Hmmm.. Perhaps I should call Mark up again, and see if he knows the scoop. I'm glad I won't have trouble with my $25 rebate for the "Core Edition" I bought, though.

I'm glad you guys said something. I was kinda wondering how that worked, with my bronze unit being based on a gold one. lol

EDIT: I haven't gotten around to calling XFX yet, but I just noticed Newegg put my review over on the TS 550 model. AND it is a gold unit! WTH do I have, then..? A miss labeled PSU..!? Not gonna be cool with that...

Not sure how this speaks for the XTR reliability but I was testing out a fan controller a while back when the fan controller suddenly smoked up and fried. I thought I had a faulty controller and had it RMAed. After that I had problems with my motherboard so I am in the process of RMAing it right now. I got tired of waiting and just went out to pick up another motherboard and tried to finish my build at which time I ran into the same motherboard problem as before, but this time the PSU took something out on the motherboard for sure as there was a terrible burning smell like hair burning from the motherboard and I heard electrical popping. What's annoying is that a simple PSU tester tells me that the PSU is working perfectly fine so I kept believing it I guess the issue is a bit more complicated than simple voltages. Maybe a grounding problem... I can't know for sure if my fan controller took out the PSU in the first place or if the PSU took out the fan controller. But I thought I would just write about it as I am in the process of trying to RMA the XTR and I hear XFX doesn't have the best support around. We'll see how everything works out.

Keep us updated & good luck!

Maybe try Swedish fish to speed it along.

Took the motherboard back and had it refunded but upon inspection the worker there pointed something out to me and seems like this time around the PSU took out the CPU along with the mobo... The terrible smell I thought was coming from the mobo was actually the CPU burning.

My phone isn't good enough to take detailed photos but as you can see here the 2 spots have been scorched.

We realized this when we noticed a black spot on the back of the CPU. It burnt all the way through the PCB. Tested the CPU and it was clearly dead.

So my XFX TX 650 W arrived today. But for some reason on the actual untit it says the model number is XPS-650W-SEW, which is for the bronze rated older PSU - the TS should be 80+ gold! Elsewhere on the PSU it does say gold, though.

Any idea if this is indeed the XFX TS? Correct seriel number should be XFX TS Series P1-650G-TS3X (650W). The SEW is bronze rated, but my XFX says it is gold rated. Just has a SEW seriel number...

The box and manual imply it is the TS series. And the stats on the front (not including the model number) match up with the official 650W TS specs.

Hm. If I hooked this up is there any way to tell what PSU I have without relying on the packaging... ?

EDIT: I have just registered the s/n on XFX's website and it is recognised as the corrected 650W TS too. Further implying it's just the labelling that's incorrect.. ?

Yeah XFX has messed up big time with the S/N

The dimensions of the unit (HxWxD) match the 650 TS, which is the unit I wanted... the 650W-SEW is a different sized, older unit, at least according to this review, and comparing pictures, physically, my PSU matches the TS, not the SEW. So I'm hoping it's just the model number that's been incorrectly printed? It's weird that the specs match the TS unit, yet ON THE SAME LABEL they print a different model number that would have different specs.

So would you bet that this is the correct PSU with a printing error? :/


EDIT: amusingly enough, if I go on the XFX website and look at the pics of the PS units, I think they have the incorrect model number printed on the 650W and 750W version - take a look at those pics and I think I can see a SEW on the end of the model number rather than a TS3X! The 550W version seems to have the correct model number, though.

The best way I see to test it is to look at the connectors and the efficiency at the wall

TS seems to have 10 SATA power and EPS +12V 8 pin
Quote:
Cable Connectors
Fixed FDD : One Connectors
Fixed Peripheral : Up to 4 Connectors
Fixed 6-pin PCI-E : 4
Fixed ATX12V / EPS12V : One 4+4-pin, One EPS 12V 8-pin
Fixed Motherboard Connector : 20+4-Pin
Fixed SATA : Up to 10 Connectors

Someone here had a core edition packed in a TS box.... so physical dimensions are iffy tongue.gif
