According to the PM for PSUs, the TX950 is based on the DSG (same platform as HX750/HX850) with a few changes. First, it's designed for 80 Plus Bronze, not silver. Second, some components were changed internally in order to achieve the extra 100W of power at a reasonable price.

The way our product lines will be shaping up is that the HX is the premiere product line with the longer warranty, modular cables, and superior specifications, and the TX will be targeted for the price/performance buyer.

Interesting. Have you guys sent out any review samples yet (and to any of the "good" sites)?

Not sure - but I know we will be sending it out for review to the "good" sites.

We usually sample flagship products and such - the TX950 is our highest-wattage fixed cable PSU, and also the newest fixed-cable PSU in our line up, so it should be out there fairly soon.

That's good to hear. I'd take a slightly watered down DSG over a PSH any day.

Was just informed that review samples shipped out last week to all the major guys and a few of the lesser-known guys.

And what's about the different fans in the HX750/850?
Are there any other changes beside the fan?

Here in Germany the people don't like noise so if it's not quiet (at least with 'normal loads') you don't need to sell it here...

I personally think the HX750 and HX850 are very quiet at normal load, I can't even hear the HX850 in my 800D.

That being said, I believe the fans used are Yate Loon primarily, with the occasionally substituted Ong Hua (with identical specs) if the Yate Loons are not available.

Yate Loons are nothing special anyway. I don't know why you're getting so worked up about the switch.

You're a lucky one then. I spoke with some peoples which bought HX750/850 at my advice and unfortunately they're not dead silent in idle and some of them squeal in idle/load. And I spoke with a technician from our Corsair importer and he receive some complains about this behavior.
Technically new HX are very good PSU's but unfortunately I cannot recommend them for a silent freak.

Well that's the problem.
It's said that the HX750/850 shouln't be loud but there are many complaints about the noise of those twos!
So people send the units back where they came from (luckily you can send things back where they came from if you don't like them, here in the EU, if you ordered them online) and buy something else or they change the fan.

If that's so why didn't I see them?

And what's with the validation of the fan?
Isn't it a bit expensive to validate a new fan if you barely use them??
