Above you can see Corsair's claim for efficiency and noise levels. The TX750W efficiency peak is at around 50% load. For those of you who are running lean on wattage (for example 450 watts PSU on a system that could use 750Watts PSU) on your present PSU means you’re probably producing an excessive amount of heat and throwing efficiency out the window. It is more likely that when you are starving your entire system or maybe just one of its components the affects result in corruption of the disk drive or screen refreshes or less CPU cycles. Also with the PSU running at its peak more than 100% of time, it is producing a considerable amount of heat in comparison to running the PSU with more wattage. With a PSU having a useful life of hour’s equivalent to roughly 3+ years, the users who leave their rigs running 24/7, may want to consider replacing the PSU with a newer one that has the ability to dish out the power demands they need. Technicians who deal with repairing PCs everyday will agree that a PSU can be seen as ticking time bomb, since when PSU finally quits, the result is more often catastrophic. Since the PSU is connected to peripherals inside the case, it can destroy some or all (hard drive, processor, mother board), resulting in a significant cost for repairing their system. With PSU life being longer then most gamers keep a rig, they usually don’t consider what life is left on their PSU, unless they are transferring the same PSU from one rig to the next. Those who over-clock their rigs strain the PSU resulting in burning through the useful life a PSU faster so transferring the PSU to the next rig is very risky. There are users out there who are still using PCs that they purchased over 4+ years ago who should also really consider replacing their PSU as these users are likely the ones who store family photos and financial records, who may not have backed up their data. Replacing the PSU now may cost just $80~$120, where replacing peripherals, lost hard drive data that was never backed up may be more costly or priceless to replace.

The TX750W does not come up short on power cables for your peripherals. There are four PCI-e cables alone for those who are looking to hooking up multiple video cards, should get some high-end gamers attention out there. The 24 pin connection to the motherboard has the ability to be a 20 ping connector by simply snapping off the four pins set from one side. The numerous other power cables for SATA, and Molex plugs for ROM drives and IDE drives provides the user with plenty of options. Also the cables are all wrapped in mesh to assist with airflow through your system and assist with the clean look. The length of all the power cables were significant enough to reach all the peripherals in our NZXT case with ease.
