PSU Tier List [OLD]

Recommended Posts

7 hours ago, ears_ears said:

B3 should be tier 7 because it's a fire hazard

 

Also the gap with tier 3 and tier 4 is HUGE

It's quite a competitive budget design, and not a fire hazard.

Not that I support the tier list, this PSU is hardly comparable to others in T7, lol.

 

And no, the gap isn't really huge. For example, the Cougar GX-S (tier 3) IMO is hardly better than the EVGA BQ in tier 4. 

The Cougar is loud, no inrush protection, ripple is only OK.

 

No matter who makes this PSU tier list, it will have flaws and controversy. That's a given. You cant sort power supplies into simple categories.

Hello, so the thing is, my old PC (planing to replace whole new pc, in 1 year or so..) is having some problems with PSU. So i'm looking for something dirt cheap, but also kinda good to replace it. Anyone could give me some psu names?

That are cheap, but also silent mainly silent or olsmot no noise?

Budget would be around 40-60$

More psu names the better 😃 Watts i would need 450 if i'm not mistaken? From wall while gaming it's pulling around 380..

 

PC parts:

GPU - gtx 660 oc gaming

CPU - amd fx-8120

Mobo - asrock 970 pro3

1 hdd 5 fans..

2 sticks of ram

 

Thanks for helping in advance. 😘

OPP doesn't work

a) with the Sample Toms Hardware had

b) Computerbase disagrees

c) its possible that they fixed it. Wich should be a relatively easy fix as all you need to do is to get an engineer to calculate some resistors. And change the Resistors in the Pick and Place Machine. That's a rather trivial fix...

Oh and there is also another possible fix: You use better MOSFETs on the Primary side.

 

As its the Primary Swtiching MOSFETs that exploded the input voltage doesn't really matter in this case...

Hi all, is a Seasonic Focus Plus 750W overkill for ASUS Strix Vega 56 and a Ryzen 5 2600? 

No, but rather a formula gold 750W instead if you live in the US.

"Overkill" is a silly word when we get no details.

Do you have the PSU already?
Is a 650/550W cheaper? Why are you looking at 750w?

That system would be fine with a high quality 550w PSU. If you plan to overclock both CPU + GPU pretty far, I'd suggest a good 650w.

 

Remember computer power supplies are designed as "pull". They will only deliver what your system needs. So a higher wattage PSU doesn't mean it will consume more power.

Is anything known about Corsair's 2018 RMx units?

They're top quality of the consumer units (not seasonic Prime. evga P2, corsair ax/hxi series etc. level but also not as expensive) along with the whisper m and the straight power 11. A notch above the EVGA G2/G3, which both are a notch above the Seasonic Focus/Focus+.

Alright, I just noticed them on pcpartpicker and didn't see them on the list. Good to know, thanks.

They're Tier 1 on this list (just labelled as RMx). Not really much difference in quality between the older RMx and RMx 2018 models. Main difference between the two is different connectors and the RMx 2018 is physically smaller on the higher watt units.

Tier 1 - Best

  • Corsair - AX, AXi, HXi, RMi, RMx, SF, grey-label HX (2017), 2017 TXM greater than 650W 

 

They're below the AXi/HXi units (and much cheaper), but above the TXMs. They're good quality units with CWT as the OEM and pretty much what @ears_ears said. They're also good in terms of noise and fan profile as well with a good quality rifle bearing fan. Very quiet units. Comes with 10 year warranty. Only complaints I've heard about them is that they're only single rail and not multi rail.

According to THW the new RMx also comes with 12V OCP unlike the old one

AFAIK the old RMx should have OCP on the 12V, 5V, and 3.3V... Do you have a link to the THW article?

Looks like it's the same situation with the 2018 units using OPP instead of OCP due to them being single rail units. So I was wrong saying it had OCP on either...
 

Quote

Corsair's suite of protection features is complete, aside from OCP on the +12V rail, which is replaced by over-power protection on single-rail PSUs. Active cooling is handled by a 135mm fan with a rifle bearing. Finally, should something go wrong, Corsair covers the RM750x with a 10-year warranty.

No it doesn't.

It's a single rail PSU, it doesn't have 12V OCP. They use OPP.

PSUs with multiple 12V rails means it should have OCP for 12V, unless they're lying (like the case of Seasonic M12ii).

 

It's why the OPP and "12V OCP test" triggered at the same time (wattage) at TweakPC

 

Not sure why the Toms reviews didn't cross out the 12V OCP test. Unfortunately typos aren't too uncommon on Aris' reviews (or atleast TomsHardware).

Hello, which of these psu is better?

 

Corsair CX550M Semi-Modular

be quiet! Pure Power 11 600W Bronze (no modular)
