From what I've heard, it's more or less a VS with bronze efficiency, so it still falls behind the CX (still group regulated)

for the 450 and 550w models, that is

 

by @jonnyGURU's words the 650w is a dc-dc, but outside of it being hec, i know little about it

What is this? Is this a new series from Corsair? Corsair CV 550 80+ Bronze. At first, I thought it was a scam or a bootleg but apparently it's a legit product from Corsair. Is this better than the VS Series?

as said above, it's a vs, but slightly upgraded to meet 80+ bronze

in the markets I've seen it, it's barely less expensive than a CXM, which was true of the VS as well, so it's not really worth getting.

correct, for the 450/550w models

 

but since official reviews aren't out yet, nor have i been provided with internal shots, i'm not adding it just yet

Dang, it's rated at 30°C continuous temp same as VS. What a waste.

Here in India it's like 4$ less expensive than CX so not really worth it i think.

Yeah.  650W is an off the shelf HEC design with DC to DC.  450W and 550W are just upgraded VS Series.

 

It's supposed to be on the market for the SAME PRICE as VS.  At least based on what sales has been told the cost is (same as what they were selling the VS for last year).  So if you're seeing it for only around $4 less than CX-M or $4 more than VS, the reseller is trying to make more margin on it and/or it's too new for them to know what they want to sell them for.

 

The current VS is supposed to be replaced by CV.  So theoretically you could see VS "on clearance" creating a false price delta between it and CV.  But, like I was saying, if the VS was $10 cheaper than CX in your region, then CV should be $10 cheaper in your region as well.

I bought an MWE Bronze V2 650W on the 30th of December for my new build (RTX 2060, i5-9400f). I didn't have many choices, the PSU market here is very limited. A few days later I realised that I could buy a Riotoro Enigma G2 for 17 euro more (good job, me!). Furthermore, this PSU makes a quiet high pitched noise when the PC is off. I'm kind of stuck right now, as the consumer protection laws in my country don't allow me to return a product just because I don't like it, so if I would like my money back, I would need to send it in for testing, which can take up to a week or more... I really don't know what to do. Any advice would be much appreciated. (and the cherry on top is this low-load ripple issue. Great.)

I came across a SolidGear SDGR-600BX, which... As far as I can see doesn't even boast 80 plus efficiency.

It's not going in any of my builds, but I have it either way. Am I looking at a total firecracker here?

Even if you've bought it in US or EU, it would be soon 2 months since you bought it, i doubt you would've been able to return it there either.

And 17 EUR difference are kinda big, yeah, there should be probably smth else than Riotoro G2 for this price too

If you really don't like it, maybe just sell it to used-market ? Yes, value would be down but not much, it's already very cheap unit.

600W unit, 410W on 12V, it's group regulated and no info on supported protections so it's safe to assume it would've been very short list anyway. I'd say it is a firecracker when used with any dGPU higher than GT1030\1050. If you want cheapest possible unit for office PC, look at EVGA BR, it's a piece of crap but it's independent regulation at least.

Lol thx. I'm not buying a new unit, this just came in a cheap used PC I picked up for other parts.

Hey guys, I was gonna order the CX550M but I found this Gigabyte P650B unit which is cheaper, same Tier as CXM, more watts (future proof hopefully), and has Japanese Capacitors. Should I pick the Gigabytes PSU instead?

the cx550m does have otp as it's advantage, but both are decent budget psus

but the Jap Caps tho...

a myth debunked years ago

 

the origin of the caps don't matter. Taiwan, China, Germany or whatever can make good caps too

 

heck, some of these "japcap" companies don't even always produce there, and have part of their production in China or Taiwan
