[OLD] PSU Tier List 3.0 (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

FYI:  This really should be it's own thread.  There's a whole forum of PSU questions and you choose to throw your post in the PSU Tier List thread?

Im going to get to the bottom of this tonight but I think my Corsair HX850 is shot. 

What makes you think you have a PSU issue?  What are your symptoms?

Im really disappointed (don't have my receipt maybe my Newegg invoice from 7 years ago will work) that the PSU didn't last longer. 

You're disappointed a PSU didn't last more than 7 years?  How many other PC components do you have that are more than 7 years old?

Need suggestions (looking to spend less than $150 for sure) on a PSU to power for the next 4-5 years my R7 1700 and for a shorter time, 2x R9 Fury Tri-X Nitro's (once I replace my other GPU) in crossfire.

So your old PSU should have lasted more than 7 years, but the new one only has to last four to five????

*will make another thread for all this but you deserve an answer*

PSU developed coil whine over night, getting complete system restarts (no fan spin ups just dead shut down then restart) at random when GPU takes load, or random during gaming (cant replicate, just random) - I am ruling out the GPU now have an old HD 7850 in it atm but PSU still whines, no shut downs yet (have another R9 Fury but wife is gaming atm cant test out with that draw)

EDIT - taking voltmeter to it tomorrow with electrical guy at work

 

Yes at this pricepoint 100% disappointed.  If you think otherwise that's odd to me.  Every PC component from that same 7 year old PC is working right now so I guess expectation is high?

 

Apparently that price point (which Im willing to spend) only lasts up to 7 - of course my expectation should drop...considering your line of questions, yeah?

Reboot isn't typically a PSU issue.  Shut down is.

 

If it's rebooting, look at RAM as a possible source of your issue.

 

Coil whine is something that occurs in lots of PSUs, new and old, and can vary based on hardware used and the load.  The whine is caused by electricity flowing through magnetics (transformer, coils, etc.) at an audible frequency.  It does not point to a defective PSU.

They give the PSU a 7 year warranty because they expect it to only last 7 years.  Of all of the parts in a PC, the PSU easily works the hardest, yet is the one that is often overlooked and is left in the PC from upgrade to upgrade because there's no way to "benchmark" a PSU without very expensive equipment.

Sorry if this has been asked already but I don't really feel like reading 33 pages... Why is the evga g3 considered poorer than the G2?  My understanding was that the quality was as good or better and the only downside was potentially more fan noise.

OPP is set a bit high so it might burn under overload and die.

OTP is set really really high

 

The usual sutff that really differentiates PSU these days: Protection. Protection and Protection. The electrical stuff is fine for most units.

Is 620 watt psu enough for i5 9600k and rtx 2080 gaming x trio which is the gpu recommend psu is 650watt

As Jon said.

Look for a different PSU. Its not the Wattage, its the way the PSU is made/constructed that makes it not desirable for any somewhat higher end system.

 

In short: Its an old design, lacks protection, is loud as hell under medium loads (the 300-400W you might reach with that system)...

And you also can get far better units for the money...

Coil whine is something that occurs in lots of PSUs, new and old, and can vary based on hardware used and the load.  The whine is caused by electricity flowing through magnetics (transformer, coils, etc.) at an audible frequency.  It does not point to a defective PSU.

 

They give the PSU a 7 year warranty because they expect it to only last 7 years.  Of all of the parts in a PC, the PSU easily works the hardest, yet is the one that is often overlooked and is left in the PC from upgrade to upgrade because there's no way to "benchmark" a PSU without very expensive equipment.

Windows Event Viewer shows a power failure each time its occured (not at home again right now so cant give a screen/exact nomenclature) and the way its worded (on each instance it occurs, and Wattman pops up saying there was a power issue and the GPU restarted) is indicative to me as a PSU issue, because the whine just developed last week to the point of having a quiet PC to having one I can absolutely hear as soon as load is put on the PSU.  Ill run memtest but I 100% doubt is the RAM, and have another DDR4 dual channel kit to check just in case as well.  99% of every other indication says yes, PSU can cause Restarts so not sure why you would say this wouldn't be indicative of a PSU as I am not getting anything but this restart (no BSOD, BlackSOD, shut downs, memory codes, etc - the things that point to RAM). 

