where do you get most of your PSU information? i currently run the TX series from corsair and i have had a few requests to build some other gaming PC's from a couple of buddies. i would like to get them set up with some quality parts. i puchased my PSU only cause it was on sale and had "good" reviews on newegg. i would much rather know for myself rather than rely on some biased reviews....

But most of it is just lots of time and hard work spent on reading and research

Welcome to OCN

And sad to hear its dead

Do you have the CX600 or CX600M

The older CX600 is even worse then the CX600M

The CX750M is not the same PSU as the other CX units

Would still get something better

Well I bought one a couple months ago for my sig rig cause the hx 850 went out. So I could still game during the rma process. Worst idea ever......Life happened and well i didnt have the time to rma anything finally monday set up a new rma for the hx 850. Yesterday the cx 600m took out a ssd,the power supply, and the sound on my motherboard. And all i was doing was playing bf3 nothing was overclocked at all.

Yeah? This is indeed suprising. I know a number of people who have CX's installed in overclocked systems. No issues at all. Heck, I'm still using my my CX430 with a decent overclock and it works fine to this day.
