I got this PSU at FRy's a week ago for $50 refurbished while my other one was sent for RMA.

Summary
What we have here today, for most of us enthusiasts, is a decent performing 650 watt unit with a 750 watt number on the side. But this unit is not targeted at us enthusiasts, it's aimed at the budget crowd. For those folks, it's a perfectly decent unit and better quality than most of the units it competes against. And let's be honest - you can get the full 750 watts out of it over the long haul if you're careful about thermal management. However, the competition in the 650-750 watt market is so strong that Corsair just can't quite hold on to the ball this time. They almost pull it off, even with all that Rosewill competition, and the presence of a rebate definitely helps, but that Thermaltake... man. That bad boy is a problem that just rips the power cord right out of this unit's hands and whups it with it.
I honestly think you're better off as a consumer if you skip this one and go up another ten bucks to the CS series. Those units actually have a chance against that Thermaltake, are similarly marketed and rated, and they're not too much more cash. I've actually got a CS850M here for load testing... give me three weeks or so, and we'll see how that one comes out. I liked my CS550M enough to keep using it, so I'm hoping for more of the same with some extra power. But this unit? I'd pass. It's not bad at all, in fact it's very good for what it is... it's just not that competitive at this point in time.
The Good:
very good voltage regulation
excellent ripple control
semi-modular
affordable
The Bad:
some CWT build quality blunders
The Mediocre:
doesn't like heat
a few so-so capacitors

I hope I'm wrong, Yeah, looking at the pictures, but the the UPC #843591030755
Model #CP-9020061-NA goes back to the green trim.

Might want to call Fry's and Corsair to be sure. Has to be about 10 different Corsair 750w power supplies!

Maybe somebody that bought one could tells us, or I'd call Fry's and find out.
