  1. I will not argue more with you because that sentence gives a clue that you don't have a clear view on how things work. I will just give the following definitions in simple words. Efficiency: The transformer efficiency is defined as the ratio of output power (primary voltage) to input power (from socket). Efficiency is varying based on load. Voltage Regulation: The voltage regulation of transformer is defined as the change in secondary terminal voltage (V2) from no-load to full load at constant primary voltage and temperature. So by combining those two definitions you can see how things work.
  2. With some basic knowledge on electronics field and how circuits work you can easily find out the relevance between those things. Also by insisting so much that everything else is just shit and asking people "WHere did you get that shit?!" doesn't mean you are right especially when you don't know what knowledge and experience the person you are arguing with has in that field. I agree that it is old, but it is still better than many of "new" PSUs out there. Of course there are may options out there and perhaps better VFM but I can't talk about something that I have not personally tested or seen in action. Anyone can disagree, but that doesn't mean I am wrong and they are right. I have tested with some modern components and it did a great job. So you doubt because you haven't tried. And that is ok.
  3. Efficiency is about loss. But it is important for keeping voltage at a stable level even at high loads. Let me strongly disagree with that. I have personal experience with XFX 550W Bronze and it has good protection and it is fairly quite even at 75% load. Also the Gold one is good and stable as I heard from a friend's experience.
  4. As some people already said, a power supply is not all about Watts. Efficiency is what it matters the most, as well as the +12V rail in this specific question about a GPU. The PSU you have only has 19A on its +12V rail which is too low for a 650W PSU. GPUs take voltage from that rail. RX580 requires at least 19A so its not a good idea to keep that PSU and you should also consider that CPU takes voltage almost exclusively from 12V rail too. In other words I wouldn't even hope that your system could work well with that PSU. EVGA 550W GQ is a good choice. If a full wired PSU is not a problem for you, I would highly recommend XFX 550W TS as it is a good and cheap VFM choice.
  5. I know but it is a good move. I don't feel sorry for Steam
  6. I still have epic launcher. As some of you already said, Epic is giving some decent games for free. On top of that we shouldn't feel sorry about valve. Everyone knows that Steam is kind of a monopoly for many years now and also keeps a big percentage of the earnings for each game. So I can only agree with the decision of a game development studio to leave Steam and go to Epic store. It is all about making the best choice for your company/studio. Epic did well on promoting its store and I believe that it will do even better in order to compete with steam and persuade more developers to deploy their games there.
  7. That thing about CAM software is a little confusing. Some people say it is fine and others that it has some issues. I don't really know what to believe haha.
  8. Actually, X62 is not 360mm. It is 280mm but again it will provide some better cooling i guess. I am planning to overclock in the near future so I want cooling to be sufficient for that.
  9. Mostly for beauty. Also emptying some space will make my build look "cleaner".
  10. It is indeed a good cooler but I wish to go to an AIO water cooling option.
  11. I like that design too. And yes I know I can only place it in the front of the case.
  12. Hello guys, I want your opinions, based on pros & cons, on which of the following AIO coolers I should buy for my system build. I am considering these 3 AIO coolers: 1) Corsair H115i Pro RGB 2) NZXT Kraken X62 3) Deepcool Captain 360 EX White RGB My system Build: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x Motherboard: Asus Prime X470 Pro RAM: 2 x HyperX Predator 8GB DDR4-2666MHz GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX1060 6GB OC Windforce Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400 TG Cooling: 2 x SCYTHE SLIP STREAM 120MM CASE FAN, 2 x Phanteks PH-F120SP Black Storage: 1 x Samsung 960 Evo M.2, 1 x SSD CRUCIAL MX500 500GB, 1 x HDD SEAGATE BARRACUDA 2TB PSU: Seasonic Focus 850W Platinum Also if you have any other suggestions with price under 225$, you are welcome to write it in your comments. Thanks
