Would that be a good option or should i look for something better

that would be an excellent option, if only a bit overkill on wattage. keep in mind it was the old version that came with individual sleeving though, the new one doesn't

Im also considering the rtx 2060 KO for $299 but im waiting for reviews

 

Coil whine likely  with that as well?

Im currently running an rx 570 4gb and dont have any issues

possibly, i haven't really seen testing with it myself... maybe nvidia should send a couple to me to test with my cxm... a man can dream

 

you can try running it with the b3 and see if it does, and go on from there. just keep in mind it's possible to happen

 

and again, it's just the sound, there's nothing damaging to coil whine

Only for this??? doesn't even exceed 30mV under 110% load and have full protections, I still don't understand how this PSU are in tier D+, I think is a great PSU. I don't think anyone buys the 750 watt model when their PC consumes 900 watts (for example)...

hence it's placement in tier d+ and not in tier d-e

This is my current PSU

https://www.microcenter.com/product/485309/powerspec-750-watt-80-plus-gold-atx-fully-modular-power-supply

 

Wanted to know if anyone used this model before. I've had it since 2018 when I built my second budget PC (Specs in sig) I'm told this is a Microcenter branded PSU so wanted to know the verdict on whether its decent or not. I only game (lightly atm, but that will change when I upgrade GPU) and browse on the net with it and thus far haven't had any problems with it whatsoever. But was curious!

it's preferred if you do get it... otp can be quite beneficial in case of a fan failure for example

this one SST-ET650-G has OTP as per website but as per this thread 

 it ain't good??

 

there's this another option too: SSR-550LC around the same price of 2

 

btw I am also considering to get a vega 56 since I found a very cheap deal on my local used market and I know its much more power hungry but i'll undervolt.

 

edit: cougar gx-s is tier b+ though vs the essential with OTP as per website that is tier B // this psu tier is confusing especially on low budget like me errr. I guess I'll still go with gx-s

@emhelmark No review on either of these PSUs, everything we have are speculation that Silverstone ET-G are probably some low-tier double-forward platform (CWT) and Seasonic Core are downgraded Seasonic Focus but without any data on actual performance it's impossible to recommend them. And with Vega 56 especially, it's very power hungry GPU, you need a very solid PSU for it, go no lower than tier A (maybe B+ if you really can't spare some extra 15-20 EUR), where are you from ? I see, Phillipines ...

Cougar gx-s then. 

 

Still haven't pulled the trigger on the $176 vega 56 I found though so then can wait for some cheap 5700 deals to might pop out.

You can always run it like that. The list is for noobs mainly and you can run into problems by overloading the Focus plus. Those also had lower tolerance for atx spec breaking gpu:s.

Where is this 268mV on seasonic focus platform PSU's?

at pceva. but it's possible that strix is a gx, not an fx

 

but i never got confirmation or denial from Asus's side

It's based on focus plus gold, strix was introduced before Seasonic change it's lineup. Author of this test confirmed it many times, and in my country he knows his job well. All the reviews show something completely different than what's on pceva (i think this 268mV is only their measurement error), so can i ask again why these psu's are in tier d+?.

and that's the huge mistake you make... those things are far from accurate and overestimate heavily. your setup will be completely fine on a 550-650w psu, even with the 7700k and 980 overclocked to the max on ambient cooling

 

60 bucks, without any problem

https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/yCMwrH/xilence-performance-x-550w-80-gold-certified-atx-power-supply-xn071

So, I bought the Xilence perf-x 550 you recommended, brand new. My pc booted once fully into windows and I had to change a few settings so I rebooted. (Also CPU was not running at the normal 3.9ghz, instead just 3.7 but I figured it would be fine.) And now my pc is trying to start but instead keeps restarting over and over. I dont even see the motherboards boot screen. Just on them off about 10 times now. 

When I manually shut it down and wait about 15 seconds and then turn it on, It boots up fine.

Sounds like memory training problem, reseat RAM, reset your BIOS.

Dumb question, but does Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB in Tier B include the Gold versions, or can those be included with Toughpower Grand Gold in Tier A? I'm having a hard time comparing the two according to this list since there's no link on the Toughpower Grand Gold in Tier A, but if I've shopped this correctly, Toughpower Grand Gold is available in RGB specific from previous Toughpower Grand lines...but it's hard to say because Thermaltake has HEAVILY widened their PSU lineup in the last few years.
