    The difference isn't only the warranty. The oldest CXes were not 80Plus certified, only the V2 versions got the 80Plus Standard certification.

    Those are based off CWT PUQ-B, not DSAIII.

    Only the 550w new CX is universally rated as silver, other wattages are silver for one OEM and Bronze from the other.

    What about part numbers which begin with 75?

    That's everything that exists before the RPS number was used.

    Every CP part number directly correlates with a 75 part number. Every 75 part number directly correlates with a CP part number.

    So every 75-002018 is a CP-9020060.

    CX450M, CX550M, CX650M don't have a sleeve bearing fan anymore? It has always been advertised as sleeve bearing. CX450, CX550, CX650 were the ones with a rifle bearing fan.
