Anyway Im in, my spare is a HX450, and Ive got a HX850 in my rig

Unless you are thinking of adding a second GPU, the HX450 would be more efficient inside your system wink.gif

Yep, I went to the first page and was just thinking about that. I went to get my manual: Here are the specs:

Specs:
Dimension: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L)
Power: 450 Watts
80 Plus: Bronze
ATX 24-pin & 20-pin: 1
EPS/ATX12V 8-pin/4-pin: 1
PCI-E Connector 8-pin/6-pin: 2
4 Pin Peripheral Connector: 8
SATA Connector: 6
Floppy Connector: 2
MTBF: 100,000 Hours




Oh, now that I have the manual with me, I just remembered that at the time the HX450w was sold, there were two additional HX ones: the HX520w and the HX620w.

But they are actually older in design and they came to market earlier too: check out this HX620w review (http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/p...odular_psu/1)- the manual does not even have the HX450w listed on the cover - my manual lists the three PSU's). They have three 12v 18A rails, while the HX450 is newer, rounds the wattage to '50' like all the ones that are for sale now and has a single 33A rail. The color scheme is different too. The HX450w already has the newer color scheme. Oh, and the HX520w and HX620w only carried a 5 year warranty.

More work for you to do hehehe.

And here are the specs for those:

HX 520w:

Specs:
Dimension: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L)
Power: 520 Watts
80 Plus: standard (not advertised) but certified: check here:http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80P...x?id=25&type=2
ATX 24-pin & 20-pin: 1
EPS/ATX12V 8-pin/4-pin: 1
PCI-E Connector 8-pin/6-pin: 2
4 Pin Peripheral Connector: 10
SATA Connector: 4
Floppy Connector: 2
MTBF: 100,000 Hours


HX 620w:

Specs:
Dimension: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L)
Power: 620 Watts
80 Plus: standard (not advertised) but certified: check here:http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80P...x?id=25&type=2
ATX 24-pin & 20-pin: 1
EPS/ATX12V 8-pin/4-pin: 1
PCI-E Connector 8-pin/6-pin: 2
4 Pin Peripheral Connector: 10
SATA Connector: 8
Floppy Connector: 2
MTBF: 100,000 Hours



Cheers!

P.S. While checking the site above (see last link - directed from the 80plus site). the HX750 and HX850 are actually Gold certified. Corsair probably only manages to make them in volume with Silver efficiency and thus calls them Silver Certified. OR, they reserve the best and label them as AX series. But the fact that they are hiding those two HX series achieved Gold certification is nonetheless interesting.

Thanks! I got something wrong, but already corrected it in the original post.

The HX520w and 620w are not 80 plus Bronze certified. They are just 80 Plus certified. I also found out something interesting that I also added in the P.S.

Cheers!
