I retire mine every 4 or 5 years but mainly just because I get the itch to buy something new. My TX750 is still running along fine but its 4+ years old and I'm aching to buy something new. I really want to play around with the new Corsair units and the Corsair Link software. I'm also tempted by those new Antec High Current units because I've always wanted to run a Delta built PSU and admit it would be cool to have a power supply from a line that OK Wolf gave a bunch of 10's to.
So yeah, I replace them fairly often but its more just for fun than necessity.
And the trend continues. Just pulled the trigger on a EVGA G2 750 at Amazon (via the commissioned buying link of course ) for $100 after taxes and Prime shipping. Like I said, I get the itch to buy something new PSU wise every 4 or 5 years and my TX750 is right around there. It wont technically be retired though. Ill drop it into the PC I built for my little boy to play games on and take the PC Power Silencer 500 out of it because the fan is starting to rattle.
