I've been looking at the Corsair RM 2019 PSUs. Sorry if I missed it, but does anyone know where they'd fit in this?

They're the "RM Gray". They fit in single-rail Tier A

@Bomster Either, really. But there's also ADX Power W750 for 20 pounds cheaper that uses the same platform as that Bitfenix unit except for probably cheaper fan or smth, Fractal Design ION+ with reportedly very soft and convenient cables and Corsair RM-x.

Is the difference between Cooler Master MWE V2 Brozne (retails for 83$ at my country) and Gigabyte G750H (retails for 107.5$ at my country) worth paying 25$ extra?

Well, the Gigabyte GH is Tier A while the CM MWE V2 Bronze depends on whether it's 230V only (Tier C) or full range (110-240V/Tier B) The GH is 80+ Gold, so if you are using it for more than a few years, the price difference will pay for itself in terms of lowering your power bill, especially if power is a little expensive in your country.

It also depends on what you are powering. If you get the full range MWE V2 Bronze, it should be enough for a mid-range build.

Thanks, I think I will pick the Gigabyte G750H.

Another question, I saw on pc part picker that Corsair CXM (Tier C) (retails for 87$ at my country) got 5 out of 5 stars by 150 people.

Is the difference between it and the Gigabyte G750H (Tier A) that big?

Build quality wise, yeah. Gigabyte GH is LLC while the CXM is Double Forward. GH uses a ball-bearing fan IIRC while the CXM uses a sleeve-bearing fan.

PCPartPicker ratings are a little like Amazon reviews, worthless for the most part unless something is completely wrong.

• Deepcool | DQ-M-V2L [2]

[2] CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, source.

 

So which tier would this be if my country's voltage is 240v?

240V > 230V

the g750h share the same platform like the enermax revolution xt ii that in tier C, from what i could find it got the same protections and shouldn't be in tier a.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Since higher voltage is lower current, that's a good thing.

Enermax Revolution X't II is in tier C because apparently it doesn't have OTP, Gigabyte G-H does.

G750H got the same supervisor IC Sitronix ST9S313-DAG.

Aris didn't found OTP OCP.

The chip don't support, maybe they got (OCP) in other place.

in GB they don't mansion OTP and OCP.

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/enermax-revolution-xt-ii-750w-power-supply,4549.html

https://ru.gecid.com/power/gigabyte_gp-g750h/?s=all

"The unit's protection suite is fairly basic, with OTP and OCP missing (according to Enermax OCP is supported on the minor rails at least, however the used supervisor IC doesn't support OCP at all. We overloaded the minor rails with more than 30 Amps on each rail, but still no OCP kicked in so it is safe to assume that this protection is totally absent)"

I'm not positive, that's just about 40% overload and OCP is actually required by ATX standard anyway (whether it effectively works or not is a different question). But i can't find a source on why i thought that Gigabyte G750H has OTP, it's going to be detiered to tier C in the next revision.

You said you will write them and ask.

The quote is from the enermax review.

Oh, i did, they didn't provide any new information. So either it doesn't have OTP indeed or they're wrong. Although i'm confident that they're definitely wrong about OCP, i.e not listing it among the protections on the product page.

Would you recommend it for high end system? (240v)

Definitely not.
