I would go with the absolute best ax 750 and its fully modular!:clap:

I don't know where you are looking to buy the PSUs but Newegg.ca has the HX850 for $10 less, while BestDirect has the AX750 for 10 bucks less. the AX series is completely modular, is 80+ GOLD certified, while the HX is partly modular and is 80+ SILVER certified, but it is has (6) 6+2 PCI-E connectors vs. (4) on the AX750. The HX850 also has a higher customer rating vs the AX750, on Newegg.

If you see yourself using the extra 100W, the HX provides, then the choice is simple.

If you are interested in sleeving your cables in the future. I would suggest getting the Fully Modular AX750 since you wont void your warranty by sleeving.

I would go with the HX850.

If you are sleeving, go with the AX750. If efficiency is what you care about the most, the HX850 in some cases be gold+ capable depending on the luck of the draw so I wouldn't base your choice on just efficiency but rather how much power you think you'll need in the future. You can't really choose wrong with either one.

Why would anyone want to sleeve the cables on the unit anyway? They're all black already.

Both are great and you wouldn't be going wrong with either. Ultimately it comes down to whether you would prefer full modular and slightly higher efficiency, or semi-modular and an extra 100w.

Well the cables are not sleeved individually rather just as a bunch together.
instead of just one huge sleeve on the 24pin. You can sleeve each individual cable.

It looks a lot better when cables are sleeved individually, at least imo and I'm sure a lot of people will agree.

I had the HX850 and the fan was audibly loud so I took it back for an AX750 which is silent even powering a 6990. I'd take AX series any day over TX.
