PSU Tier List 2.1 - LEGACY

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is a legacy list, based on the PSU Tier List 2.0. It will rarely be updated. It is meant to be used as a ranking for legacy units only.

 

All information below is opinion based on fact. Units may be bumped down due to the following: missing protections, group regulation, bad electrical performance and exploding.

List is subject to change at any time, due to change in sources available.

Sleeve bearing fans will not be placed above Tier 3, and when bumped are marked with 3 gold asterisks. Group regulated units will not be placed above Tier 4, and when bumped are marked with 3 blue asterisks.

 

This is a refresh of the PSU Tier List by @STRMfrmXMN who is no longer logging in. Credit to them for the initial list as it existed on 24 October 2018 when this thread went live.

This is all VERY preliminary and is sourced directly from a old doc I have. Most of it will be fixed by tommorrow, since currently I'm sleepy and can't think right.

I've placed it in Tier 1b since it's very similar, performance speaking to the Focus Plus, which is the benchmark unit for that tier. 

Ripple is similar (3.3V is a bit high a the Mistel though) and voltage reg from what I can tell with my EXTREMELY sleepy eyes is somewhat similar too.

I'll look again tomorrow to see if I'm just seeing things.

 

Tier 1a is exclusively for units which go above and beyond, so I've just bumped the G2 out.

Sleeve bearing designs are ok with something like a 5 year warranty. Tier 3 units are fine.

Be quiet Pure Power 10 400W + is higher than Corsair CX, yet the CX is better in most aspects. Is that purely because of its quietness?

They both have rifle bearing fans.

Units may be bumped down due to the following: missing protections, group regulation, bad electrical performance and exploding.

Even if they were different, all the list considers is

 

That part was copied out of the old one from a while back. Didn't see it, and I'll fix it now.

Tier 1a (PRIME)

Tier 1b  (Focus Plus)
Tier 2 (GQ)
Tier 3 (CX)
Tier 4 (BQ)
Tier 5 (VS)

Tier 6 (VS)

Tier 7 - Worst

I really do not like to mention Manufacturers Series after the Tier Number.

You should name it different.

 

For example:
Tier S: The best of the Best, Sir.

Tier A: High End

Tier B: Lower High End/Entry Gold

Tier C : Mid Range, good value

Tier D : Higher System Integrator Level

Tier E : Lower System Integrator Level

Tier F : MEGUMIN! Class. Not worth lookin at.

VERY initial, kinda like a beta at this point.

 

I'll change it to something different later on, but for now I'm putting the benchmark series after the name so people stop screaming at me.

Still working it out... as seen above and in the post as "EARLY VERSION: WIP"

 

I'll add a third location where it reads it doesn't replace the original yet.

 

IMO still better than the other new one which is way biased towards EVGA.

So anything tier 4 and below are the ones to avoid right?

Depends on the build. For a high-end gaming system, I'd stay in tier 1. For cheapo low-power flip builds, I practically vomit EVGA 500W 80+ white units, and have never had a problem.


Sabre - i7-8086K - MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X - AsRock Z370 Fatal1ty Gaming K6 - 32GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 - 250GB Western Digital Black M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0x4 - 1TB Inland Professional SSD - 960GB SanDisk Ultra II - 4TB Seagate Barracuda - Corsair RM650i - Fractal Design Meshify C White TG - Noctua NH-C14S

 

Senketsu - Ryzen 5 1600 - MSI GTX 1050 Ti LP - Gigabyte B450 AORUS M - 16GB "OEM Special" craptastic DDR4-2400 with a stunning green PCB - 500GB Dell M.2 NVMe SSD - Silverstone SF450 - ABS R206-ITX (worst/best case ever) - Wraith Spire

 

Banzai - i7-6700T - MSI RX 550 LP - Gigabyte GA-B150N Phoenix - 16GB HyperX Fury DDR4-2400 - 240GB Crucial M500 - Seasonic 300W Server PSU (loud af) - HP Slimline s3200n chassis - Rosewill RCX-775-LP (loud af)

 

Harvey Dent - Pentium G3258 - MSI GTX 750 Ti LP - ASUS H81M-C - 16GB Patriot Viper DDR3-1600 - 480GB SanDisk Ultra II SSD (Windows 10) - Vaseky 64GB mSATA SSD (Windows XP) - Corsair SF600 - Athenatech A100BB - Arctic Alpine 11 Plus

 

Laptops: NuVision Encite Book 12+, ThinkPad X250, ThinkPad X61t (retired), some stupid Dell pile of crap for work

Those and the Antec VP-450 power most of our office builds depending on which one's on sale that day.  We've only had one fail (an EVGA 500W), and that was simply from a bad power-on circuit.  The 500W also powers my gaming PC at home without any trouble, although it's not exactly my PSU of choice for that kind of use.

Tier 2 (GQ)

  • be Quiet! - Pure Power 10 400W+ 

Pure Power 10 under 400W is missing but it was Tier 5 in the previous list. What's the difference exactly? Just checked the prices and 400W is 50% more expensive than 300W. Worth paying to be safe even for office PCs with like 200W consumption?
