Hey guys I have a Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 600 Watts PSU which have been running quite well for almost 2 years now and still going strong but the thing is that I haven't really read good things about this psu and I want to know what your opinions are on this particular psu.The reason why I am thinking about my power supply after such a long time is because I came across a very good deal on a corsair tx650 psu and I'm really considering getting that as I fear that my current power supply may not be able to handle hd 7950 which I'm planning to buy someday.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Do yourself the favor and take that deal on a TX650.

Hi - read the conclusion page knightdog linked and realize that
it's not an exception for the CM extreme series,(or elite, or
GX), it's the rule.

Hi again - cx600 is a good budget unit, but a step down in quality
from the TX series. Personally, I'd stretch for a better quality
PSU, but your funds will dictate that.

ONLY get the TX650 if its the TX650 V2 version. The rest are not so great but still better than Crappymaster.

all the corsair TX series have received good reviews from professional reviewers although there seems to be a few fan boy opinions that run counter to that

Corsair's new TX modular series gets a recommendation here today. And it is well deserved. This unit is exceptionally good for a little 550 watt unit.

Not exactly sure what it is you are trying to say here? Corsair doesn't make PSU's btw. Seasonic actually makes some of them for Corsair. :lol: 


Exactly my point, Seasonic makes the best and the V2 is made by Seasonic... So out of all the TXs, the V2 is the best...

INteresting.

Well do you doubt that Seasonic makes the best PSUs?

CWT makes the corsair 750 ver 1 at least that's what they say , so what's the point saying seasonic make a great PSU AND USING A cwt MADE PSU AS AN EXAMPLE ?
