Seasonic 520W Fanless VS Evga G2 1300W ?

That EVGA was probably used for cryptocurrency mining so it's probably on it's last legs.

 

And who gets rid of a "perfectly fine" Seasonic X-Series.. never mind a fanless one.... in these times, especially for only $80. 

 

I'm suspicious of both.

I'm looking at two used PSU's since prices have spiked over the last years where I'm from

 

I'm running a 1600x/1080, I'm aware that 1300w is way above overkill, but they are pretty close in price. 

The Evga is 20% more expensive than the Seasonic, but which is the better value?

20% more price is not close, and a hint that the fanless model is really overpriced unless you value absolute silence that much. what price are we talking about exactly?

You never know what heat and load the PSU were exposed to in their former life...

A 1300w PSU will be under very low load, meaning very inefficient. 

 

I don't know EVGA, but Seasonic is a great company. I have a 400w Seasonic fanless unit with Platinum efficiency. Even under heavy load it is very cool. Do you know what case it was isntalled in? The fanless units need to be in a bottom mount so they can convect warm air up into the ventilated case. They really don't like to be top-mounted. the former owner also could have installed it the the wrong way.

 

in some sense, a PSU with unknown history is like wearing used brake pads. That PSU can be near EOL, or not.

Then it's the other way around, the EVGA model is way too cheap. Seasonic one seems reasonable considering how rare fanless models are compared to those with fans, but I dont care about fanless or not myself.
