I have a CX750M in my pc right now and I have heard very mixed feedback on how good it is. I heard that it was only the green ones that were horrible, and that the grey ones were fine, but I also heard that they are all bad. So should I sell the one I have now and go for something better or keep it because it is good enough?

If that's your build, https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Sarcasticat727/saved/#view=4cQXP6, it's more than fine. :)

No mine is the potato sandwich. That one is my brothers.

potato sandwich.

LOL!

Yes, but the PSU is the Corsair CX750M, right?

Yep. And the reason I call it that is because a potato sandwich is much better than a potato but not quite a French fry.

Depends on if it has issues or not.

If it's still OK, stick with it.

Sarcasticat727 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

no issues so far and I have been using it for about 1 and a half years now.

Then, just stick with it

(as long as you aren't pushing the guts out of it, you should be fine)

I have a CX600M with a green label, bought it back in 2014 and is still working. They're not the best units but they're fine for what they are.

The green lable ones are bad if you try to push it anywhere near its max the gray ones are acceptable quality.

That's not a group regulated unit, like the CX430M, CX500M, CX600M.

And voltages and ripples are decent even at it's full power.
