Out of all of them, I'd recommend the Pure Power 11

ok seems like everyone favor pp11. the non CM version are equally as good right? 

Yeah it's just being modular and non modular, so there's suppose to not have any difference what so ever.

pp11 500w vs EA550G pro (seasonic).

 

which one is better? im about to buy the pp11 but my friend told me that pp11 are just tweaked pp10 which is not worth it, is it true?

What are you trying to power? the EA550G is actually worse if you use a GPU with high wattage spikes like the Vega56 and can trigger issues.

 

I'd go PP11 personally, it's quieter as well.

i showed your answer to my friend that recomended ea550g and he said this

 

 

"if you use vega56, I still don't recommend using pp11. pp11 topology is still active clamp reset forward, which is only a modification of the single forward topology. efficiency has increased dramatically, but the transient response is still weaker than resonant-HB LLC, especially the resonant LLC-FB
so the two will be messed up. seasonic focus due to aggressive protection settings, FSP raider because of design

but the problems in seasonic can be overcome by the manufacturer with a little tweaking.
on fsp? can't do it. must replace the new platform"
