Closer Look :
Outside of the bag the Corsair TX750W is finished in a slightly textured matte black paint finish which does have its advantages - no messy finger prints! Following on from the packaging the main theme colors are once again black and orange.
The rear side of the power supply showing the honeycombed air exhaust grill, IEC mains input and a rather small mains on/off switch, which are always difficult to find when reaching from the front of the computer. The front of the power supply doesn't have much to see. I wonder why can't the cables be sleeved all the way into the power supply, it looks much more professional that way.
Identical labels on both sides.
Specification label on the top and an external view of the large 140mm black seven bladed fan and black grill on the underside.
Very difficult, if not impossible, to get a neat picture of all the cables. All of the connectors types and quantities you are ever likely to need but cable management will need some work.
The large 140mm fan is a GP D14BH-12 (12VDC 0.7A) by Yate Loon Electronics. If you look closely, you will see that Corsair has fitted a clear plastic baffle covering almost fifty percent of the fan - more on this later. The internal layout is tidy with some room to spare. Enough room perhaps, and in the right place, for a modular version of the TX750W?
All the capacitors that I could identify are of Japanese manufacture and have the more acceptable 105°C temperature rating. The board is manufactured by CWT Co Ltd. All coils are sleeved and silicone rubber sealant, or some similar material, has been used at various points on the printed circuit board to help secure components and possibly help prevent component oscillation and that irritating buzzing noise that some power supplies emit as they age.
The Corsair TX750W has the look of a quality made power supply using quality components. Let's see how it performs.
