[OLD] PSU Tier List 3.0 (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

anyway i got a question from my friend

cougar vte any thoughts? what tier is it?

 

https://cougargaming.com/us/products/psus/vte/

 

its dc-dc and has a pretty strong single rail 12v. its cost 40$ for 400w which is pretty cheap

It only claims DC-DC for the 3,3V rail, which is independently regulated anyway. The 5V and 12V rails are probably regulated together. Also, being single rail just means it lacks multi rail OCP. 

Probably in one of the trash tiers.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

evga 450gd cost 53$

whisper bwg550m cost 92$

 

is it worth to get the whisper instead of evga? what does make whisper much more expensive other than wattage and modularity?

Yes, totally worth it.


I'd not look at the EVGA at all.

They aren't anything special.

If you don't care about noise (like I, and I think most people), go for the GD.

Well, it's an EVGA... So probably noisy.

The EVGA GD uses the same FSP platform that is used in the Be Quiet Pure Power 10... Obviously lacks the BeQuiet Silent Wings fan that the pure power has, but as far as the platform goes it should be decent.

No, it means that if you're ultra-sensitive to noise like some people are, get something else. The noise level is acceptable for most people.

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

This is just based on other EVGA units. They're a bit louder than most... but not that loud.

 

But I could be completely wrong and the think could be a jet. Unlikely, though.

Don't judge by brand. Especially when they're using a different OEM than usual.

That was among the first results in YT

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 ?

which 1 is better Super Flower Bronze or U9? (there is no SP Bronze here)

That's something.

 

Zalman 850 EBT for roughly the same price as a 500w pure power 11. Though who on earth needs 850w, is a good question

It's a shame it's the 850W one, not 750W. The 850W-1200W ones use a worse platform (High Power HPJ, double forward with synchronous rectification and DC-DC) than the 550-750W EBT models. (High Power HPM platform, half bridge LLC with SR and DC-DC).

 

Of course you can only hope this list would make a distinction, lol. It just groups them all into "Zalman EBT" in one tier.

 

And there's also the fact that Rosewill Photon also uses two different (worse and better) platforms and there's no distinction either.

 

...And also how Rosewill Photon uses the exact same two platforms as Zalman EBT, but it's tier higher.
