PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 10.0

welcome to the brand new PSU Tier List! Created and maintained by @Princess Luna, @DatTestBench, @Stefan Payne, @GreatMasterAden, @PSUGuru, @Juular and @LukeSavenije

 

Last Update: 19-02-2020

 

Tiering of various units is opinion based off reputable sources linked in a spoiler below the list.

Units may be bumped down due to the following methodology:

Spoiler

Tier S must have OCP, OPP, SCP, OTP, UVP, OVP, inrush current limiting, well configured multirail, independent regulation, be Half-/Full bridge and meet c6/c7 crossloads. they exceed a+ requirements and stand out from the other tier units in build quality.

 

Tier A+ is required to have OCP, OPP, SCP, OTP, UVP, OVP, inrush current limiting, well configured multirail, independent regulation, be Half-/Full bridge and meet c6/c7 crossloads.

 

Tier A is required to have OPP, SCP, OTP, UVP, OVP, inrush current limiting, independent regulation, be Half-/Full bridge and meet c6/c7 crossloads.

 

Tier B+ is required to have OPP, SCP, OTP, UVP, OVP, inrush current limiting, independent regulation, be ACRF/Half-/Full bridge and meet c6/c7 crossloads.

 

Tier B is required to have OPP, SCP, UVP, OVP, inrush current limiting, independent regulation and meet c6/c7 crossloads.

 

Tier C+ is required to have OPP, SCP, UVP, OVP, inrush current limiting and meet c6/c7 crossloads.

 

Tier C falls slightly behind requirements, but has rather unrealistic scenarios where it'll fail in (3.3v/5v transients, overload ripple, failing fan controller and so on)

 

Tier D is everything that falls short of the other tier's requirements, but can only have a potential to be dangerous in certain situations.

 

Tier E has heavily malfunctioning protections or far outdated and is not recommended to use with any modern system.

Information about commonly mentioned terms:

Spoiler

Protections

Spoiler

 

Voltages

Spoiler

12V rail

The most important rail in current PSUs, mostly used by the power hungry parts like the GPU and CPU, but also part of the motherboard and part of the molex connector.

 

5V rail

An important, but much less used rail, mostly used by storage and part of the GPU.

 

3.3V rail

A rail that gets less and less relevant, it provides power to the RAM (though this can be 12v as well these days), chipset and M.2 drives

Single- and Multirail

Spoiler

Single rail

A single rail lets all the current of a voltage, in this case 12v go over a single trace or “rail” (see them as breakers in your house). This has the advantage of turning off less quickly, but does mean it allows full current to go through a single wire or connector, potentially melting or burning it before shutting down

 

Multi rail

Multi rail these days aren’t physical rails, rather they have multiple points where they measure the current (generally 2-8). it can shut down the psu earlier to protect itself, with a lower chance of burning through connectors and/or cables with a catastrophic failure.

Regulation and Topology

Spoiler

Group regulation

Group regulation is the oldest way of regulation mentioned here. It regulated 5v and 12v from one coil, and 3.3v from another. It’s generally only used on cheap PSUs, and has the downside of getting out of ATX specification if the 12v is too far loaded up while the 5v isn’t.

 

Independent regulation

Independent regulation regulates 3.3, 5 and 12v all independently. It’s known in the forms of double mag amp and DC-DC. It doesn’t have the crossload problems group regulation has.

 

Double mag amp

Double mag amp is the less efficient form of independent regulation, as it needs a load to work. These are rare to see these days, as dc-dc is generally preferred.

 

DC-DC

DC-DC is the more efficient and widely used form of independent regulation. As it doesn’t need a load to work, it’s more efficient. Most units sold at the time of writing are DC-DC

 

Double Forward

The cheapest to produce topology, it heavily relies on hard switching, and can start to whine with higher end GPUs (Vega, 1070+, 2070+)

 

ACRF (Active Clamp Reset Forward)

ACRF or Active Clamp Reset Forward is something mostly used by FSP, and it’s pretty much a more efficient way of double forward. They have a lower chance of whining, but still have a good chance on it compared to half- and full bridge.

 

Half bridge

Half Bridge configurations are usually seen in PSUs with LLC Resonant converters mostly and this circuit is used to minimize switching power losses and can be more efficient, half bridge utilities 2 fets. Half bridge is generally preferred over double forward and ACRF.


Full bridge
Full bridge configurations are similar to Half Bridge configs, however utilizes 4 fets, lower power can be less efficient compared to half bridges, but at higher power platforms it can make quite a difference. it does generally cost the most out of the 4 topologies to produce.

Digital parts

Spoiler

Digital Monitoring

Monitors current and reports it to software like NZXT CAM or Corsair iCue, generally using the OCP rail to measure.

 

Digital Circuit

Analog and digital circuits at the end have one goal: transmit data and process information into other forms(sound, light, etc). Digital circuits function on two fixed signal levels, 1s and 0s(binary). This allows for better control of switching frequencies under different loads and can achieve really high efficiency, but is also much more expensive to implement

Specifications

Spoiler

ATX specification

A certification maintained by Intel that sets baselines for PSUs to meet.

 

c6/c7 crossloads

c6/c7 sleep states or “Haswell ready” connects to a sleep state used on Intel processors of 4th gen or newer. AMD has these sleep states too, but doesn’t specifically name them. most importantly it has to meet a crossload performance and that it has to be keepable to do a zero-load-power, that most group regulated units can’t meet, it’s highly recommended you pick something up for modern systems that meets this.

