  1. I've just installed a Noctua D15 Chromax and my load temps appear to be higher than expected, particularly during load. I previously had a Noctua D15 standard and it appeared to be 4-5C cooler. I'm getting 73C with Prime95 small FFTs and 75C with OCCT's power torture test. 60C with 3D Mark. Typical usage I'm getting 35-40C idle and 50C when playing games such as Doom Eternal. To those with the Noctua D15, what are your typical idle and load temps for reference?
  2. Yes. Go for 750W or higher. Peak values for the 3080 can reach nearly 500W. Granted these only last for milliseconds but better safe than sorry.
  3. Typically you require proof of purchase to redeem warranties for pretty much every electronic item. Do you have an online invoice? Do you remember where you purchased the PSU from? A good retailer would have kept records.
  4. Price wise, where is what I have: Bitfinex Whisper M 750: £113 Focus PX 750: £123 Corsair HX 750: £148 Tbh I'm more split between the Focus PX and Corsair HX due to the Platinum efficiency. @GoldenLag What makes the Whisper M a better unit than the Focus PX? I was under the impression the Focus PX was a very good unit - all reviews seem to be extremely positive.
  5. I'll probably rule out of the Straight Power as it only provides 5 year warranty. I note the Whisper M and Revolution DF are multi-rail. Is this better than a single rail PSU format? Sorry to throw another PSU in the mix, but how is the Corsair HX 750?
  6. Admittedly the 'Platinum' efficiency rating of the Focus drew me to that. Out of the one you listed, which is the one I should go for? Efficiency and silence are my preference.
  7. I did initially consider the Fractal but the Focus is rated higher on Tom's Hardware, hence I went for the latter.
  8. I'm not too familiar with other PSUs so these were the ones I narrowed it down to based on price. The G2 750W is £100 at a second hand price. The Focus PX 750 and Prime GX 750 are £140. From the UK. Furthermore, how long are PSUs rated to last? Is there a recommendation to replace them every X years, or can they run until they die?
  9. https://www.igorslab.de/en/the-battle-of-graphics-card-against-power-supply-power-consumption-and-peak-loads-demystified/5/ This article and the prospect of running my 650W at 85% load whilst using an RTX 3080 scared me if I'm honest. I sold a bunch of stuff on eBay including my current PSU so had spare cash. I've also noted the PRIME GX 750 was the exact same price as the FOCUS PX 750. The Prime PX is £20 more. Which would you go for?
  10. What is the higher quality PSU between the EVGA Supernova G2 750, Seasonic Focus PX 750 and PRIME GX 750?
  11. I'm in a similar boat with a 650PSU (EVGA G2). Using this power supply calculator gave me a similar figure (575W load) for my components. This would peg my PSU running at 88% load. Are there any inherent disadvantages to running a PSU near it's max capacity?
  12. I was interested in this unit until I stumbled across this thread via a Google Search. Would this PSU be safe to purchase? How I determine the revision date? https://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-seasonic-focus-px-750-80plus-platinum-single-rail-fully-modular-62a-120mm-fan-atx-psu Or should I avoid and go for an alternative? My requirements are a 750W platinum unit which is quiet.
