PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The native cables terminate in a 20/24-pin ATX connector and a 4+4-pin connector to support most modern enthusiast boards.




Unlike the sleeved native cables, the modular cables are configures as flat ribbon cables that are very flexible and should be easily routed in a chassis while minimizing airflow restriction. These cables are of generous length and provide a huge number of possible configurations. Another nice feature of this cable set is the modular floppy connectors, preventing the user from having to stash the unused connectors, as well as being able to add a floppy connector anywhere along a 4-pin peripheral cable.



To round out the accessories, Corsair includes a generous supply of black zip ties, some black mounting screws and a metallic case badge. So far, so good. Let's get right to the testing phase and see how the 750HX does.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



For this review, Mr. Bones has chosen the following components:

  • MSI DKA790GX Platinum motherboard

  • AMD Phenom 9950 BLACK EDITION Agena 2.6GHz 140W CPU

  • OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) OCZ2F10662GK RAM

  • EVGA 8800 GTS 640MB graphics card

  • Western Digital WD3200 hard drive

  • Samsung SH-S203N DVD writer


Mr. Bones, while being very vain and shallow, has unimpeachable integrity and will be overseeing testing. Let's proceed.


Testing consisted of monitoring voltages from the +3.3V, +5V, and +12V rails while the system was at idle, and during multiple passes of OCCT on both cores while running loops of 3Dmark05. Voltages were monitored with a digital multimeter. Over several days of testing, including overclocks exceeding 22%, rails were rock stable and not one power issue reared its ugly head.


The results are as follows:



The results were excellent and unsurprising, given the specifications. The measured voltages were very close to their respective targets and there was very little ripple on any of the rails. The fan was essentially silent throughout the several days of testing and, as one would expect from a PSU with this kind of efficiency, the Corsair CMPSU-750HX stayed very cool as well.
