Corsair TX750M PSU Review

Ripple Measurements

To learn how we measure ripple, please click here.

This table includes the ripple levels we measured on the TX750M's rails. The limits, according to the ATX specification, are 120mV (+12V) and 50mV (5V, 3.3V, and 5VSB).

Ripple suppression at +12V isn't particularly good given today's standards in this category. We'd like to see much lower values (less than 40mV), worst-case.

On the other hand, both minor rails perform significantly better than the +12V rail.

Ripple Oscilloscope Screenshots

The following oscilloscope screenshots illustrate the AC ripple and noise registered on the main rails (+12V, 5V, 3.3V and 5VSB). The bigger the fluctuations on the screen, the bigger the ripple/noise. We set 0.01 V/Div (each vertical division/box equals 0.01V) as the standard for all measurements.

    I have one of the 'sister' versions of this PSU. I like it a lot. My case is all air cooled, so I never hear the fan on the Corsair.

    So I guess this is a "re-release" of the TX-xxxM semi-modular line?

    I have one of these ^ sitting in a box somewhere. Not that bad a unit but I hope they don't go through another "V2" fiasco with thise new line. If memory serves, the last time the issue was attributed to using a newer OEM manufacturer...

    Great review though! Very thorough and well presented :)

    Thanks for the review Aris, it looks like with a few tweaks, this platform could really kill it

    Got a TX-750w 9 years ago.
    Still going great!

    Any chance to review the new CX series released by Corsair recently. Not the M , but the non modular CX.
