PSU Tier List [OLD]

Recommended Posts

It's the in-rush current relay inside the PSU.  It's totally normal.

 

Hoo i see, i thought there was something wrong with my brand new psu.

Btw Jonny, like @seon123 said, there is switch to turn off/on at the back of the psu.

Which one is the better action, always in "on" position or better to turn "off" position when the PC not in use?

is it a guess or what ? i am looking for a straight answer

It's a guess because this list is subjective. It's based off how one person feels about the power supplies. I can't read minds.

Then why are you asking for "tiers"?

 

The power supply isn't complete crap. It atleast comes with a complete EMI filter with surge and inrush protection, and APFC.

Quality is questionable. Though it's components aren't undersized, given the low capacitor quality, small heatsinks, sleeve bearing fan, I don't expect this unit to last past a few years.

 

It's using a low quality, 8-pin protection IC. So it's missing some cruical protections such as OCP. I also didn't see any OTP implemented anywhere. What does this mean? You can't rely on the PSU not taking parts with it when it dies.

 

Electrical performance is what you'd expect from a cheap double forward + group regulated unit. Voltage regulation is mediocre at best. Ripple is poor on the 3.3V rail. Not only is this unhealthy to your components' lifespans, it implies even less time before you start seeing reboots and PSU problems. Especially when paired with a high end CPU + GPU.

And of course, no support for modern CPU sleep states.

 

It's not quiet either, revving past 1000RPM at just a little over 100w load. You'd also expect coil whine when using a modern, high end GPU, as the PSU is using a double-forward design.

 

Not sure why your friend even considered buying this PSU for his 2080ti system...

I advise a new, high quality PSU.

Good morning.

I just changed my PSU to Corsair RMX 550w.

When I turned on my PC, I heard sound like "tek", idk where it came from but it seemed from PSU area.

Is that normal?

you mean a "tek" like in flipping a switch?

Leave the switch on... always.

 

Unless you're swapping out components inside the PSU or moving it to another room.

well thank you so much for this indepth answer i was looking for this kind of reply :D my friend had before i7 8700k + gtx 1060 , then he upgraded to rtx 2080ti , in our country not all products are msrp prices only some brands that signed contracts with  some of our major retail stores for example thermaltake so because our currency is too low 1$= 120 DA buying 137$ powrsuply from thermaltake = 12000 DA  but buying for example EVGA power suply which deos not exist in out country only if some on bought it online will cost around double the price , i know  what you are going to say you must not cheap out on your powersuply if you want to pair it with high end system , but this major retailer in our country is claiming and told my friend that it is more than okay to pair it with his new gpu , and because i couldn't find any other other decent powersuply i bought it last month , paired with i5 8600k + maybe i will get rtx 2070
