Corsair TX750W Power Supply Review
Introduction and Features
Corsair Memory continues to expand their PC power supply offering with two new higher output units; the TX650W and TX750W. With a focus this time around on pricing and performance, Corsair’s new TX series is designed to deliver stable voltages, high efficiency and quiet operation for value conscious users.
The Corsair TX series power supplies feature a single, powerful +12V rail, energy efficient circuitry, and a large 140mm (120mm on TX650W) diameter, temperature controlled fan for quiet operation. The TX750W power supply supports dual graphic cards and comes with four 6/8-pin PCI-E connectors. And Corsair continues to back all of their power supplies with a 5-year warranty!

The Corsair TX750W power supply arrived securely packed inside a colorfully printed black and orange box showcasing the unit’s features and specifications. The power supply is protected by thick foam inserts and wrapped in a fancy black felt bag with the Corsair logo.
In addition to the power supply the box also contains a power cord, mounting screws, wire ties, Corsair case badge, and a printed User’s Manual.
Establishing an accurate load is critical to testing and evaluating a PC power supply. PCPerspective’s power supply test bench can place a precise 2,000 watt DC load on the PSU under test. Each power supply is tested under controlled, real-world conditions up to its maximum rated load (at 40ºC), using both 115 VAC and 240 VAC line voltage. Our current suite of tests includes:
• DC Load Regulation
• DC Line Regulation
• DC Cross-load (unbalanced load)
• AC Ripple and Noise
• Power Factor
• Differential Temperature
The Corsair TX750W power supply was evaluated on both features and performance. A full range of equipment was used to test the power supply under controlled load conditions.
• (2) CSI3710A Programmable DC load (+3.3V and +5V ouputs)
• (4) CSI3711A Programmable DC load (+12V1, +12V2, +12V3, and +12V4)
• FLUKE 87-III True RMS digital multimeter (Accuracy ±0.05%)
• Extech 380803 Power Analyzer (Accuracy ±0.5% of full scale)
• Hitachi V-650F 60 MHz dual trace oscilloscope (Accuracy ±3%)
• Powerstat Variable Autotransformer, 1.4 KVA, 0-140 VAC
• FLUKE 52-II digital thermometer (Accuracy ±0.3ºC/0.5ºF)
• Extech Model 407738 digital sound level meter (Accuracy ±1.5 dB)
• Custom Lian Li PC60 enclosure to simulate real-world operating conditions
