    Vreg was far from impressive, and efficiency was a let down as well.

    All in all, I'm not really impressed with these guys. Given the competition; the TX-M's most likely won't get a recommendation from me.
    If this guy was closer to the $100 mark, then I'd be more inclined.

    I don't understand why not put two more peripherial connector on the module and save some hard wire to be a real module PSU? maybe a real TXM will make HX looks bad in price?

    The Good:

    above average regulation
    above average ripple suppression
    has a few modular cables
    The way it's presented in article, I thought it's "Bad" or "mediocre".

    Wow, Corsair is really aiming for Antec... by inundating us with SKUs. PSU looks solid enough, I guess.

    Solid enough, you could run a basic system off the hardwired cables, and add the modular ones when you upgrade.
    In fact, looking at my own rig, I'd only need the extra PCI-e cables plugged in myself.

    It's not really modular, it's more... a TX with a little less cable tangle when you don't need it. I'd say it's a sensible purchase for people on a bit of a budget. A decent enough unit for the money. And besides, only bronze vs silver isn't enough to differentiate it from the HX.

    So the TX750 V2 is Seasonic, but the TX750M is CWT again? Sheesh. I had totally missed that.

    Yeah i had the same thought when i hit the tear down page Proximon. With so many different platforms floating around for them in that range its getting a bit confusing. Which CWT platform was it?


    Im curious what the reason for the introduction of the time readings was, i figure there has to be a reason, and did wolf check those heatsink screws for threadlocker?

    The reason for the split between vendors is to protect market share if something should happen to one vendor. If one of them goes belly up or the factory goes down or something, we still need to be able to sell PSUs.

    In other words, just relying on one manufacturer is a bad idea... that makes sense. Don't want to burn any bridges.
