    LukeSavenije got a reaction from Rr42 in Topologies and regulations, what should I look for?   
    Introduction
    This time I'm doing a short bit on a couple of topologies and methods of regulation, and their up- and downsides. A short conclusion will be written below, so you don't have to read the whole thing to make your PSU choice.
     
    Topologies
    - Double Forward
    - Active Clamp Reset Forward (ACRF)
    - LLC Resonant
     
    Double Forward
    Double forward or two switch forward is a single forward configuration with 2, rather than 1 MOSFET to keep the core from running into saturation
     

    (Vishay)
     
    D= Diode
    Q= MOSFET
    T= Transformer
    Cin= Voltage in
     
    Upsides:
    - cheap
     
    Downsides:
    - only scales up to 750w
    - not meant for high efficiency PSUs, as it generally only goes up to 80+ bronze
    - due to hard switching more likely to whine
     
    Active Clamp Reset Forward (ACRF)
    ACRF is a topology close to Double forward, but unlike Double forward is able to continue switching without load being applied, making it more efficient, but still use hard switching. mostly produced by FSP
     
    Upsides:
    - relatively cheap
    - shown to be scalable up to 1000w
     
    Downsides:
    - more expensive than Double forward
    - efficient enough only to meet 80+ gold
    - due to hard switching likely to whine, but less than Double forward
    - mediocre design cause worse transient response
     
    LLC Resonant Converter
    LLC stands for L (inductor), L (transformer primary which is an inductor, too) and C (capacitor). There are two inductors (LL) and a capacitor (C) used which form a resonant circuit . It's made out of 5 parts, in case of a Half-bridge (two switching FETs, transformer, inductor and capacitor).
     

    (Texas Instruments)
     
    Vin=Voltage in
    Q=MOSFET
    Vsq= unipolar square-wave voltage
    Cr= resonant capacitor
    Lm= inductor
    D= Diode
     
    Upsides:
    - efficient enough to (generally) meet up to 80+ Titanium
    - low chance of whining
    - high scaling in wattage
     
    Downsides:
    - most expensive
     
    Regulations
    - Group regulation
    - Double Mag Amp
    - DC-DC
     
    Group Regulation
    I went into group regulation and why it's a problem before here. It uses two coils, a big and a smaller one. The big one will regulate 12v and 5v, while the smaller one will regulate 3.3v. Thus, because the controller tracks both 12v and 5v rails as a whole, in crossload situations (if the load on one of them is high, while the other is low) voltages can go out of nominal (5% tolerance by ATX specifications). Specifically, This is common situation with modern PCs that, first, support C6/C7 sleep states, in which 5V rail get almost no load while 12V rail still loads relatively high, and second, modern PCs generally don’t load 5V rail much even when not in standby, because the only hardware that still uses it are HDDs and SATA SSDs, while 12V rail can be loaded very high, especially with high-end GPUs. This is especially troublesome with fast peaks of modern GPUs, which switch between 50 and 450 Watt multiple times per second. If the output capacitors can not buffer that (particularly in older units), the main regulator has to follow those peaks - altering also the 5 Volt output voltage with it. This leads to strong 5 Volt fluctuations even if there is little load on the rail.
     

    (Jonnyguru)
     
    Upsides:
    - cheap to produce
     
    Downsides:
    - voltage can easily get out of spec due to regulating 12v and 5v together
    - generally doesn't meet c6/c7 sleep states or can’t keep voltages in specs in crossload situations associated with them
    - not recommended for anything beyond an APU system
     
    Double Mag Amp
    Double mag amp is one of the two ways of an "independent" regulation, in this case regulated from the secondary winding, using an inductor to step down the current to either 5v or 3.3v. This is relatively uncommon with the introduction of DC-DC, since this is less efficient. An example where this is still used would be Seasonic's S12iii. Also, it can not work with an unloaded output (luckily a situation that doesn’t occur in a normal PC). The picture below marks the 3 coils compared to two on group regulation, by which you can see it's a double mag amp (in this case the s12 based corsair TX 80+)
     

    (Anandtech)
     
    Upsides:
    - relatively cheap
    - individually regulated
     
    Downsides:
    - needs more load to work, hence generally not coming higher than 80+ bronze
    - low efficiency compared to DC-DC
     
    DC-DC
    DC-DC uses a similar, yet quite different technique to double mag amp. it does share that it uses independent regulation, but does it in a different way. It uses buck step-down converters to lower the voltage directly from 12v to 5v or 3.3v. This is more efficient, and needs less load to function. LLC PSUs can even work properly without any hardware attached on a rail, if necessary. On the picture below i marked a dc-dc converter, in this case on a Seasonic Focus PX
     

    (Relaxedtech)
     
    Upsides:
    - individually regulated
    - very efficient, since it can function with less load
    - most common in modern PSUs
     
    Downsides:
    - most expensive
     
    Verdict:
    In the most ideal situation you get a DC-DC unit with an LLC Resonant Converter, but due to budget this might not always be possible.
    APU system: preferably DC-DC, any topology
    Low-end gaming system: DC-DC, ACRF or LLC
    midrange-high end gaming system: DC-DC with LLC

    LukeSavenije got a reaction from ArdaBarda in PSU Tier List   
    PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 14.8
    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    Judging by your system components, my fear is the PSU. Seasonic units struggle with the Transient responses that a 3080 and 3090 GPU place on them and cause what you're experiencing including random shut downs. Other people on the forum are significantly more smarter than I am with this stuff so ill let them explain it more and either debunk it or confirm.

