Corsair TX650

The last Corsair PSU in this review belongs to the TX series which is targeted at gamers and computer enthusiasts.

The TX650’s product box is the same size as those of the GS series but painted black and yellow. The packaging is individual for each PSU model.

The box contains the same stuff as included with the other Corsair PSUs in this review.

Exterior Design

The TX650 looks more conservative than the GS series. It lacks any highlighting or ornamental plastic inserts. It’s similar to the GS series in one way, though. The top panel is fastened with hex-head screws.

The back panel is standard with a mains connector, an On/Off switch and a plaque with the PSU’s name.

Circuit Design

We can see the familiar CWT PUQ (B) platform inside. It is used in Chieftec’s Nitro II 85+ and Corsair’s GS.

So, the functionality includes active PFC and dedicated voltage regulation based on DC-DC converters.

The Dc-DC converter card still doesn’t look neat. It is not as sloppy as in the GS800, though.

The Corsair TX650 has SAMXON capacitors at its output.

Cables and Connectors

The Corsair TX650 is equipped with the following cables and connectors:

  • One mainboard cable with a 20+4-pin connector (57 cm)
  • One CPU cable with a 4+4-pin connector (65 cm)
  • Two graphics card cables with one 6+2-pin connector on each (60 cm)
  • Two cables with four PATA power connectors (43+10+10+10 cm)
  • Two cables with four SATA power connectors (40+10+10+10 cm)

The PSU is shipped with two 10cm adapters from a PATA power connector to a floppy-drive plug. The cables are identical to those of the Corsair GS700 except that the floppy-drive plugs are connected via the adapters.
