difference between powerconsumption? Also, are they both modular? For the Ram, Samsung isn't available in my county (The Netherlands). And I chose an I7 because I will render, and I won't game alot.

Thanks for your reply! =)

Both are SEMI-modular, but it should not make any differences because you are going to use the cables that are hardwired (not modular).

The difference between the power consumption should be around the 4-6%, but do not quote me on that.

I cant help you here. 

IMHO it will takes a few years for the cost of the extra power taken from the TX to be more important than the price premium that you paid for the HX.


Basically, I think that most people choose the HX (or the AX) over the TX because it has more swagga.

EDIT :

HX is quieter so I always presumed it was better

Btw you won't need a 750W for your build, a 550W will do fine. I would probably personally go 650W as it is likely to be quieter/efficient/cooler/feels better.

Of course this is unless you plan to go multi GPU in the future that is.

My TX750 doesnt make any noticeable noise. Coupled with a high end GPU (which is why anyone would buy such kind of PSU), there is no way you are going to hear it. thumb.gif

Nice! Well you're right, I should have clarified the situation I was referring to: It makes a difference where you want the sort of build where the PC so silent that you cannot perceive whether it's on or off until you put your ear to it. And it should stay that way when doing anything except gaming.

In such cases if you are pulling 300 - 400W the HX is quieter than the TX.

The power draw of that system will peak around 250~300w during synthetics. If you haven't bought it yet, I would suggest looking into a higher-end, lower output PSU.
