This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Another decently discounted LTT A-tier PSU. Amazon have it marked down from £100 but seems to be priced around £112 from other retailers.

My understanding is the RMx series is better built than the RM series and includes the same 10 year warranty from Corsair

Looks to be available from Ebuyer for the same price.

Still expensive. You can get a sea sonic one for much cheaper.

The Seasonic equivalent is the Focus series and I can't find a 750W gold-rated one for less than around 110 quid online (cheapest is CCL at £107).

Currys have one for 79.99 and that's just a quick look.

I've just looked and there is not?

Link? The only 750W PSU I can see on the Curry's website for £79.99 is the Corsair TXM series one which isn't fully modular. The Seasonic ones are all more expensive than this for the same or better spec.

Of course you can get cheaper if you're not going for an equivalent.

I believe that's a CWT PSU.

Like I said, that's the TXM series PSU, it's not fully modular. It's up for sale on Amazon at the same price.

That one's already up as a deal (I posted it), this is the RMx series version which is supposedly better manufactured.

I'm not saying this is a phenomenal deal, it's a decent reduction in price for this specific PSU or its equivalents for those who might be interested.

The RM750 you show is not the same as the RM750X that this deal is for. You seem very determined to discredit this deal, with nothing to backup what you say.

This is better than the Seasonic focus+ that would be in the similar price bracket, not sure why everybody praises seasonic when generally they are outclassed at each price point, but hey PC master race loves them as they used to be ahead 10 years ago.
I was going to buy the "Seasonic Focus GX 750", had it in my basket for weeks when choosing components for my new build, but when the RM750 came up for £85 I thought that's good enough for me and bought it.
Great power supply, installed couple of them in recent builds at work. But be aware, CPU/ATX and GPU cables are terrible, there's awful lot of unnecessary long shrink around on the cable ends which makes them look terrible and almost impossible to bend. If you are up to aesthetics. and not getting sleeved cabling avoid this.

Cables in the RM750 are a lot better than the RM750x. There's no capacitors in the RM750 cables and they're the flat type like in Seasonic PSUs. Makes them much easier to route.
Huh. Bought this for 79.99 from amazon a few weeks ago I believe. Returned as it was overkill and I just ordered as I thought it was a great deal even though you really don’t need a PSU this expensive. Got a 40 quid aerocool 700w bronze instead.

Have fun slowly killing your components
These are very good PSU’s.

I bought the 850w version of this a few weeks back for my old Dell Optiplex 790 MT.

This was just one element of a long and expensive couple of weeks upgrading my PC

Just before Christmas I happened to come across a random YouTube video of a guy called Mr. Steele, flying a drone around an old derelict building.... in and out of windows, up flights of stairs, doing various tricks along the way.

I thought to myself, “that looks cool, I’d like to try that!”...... and so my journey of discovery (and expense!) began!

Looked into drone simulators as I had no drone flying experience and knew I was bound to crash it immediately if I went out and bought one, so ended up purchasing a Jumper T16 Pro remote controller (highly recommended by the way, as it can be used for real drones and the simulators) and also buying a copy of “Velocidrone” drone sim software.

Unfortunately it ran like a pig on my Optiplex

“Guess I need a better graphics card” I thought to myself..... so spent some more time looking for low-cost, mid-range graphics cards, and eventually settled on an ASUS AMD RX580 8GB after seeing a good deal on eBay for £75.

It eventually arrived, and I was about to plug it in when I thought, “hold on a minute, this needs some kind of separate power connector to go into it?”

Did a bit more research online, and it turns out I need a newer, better PSU to power this thing!

More and more research, and eventually settled on the Corsair RM850x as it’s more than powerful enough and crucially it delivers 150w across the 3.3v and 5v rails.... unnecessary for most modern motherboards, but in the case of my Dell Optiplex it was needed to stop the motherboard getting damaged.

The higher power Corsair RMX PSU’s are one of the very few modern PSU’s that offer this.... most only deliver 130w across the 3.3v and 5v rails.

Anyway got the PSU...... turns out it’s too long for my case

After a couple more hours research, I’m now “modding” my case by cutting various bits of plastic off the inside of the case with a dremel.

Powered it all up and fired up Velocidrone. Unfortunately it kept stuttering, so after more research I discovered that my CPU (i3 2100) was causing a major bottleneck.

So found a cheap i7 2600 on eBay and whacked that in.

The stuttering stopped but the pc kept shutting down.

After more research it turns out the new CPU was overheating and shutting down.

Someone on a forum asked what thermal paste I was using..... huh?

More research and I purchased some MX4 thermal paste.

Temps came down a tad, but still in the 80’s when running the sim.... not good.

Turns out my CPU cooler was inadequate.

Bought a cooler...... doesn’t did the sell mother board which I discover uses a 4-wire, 5-pin connector.... not standard

Send that back to Amazon and end up purchasing a thicker 32mm Dell heatsink.

Finally.... after 2 weeks of faffing around and around £400 spent, I can finally play my £20 drone simulator that I’ll probably get bored of in a couple of weeks!!

Yeah because 5% efficiency and 50w less is is gonna kill the components that I have that doesn’t even hit 500w. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not blast 80 quid on a PSU just because it’s a good name.

So you didn't end up needing it, and went with something else, OK fair enough. I don't see the logic of you coming in here and trying to claim nobody needs this though which you did with:

There are people who have systems with enough draw that need a 750W PSU or might later with upgrades, or just want a comfortable wattage buffer, and want something that's been highly reviewed.

Yes, it has gone cheaper in the past, and yes it will likely go cheaper again in the future. For someone looking to buy and build now though with a mind to buy a PSU with specs like this it might be what they're looking for.

Well when the PSU goes bang and takes everything with it or it slowly kills off the components due to high ripple then I bet you will be really happy you saved that money. Also very few people need a 750w PSU but there is much better cheaper and lower wattage PSU you can get but you got a cheap bad one as I assume it was the Aerocool integrator which I wouldn't trust to power even a office PC let alone anything that needs anywhere near 700w.
