TPN 750? or TP-750?
I cannot find anything about a tpn 750 but the tp 750 shows more on google.

I agree that cases are very personal preference, so get what you like. I don't recommend the Storm Scout, but that's what was in your OP so I put that in there. Get what case you want pretty much. Since that's too expensive I would go for a 720 BE because it just has one less core and has the possibly to unlock.

Here's it updated:



I used a 790X motherboard because that gives you the option to Crossfire or SLI (with software hack). Now if you don't want to Crossfire/SLI get this board for cheaper: link

Well it's not that far away, AMD's website says it's coming out next year. Also, AMD doesn't pull the stuff Intel does, with their new sockets here, then more sockets everywhere. Which is why I'm going AMD next year, with hopefully, Bulldozer.

Ya I plan on getting one, I just thought I saw somewhere that it won't be AM3. If it is, I'm shelling out whatever the price tag is on one~

I would go with Pheadrus's psu suggestions, and spend more if necessary.

ya, cases are such a personal preference to me. i'm wanting to go custom not only for the better deals/performance/functionality you get with the price, but the experience of starting from scratch and making your own pc (basically a giant kinder surprise).

how well does the performance hit go for the software hack? do crossfire bridges work on SLIed cards?

Ya, i'm planning on doing the same thing if it runs in am3 as well!

His suggestion was actually even cheaper! Hehe.

Man this is really interesting actually. Now learning more on PSUs.

What other forms of quality does it have over the TX 750?

Sorry, I use TPN to distinguish the TP-550, TP-650, and TP-750 from the rest of the TruePower line. You see, there was TruePower, TruePower II, TruePower Trio, TruePower Quattro, and now True Power New. And they're all quite different. So I find it worthwhile to distinguish them somewhat.

The main thing is ripple suppression. Ripple is tiny fluctuations in voltage, on the order of tens of milivolts, happening thousands of times per second. High ripple can damage your components, notably capacitors on the graphics card and motherboard. On the +12V rail, ATX allows up to 120mV. Anything over that is likely to cause immediate hardware damage, within days; anything over 80mV will shorten your components; lifespan to a degree.

The TX750W has good ripple (under 60mV) up to about 600W loading, when it spikes up to ~90-110mV at 750W. Not dangerous, but very, very poor. The TP-750 stays under 45mV the whole way up.

It also has better voltage regulation (voltages are closer to their nominal values) and OCP (over current protection; what gives it "rails").

It has a comparable warranty, comparable build quality, better DC output quality (voltage regulation and ripple), better efficiency, is partially modular, and costs the same or less. There's no reason not to get it over the TX750W, and the only reason people still get the TX750W is either they don't know that the TP-750 is better, or just have a Corsair fetish.

That's really good to know. Thanks again!

Does my psu stay below 60mv? Don't want my components life shortened.

edit: just found this article. s12d 750 watt. Close enough to mine. scroll down until you see the graphs.
The 12v+ 1 rail stayed at 31.6mv when at a full load of 755Watt!!!
The 12v+ 2 rail stayed at 30.2mv when at a full load of 755Watt!!!
Guess this is a quality PSU.
