Are gamemax PSUs good?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I’ve been looking into getting a new power supply and there is the gamemax rgb 850 watt psu for $150. On amazon it has five stars but there are only four reviews and only two are verified purchases. It is rated an 80+ Gold certified so I think it’s probably fine but it also seems like a cheap Chinese brand.

Never heard of them, and can't find any detailed information or reviews, which isn't a good sign. 

 

For $150, I feel like you could get a PSU that's known to be good. I'd recommend looking at the tier list posted above by @svmlegacy to get an idea of what's good.

No. I looked them up once. I can't remember who they're rebranding units from, but their units are Chinese firecrackers.


Unimatrix 86 - i7-8086K - GTX 960. It's got a damn GTX 960. I'm tired of 5700 XTs not working out, so it has a fathermucking GTX 960. - AsRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/AC - 16 GB HyperX Fury DDR4-2133 - 1TB Western Digital Black SN750 M.2 NVMe - 500GB Toshiba XG5 NVMe - 3x 1TB Inland Professional - 960GB SanDisk Ultra II - Corsair SF600 - Cougar QBX - Deepcool Gammaxx C40

"Gold" is only an efficiency level and it's often faked.

 

Can you provide a link to the specific PSU?
