    9 out of 10 times, when the PSU works, the customer doesn't leave a review.

    Stock fan setup is the best setup without removing the front panel or filter, according to GamersNexus

    MrBrightSyde reacted to Juular in [psucultists] PSU Tier List   
    I'll contact them about that.
    It has OCP on minor rails, that's enough. A requirement for OCP on all rails in the methodology was a mistake, fixed.
    Reivews for TPU and THW are written by the same man, Aris Mpitzopoulos.
    It's the same thing, High Power is retail brand of Sirtec and Sirfa is IIRC the name of their factory.
    So in one review he confirmed OTP while in another he didn't, which indicates that either it's set higher than 200°C at which point it isn't very useful anyway even if present or there are some problems with it at least on some batches, but since we don't have any more information about it sadly, we would rather treat it as it doesn't have OTP.

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from Yaxir in Is corsair TX-550M enough for my PC's power needs ?   
    An Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) is not the same as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). The AVR makes sure a constant voltage level is delivered. A UPS provides emergency power to a load when the input power source fails. So a UPS will help with your frequent power outages.

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from Mateyyy in is the power supply i bought good?   
    You are telling the guy who works with PSUs for a living and is the head of Corsair's Director of R&D to read the reviews.
     
    Also, I read the reviews, none with any technical analysis, just "it works quietly"
     
    Edit: and Aris did a review like jonny linked earlier. It's a budget power supply for a budget build, not something for higher-end builds.

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from Smokingpc in What’s considered as a good power supply?   
    What is your budget on the PSU? Personally, I would get something like the Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro or NeoEco Gold M or NeoECO Zen, all should be around $85-90 for 550w/650w

    MrBrightSyde reacted to Fasauceome in Is This PSU Compatible With My PC?   
    Pretty good deal tbh, but they don't list the motherboard or power supply model and don't have any photos of of the internals. All you need for compatibility is the 24pin and 4/8pin CPU power. Can you identify the model of the motherboard, or share a photo?

    Well, OP, you got another option now. There's the Lian Li Lancool II Mesh that released today for $90+$11 shipping (so $101) on Newegg and it's one of the best overall airflow cases out there.
     
    Edit: Forgot OP was from Singapore, but still, for those reading this, the Lancool II Mesh is a good option to consider now.

    Depends on the budget. Antec NeoECO Zen 500w is $76 and is the cheapest one I would recommend for a mid-range and that's because that's the only PSU in stock right now. All the budget 80+ Bronze PSUs are gone and the 80+ whites that are available for cheaper than the NeoECO Zen are trash.

    Yeah, basically, if you already have some case fans lying around, the Meshify C would be a good option, but if you are starting from scratch, I would get a Pure Base DX or P400A (Digital or normal)

    MrBrightSyde reacted to PianoPlayer88Key in [psucultists] PSU Tier List   
    I almost feel it's getting to be TOO many tiers, or somehow a bit too complex in some way, idk how to say it.
     
    One idea might be ... basically for units to be in Tier A, they have to be able to output 100% of their advertised wattage (the big number that's advertised not just the 12V amps printed on the label), 24/7, under any combination of load (whether you load it up with GPUs, or just use an APU in the -Y segment and use M.2 SSDs, or hard drives to load it up, or whatever), with an ambient ROOM (not case) temperature right at the PSU's rating, for at least the length of the warranty, without degrading any components that are connected to the system.
    Tier B might be units that don't meet those requirements in some way (for example they might start to degrade before the warranty expires when run 24/7 at 50°C ambient room temperature, or you can't fully load the 5V or 3.3V rails (or whatever hard drives, RAM, M.2 SSDs, etc use) to the big number printed on the box, etc), but they're still not hazards to your equipment.
    Tier C would be units that can ever damage equipment that's hooked up to that PC, under ANY circumstances - even if you load it to 1.5x capacity, or do it after 2x the warranty length has passed, etc.  If even *ONE* sample out of an entire manufacturing run even degrades another part just a little (doesn't even have to outright kill the part), the ENTIRE line (not just that wattage) gets put in Tier C, or whatever it would be called.
    Units that blow up in the process of killing themselves, but only the PSU is harmed, could still be in Tier B as long as they don't harm other components, but if they're a danger to human health or life they'd be in C.

    Maybe that's still too many tiers, maybe we only need 2?  Ones that work as advertised, and ones that don't?
     
    Or maybe tiering should be based on the intended use?  I'm kind-of a bit miffed that I only see gaming or office PCs as use case scenarios in the tier list, but what about rendering servers?  What about NAS?  What about any other use that RISC or CISC or x86 or ARM or whatever architectures might be capable of, both now and in the future (as well as past that may no longer be supported)?  I could be wrong, but I have the feeling that a PSU that would be considered "dangerous" for modern high-end gaming might be fine for running a retro PC for running old DOS applications....

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from BillNyeThecommieSpy in 750 gold rating ok?   
    Uh, you are thinking about the FX/FM series which had issues with high trans. gpus. The GX/GM series was made to fix the issue basically.
     
    Honestly, if they were the same price, the sp11 for sure, but when the difference is $10 and they are both good PSUs, I'd just go with what's cheaper.

    And only the top m.2 connector is SATA M.2 compatible, which was my point. He's using the MX500, a SATA m.2 drive.
     
    @Youngsinarta You also need to change which SATA port your SSD is using.

    MrBrightSyde reacted to seon123 in 750 gold rating ok?   
    Wherever you read that is wrong. I recommend you stay away from wherever you read that.
    The 80+ rating says nothing about how good a PSU is, only how efficient it is. 450-550W would be more sensible wattages.
    Ignore the brand, and just get a good PSU. Every brand is equally capable of selling crap.
     
     
    The Straight Power 11 is available for $110. It is decently quiet and performs well.

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from gloop in 650w PSU for this system?   
    Yeah, the only thing I know is that it's a different PSU from the NZXT C and E series. It's the NZXT S650, and given that NZXT has been using Seasonic Focus PSUs and modifying them, it has to be either a rebranded or modified Seasonic Focus SGX.
     
    That matches the Focus SGX specs perfectly (the Fractal Design Ion SFX also uses that platform IIRC), leaving me to believe it's a Focus SGX.
