So, I just bought the Corsair TX750 V2 PSU, but I received the V3, made by Chicony Power Technology/HiPro, model number 75-001309, made in 2012.

Some people say it's a good brand, others say it's bad, with junk caps, and there are no reviews of it, at least none I could found.
Also, it has more amparage on the +3.3V, +5V and -12V rails compared to the V2.
V2 has 25A on the +3.3V and the +5V rails, 0.5A on the -12V rail, V3 has 30A on the +3.3V and +5V rail, and 0.8A on the -12V rail.

So my question is, should I keep this PSU, or return it and get my money back to buy another one?

Thanks in advance!

It's decent but i'd return it and ask for the TX750 V2 if you bought it because you wanted a seasonic oem psu.
If there's no TX750 V2, ask for the xfx 750 core edition.

Yeah, I tried to buy the V2 one because I thought it was better, since it's made by Seasonic, but I received this one, it was advertised as the V2.

But as far as I know, the V2 by Seasonic has been discontinued, I didn't know this before I bought it.

I live in Brazil, and I bought on a site that is just like eBay, where any people or store can sell.

The seller doesn't get the money until I say so, and I'm currently talking to him to return it, but if the V2 is really discontinued, and this is a good PSU, I may keep it.
