Corsair Enthusiast TX750 V2 and TX850 V2 PSU Review

Author: Lee Garbutt
Manufacturer: Corsair Components

A Detailed Look

The TX V2 power supply enclosures are painted matte black with orange and white lettering and are 160mm (6.3”) deep.  The TX750 V2 and TX850 V2 both use a single 140mm fan on the bottom for cooling.  The dual ball bearing Yate Loon Electronics fan (D14BH-12) is a high-quality fan designed to provide excellent airflow and cooling.

The back panel includes an On-Off switch and AC receptacle along with an open honeycomb grill that allows the exhaust air to exit the power supply with minimal resistance and turbulence.

The TX750 V2 and TX850 V2 power supplies come with the same assortment of fixed cables and connectors.  All of the cables are covered with braided plastic mesh sleeving and range in length from 23-1/2" to 39-1/2" long.  Both TX V2 power supplies include four PCI-E connector cables for multiple, high-end graphic card support.  Corsair uses the 6+2-pin configuration for added flexibility.

Note: there is only one 8-pin EPS connector (4+4 pin).  This won't be a problem for the majority of users (unless you have a dual CPU motherboard) but it creates a minor inconvenience for testing as I typically use the second +12V 8-pin connector on power supplies at or above 750W, to connect to an additional +12V load.
