Looks like a winner. The things that particularly appeal to me—ball bearing 140mm fan, 900W output, 4x 6+2pin PCIe connectors, Seasonic build, decent price, and a five-year warranty—make it far more attractive than some of Corsair's other new models. Efficiency is ok for the price.

I noticed in this picture:


That this power supply has a United Chemi-Con KZH capacitor.

I believe KZH along with KZJ use the same electrolyte as the KZG, so this capacitor is deemed unreliable and this should be pointed out in the review.

I've not seen this before, usually the brown-sleeved UCC capacitors in the recent PSUs are KY, so people who see the brown-sleeved capacitors with the honeycomb vent should not panic. United Chemi-Con KY are fine, it is only the KZG/KZJ and possibly KZH that are unreliable.

I must correct myself.

KZH is in fact a reliable series from UCC in line with KZE. Nothing to worry about. Looks like an excellent power supply.

Edit: was actually just posting that KZH seems to be held in pretty high regard at Badcaps.

I just noticed that page 2 has the heading: "A Look Inside The PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK II 750W", at least it does for me.

Default TX750 versions

There are 4 versions/generations of the tx750. make sure you request the latest generation 4 PSU. Gen1-3 had problems. Gen 4 is apparently better. You will have PROBLEMS with Generations 1-3. The gen 4 supply is NOT titled "generation 4" on the website. Make sure you request the latest part number (that you can find on their website). But you have to make sure you get it. I bought a generation 3 one (CMPSU-750TXV2), and Corsair did a free RMA with free shipping back to them and sent me generation 4 (as long as you do it within 30 days of purchase). EMAIL YOUR SELLER B4 YOU PURCHASE and make sure they have generation 4 version (CP-9020042-NA)! It is NOT the V2 supply. UPDATE: I just got version 4 (CP-9020042-NA)...the latest one...and guess what? It too is bad!!! Corsair is sending me ANOTHER PSU under RMA. This will be my THIRD ONE NOW. I think the TX line is just simply faulty. Time to discontinue this line Corsair. Type in "tx750 noise" or any variation of the word noise in youtube and you will see all the buzzing, coil whine, and other problems this TX line has.

Actually, there are three generations. The original TX, the TX V2 and now the new one. The original TX750 was made by CWT, the second was a Seasonic, the new one is a Chicony (Hipro). They are all completely different designs internally. Are you saying that you've had coil whine on all of them? If so, are you sure it's not your motherboard or GPU which is causing the PSUs to whine? I've seen that happen before.
