We would like to thank Corsair for supplying the review sample.
The Corsair TX-M line consists of three models with capacities ranging from 550 W to 750 W. In this review, I will take a look at the 750 W unit, which has enough power to support a potent GPU along with a processor that won't bottleneck it. All TX-M models feature a semi-modular cable design to save some money and are classified below the RMx and RM lines in Corsair's PSU hierarchy. Moreover, all are rated Gold by 80 PLUS and Cybenetics, and the TX750M has a Cybenetics A- noise rating.
At only 140 mm long, dimensions are compact, and the rifle bearing fan for cooling measures 120 mm across. The OEM is Great Wall, while Channel Well Technology provides the platform for the RM and RMx. Build quality is high, with all capacitors belonging to good lines from Rubycon, Chemi-Con, and FPCAP, respectable Japanese manufacturers. Given the RM750 uses Elite and Su'scon caps and is supported by a ten-year warranty, I have to wonder why the TX750M with higher-quality parts has three years less. Apparently, the cost of providing a longer warranty has increased, and Corsair wouldn't want to create internal competition between lines. That having been said, the TX750M does use better parts than the RM750. Currently, street pricing for both of these is about the same.
