SO in the High End you have Antec HCP Platniums and next level down you have BeQuiet Strait Power / dark power.

 

Right now on Newegg the Antex is cheaper than the BeQuiet so should I assume that this model is still the case?

Do you think the Seasonic PRIME Snow Silent 550w is worth getting at Newegg's current price?

 

I've been looking for a power supply for a week now, and I'm set on either Corsair or Seasonic, but I missed all the sales.

The Antec PSU is only sold through third party sellers both on Newegg and Amazon (cheaper on Amazon too).

The beQuiet! PSU is being sold by beQuiet! themselves on Newegg.

So it's up to you. If you trust the third party sellers, go ahead and buy it.

You think Rosewill there own brand is worth anything.  Not that I need a 1200 PSU but its on sale at 1/2 off

Both 1200w PSUs that I see by them are Tier B, which is okay, but not ideal. Honestly would rather get a 650w-750w Corsair RM (2019) or 650w EVGA SuperNOVA G1+ for around the same price. Or even for $20 more for the 850w version of the RM.

People, please, make your own threads for PSU recommendations ... But if you're here already, what are your PC specs ? CPU, GPU ? If it's just for gaming then get Corsair RM650x for 611Dh.

@LukeSavenije Any info on G.Skill Ripjaws Gold\Platinum PSUs ? I can't see any info on what they're based on, there's speculations that it's either Seasonic or CWT and it's probably good either way but still.

Edit: and EVGA PQ.

Yeah, it's like they're themselves not really sure if they want to make PSUs, zero coverage in press, no review samples were given apparently.

What about EVGA PQ ?

Hmm,cant find the exact model. It is semi modular with main cables being ketchup and mustard,but the rest are flat black,so i guess its not the oldest one.

it seems to be the one that got linked here by @Juular to my eye, so probably the one i linked as a review

 

so again, good, but dated

Hey folks!


I'd like to ask a few things just to become wiser when it comes to PSU's, but I thought I'd add a little context first. I'm a bit confused and I've been looking at this newer tier list (I used to keep an eye on the older one) trying to understand the criteria, at least generally, for noobs. At a quick glance it seems like the Corsair AX series ranked lower in this one compared to the old list, I'm mostly looking for a 1000W/850W (in case there's no cheaper option for the former) so it caught my glimpse; I was just reading through Aris' reviews on TH and apparently the AX1000 has gotten a pretty recent revision.

 

With that in mind:
- why would Corsair HXi be recommended over the 2018 AX revision for multiple GPU setup?

- how come the V Platinum is a top recommendation now with their new version?

- would a more recent production PSU offer any advantage for Zen2 cpu's, taking into account that amd handles system idle totally different now? Also, would their "race to sleep" implementation have any impact on sub 10% loads when it comes to general efficiency?

 

Thank you for your time!

Because it's multirail, it's not exactly a requirement but good to have, see it as yet another protection feature.

Any relatively modern PSU with independent regulation topology would be the same here. There was a new power saving standard released recently (EpS 2.92 IIRC) but since there's just a handful of lineups that support it yet you shouldn't really choose a PSU based on it's support.

because AX is a single rail, based off the Seasonic Prime platform

because of it being a delta GM, just as the antec

not at this moment, but atx 2.52 has recently been introduced with a higher requirement for sleep states, so we might see something from that soon

@Juular Oh that's good to know, thank you! Initially I wanted to build a TR workstation, but with the crazy prices here on the new threadrippers (and the previous platform not making much sense anymore), it's a little bit too much for an entry workstation. I would probably build around a 3900x or 3950x, leaving options open towards a 3960X when next gen is out, if I reach a point where render times start being really important. I will probably be using most of the SATA ports available (up to 4xSSD 2xHDD) and for the GPU side I'm hoping to drag it out with a 1070 until a suitable replacement makes sense.

But really I would just rather have the system running cool at lower rpm, firstly to avoid noise and second for daily power savings (if I leave UE4 loading environment assets overnight, for example, I really wouldn't want the system to be holding the PSU at full load). Also the chassis isn't great in terms of ground clearance for the PSU socket, it sits barely above ground level so I would assume the fan spinning faster wouldn't be as useful.

@LukeSavenije Interesting, I've read Delta has a reputation for build quality, but I checked some in-depth reviews which pointed out the V1300 isn't doing great in transient response (3.3V) compared to many other alternatives in the same price point (V1000 would be relevant here but it's newer so I can't find any review). So I was wondering why someone would recommend it over a Corsair or EVGA with higher efficiency levels.
Btw, thank you for the detailed reply!

just to make sure... can you link the reviews to me? so i know you didn't accidentally look at the seasonic based one from 2013
