Default TX650V2 vs TX650M

I ordered a Corsair TX650V2 from an on-line store and received a Corsair TX650M instead. Apart from the semi modular features, are there any differences between these two boxes?

Yes. The TX650V2 is made by seasonic, while the TX650 M is made by CWT.

Thanks, is there any differences in performance-wise?

I see a printed note taped before the powerpoint that says "Silent operation at low to moderate loads. In this mode, the fan will not spin." Is this a recent feature similar on the TX650V3? The serial # on the box is CP-9020039-UK. I see the serial # on the TX650 V3's box is CP-9020038-xx.

Seasonic-built units are vastly superior than those built by CWT.

Agreed. I do think that Seasonic are a more competent OEM than CWT. It's worth noting, though, that corsair will be switching to a brand new OEM for the TX750/850 V3 units - Those will be made by Chicony (Formerly Hipro)

Thanks again, Gabriel and C for your replies. I'm getting real crossed as this is the second PSU I bought for the new build and I keep getting the wrong models. Bugger! I had a further look at AMD's site and they do not list the TX650 CWT models on their approved PSU list.

You don't need to use a PSU that is on that list. Any PSU that can run its rating in spec and has decent build quality will be fine. Most retailers probably don't realise that the TX650M isn't quite as well built as the 650V2, and probably thought they had upgraded you, as the 650M is modular.

The Gila Monster? Nah, more like the Australian Coastal Taipan/Oxyuranus scutellatus

On Topic, I wouldn't worry too much about the PSU. The TX650M is still a decent PSU, and it should do just fine.

Nah... Oxyuranus scutellatus' too lethal and fast. I prefer a slow painful demise
