Thats another very good PSU. Enhance OEM, very stable and reliable.

My 750 is going strong after almost 2 years now.

I love my HX750, But have been eying up the AX750 with dual 12v 8/4pin connecters its better suited for future proofing.
the one you got is rad too(i don't need that much juice).

You may have bought your PSU already, but since I wanted to create a thread with the same exact title, I'll reply here...

I have both. The HX850W was installed in a HAF932 Adv., powering my 4p rig (see sig below, The Four Horsemen). The rig pulls from the UPS ~480W under full folding load. Fan ran at full speed, cooling the components.

I replaced the HX850W last week with an AX750W, for efficiency. Under the same load, the AX pulls ~440W from the same UPS. The kicker? The fan does not even budge... it's barely passing the 50% load, and since it's cool in the garage (where the rig resides - 14c at the moment), the PSU internal temp does not reach the threshold that starts the fan...

Better pick up some more of those AX750s! Even with shipping they are worth it for client builds if you ask me.

Remember that Corsair box you showed me in your garage? I have a full one coming my way.
