TX750 alternative

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi

My TX750V2 had been making a clicking sound occasionally. I've been told that it may just be the sound of the fan and I've been told a number of tests I can do to see if i just have a noisy fan.

Assuming I need a replacement, I can't get one off Amazon as they no longer sell it first party. However, they said they can send me any other psu they sell directly and then I can send mine back.

Question is, is the TX750 ok, or should i change to something else?

Build :

i5 3750K (may over clock)
Asus P8Z77 V LX
Samsung 840 250gb
WD Caviar Black 1TB
EVGA 670 FTW SIG II

The TX750 delivers 62A on the 12v rail and my gfx card only requires 30 min.

I don't think I'd sli... My motherboard only supports CF, but I suppose if it would be a better idea to get another 670 rather than the 7xx or 8xx ( is 9xx pushing it?) card, then getting a new motherboard would be ok i guess

Simple answer : not in the near future

The nicest reasonably-priced 750w model I could find that Amazon sells directly is the Rosewill CAPSTONE-750-M. It's 80-PLUS Gold rated semi-modular (i.e. the 24-pin and 8-pin CPU cables are fixed) model and is a rebadge of Super Flower's highly-regarded "Golden Green" series.

They're selling it for $109.99 currently, so if you have about that much return credit for your Corsair that's the one I'd get. Here's a review of the nearly-identical non-modular version from JonnyGURU.com outlining its build quality and features.

You have the XFX 750W Pro very good PSU, but why do you need a 750w PSU when a 650W would run your system even if you go SLI? Dont waste money were you do not need, more watts are only good if they are used. (If you dont plan on SLI a 550W is more then enough but a 650w will keep the option open though)

My Advice is a TX650w, Corsair TX650-M, XFX650W Pro, Antec HCG 620W, SEASONIC BRONZE M12II-620/650M

That system would be more than fine on 400 watts. If you don't plan to go dual card anytime soon,

I already have a TX750... It was just whether getting the same one was a good idea. Although I could save £20-30 and get a lower wattage psu....

However, I still need to so the checks to see if my psu needs replacing.

I don't plan to upgrade my PC for at least another 3 years... I guess lowering the wattage might be a good idea. But it's just if i decide to upgrade to a sli configuration, I'd need a new PSU (or would I? :-P).

In fact, that's actually quite a big point. Any help? Reckon 550W would be enough for SLI in 3 years? (I wouldn't need more even for just one card would I?)

While none of us can say for certain exactly how much power next generation cards will draw, the fact of the matter is that, at least with Kepler, power draw is WAYYYY down from Fermi. Kepler is a shockingly efficient architecture. A 550 watt is enough for any CPU and any pair of Keplers
