RM750 or older AX760

Tomorrow is finally the day that I receive the last component for my new PC. The last component except the PSU that is... I am still waiting for the RM750 (2019 model) that I ordered. The retailer keeps changing the predicted delivery date, and I am not hopeful that I will get it shipped any time soon.

 

In my current PC I use an AX760 from 2016. I wonder if it would be better to install that one in the new PC, or wait for the RM750?

 

The new PC will run 5600X with a 1070. I plan to upgrade the GPU in a year or so.

 

The AX760 has been outputting about 200-300 W one or two hours a day for the last 4.5 years, if that is an indicator of wear.

 

Is the AX760 better than the RM750 despite its age? Do I risk anything using it with more modern components?

Hi Casual,

 

You should have no issues if your voltages are in line with our specifications. A PSU should be within (+) or (-) 5%, use a multi meter to check the voltage outputs 3.3V, 5V, 12V. AX series is platinum efficiency which is more efficient than the RM gold rated.

The new RM750 (2019) is not such a bad unit. I have the RM650 and I have found it to be excellent for the reasonable price.
