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.

@Juular Looks like GEX is better than what I expected it to be. At least on the review sites the sheet has provided. It's in chinese and Korean and the tests perform were pretty decent, I think I'll hold on to this a bit more and see how it goes. Apparently, it has 6 protective circuit UVP, SCP , OTP, OCP, OVP, and OPP. Main cap is japanese made nippon chemi-con as well, I heard they're good(?).

I have question regarding voltage regulation which probably isn't really matter, but I'm curious :P

 

Which psu is considered better?

One with tighter variation (0.2%) but overall voltage is 3% higher (e.g. 12.300v~12.325v) or the one with looser variation(0.8%) but overall voltage is closer (within 1%) to 12V (e.g. 11.952v~12.048v)?

No one can give a definitive answer, theoretically, tighter regulation is always better, even if it's somewhat offset from nominal to the higher voltage but when it comes to anything sub 1% the difference should be negligent.

Can anyone recommend a good 650w psu for around £60?

My apologies, I did actually do this, however, I was told by a member to ask on this tier list
