The friendly battle between Jay & Steve? Yeah it's entertaining watching the battle between the two and how they're leap frogging each other and going down different paths.

Likes of kingpin and der8auer will always end up taking the top spots in the end, but they seem to have provided plenty of advice and help to Jay & Steve as well.

I kinda want Jay to team up with Kingpin and Steve with De8bauer (like a collab or something) that'd be neat

Is there really any info on the newer Seasonic's Prime Snow Silent units? Do they fall where their older Snow Silent brother did?

It's the Prime

But is it really silent as it's name indicates, cause fellow members here helped me find out that Primes are not really silent when they exit hybrid mode.

 

Edit: I mean can it match be quiet in terms of noise?

probably not.

If you want it quiet, get a quiet (be quiet?) unit.

 

I don't get why you try to aviod the good stuff from one of the last PC-Component manufacturers that are remaining in Germany...

Not sure if it's based on the Prime or the Prime Ultra. If it's based on the Prime Gold or Platinum, it won't be particularly quiet. If it's based on the Prime Ultra versions, it will be quite quiet.

No, i really don't try to avoid that(i always go for European products if i have the choice). Only thing i am skeptical about is that the dark power pro is semi-modular which is not something bad at all but i would like to use white cables. It's more of an aesthetics issue. And i think seasonic gives bigger warranty if i m not mistaken.

Then get the Straight Power 11. That is fully modular. Problem solved.

Just something:

 

The Long Warranty is not that important.

You have to read the terms!

 

Wear and tear is usually excluded.

Selling it on the used marked is excluded (even for Seasonic)

You probably have to send it to Germany anyway...

 

Here the Terms:

https://seasonic.com/support

 

 

Here the Money quotes:

  • The product was not damaged due to normal wear and tear or acts of nature, such as lightning, flood or fire.

  • The product is used according to their intended usage, which is to power PC systems:
  • Using the power supply for mining or powering any other electronic systems that are not personal computers will negate the warranty of the power supply.
  • If the power supply is modified or used in an unusual ambient environment or in any other way that falls outside of the boundary of Intel’s current ATX specification – including cooling requirements, connector configuration and pertinent electrical and signal timing specifications, the warranty might be void.

 

That more or less means that the Manufacturer can say "naa, not Warranty, you used it outside intended usage"...

I thought of that. It would be also about 70 € less to go for the straight power. Does their efficiency difference(if there is any at all) make that much of an impact? Or there are more differences there?

Not a significant impact unless you run your PC 24/7

There's really not much difference between the two. Here are the efficiency ratings for each Be Quiet unit taken from the Be Quiet website (because I can't be bothered looking up independent reviews).

Straight Power 11 550W

Quote

Eco / Efficiency

80PLUS certification Gold
Efficiency (%) at 230V, 20% load 91.4
Efficiency (%) at 230V, 50% load 93
Efficiency (%) at 230V, 100% load 91.2


Dark Power Pro 11 550W

Quote

Eco / Efficiency

80PLUS certification Platinum
Efficiency (%) at 230V, 20% load 91.6
Efficiency (%) at 230V, 50% load 94
Efficiency (%) at 230V, 100% load 92



So as you can see there's going to be less than 1% difference in terms of efficiency between the two units, and at lower idle loads (20%) only 0.2% difference in efficiency. They're both very efficient units, and aren't going to make any noticeable difference to your power bill even if you were running both 24/7.
You'll save a lot more money by saving the 70 Euros and going with the Straight Power 11.

Hello, is there any update on the topic about the Asus Rog Thor Platinum PSU 850/1200 watts?

Also what's the actual difference on the Corsair RMx 850 ( 2017 ) and the new ( 2018 ) edition? 

I got myself the Corsair 2018 RMx 850 gold version

The Thor is the Prime Platinum. You can find a review on Tomshardware. 

Practically, the difference for the RMx is that the 2018 is shorter for the higher wattage versions.

Yes, size.  

For performance and noise, they're practically the same. They use a different platform, since they're shorter.

Also the gap with tier 3 and tier 4 is HUGE

Is there any difference between rm550x and rm750x both 2018 version other than wattage itself, im thinking like extra protections on large unit or something like that.

 

550w should be enough for my build rx 580 + ryzen 2200g/2400g (havnt decided yet) i plan to upgrade CPU to 3000 series as they come out, same with amd GPU.

Price difference between PSUs is about 30 euros so im leaning more towards rm550x but if larger unit gives better protection/is more durable i wouldnt mind spending extra for that.

Protections are the same on both units.
Really the only difference between the two you will notice is the wattage and the number of connectors that it has. The RM550x (2018) has 1x 8pin EPS, 2x PCIe 6+2pin, and 6 SATA connectors. The RM750x (2018) has 2x 8pin EPS, 4x PCIe 6+2pin, and 9 SATA connectors.

Since the RMx lacks multi rail, if anything, the 550W offers better protection.

As mentioned, the extra connectors is the main benefit. The 550W only has a single PCIe cable with 2 connectors, so if you're looking at a high power GPU, you might want a different PSU.

thx for quick reply guys, is rx 580 considered high power GPU that would warrant something stronger than 550w? 

I dont plan on doing any OC or SLI, and would probably have up to 3-4 SSD/HDD so connector wise rm550x should be enough.

What kind of card would need more than single PCIe cable with 2 connectors?

No. The spec for an 8 pin connector is 150W. That's what you find on the PSU side. After the 75W from the PCIe slot, you have to have a >225W GPU to be out of that spec. That's what I consider to be high power. That would include the highest end Nvidia cards and Vega.

The RX580 is more towards mid range in terms of graphics cards. For "high powered cards" it's stuff like the Vega 56/Vega 64, Radeon VII, GTX 1080Ti/2080Ti, Titan, etc. Stuff that needs 2x 8pin PCIe connectors.
The RM550x will be fine for your system.
