Corsair duel : new HX750 Gold vs older AX750

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
The newest version of the Corsair HX Gold series, in particular the model HX750 is considered an high-quality product ?
Compared to my used AX750 ( over 1 year ) are there much difference in terms of quality and features?

Apart the 100% modular offered by AX series are there other tangible differences between the two products in practise ?

I am asking because I received the new HX750 as gift and I would like to sell one of the two, I want to know if I should sell the current AX750 used until now.

I thought I remember reading in here a few times that the HX series had better components. That's why I went from a HX750 to another HX series - I could be very wrong but I'm sure there was a reason as to why I chose the HX over the AX series.

Like Gfh has said though - the warranty is important and to be honest if there is a difference I doubt it's by much.

HX750 has a 7 year warranty also. I heard the HX1050 isn't that great, but ok. If that's anything to go by, I'd stick with the AX750.

Just have to find out the OEM of the hx750 and then you'll get an idea if it's a good unit or not.

New HX750 is kind of a sidegrade or slight upgrade (some steps forward, some back) over the old HX750, which was likewise in some ways better than AX750 and worse in others. These are all very good.

Old HX750 was CWT DSG, while new HX750 is CWT PUQ-G, both a bit modified and a bit better than what you usually see from the platforms. CWT makes everything from bottom-of-the-barrel scrapings to this kind of premium stuff, so that by itself is not much of an indication.

There's not enough of a difference to warrant taking out one and replacing it with the other. AX750 has a better fan, I guess, in addition to being fully-modular. New HX750 also does the semi-fanless mode though.

ax 750 is a seasonic insides dont know about new one but corsair is mostly sesonic, i love my full moduler ax850.

Only way i get rid of my ax is with platinum rated psu, cant go wronge realy with one or the other, but you could get more cash for the unused unopened tx750 .

If you opened it should keep it then and sell the ax one, most ppl on ocn know the ax as a good power, I would keep for a spare build .

One year of usage is nothing, compared to how long it should last. Unless maybe you've been loading it hard 24/7, maybe with warm air as intake. These things have 7 year warranties because they're not built to keel over after a couple of years.

If it's lasted one year, I'd trust it more than a new or less-used PSU. It's made it past the first blip of the bathtub curve distribution of failures.

Everything in their current lineup but AX non-i and non-AX1200, HX650, and the phasing-out TX V2 are not Seasonic.

That includes CX, CX-M, VS, GS, AX -i, other HX, TX, TX-M. They have much more non-Seasonic than Seasonic, which doesn't really mean much as a lot of the non-Seasonic are very good.

The current Corsair PSU lineup consists of 32 units, of which 3 (three) are Seasonic.
