It is, indeed:

Its SilentWings 3 fan at such low RPM (<300) will be virtually inaudible, and silent enough at moderate loads. It wasn't Blue or Gold because of the 1000W model, which is quite noisy, but the lower wattages should meet the requirements. It'll be fixed as Juular said ;)

Thanks man, excited to get one!

MPY is 2018 rev. Since you already have it that's okay.

Thank you.  I'm assuming the 2018 one is also a Chicony product?  What kinds of performance in terms of efficiency or clean power (?) am I giving up compared to a RM750x for example? :D

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

It has some ripple issues on very low load and overall performance is meh for how it's positioned as.

Sustained at that, with almost 500W sub millisecond peaks ...

Hey guys, so I was scouring all the shop referencing to this list for my PSU. Now I was able to see Cougar GEX here, and luckily found a stock of it, Cougar GEX 850 80+ Gold. Now with that comes excitement, and I bought it right there and then and didn't bother to check for reviews. I just knew i saw it on this list, now when I try to check out good ol google for reviews, can't find any. Just checking in to see where did the list gets the recommendation that this psu is good? I mean it looks good for me, but i'd like to see an expert dig around.

Interesting....

 

Can't wait to see what happens once the AIB cards are tested for OCs after the software issues are worked out.

 

Some seemed to be having problems because they can't raise the power limits in the software yet..

 

That 489.1W peak interesting taking into count some of the recommendations that we tend to see around here. And at least one 550W PSU recommendation already and another 600W PSU recommendation.....🙄

damn! but 372w is the peak of 3080 tuf oc, 1785 clock

 

3080 tuf normal: OC Mode - 1740 MHz (Boost Clock)
Gaming Mode - 1710 MHz (Boost Clock)

 

so the peak will probably be 348w in gaming mode, like FE. 

still to much?

 

 

Just buy a new PSU.... 🙄

 

You need a good high quality 750W PSU....

Is the Corsair RMX White Series (2018), RM850x, 850 Watt is a good buy for the 3080 ?!? Looking at the list I can see it is in the higher tier, I guess it will do a great job ? Or any better quality/price options you guys can suggest, don't really mind the brand I just want it to do the job (MSI Trio X 3080 with 9900k 5ghz)

@spoderman80s Yes.

 

@PCwithTheRTXtattoo There are some reviews in the spreadsheet, they're mostly good just to know what platform it uses, same as Cooler Master MWE Gold for example, so it was placed accordingly. I wouldn't say it's a good PSU to get for RTX3080 if that's what you're planning to do.

Well, there are always transient power draw peaks higher than average, it's just that this GPU is pretty high power draw to start with. 550W PSU might be actually okay for RTX3080 paired with something like R5 3600X if it's a good PSU.

I watched GN live stream on OCing the 3080 FTW3 Ultra, that's a 3x 8 pin card and as far as I could tell the draw was around 400W give or take... The card was starving for power even with a 400W draw... Was limited obviously..... My 2080Ti pulls 375W..... So I am not sure what is going on there... Starting to get underwhelmed with this release...... The 2x 8 Pin cards were pulling about the same ~375W so..... Ah.....

 

Makes me wonder what those 3090's are going to pull....

 

I suppose we will find out eventually...

 

Edit,

 

Just found out the 3080 FTW3's are capped at 420W and the 3090's FTW3 will be capped at 440W.... For now......  So..... I am not so sure how that is going to work out for those typical PSU recommendations we see around here.

@JuularI don't plan on getting the 3080. Too overpower for me, i'm planning on getting the 3070 tho, or if Big Navi is as good as AMD claims it to be. Will my GEX be able to give me stable power for either one of them? With that being said, once the PSU supplies gets back to normal, i'll probably sell this and get me something more on the tier a side.

I don't really trust this as much as others do. I mean, you put some no-name Chinese trash in tier A while my Supernova G3 Gold 650 is merely a tier B and not a very good one at that? It should have melted by now on my 380W 1080 and R5 2600X (they're almost always at 100%)....

maybe if you checked the sourcesheet you'd understand

 

and while you're at it, probably also read why G3 is in that position

No telling, data on transient power draw spikes of RTX3080 suggests that some PSUs might have problems with it even if they're rated for enough wattage on average, no idea if it's true for that platform, and we don't know anything about RTX3070 yet. Either way, it's rather budget platform anyway, i'd recommend to look for smth better.

What if i tell you that EVGA G3 is trash too, albeit not Chinese (or perhaps it is since Super Flower or EVGA offloaded some production to RSY for it). Regardless, the country of origin of PSU has nothing to do with it's quality, that's not a metric we base this tier list on.

Most PSUs are actually made in China etc so....

I'm curious as to what no-name Chinese trash in tier A he's referring to.
