Molex as in the company... If you mean website I found it on Amazon aswell as eBay and Newegg.

I know who Molex is.

 

But I don't know why you called that PSU a Molex PSU.  :D

I clarified. I didn't find the exact Molex PSU so I put up a different one.

my terrible laptop: CPU: i5-2450M at 2.60 ghz base (however goes up to 3.30 ghz on any steam game i run. odd.) GPU: integrated Quadro NVS 4200m (garbage. the reason that this is terrible.) 6GB of ram, 300GB HDD. refurbished Dell Latitude Esomething. got it for like 140 bucks on amazon.

There is no Molex PSU.  Molex is a manufactuer of connectors:

Anyhoo...  That Dell PSU is not standard and therefore wouldn't be seen on a tier list for aftermarket PSUs for the DIY market.

I've been in the industry for 25 years and have never seen a Molex brand PSU.

If I had the link to it still, why did I not link the psu?

This is a PSU you have? You can include pictures in your post on the forum if you are able to take a photo of the label on the PSU.

Whatever.  I know you're wrong.  There is no Molex brand PSU.

 

Molex has never made electronics.  They're a company that makes plastics, fiber optics, etc.

 

I think you have the name confused with another company.

 

Dell PSUs have been made by Delta, HiPro (Chicony), Flextronics and Acbel.

raider would probably be placed somewhere around tier c-b if i had to estimate

 

silverstone is confusing the crap out of me rn, so i'm not going to touch on that

Greetings,

I was wondering where the Seasonic Core GC 500W 80PLUS PSU stands in the tier list.

Greetings,

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.

You can identify the protection IC from the photos?

Out of pure curiosity, you don't think that reading pros and cons is easy enough? Do you think that believing random persons opinions is easier? Or reading spec sheet?

what do you mean in spec sheet here?

 

and the problem is that pros and cons don't always say everything, an example would be here

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/evga-supernova-1000-g3-psu,4941-11.html

 

in it's conclusion there's nothing written about it literally dying in opp testing. the conclusion can be helpful, but it's not everything

 

if I'm honest, the best combination of looking for PSUs is asking, looking here and if you can read reviews, but even i can have problems with that sometimes
