    Default Are Corsair CX450, CX550 and CX650 all the same platform?

    I've read favorable mentions of the CX450 here, though not as many of the CX550 or CX650. Are they all the same platform?

    (From the "New Corsair CX non modular starts to show up in webstores in Europe" thread it seems they are, but just wanted to make sure my understanding is correct.)

    Many thanks.

    Uh-oh. What does that mean - is one of CWT or GW not as good as what people have been talking about?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your post.

    I see that it was discussed in the later pages of the thread I linked, though as of that time (around Nov 2017), they weren't sure if one was better than the other.

    You're getting roughly equal performance and build quality. There will be minor differences between the two, but nothing outside the standard variance you experience with batch to batch manufacturing.

    I wouldn't be worried about which one you get.
