Title should be self explanatory.

Yes, I've read tons of reviews for both of them out there, must buy the psu tomorrow or at least the day after it.

Price wise at local here the difference is just about 10 to 15 bucks more expensive on X-750's side. No biggie for me.

Dunno why, just have this sudden storm of hesitation and confusion in my head. :screwy:

Should I toss the coin ?

X-750. Hands down. Look at the jonnyguru review.

Avert your eyes! The above shots are too awesome for human eyesight to tolerate! Yes, folks, this here Seasonic platform has decided to out-awesome just about everything I've tested to date. With ripple and noise under 20mV on all main rails from tests two to five, this unit joins the very best of the best for ripple and noise suppression.

Not much to think about Bing. Cost is always dynamic depending on who has it on sale so OW's evaluation here must be flexible. The same with esthethics which is a personal preference. I'd like a pink one OW! :D

Otherwise the first two ratings with OW's test / write-up explanations are what I look for so it's near a 10 rating across the board pending sale prices. I don't see why the X-750 would rate any differently.

Yeah, I am sure you won't regret the X-750, bing. The HX750 is also a good psu, but the X-750 looks to be some real awesomesauce according to the reviews I've read on it. And with only a $10-15 price difference, it's a no-brainer to me. Hell the fan in it probably won't even kick on until you are doing some real work with it.

Bing,

That's a nice looking bag it came in. Can you post a photo or two of it? It looks like denim?

At that shot it looks like denim, but its not, I think the fabric is similiar to those backpacker bag, sort of plastic fabric. Btw, that is the pouch for the cables.

There you go, for your viewing pleasure. :D

Came folded like this in the box.
