    Reccomended PSU?

    And several other factories create the capacitors, bridge rectifiers, chips, MOSFETs, etc. Even further, look at the factories that produce the steel / aluminium, and the plastics for the components. Generally when referring to who created the PSU, it's those who assemble the components together, solder, test it, etc.

    Hung Hua is a PSU factory used for the CX and CXM? Ive never heard this... Care to expand?

    The first review is Vietnamese, not Chinese. Although I can't access the second link, both reviewers are respectable and unbiased. You can use google translate if you can't read their language. Or if you were knowledgeable on the topic of PSUs you can pick out the data from the reviews without reading it. And I see a lot of people having problems with every PSU out there. Doesn't mean anything when you don't know the exact rates. Voltage regulation is pretty poor (864mV deviation on 12V line), which is inevitable given the design. Ripple is very average, with the 5VSB out of spec at high loads. Fan curve doesn't look very quiet. Build quality is a con... don't buy this PSU for a long-term solution. But atleast it includes surge, inrush and over temperature protection.

    The product page has an internal photo. It's looks like one of the better APFC + DF + Group regulated units. Consider for what? What's your system? What is the competition? Where are you located?

    I need help.

    The Pure Power 11 is still uses a forward technology so if your worried about coil whine I'll avoid that one too. They, Corsair CXM and pure power 11, actually perform electrically similarly according to reviews by Aris. It doesn't use a sleeve bearing fan...

    When you can design a power supply yourself. Probably only one person on these forums. "knowledgeable" is when you can completely comprehend an Aris review.

    If this is how you're tiering you've definitely haven't kept consistent to it. Otherwise a third of the units in "S, A+ and A" would be brought down to "B" with the G3. Just to name a couple from the top of my head due to Out-of-spec voltage / ripple or dead from protection testing on one sample... Toughpower iRGB plus, Focus Gold, Antec HCG Gold, Riotoro Enigma...

    Firstly, there's more reviewers that test protections than Aris. EVGA G3 650 @ Toms - 12V OCP / OPP at 143.8% (12V Out of spec), OTP implemented. No damage. EVGA G3 850 @ Toms - OPP at 140.58%, OTP implemented high, but no failure. EVGA G3 1000 @ Toms - OPP At 127.9%, OTP implemented. PSU died in OPP test. EVGA G3 550 @ ComputerBase 12V OCP / OPP at 157%.OTP implemented. No recorded damage. EVGA G3 750 @ eTeknix - OPP at at 151%. No recorded damage. So it seems the only concern with the G3 protections comes from one sample at 1000W. How do you know this wasn't a sample defect? How do you know this isn't isolated to the 1KW model? And here's all the tests I could find on the G2... EVGA G2 550 @ ComputerBase - 12V OCP / OPP at 153. OTP implements though not listed in specs. No recorded damage. The G2's OPP trip points seem equally as high as the G3s, so who's to say the 1KW version won't fail. And we have a limited sample space, which is expected from a 7 year old PSU.

    The only reason you're thinking that, and the only reason the tiers are like that is because people have taken assumptions instead of looking at the tests. Give me one reason why the G2 is better or deserves a higher "tier" than the G3.

    It isn't any worse the G2. The list creators like to exaggerate the protection flaws in the G3, but fail to recognise the G2 has the same flaws, if not worse. Some protection testing on EVGA G2 550

    Unfamiliar sound coming from PSU

    Make sure the fan isn't hitting against the fan grill. You may be able to feel it vibrate. This is a common issue where the grills are collapsed inward during shipping. You could pry away the PSU fan grill. Simply mounting the PSU sucking air from above can also fix the issue.
  12. My apologies for being bitter. Didn't realise this thread was from a couple years ago.
  13. Evidence? Both use rifle bearing. Both are rated Lambda A-, besides the GW version of CX450 which is louder at Lambda S+.

    Don't judge by brand. Especially when they're using a different OEM than usual. A video is useless, not results. There is no methodology or hard figures, therefore impossible to compare to other PSUs. When I turn my headphones down that EVGA GD is pretty darn quiet

    Could you please link the noise tests for the EVGA GD?

    Probably better protections, tighter voltage regulation, lower inrush current. Both values are superb, and negligible from eachother, but it goes to prove the G3 isn't any worse. Oh and Aris' G2 safely passed the OPP test... No. There was no protection test by Aris back then. But we do know the OCP trigger points for the 550 G2 12V, 5V and 3.3V are 153%, 173% and 173% respectively... And where's the OTP?! Also, only one of Aris' G3s died during OPP testing (the 1KW unit). The other two (550 and 650w) survived.

    No, it's not worse at all. It's better. People see there's protection issues in the G3 but too naive to find the same issues, if not worse, are present with the G2.

    Yeah, probably the old model with 3 years warranty. Better avoid. The Leadex Silver is also very good for the price, along with the Pure Power 11.

    The Antec EA550G is pretty good, if it's the newer model. You need to be careful with those as you may actually be buying the older, obsolete model. Could you provide a link where you're buying from?
  21. If it was as simple as that reviewer's wouldn't be doing complex teardowns and extensive testing. Don't trust everything you see on the internet, even if it's someone you think's reputable. He was mistaken with an older model with a similar name.
  22. Double Forward? Comparable to CXM? Where did you find that out? Last I checked there weren't any reviews or internal shots.

    1. Noise levels aren't the same. Corsair CX550 is Lambda-A, Corsair TXM is Lambda-S++ 2. CX is dual sourced by CWT and Great Wall. TXM is just Great Wall. 3. If you know the quality is different, why say they're the same?!

    Because there would be so much current going through the one cable / PSU side connector. https://knowledge.seasonic.com/article/8-installation-remark-for-high-power-consumption-graphics-cards Seasonic doesn’t say you “can’t” use the single cable, they just recommend using seperate. This should be the same for every manufacturer. If this is an issue to anyone, there are four or five spare PCIe ports on the PSU... just buy another cable, or ask Seasonic for one.
