    _____________
    Today we bring you the review of the latest and highly anticipated Corsair PSU; the TX950W. We reviewed many units of this series in the past, such as the TX850W and the TX650W, and they always were able to deliver an awesome price to performance ratio to potential customers. The company claims that the TX950W can deliver best-in-class performance at a very reasonable price.

    Nice review! ;)

    I have a question though (not on particular this review):
    Is a K-type thermocouple expensive?

    Wikipedia:
    They don't give a price though ;|

    Edit:
    Found some, but they are made of all kinds of materials. Which one is best for simple use?

    Hello Bolletje,

    Not really. You could find a relatively good and simple multimeter which comes with a K-type thermocouple for only 20-25 Euro. Just visit an electronics store, they ought to have some simple models. Make sure you buy a branded device.

    Well, I already have a multimeter, and no need of a new one.

    I will do further research :)P) this week. I saw some cables and they were like 2-10 euro.

    Is your multimeter able to take readings from a temperature sensor though? Not all multimeters can do that. Multimeters are usually limited to electrical applications only. You will need one able to take readings from a temperature sensor, which sensor will most probably be included in its package.

    Good point. I think my multimeter doesn't supports it because it's one of the cheapest :p

    You guys are taking the piss. The other sites that review (in this case PSUs) might as well shut down.
    Great review.

    I plan on upgrading to 2X GTX295's in the near future so I'll be needing at least 950Watts. I will probably get a 1KW PSU I think.