Spoiler

Ripple

Ripple is mostly the noise in DC not filtered out from the AC current. A high ripple can shorten part’s lifespan. Intel allows up to 120mV, but we prefer to keep it below 50.

 

Inrush current limiting

An inrush current limiter tries to limit inrush current, the instantaneous current electronic devices draw when turned on. This is normally done with a so called NTC Thermistor.

 

Italics = temporary/estimated position

Green = SFX(-L)/TFX

Purple = Multi-rail units with manual OCP trigger point control

Blue= Quiet operation - sub 25 dBa at 400w load for 550-650w units/500w load for 750-850w

Underline = PcPartPicker link (random wattages except noted otherwise)

 

Tier S - The best built units, generally come at a premium

 

Tier A+ - Recommended for 650w+ high end systems (HEDT, Multi-GPU)

 

Tier A - Recommended for <=650w high end systems

 

Tier B+ - Recommended for midrange systems

 

Tier B - Recommended for entry level gaming systems

 

Tier C+ - Recommended for entry level desktops, low profile HTPCs, Office desktops.

 

Tier C - Units that fall short from upper tiers due to issues (see notes)

@LukeSavenije there was some unhappiness with the fact that there are so many tier list versions on our forum, can you add a disclaimer that the 3,0 would have been updated into this anyway if lienus still maintained it? (this is a bit of a 3.5)

@Den-Fi Hey hey, this time there was a reason to though, @LienusLateTips has informed he will not longer be available to manage the OP on the current Tier List and therefore asked someone else to take it forward on a new thread.

 

We have also tried to update the list and decided to keep it simple and straight forwards just for people to have a quick reference to check, as always anyone looking to purchase a brand new PSU is always advised to make their own proper individual threads for the best assistance possible from our community.

Makes sense.

Would love to see an effort made to cite where this information is sourced.

Methodology and sources are the backbone of lists like this. It would go a long way to keep this list strong and relevant as it ages.

Is it just spam at this point ? lol

Still no sources

I don't get what's the difference between the last one other than the post is newer & higher amongst the posts in the section 

 

 

You know.. the point of revisions is to keep the last update up as long as possible, updating it as things come out / you add sources.

 

Just dumping the same info in another post with none of the suggested improvement brings nothing to the table

It should have been a top priority as the list was published. Just as you’ve all put lots of work into this, so did your sources. I won’t dwell on it any further as I’m sure you will do it, but I hope this happens soon for the sake and credibility of this project.

It should have been a top priority as the list was published. Just as you’ve all put lots of work into this, so did your sources. I won’t dwell on it any further as I’m sure you will do it, but I hope this happens soon for the sake and credibility of this project. 

When I brought this up internally, quite a while ago, the response was that it was too much work, and that he was busy. One of the several reasons I decided to get less involved, and eventually leave. And that has pretty much been his response to pretty much everyone for quite some time.

Is it just spam at this point ? lol

Still no sources

I don't get what's the difference between the last one other than the post is newer & higher amongst the posts in the section 

 

 

You know.. the point of revisions is to keep the last update up as long as possible, updating it as things come out / you add sources.

 

Just dumping the same info in another post with none of the suggested improvement brings nothing to the table

As stated in the "best answer" post at the very top, the OP of the last list stepped down from keeping the list updated. This required changing hands to someone else who was willing to keep it updated.

I'd change the Tier D - Not Recommended to some different wording.  Some people may read it as "Trash, avoid them" and they'll go for some local no-name crap instead which will be even worse.

There's quite a few solid power supplies in that Tier D category, which could be considered "high end" in some regions where there's not much selection or options to buy online.

 

It would make more sense to have the list as an excel/google docs sheet because it would allow for some comments columns

 

I'd add a comment to psus that are rated for less than 40c ambient temperature ex EVGA N1 being rated 400w @ 25c or older Corsair VS rated for 30c (current models are 40c)

I'd also consider warranty - for example should be noted any psu that has less than 5 years warranty if it's in tier B... there's power supplies with 5y or more years warranty in Tier C

 

The list should use a better font, maybe something sans-serif, makes it more readable.

Even using source code snippets would make it more readable, here's an example :

 

Aerocool	Project 7
Asus		ROG Thor
BeQuiet		SFX-L
Cooler Master	V Semi-Modular, Masterwatt Maker MiJ, V-Gold 2013/2018, V-platinum 2013
Corsair		RMx, AX 2013, RM 2019, HX Gold 750w+, TXm Gold, Vengeance Silver, SF, AX 2018
Cougar		GX-F Aurum, GX-F
Enermax		RG, GX
EVGA		PS, G/P/T2
Enermax		Platimax
FSP		Aurum PT/Xilencer/Pro, Hydro G/X/PT/PTM, Dagger SFX
Gamdias		Astrape P1
Kolink		Continuum
Mistel		MX
NZXT		E
Rosewill	Capstone, Lightning, Silent Night, Photon
Sama		Armor Gold/Platinum, Forza Titanium
Seasonic	Focus GX/GM/PX, Prime, X/XP2/XP3, Snow Silent
Super Flower	Golden Green, Leadex I/II/III
Thermaltake	Toughpower Grand Gold/Platinum, iRGB Plus, DPS Gold
XFX		Pro Black Edition Limited, XTS 1000w, Pro Black FM 750w+

any suggestions on that? the tier d's are for a reason not recommended to use, but not straight up bombs like tier e (kinda) is

this would for one make things pretty complicated, as not all warranties are the same everywhere, both in policy and even duration for some locations. and to name an example: if you smoke in the living room, a psu warranty can sometimes be worthless already

 

the other things i can't give any comments on as of right now