    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 14.8
    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [2] Corsair SF units with LOT codes from 194448* through 201148* have potential problems, Corsair conducts a voluntary replacement, source.
    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.
    [4] Antec EA Pro Gold has versions for Chinese market made by FSP on competely different, worse, group-regulated platform (tier D). Source #1, #2.
    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 14.8
    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.
    [4] Antec EA Pro Gold has versions for Chinese market made by FSP on competely different, worse, group-regulated platform (tier D). Source #1, #2.
    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [1] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega, 6900 XT and nVidia RTX3080 / 3080 Ti / 3090.
    [2] Corsair SF units with LOT codes from 194448* through 201148* have potential problems, Corsair conducts a voluntary replacement, source.
    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.

    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    LukeSavenije got a reaction from Viniciuspc in PSU Tier List   
    PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 14.8
    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [2] Corsair SF units with LOT codes from 194448* through 201148* have potential problems, Corsair conducts a voluntary replacement, source.
    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.
    [4] Antec EA Pro Gold has versions for Chinese market made by FSP on competely different, worse, group-regulated platform (tier D). Source #1, #2.
    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [1] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega, 6900 XT and nVidia RTX3080 / 3080 Ti / 3090.
    [2] Corsair SF units with LOT codes from 194448* through 201148* have potential problems, Corsair conducts a voluntary replacement, source.
    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.
    [4] Antec EA Pro Gold has versions for Chinese market made by FSP on competely different, worse, group-regulated platform (tier D). Source #1, #2.
    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    LukeSavenije got a reaction from MorphineBear in PSU Tier List   
    PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 14.8
    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [1] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega, 6900 XT and nVidia RTX3080 / 3080 Ti / 3090.
    [2] Corsair SF units with LOT codes from 194448* through 201148* have potential problems, Corsair conducts a voluntary replacement, source.
    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.
    [4] Antec EA Pro Gold has versions for Chinese market made by FSP on competely different, worse, group-regulated platform (tier D). Source #1, #2.
    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    Last Update: 27-07-2021

    Legend :
    Gray - EoL/obsolete and/or otherwise not recommended for purchase.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
    Hyphen / Dash - Series / lineups separator
    Slash - Models (inside one series) separator
    Parenthesis / Round brackets - Model variations (which belong to the same position)
    Square brackets - Additional description (wattage range, part of SKU code, label / casing color, release year)
    Numbers in red colored square brackets - footnotes, see descritptions at the end of respective tiers
    Low priority subtiers - Lack of info (no reviews) or minor issues (see the corresponding tab in the spreadsheet). Not recommended for purchase over any normal priority units.
    Multi-rail units - Not necessarily better than single-rail units but provide an extra layer of protection by having 12V OCP set lower than total capacity, which is especially relevant for very high capacity units (=>1kW). Pay attention to rails configuration when using with high power draw components to avoid shutdowns.

    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, review sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    [2] Corsair SF units with LOT codes from 194448* through 201148* have potential problems, Corsair conducts a voluntary replacement, source.
    [3] Units that don't reach full rated capacity under full rated input voltage range.
    [4] Antec EA Pro Gold has versions for Chinese market made by FSP on competely different, worse, group-regulated platform (tier D). Source #1, #2.
    [5] Corsair HX1200 and HX1200i units with LOT codes in range between 2030* and 2041* may exhibit motherboard compatibility issues, entitled for advanced RMA, source.
    [6] Early EVGA G3 revisions had issues with out-of-spec performance under overload.
    [7] Older Seasonic Focus revisions (made before 2018) had transient sensitivity issues. Some new SKUs are not affected because they were released later (Seasonic Focus GM/GX/PX refreshes, Phanteks AMP, NZXT C/E etc.).
    [8] Seasonic PRIME based units experience shutdowns with RTX3080/3090 (and possibly RX6900 XT) GPUs, especially ones with unlocked power limit like FE and ASUS Strix. It is recommended, if going with such units, to overprovision wattage, 1kW for RTX3080 and 1.2kW for RTX3090, or power-limit the GPU, or performing a 'dirty' fix of disconnecting a pin of 12V V-sense wire from PSU-side connector of 24-pin motherboard cable (courtesy of Jonny Guru). Units based on post-2018 revisions of Seasonic Focus platform and majority of units by other OEMs are not affected.

    [1] MWE V2 units have high ripple issues on very low load also resulting in increased coil whine, fix pending.
    [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
    [3] Units experiencing tripping issues with high transient power draw GPUs like AMD Vega and high-end nVidia Ampere.
    [4] Two versions of Segotep GP-G exist, older v1 version is non-LLC resonant and they're very hard to extinguish externally, hence model tiering based on v1.

    Aggressive looking fan RPM😞
     
     
    The selling price in the area where I live is not attractive. Because with a little extra, it's the same price as the Leadex III.
