Why you can trust Tom's Hardware
The CX750F comes in two versions, black and white, and also features fully customized ARGB lighting. Its price is high, but Corsair didn't go cheap on the RGB lighting, increasing the production cost. The fully modular cable design and the modern platform provided by HEC are two things you usually don't find in the lower efficiency categories. Moreover, with two EPS and four PCIe connectors, this PSU can support a strong enough gaming system. Its efficient platform helps reduce energy losses under high loads, keeping internal temperatures and noise output control.
There are not many branded PSUs offering RGB lighting. The CX750F excels in this area since its lighting can be controlled manually through iCUE or a compatible mainboard if you use the provided ARGB adapter cable. Nonetheless, in PSUs, what matters the most is performance.
The CX750F offers decent overall performance, but there are better choices in this category, without RGB lighting, including the new Corsair CX750M (2021), the XPG Pylon 750, and the Thermaltake Smart BM2 with similar capacity.
