    Arrow Corsair RM750x Review

    Just about a month ago, Corsair came barging in here with one whopper of a good unit in the RM1000x. It was a power supply so good I couldn't find one thing to complain about, and as a result Corsair walked out the door with only their second perfect total score ever. Now, I'm looking at the RM750i. Can Corsair do it again?

    VRM soldering is quite bad.

    Oh dear

    What happened to the primary control board?!
    Did it fall in water?? Or what's that yellow/brown stuff on there?

    And there are the same glitches in the same area I've seen on my Corsair PSUs...

    Especially the area under the Infineon Chip tends to be messy...

    Well, if you know where to look for, you'll always find some solderblobs. With this reviewed one for example C506 and R508, close to Q501...
    And a little further to the right R503, all on the main Board. The VRM Board is really messy....

    Maybe you really should thing about siwtching to reflow soldering for the daughter boards?

    Not up to me. I'm not the PSU PM.

    Heck.. Technically, I'm not even on the PSU team. I just write the reviewer's guides.

    i picked up two RM850x for $74 a pop (after rebate) at newegg a week ago. it was a steal. i saw reviews for 850W version on other sites and that thing was putting up platinum numbers with ripple under 10mV everywhere. corsair is really bring EVGA's own game to them. I don't even have a use for them yet! but I build systems often enough to make it worth having spares on deck ready to go.

    as for the soldering, i'm not worried about it. obviously not all units will be that bad. when companies are racing to see who can make the same product for cheaper, people will get lemons.

    For such low prices I wouldn't throw the first stone because of the buld quality. For the regular price however such details should be better, I'd say.
