PSU Advice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
So I bought a TX650M about a month ago, and noticed it was clicking on startup/shut down, and before I did any research I submitted a ticket to Corsair asking what it was as it was a brand new unit.
I took to the internet and had a look around and everywhere I went, people said clicking is fine, its a relay switch. So with that it put my mind at rest and I moved on with it.
I got a reply from Corsair yesterday asking for some more details reguarding the click and could I send them a picture of the PSU sticker on the unit, didnt ask to record the click or anything.
So after replying and showing it they have said that the same unit is out of stock but they can replace it with https://www.corsair.com/ww/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/cxm-series-2015-config/p/CP-9020061-UK#tab-overview (CX750M)
Now untill this it was my understanding that the PSU was meant to click, but now im not sure.
So my question(s) here would be:
1: Should I tell them that my research while waiting for an answer from them suggested the click was fine?
2a: Should I just accept the offer, get a replacement and send this one back to them?
2b: If yes to 2a, is the CX750M a decent PSU?

The TXM is a better PSU than the CXM.

 

Since there's nothing wrong with your TX650M you have no reason to replace it.

There are a lot of bad reviews with the cx750, if there is no problem with your psu better not change it to a lower category of psu

As I said that is what I was lead to believe it just confuses me, that this was Corsairs response, surely they know the clicking is normal?

It's normal.  It's the in-rush current by-pass relay.

Basically the tx is a better version rather than the cx because of the quality of capacitors used in the psu
