Final Thoughts and Conclusions
Corsair is well known for having a great selection of PC power supplies, with something for everyone. Corsair’s new TX Modular power supplies bring modular cabling to their affordable Enthusiast TX Series. Both the TX550M and TX750M PSUs delivered clean DC outputs, with good efficiency and good voltage regulation. Both power supplies come with a good assortment of fixed and modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards. And let’s not forget active PFC, universal AC input and Corsair’s 5-year warranty. However, if you want better voltage regulation, even cleaner outputs, higher efficiency and don’t mind spending a little more, look to Corsair’s Professional Series or Professional Series Gold PSUs.

Corsair is THE best power
Corsair is THE best power supply manufacturer by far. I believe this particular model has a MTBF (mean time between failure) of 100,000 hours, which is insane. I am running a GTX 295, overclocked core i7, DVD burner, 10k hard drive, and 6 gigs of 1600 Mhz Ram with ease on this power supply with breathing room. When I get my other GTX 295 and hook up the Quad SLI, add another hard drive, blu-ray burner, and 6 more gigs of ram, I will need a 1200W power supply and I really wish Corsair made one. The only real “con” is that it isn’t modular so you need to have decent cable management to keep the airflow tip top. Buy this, you won’t be disappointed.
