From the Manufacturer
Based on the award-winning Enthusiast Series TX line, Enthusiast Series Modular PSUs add a modular cabling system for improved installation flexibility. It provides a great combination of exacting performance standards and affordability.
The modular cabling system includes a complete set of flat, detachable cables that allow you to use only the ones you need. This allows you to reduce clutter for a clean-looking system with improved airflow. The attached ATX cable is fully-sleeved for superior protection. And, all cables are extra long to support full-tower PC systems.
80 PLUS Bronze Certification for Smart, Efficient Power Delivery
80 PLUS Bronze is your guarantee that your Enthusiast Series Modular power supply will deliver 85% efficiency or higher at 50% load. Superior efficiency is essential in a high performance power supply — it runs quieter, generates minimal excess heat, and saves you money every month.
Ready to Take the Heat
Enthusiast Series Modular is designed for reliable operation in high-performance PCs where clean, stable power is important. It’s rated for full, continuous power delivery at an ambient temperature of up to 50° Celsius.
Low Noise with Zero RPM Fan Mode
The fan doesn’t even spin under light to medium load – that is, a lot of the time that you use your PC. And when you’re pushing it hard, the Enthusiast Series TX-M varies its fan speed in response to temperature, so the 140mm double ball bearing fan spins only as fast as it needs to. The result is exceptionally low noise levels.
- Complies with the European Union ErP Directive (2009/125/EC) so the power consumption of the whole system, in either standby or off mode, can be less than 1W when used with a properly configured, ErP-compliant motherboard
- 80 PLUS Bronze certified, delivering up to 85% energy efficiency under real-world load conditions
Reliable Power Delivery
- A dedicated single +12V rail offers simple configuration and maximum compatibility with the latest graphics cards and other components
- Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) with PF value of 0.99
- Over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, and short circuit protection provide maximum safety for your critical system components
- High-quality capacitors provide uncompromised performance and reliability
- Safety Approvals: cTUVus, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TÜV, CCC, C-tick
- Conforms to ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 standards, and is backward compatible with the ATX12V 2.2 and ATX12V 2.01 standards

Most computers only consume around 100-150w, and even a high end computer might consume maybe 200w. That's why most OEM computer manufacturers put small 250-350w PSUs in their systems. If you look at online reviews of highly overclocked systems with multiple video cards (SLI/Crossfire) they consume at most about 500-600w. Anandtech (a very trusted hardware review site) in a comparison of the ATI Radeon HD 4890 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 (google it) also did a roundup of other comparable video cards and some SLI/crossfire setups. Their review system was a Core i7 965 @ 3.2Ghz (non-overclocked), 6GB of RAM, and SSD drive, and X58 based motherboard. Idle power consumption ranged from 170-260w, and full load from 260-420w.
The point is you don't need a 1000w PSU even if you have a high-end system. The wattage race is long over. A good PSU from a good PSU manufacturer is all you need. For regular desktop systems, a good choice is Corsair's 400CX or Antec's EA380. If you need a bit more power for an overclocked system, or multiple video cards this PSU is a great choice. Also for consideration in this price/quality range are Antec's EA650, SeaSonic's S12 and M12 550w & 650w versions, and PC Power & Cooling's 650 & 750w versions along with Corasir's own 750w version of this same power supply.
This power supply is also 80 PLUS certified, which means that it maintains at least 80% efficiency across a range of power usage from 20% of it's capacity (~130w) all the way up to it's rated maximum. This is *very* good. Most off-brand PSUs only make about 70-75% efficiency.Read more ›
The environment this was in is knowing for destroying moving parts, devouring motors of all kinds, and generally ruining stuff in a hurry. It's the alkali flats you always see those car commercials filmed in the middle of nowhere, Nevada. Temps soar and the dust is so fine it gets into EVERYTHING. If you run a motor or any kind with a fan, the rule of thumb is to clean or replace the filter daily. It's hot and it's nasty.
The Corsair was literally buried in dust at times, baking in the sun, and it never stopped fanning itself (silently) or providing steady power. And we're talking hellishly dynamic loads here, too. Bass heavy music cranked to 11 will basically give you alternating zero to full loads. I blew up a lesser PSU doing this same thing before finding the Corsair ("melted, then popped" would be more accurate). This thing has gone for 20 hour stretches of this without a whimper. I blow fuses on the amps before this even gets warm.Read more ›

It has very long cables to reach everywhere in my case. I especially like that they are long enough to let me run them with good cable management and don't have to be a spider web strung across the middle of my case, or risk banging into fans if not able to tie down to the sides. The cables are covered in a nice mesh material (common on premium cables). The wires are very stiff (explained in the video), which is a pro and a con, although mostly a pro. They seem very well constructed, but will take some bending to get things to daisy chain (drawback #1). But it is also nice that they hold their position so they don't flop around and get in the way. But might take more work to coax them into the position you want. The flip side of the long cables is that you will have excess cable, and seems like quite a bit (drawback #2). So make sure you have room in your case to nicely tuck bundles of them that you aren't using (see near end of video), otherwise they could get int he way of airflow. I'll take the length any day over having less to work with.
Although it is 650W, that is more about the maximum power it can crank out, but realistically you will end up using a lot less. My Kill-a-Watt meter says that I use 50.2W when on and idle, and spikes 90W during activity.Read more ›
