so calling a hardworked project with a core of good info you're too stubborn to understand for is hot garbage? because I'm 17 i can just get a ee diploma real quick, buy over some atx compatible load tester and go test 200 PSUs?

 

I don't think I'm the one without common sense or attitude, i just act bitchy when i think people deserve it

Once again, common sense is extremely hard. Quite clearly it's taking the piss out of it. Try again, get shot down again. It'd be my pleasure.

The PSU tier list + cultists are a joke that nobody should actually take seriously

well, then it's just funny you start talking about sf compared to others...

I don't think he brought up SF though, it was more an issue of portraying very different level PSUs as basically the same, and you made it a manufacturer issue.

ah, you're going to try and feel what hours of work feels like? not just complaining on whatever.

This kinda applies to me, as I'm totally willing to toss out some advice regarding the way the thing is organized but I'd never join this project wholesale.  I don't know your situation, but when I was 17 I had, hah, soooo much more time.  Frankly, most of the people who can really contribute to something like this have jobs, school or both.  With me as an example, after 40 hours of backbreaking hard labor and 25 hours of classes I don't even have time for my own hobby of case/cooler design, let alone helping someone else do pretty much anything.

 

TLDR;

Most of us with useful input and training are already putting in "hours of hard work" and literally don't have the time 

Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

Can confirm GA is Andyson.

 

In addition to what Spotty said, there's also EVGA GT coming in powers of 550, 650 and 750W, made by HEC. The single 12V rails are respectively 549.6W, 648W and 750W.

 

There was also supposed to be 500/600/700 GQ made by Andyson, and 500/600W2 also made by Andyson, but it didn't go anywhere yet.

But deep down we are all waiting for Seasonic to release the Core+ so EVGA can rebrand it as the BS

A PSU with such a name would be wonderful. Especially if it was low key great

Twas doing some research and stumbled upon some peculiarities:

 

#1: Are TXM Golds worth being $40-$70 cheaper than things like Corsair RMx/RMi Gold, Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium, and Be Quiet! Pure & Straight Power despite being ~10 decibels louder?

 

#2: Are Fractal Design Ion+ Platinums any good? Cuz AnandTech seems to say so: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14693/the-fractal-design-ion-760p-80plus-platinum-psu-review/3

 

#3: What are your views on the Bitfenix Whisper, CoolerMaster MWE Golds, and Seasonic Focus+ Golds?

 

#4: I gather that Corsair RMx/RMi Gold, Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium, Fractal Design Ion+ Platinum, and Be Quiet! Pure & Straight Power are all decent & quiet power supplies with noise-levels at full-load under 40 decibels. Is there any particular one you would recommend over the others?

I can't really show it, but... there's also a sequel coming to the 25C-rated, 80Plus-none N1 series... ?

400N2 and 500N2.

 

Oh wait, they actually already are visible on EVGA's Taiwan website!

Just like the predecessors... 75% efficiency, NO PFC at all, and looks like it's not even double forward, but just half bridge.

Also illegal to sell in the EU. ??

I'm not sure what the text says, but why would they mention +12V and put a pic of an input filter coil next to it? ?

 

Check this out, the transformer sticker is censored digitally!

12V single-group loop output complies with the latest ATX12V standard, using 12V hit loop output

EVGA lineup still less confusing than Cooler Master MWE lineup, where White V2 are actually 80+ Bronze, but Bronze V2 is already taken so they just call them White v2?
And original White weren't called White, they were just called MWE, and Bronze V1 was MWE Bronze, now MWE Bronze V2 modular is on it's way too, Cooler Master MWE lineup going to be bigger than most manufacturers got all together by 2-3 times :D

They made EVGA's G2 and G3, among others.  The EVGA orders basically sucked up all of SF's capacity (their factory only has two lines and they outsource PCBA).  

 

Now that EVGA is using mostly Andyson and FSP, Superflower's resources are quite freed up.

Which power supply would fit my choice? I usually just buy a random one from evga or corsair, but this time is for my home server. Currently running a 500W coolermaster unit which works fine, but it lacks sata power. The server is running 24/7, so i guess a high efficiency psu would be nice. Req is minimum 8x sata power. Price doesn't really mather that much, but i guess the cheaper the better :P.  Running unraid and mostly using it for plex, let's say i am a data hoarder.

 

Specs i7 4770k

Asus maximus vii hero

16GB memory

8X HDD, 8tbs mostly (only 6 running atm, because of 6x sata on psu)
