    Rexper got a reaction from seon123 in [psucultists] PSU Tier List   
    Wow the Corsair VS 2017 is higher quality than the much more expensive EVGA G3 and Seasonic Focus Plus.
     
    Thank God for this tier list. I had no clue.

    Everything in that list can be derived without reviews. Suggesting you don't even need reviews to tier PSUs in this list.
     
    There are so many more aspects I would endeavour before purchasing a power supply.

    Plus years and years of research on power supplies yet alone general electronics.
     
    The same reviewer tested the GX-1000 too - https://quasarzone.co.kr/bbs/board.php?bo_table=qc_qsz&wr_id=313607&page=2
    And the Focus PX (Platinum): https://quasarzone.co.kr/bbs/board.php?bo_table=qc_qsz&wr_id=307283&page=4

    You're writing reviews now?
    I'll save you the trouble of voiding your warranty.
     
    A quick google search found a review of the Seasonic Focus Gx-650, GX-750, and GX-850. It includes brief internal examination, efficiency testing, voltage regulation testing (with crossloads aswell), standby testing, and ripple testing.

    Based on internal photos, it looks like a cut down Seasonic Focus.
    Key difference being a lower quality fan (sleeve/rifle as opposed to FDB), no passive fan mode, 7 years warranty instead of 10, only a single CPU cable, only a single PCIe cable with two connectors, and of course non modular.
    The issues with the Focus Plus involving the effects of over-current I assume are resolved in the Core series.
     
    There are no professional reviews or tests, so we can only guess it's electrical and protection performance.

    Don't judge by brand. Especially when they're using a different OEM than usual.
     
    A video is useless, not results. There is no methodology or hard figures, therefore impossible to compare to other PSUs.
    When I turn my headphones down that EVGA GD is pretty darn quiet ?

    Rexper got a reaction from BiG StroOnZ in [OLD] PSU Tier List 3.0 (Legacy)   
    So a manufacturer that claims to fix a specific issue in the newer model is less reliable than power supplies without anyone testing them that far?
     
    Seriously, that was very high overload ripple testing. Most power supplies on this list haven't been tested like that. Therefore all of them should also drop to tier D.

    Probably better protections, tighter voltage regulation, lower inrush current. Both values are superb, and negligible from eachother, but it goes to prove the G3 isn't any worse.
     
    Oh and Aris' G2 safely passed the OPP test... No. There was no protection test by Aris back then.
    But we do know the OCP trigger points for the 550 G2 12V, 5V and 3.3V are 153%, 173% and 173% respectively... And where's the OTP?!
    Also, only one of Aris' G3s died during OPP testing (the 1KW unit). The other two (550 and 650w) survived.

    Looks like a Focus platform. For reference, here's a review of the Seasonic Focus FM (not Plus):

    Rexper got a reaction from Oalei in S12II Evo 450W   
    The Seasonic S12ii EVO 450 does not use the same platform as the common S12ii/M12ii, nor the Seasonic ST.
     
    Here's what the current m12ii platform (GB) looks like:
    http://www.f14lab.com/2018/01/review-seasonic-m12ii-evo-620-beta.html
     
    And here's the Seasonic ST platform seen from the Seasonic Eco 430w: 
    https://nl.hardware.info/reviews/5934/seasonic-eco-430w-voeding-review-betaalbare-seasonic-voeding
     
    The S12ii evo (GB2) is quite a  new product. I believe it hit markets during 2018. The datasheet, with photos, indicates a completely different platform: https://seasonic.com/pub/media/pdf/consumer/datasheet/S12II-EVO-GB2.pdf
    The only internal shot I could find: https://www.overclockzone.com/forums/showthread.php/3404864-Power-Supply-Guide-(New)?s=7027ff47086a3ff0aa900bcec6a9cc68&p=75154325&viewfull=1#post75154325
     
    It actually looks alot like the new S12iii power supplies (GB3):
    http://www.f14lab.com/2019/05/review-seasonic-s12iii-500550650.html
    It also has identical power distribution with the S12iii.
    Perhaps the S12ii EVO simply lacks the LLC resonant converter.
     
    If true, and the S12iii 450 follows the same topology / platform used in the 500/550/600w versions in the review, it's not such a bad unit. Personally I wouldn't use it as OTP is not specified in the specs.

    If you care about noise output then the RM 2019 is also a better choice than TXM.
     
    It is clearly better than a FSP Aurum CM from Tier B, but I wouldn't say as good as a Antec High Current Gamer M 850W from Tier C or some high-end Raidmax PSU's from Tier D.

    The first review is Vietnamese, not Chinese.
    Although I can't access the second link, both reviewers are respectable and unbiased.
     
    You can use google translate if you can't read their language. Or if you were knowledgeable on the topic of PSUs you can pick out the data from the reviews without reading it.
     
    And I see a lot of people having problems with every PSU out there. Doesn't mean anything when you don't know the exact rates.
     
    Voltage regulation is pretty poor (864mV deviation on 12V line), which is inevitable given the design. Ripple is very average, with the 5VSB out of spec at high loads.
     
    Fan curve doesn't look very quiet.
     
    Build quality is a con... don't buy this PSU for a long-term solution. But atleast it includes surge, inrush and over temperature protection.

    The Pure Power 11 is still uses a forward technology so if your worried about coil whine I'll avoid that one too.
    They, Corsair CXM and pure power 11, actually perform electrically similarly according to reviews by Aris.

    Firstly, there's more reviewers that test protections than Aris.
    EVGA G3 650 @ Toms - 12V OCP / OPP at 143.8% (12V Out of spec), OTP implemented. No damage.
    EVGA G3 850 @ Toms - OPP at 140.58%, OTP implemented high, but no failure.
    EVGA G3 1000 @ Toms - OPP At 127.9%, OTP implemented. PSU died in OPP test.
    EVGA G3 550 @ ComputerBase 12V OCP / OPP at 157%.OTP implemented. No recorded damage.
    EVGA G3 750 @ eTeknix - OPP at at 151%. No recorded damage.
     
    So it seems the only concern with the G3 protections comes from one sample at 1000W. How do you know this wasn't a sample defect? How do you know this isn't isolated to the 1KW model?
     
    And here's all the tests I could find on the G2...
    EVGA G2 550 @ ComputerBase - 12V OCP / OPP at 153. OTP implements though not listed in specs. No recorded damage.
     
    The G2's OPP trip points seem equally as high as the G3s, so who's to say the 1KW version won't fail. And we have a limited sample space, which is expected from a 7 year old PSU.
