PSU Tier List [OLD]

Recommended Posts

lil bit confused. about efficiency please explain?

Efficiency is the factor of converting one form of energy in other forms you want to use.

the law of energy conservation says that energy can not be lost, only converted in other forms.

 

The other forms are, in this case, one Voltage into other voltages. That is the form of energy we want.

Another example is a motor that converts some form of Energy into movement energy.

Or take for example a lightbulb, wich converts electrical energy in light-engy (and the old incadescent mostly heat)

 

What is normally said to be the loss is the form of energy that are annoying and you do not want - and often cause you trouble. 

In general its mostly heat.

If my old psu had 60-70% efficienty does tha mean 40-30% of power pulled of wall goes into "heat" aka i lose it?

You don't loose it, but it is mostly heat, yes.

You also need a bit of energy for the magnetics in the PSU as well.

 

But the 60-70% Efficiency is something we haven't really seen in somewhat OKish PSU for like 15 years or so. In 2005 or 6 those were mostly gone. 

You only see them in low cost d

And modern psu that has 90%+ efficient i lose only 10% of power draw?

Correct, 

With 90% of efficiency, only 10% of the Wattage consumed gets converted to things you don't want.

 

8 hours ago, PukiDuiki said:

So generally speaking, my system actually would be pulling only "250w" but because of old psu that had 60-70% it was over 350w? 

Correct.

If it is in that 60-70% area, wich should be rather unlikely.

 

8 hours ago, PukiDuiki said:

Meaning if i get "new good psu" i will lose less power in "heat" and such my system could be pulling only abouth "280w" instead of that "350w"?

🤔🤨🤔

In theory, that is possible.

But Unlikely. With a decent "Named Brand" PSU of the last couple of years, we're talking usually about like 80% or so minimum under normal loads (20-100%).


For example with 80% Efficiency and 280W Load on the PC Side, we're around 350W Primary.

With 90% Efficiency that shrinks to 311,1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111W

My pc was prebuilt from store, and i bought it 6 years ago.. Who knows how old the psu was..

Thanks alot for explaining, will be going with Pure Power 11 400w unit then :)

Should I still follow this tierlist or should I check the new tierlist 3.0? o.O

It's still accurate, just not updated with new PSUs anymore. Yes, the Aurum PT is very good

Good choice for what? What's your system and future intentions? Do you care about efficiency, noise, modularity, lifespan, etc. What's the price?

If you can make an account, and post in the forums, you shouldn't follow any tierlist. For a much more reliable recommendation, post a thread containing information I described earlier.

 

Or learn the basics of how the PSU operates, understand what aspects make a PSU "better" and what it does for your system. Then read some professional reviews, such as https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/FSP/PT-1200FM/

 

The Tier List 3.0 is hardly different to this one.

You can't have an accurate PSU tierlist. They're all subjective without any specific criteria.

I'm currently building a new desktop. The desktop is gonna be on the floor most of the time.  My specs I intended to get is a 9700k, a rtx 2080ti, 8gbx2 ram. Price is around Aurum PT 1200's price range. Around 200 usd 

I prefer the psu to be modular so I dont have too many wires to manage around. Noise is not really a concern I think, its gonna be on the floor most of the time, lifespan around 5 years and efficiency shouldnt be an issue? I just want a top tier psu that wouldnt fail on me haha.. Thanks! :D

You really don't need 1200Watts then. 550 or 650 at most would be fine

Hmm.. cuz I thought the price between 1200w and 750w arent that much of difference... My local ( Malaysia ) store here Aurum PT 1200w is RM 869 while a 750w Evga P2 is RM750.. So I thought it doesnt make much of a difference, so I thought getting the one with more power will be a much better choice?

There is pretty much no benefit at all going with a much higher wattage unit than you actually need (550-650w). It will run louder and your system components won't be protected very well as the OCP (if it has that) will be set much higher. 

 

Quality > Quantity. ;)

Aurum PTM is OK so far.

EVGA I'd avoid for product political reasons.

Ledex II is OKish, if you don't mind fan noise

Thermaltake iRGB depends. Some are nice, some are shit.

 

Silverstone Strider Platinum is nice as well...

 

Seasonic I don't like for various reasons (like rather high fan Speed, the selling of the S12II in 2019)...

Are there any brands that you would recommend wholeheartedly? :o 

Oh ya, I do have Be Quiet! Dark Power 11 in my local store as well.. 

I seriously have no idea what to pick for PSU.. ._. 

( You can say I'm like trying to aim for Tier 1 PSUs hahahaa.. Just looking at Tier cuz I dont know anything about PSU )

Outside of political reasons for EVGA, would you recommend EVGA P2 750w or Silverstone Strider Titanium 700/800w?

Can someone confirm to me that I need a PSU with Double 4+4/8-pins connector for overclocking the i9-9900K?

 

Also, will a be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W suffice for overclocking this system?

Yes, you will need a PSU with 2x 8-pin EPS connectors (power for CPU). And yes, that PSU would be fine for that system. Just make sure it has 2x 8-pin EPS connectors. It's a bit excessive in terms of wattage, but there aren't many PSUs of lower wattage and good quality with dual CPU power connectors. 

 

Personally, I'm going with a Corsair RM850x for a dual-CPU, dual-GPU system I'm currently building. I don't need the wattage, but I do need the connectors. ;)

Yes, you will need a PSU with 2x 8-pin EPS connectors (power for CPU). And yes, that PSU would be fine for that system. Just make sure it has 2x 8-pin EPS connectors. It's a bit excessive in terms of wattage, but there aren't many PSUs of lower wattage and good quality with dual CPU power connectors. 

Thank you!! This has been really helpful :)

So, I have been thinking about PPT tinkering with my Vega 56 (decided not to go with Crossfire due to cost and lackluster optimization by lazy developers) and I kind of want to use this as an excuse to upgrade my PSU. 
 

So far the only option I have found is Whisper M 650W, as it has 4 PCIe connections and uses multirail design. I can get it for ~€88.
Question is, how hot/loud would it get during use, considering that Vega can draw quite a bit of power? 

And of course, Straight Power 11 750W is another option, but it's noticeably more expensive and frankly, with PSU of that size I might as well go with Crossfire after all


EX build: Liquidfy C+... R.I.P.

Current build:

Meshify C

Ryzen 5 1600x @4.0 GHz/1.4V

Gigabyte X370 Aorus Gaming K7

Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 GB @3200 Mhz

Alpenfoehn Brocken 3 Black Edition

Sapphire Vega 56 Pulse

Intel SSD 660p 1TB 

be Quiet! Straight Power 11 750w

Is a bit louder under low load, though still in the OK area.

About the same as full load, quieter under lower load.

That's better than I expected. Problem is, it will take 2 weeks to get it from the only store that has one.. It would be faster to ship one from UK/ Germany, but downtown due to warranty might be bit extreme. 

What about RM650i? I read some reviews, but it just left me more confused – it seems like it has switchable multi-rail design? Like you can turn them off and on? I mean, why would you want to turn it off, you just lose the OCP, right?

You can turn it off bEcAuSe SiNgLe RaIl iS bEtTeR. 

The default is multi rail, so if the users don't download the software, they're fine.
