Not questioning your knowledge of PSUs as I'm sure you know more than me, just asking for conformation... you are saying the corsair CX750 in a system that is overclocked but does not exceed the rated current of the power supply is dangerous?

You sir are excellent! Thank you very much for this. The one thing I have always banged my head on when putting a rig together is the PSU. This is wonderful information. thumb.gif

Take care... Todd

I would not do any kind of overclocking with a CX if it where me

That does not mean you cant i just dont think you sould

Sounds confusing i know

If i had a CX myself and a system i would not miss i would try and see where it limits is and what it can take

Problem is i dont so i cant say 100% it will be fine keeping it or 100% it will blow up its somewhere in between

I know this thead sounds like an alarm thread which was part of the point to get everyone attention

I think I disagree with you biggrin.gif

I can't find a bad review of the CX series (including the review you linked to) and I can't find any evidence of these PSUs failing or blowing systems that are overclocked! I'm not sticking up for these PSUs because I own one, if they are genuinely a problem I will replace mine but I have no reason to think they are a problem in an overclocked system.

In the OP you state ..non stressfull tasks like your basic office/media/web browsing .... why are they making a 750w PSU to do this?

Honestly, we're all a bunch of snobs. Most PSUs work fine in most computers.

I love my CX 750M. It has been nothing but reliable since the day I bought it and so has my cx600. I was running a crossfire setup along with an 8320 oc'd to 4.5 without a hiccup for months. I only got the 750m because I wanted a modular PSU. I have not a bad word to say about the CX series.

well it's good to know that my CX 430 isn't major overkill for what I'm using it for. (which is just powering up a low low-end APU build)
