    Specifications

    So here are the specs of the TX750W 750W Power Supply Unit, directly from Corsair's main page

    Corsair TX750W Specifications: Model CMPSU-750TX
    AC INPUT 90-264V ~ 10A 50/60Hz
    DC OUTPUT +3.3V +5V +12V -12V +5Vsb
    MAX LOAD 24A 28A 60A 0.8A 3A
    MAX COMBINED WATTAGE 180W 720W 9.6W 15W
      TOTAL POWER: 750W

    So what comes in the box is basically the manual, the AC power cord, a case badge with a couple of cable ties, and the TX750W unit itself.

    The PSU itself comes with a plethora of power connections:

    • 1 x (20+4 Pin) Motherboard
    • 1 x (4+4 Pin) 12V
    • 8 x SATA
    • 8 x Traditional Molex
    • 4 x PCI-E
    • 2 x Floppy Molex

    There are obviously some benefits and some downsides to this large number of connectors. For one thing it can be a potential mess for those who don't need these many connectors but luckily all the cabling is nicely sleeved. With the supplied cable ties one can remedy the issue of dangling cables.

    A nice thing about the cabling is that there are 3-4 connectors on each cable, making it efficient for the minimalist to hook up to four components using one cable. This can definitely add to less clutter in the end and the sleeves on the cables make it that much better. One thing also worth noting is the fact that the PSU uses a 120mm fan to cool itself, making it not only a potentially powerful addition to your system but also a quiet one. Corsair definitely put a lot of attention to detail on this line because we notice that there were no sharp edges to the casing and also took note of its nice matte paint.

    For those who intend on running high-demanding graphics card(s), overclocking their GPUs and/or CPUs, and/or running a ton of optical and hard drives, this unit looks like it has more than enough for the enthusiast gamer. Let us see if it can handle what it was built to do. Off to testing we go...
