Wait, so the GS series is cheaper than the TX series? But the GS series has LEDs and an extra 50w. Not to mention, most PSUs can pull at least an extra 50w from their rated spec, no?

GS is aimed at a different market. The only major difference in the electronics is that TX series has Japanese secondary capacitors (NCC to be precise) while GS has Taiwanese (Teapo). Which means that theoretically the TX series should stay more reliable, longer, at least on average. But either version should last five years.

Hey, your rep count is the i7 socket, 1366.

Any idea what kind of caps are on my PSU? OCC did a review on it and they took it apart in the process(maybe that will help?).

The electrolytic capacitors are all rated at 105°C and quality components by Teapo.
Ah, I guess I missed this. Thanks!
