Appearance, Cables and Connectors

Like the Corsair AX 750W, this model has a simple black finish. On both sides of the PSU there are Corsair logos with the product name. With a usual fan grille and a small power switch it looks "boringly normal" in contrast to Antec's HCG series. The surface is scratch-resistant and those honeycombed ventilation holes at the back are relatively small, which is good for EMI shielding but may hinder airflow slightly.

Corsair has a nicely fashioned hole for the cables exiting the casing, which will protect the black sleeving and cables against damages from rubbing against the case. Cheap power supplies often have sharp-edged outputs that can destroy the sleeving or in some cases even damage the wires, so the protective cover around the edge is appreciated.

The TX750 comes with a large number of fixed cables. You'll want to make sure that your case has enough space to store unused cables, so you don't obstruct the airflow. If your case has a window, the fixed cabling can also look untidy, which is why most users with windows cases prefer modular cables.

Cables and Connectors
Fixed Main 24-pin 60cm
ATX12V/EPS12V 4+4-pin 60cm
PCIe 4x 6/8-pin 60cm
Peripheral 4x SATA 40-85cm / 4x SATA 40-85cm
4x Molex 40-85cm / 4x Molex 40-85cm (+ FDD adapter 15cm)

The Corsair TX750 V2 has fewer SATA connectors than the Antec HCG 750W, though the length of both mainboard cables (24-pin and 4+4-pin) are equal. Like Seasonic, Corsair offers an FDD adapter in case you need it. In total, the TX750 supports eight SATA and eight Molex connectors, which is more than enough to support most PC configurations. This PSU is also SLI and CrossFire certified.

    The review really seems to jump into things with no intro. Reply

    I thought I had copied over Martin's text from the front page summary, but I apparently didn't. It's not on the first page. Reply

    I hate to be a grammar Nazi but please change the title. How can something be new AND improved. It's either an entirely new product or an improved or upgraded version of its predecessor. Reply

    It's a newly released iteration that improves upon the previous iteration. Reply

    It's "new" as it just came out and "improved" since this is marked as version 2.
    Stop nitpicking.

    And stop ripping off George Carlin... Reply

    So if a comedian points out an oxymoron it's called ripping off? I'll keep that in mind. Reply

    Technically, you're not actually pointing out a grammar issue. Reply

    I quickly read the article, but I didn't see any mention of how well the TX750 V2 does compared to the its predecessor, the TX750?

    What are the pros/cons of going with the V2 compared to the original?

    Otherwise, great review, thanks!

    Same here. I was really looking for some comparison to the TX750 "V1", the original one. Reply
