Asus ROG Strix 750W Power Supply Review

The strongest assets of the Asus ROG Strix 750W are the high performance and the silent operation, along with the good build quality.

The Asus ROG Strix 750 might be based on the new Seasonic Focus Plus Gold platform, but it has several significant differences, with the most notable being the larger heat sinks, which allow for a much more relaxed fan speed profile, and the double ball-bearing fan, which has increased tolerance for high operating temperatures. Indeed, the massive heat sinks, along with the larger PCB required to host them, make a difference, and the ROG Strix 750 is among the most silent power supplies in this wattage category. Nevertheless, it cannot claim the title from the Corsair RM750x, which scores a notably lower overall noise output level, achieving a LAMBDA-A+ rating in the Cybenetics scale

The major disadvantage of the ROG Strix 750 is the stiff price. It costs notably more than the competing units, including the Corsair RM750x, which achieves higher overall performance and features and even quieter operation, the Seasonic Focus GX-750, and the Fractal Design ION+ 760P

If you don't mind paying more to get this power supply, you will be left highly satisfied by its performance and the silent operation. Moreover, it is the only PSU in this category offering a double ball-bearing fan, which is suitable for operation under harsh conditions (i.e., higher than 40 degrees Celsius operating temperatures).

    Not sure if I got a faulty unit. I built a PC with Ryzen 3900x and Gigabyte Rtx 2080 Super along with this PSU. And it failed me after 3 days. My PC shuts down whenever I login to windows and randomly when I open a exe file. After swapping new motherboard, new Ram, new graphics card, i found the problem is with PSU. And I use thermaltake 850W 80+ and now everything is good so far.

    its not because of the psu, the psu is good, but it doesnt have enough volts to power that cpu and graphics, its like a mouse is pushing a steel cube, just doesnt work out.

    A 750w PSU is more than enough for a 3900x which itself will never really get over 150w, and an RTX 2080 super, but back to the theme I have the ROG Thor 850w and it is the best PSU I ever had in my 25 years having a PC. Asus is not cheap in any facet of hardware but the quality of their components is some of the best out there.

    Hi all! I just bought a bunch of ROG parts and got the THOR 850W PS. I've been seeing some similar builds out there and some say if you OC the CPU, it might get a little tight on wattage. Could you please share what you all think is a safe amount of overhead? I haven't decided on how far I want to go on overclocking yet. Here's the current list and estimated wattage...

    I have that PSU too, you will be fine with 850w. Normally you allow for 20% overhead, you still have plenty of room.....
