Corsair TX series changes - what we did, why we did it, and how it affects you. - Page 2

post #11 of 111
Let me give you the first plus rep for coming here. Done

I think all of us would feel better if an official review of one of the PSU's could be done (650TX).

I would be willing to buy one and give to the a reputable review shop if Corsair wont. I wont pay for the review. However, I think that Corsair would be confident to send one to Johnny Guru, or another shop, if they are proud of what they make?

Then an engineer who know what he/she is doing should be here to explain the changes made, for what purpose, and their outcomes.

Easy there Ingramli, the fact that he is here in the first place is a positive sign, no need to be rude to him. As he said, he will be in contact with a PSU engineer and will ask him our questions and post the answers.

According to the pic that he attached, they did change the revision level from a B2W (older) to a C. The new part is CMPSU-650tx-C , however thats just the 650TX, so as to what they did with the other PSU's, I have no idea.

@CorsairGeorge Are there any PSU's out in the wild without an updated label on them that are of a newer revision part? In other words, are there PSU's out there that have no distinguishable difference from the old parts, other than the internal components?

Youve illustrated that the newer 650Tx's have a new label, does that apply to all the newer revision PSU's in the TX line as well?

They updated the label, but they did not update the packaging.

To the general uninformed public, they appear the same at the "TXv1's"

Hard to say without actually seeing a box, and the newegg photos dont show the model number on the box. They do however show the Rev C model number on the PSU itself in the pics. Your right though, the general uninformed public would not know the difference, then again I dont know that they would care. Us enthusiasts on the other hand do.
post #18 of 111
i have not gone to corsairs web site... but i am sure there is a little small print there saying items can change with out notice!!!!


and that can be from slightly smaller heat sinks too bigger and getter capasitors. from what i red here you guys are a little pi55ed off from a smaller heat sink. what if they changed the capassitors and pcb too a higher and better one... yu guys would have NEVER complained saying cool the new tx-c range has come in and is brilliant.

now there was a post saying by someone probably the OP... they can not satisfy EVERYONE it is humanly impossible and if you are being a cheap a55 get the next psu size up say the 800 and not the 650.

To the OP ...... thanx for posting this stuff. some people really need to climb off the band waggon

If you actually read before OP posted this, you would read that its not just a simple heatsink change. Its a whole new psu. Sure it may be better but the pcb changed from a multiple layer pcb to just a single layer and a bunch of other technical things. Granted the general public would probably care less about these changes but little changes like this mean a lot to enthusiasts here on overclock.net and other sites.

Here are the previous articles regarding the issue:
http://www.overclock.net/power-supplies/898000-corsair-tx-line-changed-secret.html
http://www.overclock.net/power-supplies/899277-corsair-tx-finding-truth.html

I for one, base all my purchases on reviews posted. Now you will realize this is a big deal since the corsair TX psu's on reviews are based on the older revision, and since this is a different beast inside the same body, well you get the picture right?

OK.... so you guys are like sheep follow the leader. what does the leader do...,..?? is he some guy with loads of money and buys evrything and says this one is nice because it runs silently. we all have needs and they are all way diffrent to each other.

now how many people here actualy know what is going on inside a PSU? the components etc...........

this thread is going to be like a gpu thing is the 470 going to be better than the 570 etc.... (just an eg.) at the end of the day old items that you though where 5hit are improving loads and on the same par as the what we will call very good components or even might be better. we really do not know what is going on in the back ground of everything.

like the OP said he will forward the msgs on the the pus guy and he will respond. now saying this no we do not have to take cr@p from bad products but, if the company being who ever it is thinks it is best to put a specific component in because they think it is best then so be it.
