    Default Corsair TXM or FSP Hydro G?

    Hello everyone I have enough budget to buy one of these power supplies. I don't want to buy another psu for at least 5 year so which psu should I choose. Corsair txm 750w or fsp hydro g 750w? Thanks for the advices.

    EDIT: The Hydro G is loud, TXm would be a better choice, my bad.

    Yeah. That's not a good reason to buy one over the other.

    Despite the bearing used, the fan is horribly loud due to the large hub and smaller blades.

    Performance wise, the Hydro G falls short of everything other than transient load tests.... but I've recently found that you love to focus almost exclusively on transient load response results and nothing else.

    Sorry, I was looking at the noise graph from Aris M.'s review of the Hydro G, and mistakenly thought that the TXm also produced the same 37-40 dBa at max load, when it actually produces 31-34 dBa. I'll edit my other comment then.

    It does? According to the review I mentioned earlier (https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...pply,4462.html), the Hydro G seemed great in all aspects of operation besides the noise levels. Are we looking at different reviews, or I am misinterpreting the review...?

    I think that he was just asking transient of 'CX series' exclusively, and he also did not judge anything on that..?

    Does he really need 750 watts? You could power what is left of Detroit with a 750W PSU.

    That's not saying much.
