This is what I'm considering:
GREEN = already owned
Red = comments / questions

CPU
i7-9700K
(8 cores makes sense for future proofing, don't need HT for flight sims.)
H/S
Noctua NH-D15
GPU
EVGA GTX 1080Ti FTW3
RAM
G.Skill Trident Z 32GB (2x16) 3200MHz CL14-14-14-34
G.Skill Ripjaws V Z 32GB (2x16) 3200MHz CL14-14-14-34
(Both are Samsung B-Die so what's the difference???)

M/B
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Elite
(Same VRM as the Pro or Ultra - can't see how basic OCing will be much better???)
Z370???
Storage
2X Samsung 860 Evo 500GB (OS + FS)
PSU
Corsair TX750
Corsair RM750x
Seasonic Focus Gold 750
Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 750
(As far as I can tell there's no difference in each product line other than one is semi modular???)
Case
Fractal Design Meshify C
Full tower high airflow (particularly with a large air CPU cooler)???
Display
Acer Predator XB271HU 27" GSync IPS
Controllers
Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS
CH Rudder Pedals
TrackIR

The Corsair RMx is a Tier 1 (Highest Quality PSUs). Corsair TX, Seasonic Focus and Focus Plus are Tier 2 (High Quality (less than Tier 1)). I have a Seasonic X-850, run 24/7, and i sleep very well.

Q) Why is the Corsair TX less quality than the RMx when the only difference seems to be that the main power cable is not modular?
Q) What makes the Corsair RMx "better" than the Seasonic Focus? In reviews the Sesonic Focus often come out on top (in the end I'll probably just go for the best deal but just wondering).

If you don't mind waiting a bit, this rumor could be interesting. Maybe saving some money...

The Corsair TX has a 5 years warranty, the RMx 10 years. The RMx has 100% Japanese 105°C capacitors (high quality), the TX not. The TX is a bronze certified efficiency, he will generate more heat and his components will degrade faster. The TX platform (3.3v rail transient response is not good and the ripple at +12v is a little high) is not as good as the RMx platform.
This is the TX-M, not the TX: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...u,5062-11.html

The Seasonic (Focus 7 years warranty, Focus Plus 10 years) are very good (Tier 2) for their price, but not a top end like the RMx (Tier 1). The mid-range platform of the Focus has some weakness. The 3.3v transient response, the 5vsb rail has a 3% deviation (could be better), the hold-on time is a little high. Because of his compact size, the Focus use a 120mm fan that spins faster, noisier than a 135-140mm.

A weak PSU is like a Porsche on 195er Winter tyres and 80* fuel only. It won't serve you nice.

You are generous Bit, the TX is not even a Porsche, it's a Dodge...

Again, and again. I will repeat this every time. Don't buy a decent PSU, but instead buy an excellent PSU. If you do that it will, most likely, carry you through your next two or three builds. From that perspective it will actually be cheaper than buying three 'decent' PSU's. A cheap CPU or GPU has never destroyed an entire computer, a cheap PSU has, can and will.

two or three !!??




purchased early 2015: 2600k-->6700k-->7700k-->8700k


Built #4 and still going strong, tho..its only 4 years old this coming Xmas


It should last 6-8 years and should be replaced in the 8th-10th year or when it doesnt hold the power anymore ( 10 year warranty ).


Yeah, never ever skip the PSU.
