Hi again everyone.
I fitted the Corsair HX750i on Friday, and have been using it for the last couple of days.
I said I would report back, so here are my impressions of the PSU.
The main components of the system are as follows.
CPU: SkyLake 6700K clocked at 4.6GHz.
Motherboard: Asus Z170 Deluxe
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2x 8GB (16GB) UDIMM clocked at 2800MHz.
Storage: 9X SSDs. 8x SATA and 1X Toshiba OCZ RD400 NVMe 512GB M.2
Graphics: 1x EVGA NVidia GTX1060 SC 6GB GDDR5.
As I said in my previous posts, This PSU is overkill at the moment.
However, the PSU does provide excellent voltage regulation. It’s completely silent, as even at full load, the PSU fan is never required (so far).
It is also very power efficient.
What may surprise you is how power efficient a modern PC is.
Using Corsair’s LINK software, I’m able to monitor and change the settings on the PSU. It is also able to measure how much power is being drawn from the AC power source, and also how much power the PSU is pumping out to the PC, or in fact the power requirements of the PC.
It also provides efficiency figures for the PSU.
Pic1 shows the system at idle.
It shows the PC is using a total of 53W, with the power requirements of the PC at 42W which equals 78% efficiency for the HX750i PSU.
Pic2 shows the requirements with the PC at full load using the AIDA64 system stability test, which is also stressing the GPU and HDDs, as well as the CPU and RAM.
It shows the PC is using a total of 238W, with the power requirements of the PC being 220W, which gives 92% efficiency from the HX750i.
