    the TX has 5 more amps on the +5V. the TX is supposed to be higher quality, but judging by the reviews the TX sounds like it has problems.

    Also the CX has more modular cables the TX is practical non modular.

    Now just saying that this would be a better PSU than both of those for only $10 more. Gold rated.

    This one is a killer deal Platinum , but it is 660w. Promo EMCYTZT307 save $36 plus has $20 MIR

    Version SS-660XP*2* fixes the coil whine.

    Thanks, but I've heard bad things about Seasonic.

    I think I'll go with the CX750M.

    CX750m last i checked is MADE by Seasonic, it seems to me you have no idea what your choosing between your looking at corsair units and they are rebadged Seasonics.

    When did you last check, because both the TX750M and CX750M have always been made by CWT.

    Next time you want to say someone has no idea what their choosing between, make sure you actually have an idea yourself.

    my bad i was think of the TX 750v2 which is in fact a Seasonic unit, besides that theres nothing wrong with the Seasonic units

    if there were then that would mean

    NZXT Hale 82 and 92 series
    Various Corsair units
    Rosewill
    XFX
    and Seasonic themselves would be junk and their not. So what exactly is so terrible with Seasonic units that you wont buy one?

    Other units with good reviews and warranties

    Not modular but is Platinum efficiency Oem is ATNG has a 7 year warranty and as its Rosewill RMA is usually handled by Newegg directly

    Rosewill FORTRESS Series FORTRESS-750 750W Continu...

    Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 750w 80+ Gold Modular 20% off promo drops it to $120
    Thermaltake TPG-750M Toughpower Grand GOLD 750W AT...

    and wow Corsair flipflopped on the OEM for the 750 series alot,

    TX 750V1 was CWT, TX750V2 is Seasonic, TX 750m CWT, certainly awkward since both the TX750 V2 and TX750m are both still up for grabs while the V1 has been discontinued.

    Never skimp on PSU. If similar models form same brand are different cost, there is reason, and that cost is worthwhile. PSUs are the one place where typically cost relates directly to quality.

    What bad things?

    I agree ... to a limit. You can buy cheap PSU's and come out on top. Like the CX430, a very cheap yet decent unit.

    Seasonic simply isnt bad. We still have 8 year old 350w seasonic PSU's running here at work, and all PSU's i aim to buy are Seasonic based.
