    I see that the Corsair HX750 is the hot new item. Also, what is the HX750i, and why is it so much more expensive?

    Thanks for the help, Jim
    The HXi series are high end spec PSUs for the latest systems and will run quiet and reliably so would typically be used in gaming rigs that are often overclocked and where rock steady stability is required. I've found the CS or CX series are perfectly adequate for my needs.

    Hi gang, The TX750 I mentioned is the one that is suspect. I ordered a new power supply from NewEgg. It's a CORSAIR RM Series RM1000. The machine is an I7 with 16GB memory so the 1000 watt PS won't hurt. It'll take a week to get here but I have my other computer to use in the meanwhile. Thanks for the help, Jim

    Thanks jds63.

    Phil, I missed your post earlier and I already placed my order. What do you think of the RM series that I bought? Thanks, Jim

    Great choice! These RM series are a bit more expensive than the CX but give near silent running and are very stable.

    Thanks. I'm glad to know that. I knew that I wanted more power and modular. Too many wires were blocking my air flow. I don't want to mark it solved till it's in. Thanks, Jim

    Your Welcome. Even though already purchased did you really need a 1000W PSU, might be a bit overkill ? Regardless of it being a good PSU, do you have a lot of hardware and graphics cards that require a lot of power or plan on upgrading. I have a 750W, does fine for me see in my specs what else i have, that is a bit more then i need.

    Thanks jds63, I figured that if I blew up a 750, I needed 1000. I am participating in a research program from Stanford University called Folding @ Home
    It runs my machines at full tilt all night long, or whenever I'm not using them. I've got extra fans etc. but you know... If some is good, more is better.

    P.S. Another factor was the modular aspect. With my old PSU I had too many wires hanging around, that I wasn't using, hurting my air flow. This unit was one of the lowest priced units with full modular.

    Do not think your PSU died because it was not higher then 750W. if do not have sufficient power to run hardware, hardware will not run
    ( e.g. Graphics card requirements) . Plenty of Full modular less wattage PSU's, mine for one is full modular and 750W. All i am saying is probably do not require all that wattage and spending extra money for it.
