A Detailed Look (Cont’d)
The Corsair TX750W power supply comes with a basic assortment of cables and connectors, which are hard-wired into the PSU and covered with braided plastic mesh sleeving all the way to the end connectors. The cables range from 24” to 35” in length.

• Main power connector (24-pin/20-pin)
• ATX/EPS 12V (4/8-pin)
• (4) PCI Express (6/8-pin)
• (8) Peripheral Optical/HDD (4-pin)
• (8) Peripheral Serial ATA (15-pin)
• (2) Peripheral FDD (4-pin)
The TX750W power supply is fitted with four PCI-E connectors for dual, high-end graphic card support. Corsair uses the 6+2-pin configuration for added flexibility.
Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside the Corsair TX750W power supply. The overall layout looks quite good with components neatly organized and plenty of open space for good airflow.
Unlike Corsair’s previous HX520/620 and the VX450 power supplies which were built by Seasonic, the new TX series is manufactured by Channel Well Technology (CWT) who was also the OEM for the VX550. CWT has a good reputation in the industry for producing high output power supplies. It will be interesting to see how this particular unit tests out.
The primary side features a single, large Matsushita electrolytic capacitor rated for 105°C. The secondary side also uses high-quality Nippon Chemi-Con for reliable service. Overall, very good choices for capacitor selection; just what we would expect from Corsair!
Note the use of a plastic guard protecting the cable bundle as it exits thru the back of the power supply. This is a simple feature that is too often overlooked by the majority of power supply manufacturers.
