Corsair HX620 vs HX650


Recommended Posts

Hi to all,


I am using Corsair VX550W PSU for 2 years now and all I can say that IT ROCKS!

I've recently changed my chassis and since my PSU is now separated from the motherboard in the means of another chamber (******** P183), I have 3rd Hard drive in the same chamber and PSU. Since this is a mid tower and I don't have much space as in the big tower, I've decided to go with the modular PSU.


I was looking at the HX520W since I think it should be sufficient for my current setup, but not sure if it will be enough if I decided to upgrade my components.


I was looking at HX620W which is a bit too expensive for me, but then I've found out that HX650W is available and is even cheaper than HX620, at least here in Croatia, but I don't get why??? Is HX620W offering something more than HX650 to justify the bigger price?


Explanation and recommendations are highly appreciated.

The HX650 was designed to replace the HX520 and the HX750 was meant to replace the HX620. The HX620/HX520 are now about 3-4 years old and we wanted to upgrade them with better efficiency, a longer warranty, and more power. I can not explain why your reseller is selling the HX620 for more than the HX650, but I suspect it has to do with the initial price they paid for the units.

I just had an HX620W PSU die and get replaced via an RMA with an HX650W. According to what you wrote, it sounds like I was down-graded:(:


Can you please verify this?




LOL, no you were not downgraded. If your 1960s Porsche was RMAed and you got a 2010 BMW, you did not get a downgrade.
