Modulized cable connectors. It can be better if itís with clearly indicate.
Even MB 24/8 Pin cable is also moduliozed. Itís very rare design.
I remember there is only X-SERIES 750W using this.


Take a look inside.(PS:Please donít do it by yourself, due to it will be out of warranty.)
The fan is SANYODENKI 9S1212F404. 12cm dual balls bearing with temperature controller.


A birdís eye view


Internal heatsink is black


The capacitors are solid and Japanese made to enhance AX750W stability and durability.


Double faced PCB design


I guess CORSAIR AX750W and my previous review, Seasonic X-SERIES 750W, should be from same design team.
Many designs and components are similar. However, after checking the detail, the PCB design is some different.
CORSAIR PCB and heatsink are black and heatsink is bigger.
Also PCB some layout is changed. AX750W could be X-SERIES 750W revised version.

I use MB GIGABYTE X58A-UD3R; due to X58 is the most high end Intel platform.
It supports On/Off Charge, USB 3.0/SATA3, Cloud OC and 2oz copper PCB.


The platform is X58A-UD3R with Intel Core i7-950.
The main reason is LGA1366 is the most power consumption platform so far. Itís very suitable for PSU loading test.


System Configuration
CPU: Intel Core i7-950
MB: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R
DRAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT CMG6GX3M3A2000C8
VGA: GIGABYTE GTX460 OC
HD: Intel X25-V 40GB RAID 0
POWER: CORSAIR Gold AX750W
Cooler: Mega Shadow Deluxe Edition
OS: Windows7 Ultimate 64bit


The test below is under default setup and OC CPU to 4140MHz to compare PSU output status in middle and high power consumption modes.

Default Setup
CPU 133.2 X 24 => 3197.7MHz
DARM DDR3 1865.2 CL7 8-7-20 1T
