the tierlist is no longer being supported on LTT.
However, Luke is supporting the list on his own network 

 https://cultists.network/140/psu-tier-list/
 

 

I see, thanks for the information.

An updated version of the list exists. Use the spreadsheet in the first post to find it.

 

thanks

A bit confused as to some of thermaltake entries.  Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB Gold is a low priority A tier whereas the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB Gold Sync Edition is a C tier.  I do see that their product codes are different but wouldnt their parts be basically the same (besides maybe an rgb chip to sync with the mb).  Wouldnt that make them both C tier?

 

Even further, looking at the list that the spreadsheet links to (https://cultists.network/140/psu-tier-list/) the gold sync edition is A tier on it? What caused it to jump up?

No, welcome to Thermaltake.

We assume that the problem with the OTP it was in tier C because were fixed so we moved it up because people were asking about it a lot.

"No, welcome to Thermaltake."

 

That seriously made me laugh.  I was asking because I actually have the non sync version and was thinking the relatively high inrush that the sync version had probably applied to it as well and thus the rating.  Having them both in the A tier helps my peace of mind a bit.

Guys does anyone have any more info on this new PSU from Blitzwolf?

 

Its called Blitzwolf BW-CP1 and they have a 400w or 600w version. The price is really great but really curious if anyone tested it yet?

 

Blitzwolf is known to make great products at a budget price.

Yeah, perhaps not this one. But i'm sure there are no reviews, and if the pictures they've provided there are of real product, it looks like something from the OEM Zalman usually employs for their budget PSUs, but there are no actual reviews on them either and from what we've seen so far they so far don't look like good products either.

If you want a PSU recommendation then please create a new thread, providing your build specs, usecase, country/retailer links and budget for PSU.

Not this one.  And now everything with their name on it is called into question because people don't know what to look for.

Just wanted to say I've had my Super Flower Leadex V Gold Pro 850 for a few weeks now.

 

I know the real test is how long it will last, but so far I love it.

 

It's silent, I've never been able to hear the fan. It's very small (130MM). And best of all it fixed all the issues I was having from the Gamemax 850W PSU. No more jet engine when gaming, and Red Dead 2 dose not crash anymore unless I downclock and lower the power limit of my card.

 

I could tell a difference in quality between the two just from the included power cable (the one that goes from PSU to the wall). The one with the Super Flower is noticeably thicker than the one that came with the Gamemax.

 

I'll open up the Gamemax and post a few pics for fun later today.

Hi, i haven't heard about UTechSmart & Hiearcool PSUs, what do you think? I found them a few weeks ago while shopping on Amazon during break.

They're virtually unknown brands in the PC Components space and they're usually known for their USB Hubs and Mouses:

UTechSmart PSU: Here

Hiearcool PSU: Here

 

Since they're strange brands to be selling a PSU, my best guess is that they're based off some Segotep PSUs (The UTechSmart's 80Plus rating is tied to a Segotep PSU and the Hiearcool PSU has the same specs as a 750w Segotep PSU)

But that's all i know about these PSUs.

i like colorful led lights

only interest

really please don't question me

Yes, they are. Neither claims OTP so tier C LP.

Weird though, because the Segotep PSUs the Hiearcool and UTechSmart PSUs are presumably based off does claim OTP:
750w Segotep PSU Here

850W Segotep PSU Here

 

The model number for either of them aren't listed in the 80plus database, however I think that's because the model numbers used publicly aren't the same as the ones they used internally, but then the most recent 750w ATX PSU registered by Segotep in the Database is from 2011, and that put me in a tail spin.


These Segotep PSUs have the exact same listed specs and sticker design as the Hiearcool and UTechSmart PSUs so i'm about 85% sure they're similar models albeit the 2 "rebranded" PSUs come with RGB. Maybe they downgraded some things on the rebranded models, i wouldn't know, i didn't buy any of them.

 

sorry for rambling

 

edit: wait i don't even think the 2011 Segotep 750w PSU is the same 750w ATX PSU they're selling today. It doesn't seem modular and it's input current is slightly different (though mind you i know nothing about psus so please call me out on my bluff if that's just something that varies between psus), im confused

Yeah, they have a few different variations.

Here is the inside of the Gamemax RGB 850 I have thankfully replaced with a FAR better PSU. Just thought I 'd share for fun. Anyone here able to comment about just how bad the quality is by what you see? I tried to get a clear pic of the MOSFET's but couldn't.

@sean8102Can you take a shot of that IC under input receptacle transient filter ? Looks like one of the 4-pin supervisor ICs judging by the space for 8-pin variant, and such, the unit probably therefore lacks any OCP as there are no DC-DC controllers with backup protections. Although we've tiered all Gamemax PSUs to tier E anyway so it's not like that would change anything.

How good is aerocool's cylon/cyclon power supply?
For which PC is it advisable to use a cylon/cyclon as a power source?

Hey, Take this with a grain of salt, but I had an MWE (v1) gold 80+ 750w cooler master psu, it started randomly shutting down when I was using my PC,  I checked it with a crap red bare bones Oscilloscopes (the stuff you find on for 22$). I set the ms (i think that's the measuring speed right?) to like 1ms or something I'd see spiked up to 12.5v which is pretty crap.

 

it also did cause me a ton of issues so I had to buy a new one (with the GF1 ARGB everything works perfect). but i'm only a hobbyist who hasn't made anything electronic in a bit.

 

Maybe you can add it to the potentially dangerous or low quality stuff?

I was testing my psu, listed on tier d 😛 but... I ran occt psu test, power consumption - 560W. What should I check to know if it's safe? Voltages are neccesarry, but what else? Home tests, without fake load. Besides that, my X299 mobo provides a lot of voltage and current sensors - anything worth checking there?

 

PS. There aren't any tests for this psu, so internals are a bit of mystery there... Maybe there's something more than producent claims.

A Thermaltake Smart SE 630W?  You don't check that "it's safe".  You just replace it.  😄

TBH I don't have money for that at this moment. I've tried to check, while gaming it won't go past 350W and I think that it won't break now, but... I know that I need to replace that. I just wanted to try and check something, since there's no review about this psu. Just may be worth checking how bad it is.
