Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am upgrading my pc and i need a better power suply, i was having in my mind Seasonic focus gold +  but it dissapeared from all shops in near me (Croatia) so i started looking for another one, SAMA FORZA 750W 80PLUS GOLD  seems cool but i cant find any reviews or anything about it. Does any1 here know anything about it?

Thanks

EVGA or Corsair are generally considered very decent, so you could get for example the EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 or the Corsair AX750. Although, any PSU from the two top tiers is fine.

Sama Forza 750W is a very well performing power supply with pretty reliable components, but if you're looking for power supply advice you should show us your build and paste a few links to computer stores in Croatia. You're probably not building a HEDT desktop with two or three graphics cards, so you don't need 750W.

Apparently the same platform as the Vivo 24K. Although the SAMA does advertise better main capacitors, and Capxon (which they spelled "caxpon") on the secondary(?). There are some reviews of the 650W version of the 24K. Not very good performance, not very quiet, sleeve bearing fan and a short warranty. Different caps on that thing. Couldn't find anything about the warranty or fan on SAMA's website. 

Probably a pass for that one.

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Agreed but keep in mind that both EVGA and Corsair make really crap low end units. Don't buy PSUs by brand because it's often the same manufacturer but the company slaps their own sticker on


That's an F in the profile pic

True, that's why I've said that OP needs to limit his search to the top two tiers (top three at most) of the list. :)

What are you powering? Odds are, you could power it with a 450W PSU without issues

The Seasonic Focus is indeed a very decent power supply. And 550 W should be sufficient depending on what you want to power.

No, that one is not a decent power supply.

I suggest choosing a PSU from the top two tiers from the following list:

 

Where do you get your information from?

Nothing wrong with Sama Forza.  But I agree with others that OP does not need so much power.

@jonnyGURU you are looking at 800w titanium version, thisi s 750w gold 

He also reviewed our 650W version, which uses the same board layout as the 750W: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=506

 

The performance of Sama's Forza platform is actually excellent for the price.  Our own PSU would've scored over 9 if we had made a couple minor changes.  The failure rate has also been extremely low (even lower than our own expectations!).  Honestly, the only reason we stopped carrying them was because of poor sales.

Especially the Heatsink...

Different layout, same shitty Primary Thing, still a pretty good design, nothing wrong with it.

Just get the Forza 750W. Or a lower wattage version of it.

(I know that the Forza is slightly different)

 

The Heatsinking worries me, especially for the gold version, it's so restrictive on airflow, which necessitates higher quality components, an 85C Teapo bulk cap does not classify as "higher quality".
