Corsair TX750w V2 or Corsair HX750w?

I know this question has been asked before on Tom's Hardware, but I couldn't find a thread comparing the HX750 to the newer TX750 Version 2. Is the hx750 worth the extra 30-40$?( 125$ with rebate) Besides it being modular, does it also have higher quality parts, less heat under loads, or more durable in general? The TX750 is much cheaper on newegg for 99$ with the Rebate, and is 2 or so years newer than the HX750.

What do you guys think? :whistle:

    They are both Corsair.
  3. Version 2 of the TX-750 has lower ripple numbers than the first version of the PSU. In my opinion, the HX750 is not worth the extra money, the TX750 will do you just fine.

    The brand has nothing to do with Corsair makes neither PSU in fact the company doesn't make PSU period. I believe the TX-750 v2 – Seasonic made =Excellent cons is non modular which is a deal breaker for some the HX-750 – Channel Well (CWT) (DSG platform) =Fair and decent yet it's silver plus rated and fully-modular Corsair HX750W Power Supply Review
    JonnyGURU WROTE THE FOLLOWING-
    It is very important to notice that Corsair HX750W, HX850W and HX1000W have nothing to do with other models from this same series. They use a complete different (and better, by the way) design using a DC-DC converter to generate their +5 V and +3.3 V outputs, like several other high-efficiency power supplies (PC Power & Cooling Silencer 910, Antec Signature, Antec TruePower New, Seasonic M12D and Cooler Master UCP series). These HX models are manufactured by CWT, while other models from HX series are manufactured by Seasonic. Why Corsair kept the same name is a mystery. In our opinion they should have used a different name so consumers would know they are facing a different product class, targeted to users looking a power supply with high-end parts and very high efficiency. @ Hardware Secrets http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/775

    So according to JonnyGuru, the HX750 would be a better choice since it uses a superior design?