 

I understand why you say its oft overlooked - but in my cases that isn't even the case.  Every PSU Ive owned was, at its time of purchase, was considered a tier 1 PSU when it was released.  So I expect the highest end equipment to provide me with years of enjoyment, even beyond the Warranty.  Cars still get Lemon Laws even though it passes up its Warranty provided by the Manufacturer.

 

I cant rule out the GPU yet, as I cannot replicate.  But I can say that the whine is still there with a 130w GPU, as soon as load is dropped on the single (instead of using both) PCIe 6+2 pin coming from the PSU.

 

They give the PSU a warranty of 7 years because anything short of that is a PSU failure at this pricepoint.  Since I bought this in December 2012, this is still within Warranty so - failure.  You seem to be thinking I have no leg to stand on here - which is whatever in my case I don't care that is your opinion and you can opine it - however, everything you are saying screams to me Industry Excuses.  And if buying a PSU at that pricepoint still doesn't get me through the Warranty - why would I ever go through the hassle of that brand again?  My ANTECs and EVGA (old, used to be T1 PSUs) PSUs are still kicking it with zero issues and they are older than my HX.  And I paid a lot less.

 

Anyhow, I didn't get time to pull the PSU last night so will run the voltmeter across the PCIe rails - Im still bettings its one of them, or could be that one of the "legs" in the PCIe connector isn't making a good connection but that doesn't explain the sudden whine developed.

 

If you want, we can continue on this thread - but that wouldn't seem right given the amount of "why not make your own threads" you espouse. And the reason I haven't created a thread on this, is - it doesn't have me stumped.  Its the PSU.  Theres a slight off chance its the GPU but last nights troubleshooting has removed even more of the onus on the GPU - to the PSU being the culprit.

Meanwhile in local forum thread: Someone requires assistance to decide, which unit to choose (550w)

- Corsair RMX (2018)

- Evga G3

- SuperFlower Leadex Platina

 

I'd go with the corsair due to 10y warranty time, if I were him. Any reason to choose any of the other two?


Life is really challenging. I don't always suceed: )

Yeah we don't want personal questions like which psu should I buy, troubleshooting, etc. in here, just questions about the list itself, but inevitably that will happen here or there and regardless at some point even the legitimately relevant discussion will have piled up to far too much so it's kinda unavoidable.

There's no reason to pay £200 for that, it's only £200 because it has ROG branding on it. It's overpriced (as ROG products usually are).

It's just a slightly modified Seasonic Prime Platinum with ROG branding on it.

Well, it performs well, and has a long hold up time. 

https://www.cybenetics.com/index.php?option=database&manfID=66&volts=1

Compared to the Prime, it also adds RGB and the power monitoring thing on the side. I wouldn't recommend it for any rig, though, as it just doesn't make sense.

Well that seems pretty clear.  Now I guess we just need to see if they got a bad unit or they're exaggerating the issue, which should be possible to determine by seeing if others who test for this sort of thing found the same problems.  If they did, then it would seem its place in the list is deserved, and it's just a matter of seeing if the G2s also have these issues or not.

Well that seems pretty clear.  Now I guess we just need to see if they got a bad unit or they're exaggerating the issue, which should be possible to determine by seeing if others who test for this sort of thing found the same problems.  If they did, then it would seem its place in the list is deserved, and it's just a matter of seeing if the G2s also have these issues or not.

We're planning to bump down all PSUs that lack OTP to tier A, and same for high wattage single rail PSUs. So it probably won't matter anyway. 

Still not decided how many watts is required for "high wattage", and I also don't have too much time to bump the PSUs down, at least for the next few weeks.
