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

Ummm.... Why is Corsair RMi listed under multi/single rail switchable when manual indicates it as a single 12V rail unit?

Because it's single-rail by default but you can enable multi-rail OCP through software.

I believe the (I)'s are set to Multi Rail by default, have to go into the ICUE or Corsair Link software to change it to Single Rail. (Have to have the data cable attached)

 

I know my HXI was and I believe the RMI's are also.

 

The HX's switch was also set to Multi Rail out of the box... Non (I)..

 

 

In the ICUE software: HXI 850 as an example.

How come the Sharkoon SilentStorm is in the top tier, yet there are little to no reviews of the unit around?

 

I can only find a handful of European reviews. One does a teardown and is in Spanish, and they aren't exactly thrilled with missing features. The other one I've read through is in German and very limited.

I kind of agree with you, it should be Tier B based off of this review in the spreadsheet since it appears that it doesn't meet the <3% 12V deviation from nominal for Tier A, unless I'm misreading something (wouldn't be the first time, and won't be the last).

Hi, would like to know how is the quality of that PSU, RAMPAGE RMP-500-80P 500W 80PLUS. Here you can find some links, but they are in Turkish.

I know it would be better if you have more information about the PSU or even have it physically, but any info would be useful. I already know that Rampage PSU's are quite bad since the experiences, but I would like to know about this model specifically.

We know it's platform, we have some detailed reviews on other units using it (TT TP Grand RGB Sync Edition), that's enough for it to be placed in tier A. Although we will move it to low-priority subtier due to concerns over OTP implementation on this platform.

I don't see that in that review, you're just looking at the image with limits of ATX specification it seems.

It's group regulated, that's enough for it to be placed no higher than in tier D but i can't identify the platform so it isn't going anywhere.

Would you recommend the 750W model for a 3080?

If that's your only option out of tier A units, well, why not.

Hello guys, i'm planning to get the NZXT C850 to pair it with the rtx 3080 and an i9 10900 (non-k).

 

I assume this is just a strip down version of the nzxt E850. Based on some of the small review samples that I read online, this psu is built based on the Seasonic Focus platform.

 

So is it a good purchase?

Because if you put the multi-rail configuration in the manual, you end up putting the average user in a doubt-loop.

 

"derr... where do I plug in my GPU?... derr.. where do I plug in my CPU?... derr... How do I 'balance my rails'?...."

 

It's best to "K. I. S. S."

Why is it that the TT TP Grand RGB Sync Ed. is listed in tier C and not tier A ?
