Closed HX750W now gold certified?? Tags: Power Supplies Corsair New Build Components Product Last response: December 15, 2012 5:25 PM in Components Share White_Noise December 14, 2012 7:17:24 PM I recently accidentally bought a Corsair HX750w PSU for my new build. I thought I ordered an AX750w, but realized I got the HX when it arrived. BUT....it seems that the HX now is gold certified. So what is the difference between the HX and AX now besides the AX being modular? Does the HX Gold still shut the fan off below 25% power usage?

According to this HX is also modular and the fan only comes on when needed: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Share White_Noise December 14, 2012 10:57:11 PM Seems like there's absolutely no need to shell out an extra $60 for the AX gold (ahem, excuse me platinum) edition unless a possible 3% increase in efficiency impresses.
