  1. The 80+ rating is just for efficiency. It says nothing about how good the PSU is. The Prime Titanium uses a crappy fan and lacks multi rail OCP, and Seasonic units seem to have issues with GPU transients (so basically higher end GPUs). If you want a good PSU, then just get an actually good PSU, and ignore the efficiency.
  2. Why do you want MX Silent Black instead of a decent silenced switch? If you for some reason need to get those in particular, KBDfans has those in stock. But you could also get Gateron Ink Silents, Box Silent Pinks, Roselios/Sakurios, or one of the several Durock silent linear switches (Alpaca, Durock's own etc), all of which would be better options.
  3. The recommendation is generally to use one cable if the GPU TDP is below 225W, and to use more if it's higher. So it depends
  4. A free to play game being free is not a deal. Rocket League being free on the Epic Games store is not a hot deal.
  5. Uh... Dude... I don't know which rock you've been living under, but Rocket League is going free to play. It has been expected for a while, and has even been confirmed. https://www.gamesradar.com/rocket-league-free-to-play-date-may-just-have-been-leaked-by-nintendo/
  6. The fan should be pretty much the same crappy Hong Hua fan that Seasonic likes to use, even on their Prime series PSUs. It's just a crappy fan. If the fan is faulty, just RMA the PSU. If you want a quiet PSU, get a PSU with a halfway decent fan and fan curve.
  7. Just like with any other component, you'd likely look at the performance, noise, features etc. I.e. the regulation, ripple, transient response, noise, protections, custom cable compatibility etc. The Enermax Revolution D.F. is a good option. The 750W is a very reasonable €100, it performs well, is pretty quiet (I believe TweakPC tests at ambient, so take the fan RPM numbers with a grain of salt), and has multi rail OCP. Custom cable compatibility may be an issue, if you want to get custom cables for it. https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/netzteile/enermax_revolution_df/s09.php
  8. The ROG Thor is just a downgraded Seasonic Prime... With a double ball bearing fan and now useless heatsinks. It still lacks multi rail OCP, and Seasonic has historically had some issues with their soldering quality. The OLED screen also has a 2 year warranty, which is separate from the rest of the PSU's warranty, iirc. Depending on what you are powering, and where you're buying from, I would likely choose either the HX, or neither.
  9. Hard to come with recommendations without knowing where you'll be buying from. The availability and pricing will vary. So where are you buying from? Either way, I would recommend against the Prime (or any Seasonic...), as even their highest end PSUs use a crappy Hong Hua fan, which will have motor noise. They also like to cheap out on their protections by omitting multi rail OCP on all of their new PSUs. The Dark Power Pro 12 is supposed to come out at some point, Be Quiet has already shown it off. Also not the RM. One of the downgrades on that compared to the more expensive RMx is the Hong Hua fan. And it again lacks multi rail OCP. Using high quality parts does not make for a good PSU. Having an efficient PSU does also not make for a good or quiet PSU.
  10. Likely spring ping. That can be reduced by using springs that aren't garbage, and pretty much eliminated by lubing the springs. It's not technically a full size, but it has pretty all the keys in a more compact layout. GMMK is another option again, but that one does not have extra holes for PCB mount switches (not an issue, just annoying that you have to cut off two metal pins if your switch is PCB mount), and it uses plate mount stabilisers. While the XD96 supports PCB mount switches, and you can use screw in stabilisers, which are superior to plate mount stabilisers (e.g. Durock/Everglide). You're likely better off getting a barebones kit if you get the GMMK, as the switch options they carry are not really interesting. The keycaps should be fine, though, as they are just cheap doubleshot ones (miles better than on gaming prebuilts).
  11. Why would you order Cherry...? That's the worst of the 3 Red switch options. If anything, that's an upgrade
  12. Of course Cherry MX Blues will still work, but there's no point sticking to them. The GMMK is a prebuilt option with hot swap sockets. So you could get the barebones version of that, clicky switches of your choice (Box Jade or Box Pink are popular), and some cheap doubleshot PBT keycaps. Unlike boards from Razer, Corsair and Logitech, it uses a completely standard bottom row layout, so you can use pretty much any keycap set on it, instead of being stuck to absolute garbage quality keycaps. Which does affect the feel and sound of the keyboard significantly
  13. Consider getting a switch tester before deciding on switches. The Kailh Box Jade is my favourite clicky switch. I went to the effort of disassembling and desoldering the Cherry MX Blues on my Logitech G710 to get Box Jades instead, because they were that much nicef. You can easily get a kit like the XD96, and choose your own switches, keycaps, stabilisers and case. Just simple through hole soldering, and much nicer than mainstream prebuilts. Whatever you do, I really recommend you avoid any Corsair keyboard, or the ROG Scope, as those use a non-standard bottom row, so you can't really replace them. Corsair, Logitech and Steelseries also use garbage keycaps on all of their keyboards. I also recommend you avoid Cherry MX Blues (or any of Cherry's switches, really...), as they just sound and feel like garbage compared to e.g. Box Jades
  14. Probably neither, I would look for other options. Both use crappy Hong Hua fans (the Prime Gold is even louder than the Focus Platinum), both lack multi rail OCP, and both are manufactured by Seasonic, so they might have soldering quality issues. What are your specs, and where are you buying from?
