    There's no point what so ever exchanging a PSU so that you get ATX 2.3 instead of 2.2

    The differences are:

    ATX 2.2 specifies a PSU should be a minimum of 80% efficient at any load, where as ATX 2.2 states 75%. The TX650 is already at least 80% efficient across the whole load range, so it's irrelevant.

    ATX 2.3 reduces the minimum load requirements on the 4/8 pin CPU power plug. In particularly high wattage 2.2 supplies coupled with CPU's that use next to no power in initial boot up, a failiure of the PSU to start was possible. ATX 2.3 reduces the minimum to reduce the occurance of this issue. This was only usually with PSU's of 1KW+, and if your Corsair TX powers on your PC, then again, it's irrelevant.

    It's not worth paying attention to ATX versions unless the major version number changes, ie from 2.3 to eg 3.1. Minor revisions are trivial in nature. ||||For example, version 2.2 changes were simply "Higher quality connectors for the ATX 24 Pin connector". These connections were perfectly fine in version 2.1, but was changed to accomodate future boards and high end server boards/skulltrail. To be honest the connectors on 2.1 are still fine for those purposes, more than fine infact.

    Just for referance, one large 12V rail is generally much better than several smaller rails. Whebn limited to smaller rails, some high draw devices can be starved of power. For example you have a PSU capable of giving 50A on 12V. This is split into 2x 25A. A GFX card is inserted with a 27A peak (ie it draws that for a split second before droping to a normal 18A). Your 2 rail PSU will latch and turn off due to over current. If it were a single 50A, you would have been fine.

    EPS is a standard that means the PSU is "Entry level server" ready, IE it has an 8pin CPU power plug as standard. If your board only has a 4 pin, the standard is irrelevant to you. I believe the TX does have an 8pin. If using the HX620, etc, Corsair will gladly post you a replacement modular cable with an 8 pin connector on it. EPS spec has nothing to do with the PSU's innards, it's purely superficial.

    Hi all,

    I want to say this post did the trick for me.
    I had screeching noise from my PSU when I tried to install applications synchronized with HDD access.
    It would continue to screech and my whole system would shut down and reboot even before installation completes.
    After disabling C1E in bios, I tried installing the problematic programs again and this time installation completes without any screeching or whining from the PSU.
    I'm not sure why C1E makes a difference but I'm glad i read this post. Thank you guys.

    My system:
    Chassis: Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced
    PSU: OCZ 850W
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX460
    CPU: Intel i7 930
    HDD: Western Digital 1TB
    MB: Asus P6X58D-E
    Memory: Kingston 1066 4G
    OS: Win 7 ultimate 64-bit

    use windows balanced power saving profile from within win7 power saving options and disable c1e in the bios,it will throttle the cpu at idle with no noise if you set it up this way,for xp look in power options and choose minimum hardware for the same thing
