It (the X650) being silent is a good sounding feature.

I was thinking of doing that, too.
If it's less than the X650, I'll probably get that.

The AX750 is the exact same PSU as the Seasonic X750, however it will be more expensive. No point in waiting really, just to pay more money.

Is there any proof that it will be the exact same? It's been a while since Corsair had an exact copy of an OEM's PSU in their line-up. What I heard was that it will be "based on" the X series. Just like the HX750/850 is based on the CWT DSG, but good luck in finding another DSG that is built or performs like them.

I think i remember reading that the X series is an Indi unit, i may be wrong though. I don't really see how they could improve the X series though.

Wrong, they are made by two completely different companies. Flextronics was hired by corsair to create the ax750 while seasonic makes their own psus. That being said, PSU's are really getting to the point where they are all the same, so do not wait because the performance is already golden with the xSeries

No... Flextronics only designed and made the AX1200, the rest are based on the X series by Seasonic. And also, Seasonic are on of the largest OEM PSU manufacturers in the industry - over half of Corsair's product lines are OEM Seasonic units.

You are right on the fact that the performance is already amazing with the X-series, but you are completely wrong in saying 'they are all the same' - look at the AX1200. Inside it is VERY different physically to nearly all other power supplies. It is also the most efficient PSU of around the 1200W mark ever seen. So if there is nothing else like it, how can they all be the same?

Sorry, for the bad info Oli, you are probably right about the ax750 and ax850 . I read some reviews and they all said flextronics made the ax 1200 so I assumed they made the others as well .

About the ax 1200, it is the psus equivalent of the ati 5970 , nothing can touch it XD. Otherwise, yes everything in the OP's range is heading towards being the same performance wise. The unveiling of products at ComputeX showed that all major oem's are coming out with their own Gold psus.

Wahoo!

Just because they are gold, doesn't mean anything. They are ALL different when you look into specific details such as actual efficiency, voltage regulation, ripples etc.
