Hey guys, i just got a EVGA 1300 P+ Super nova platinum (P/N 220-99-1300-X1) for my i7 7820x - 6900xtxh asrock oc formula. Still having a number of crashes in starcraft 2. Just wondering if this psu is OK or should i look for something else?

What do you mean by crashes? That's very unspecific. Disable any overclocks, test RAM sticks by themselves, etc etc.

 

Since it's an entry level and unreviewed PSU, you could try changing it for a decent one.

"Starcraft2 e_gfxErrorAPIError" CTD have spent hours on this with my old psu that was fine with the old gpu (vega64LQ), (thermaltake 1200 gold) but the new gpu kept doing these errors, and then i started having other games CTD. same as starcraft 2 so i picked up this "entry level" psu for 400$ because it was only thing available at the time. now all the games i play are stable again just not starcraft2. But if this psu is known to be cheap junk like some of evga's other products then i will gladly return it and then get something that works well.

I live in Europe and we have 220V in my country. So its ok then? Or should I just skip that build? Its a really great build for the price, but If Ill have to drop another $100-$150 for a new psu (and still keep the DQMV2L) then it isnt all that great anymore 😄

If it's a prebuilt then it's okay then, could've been worse.

The FETs on the G600 is the same as the one (aka the JCS18N50FH) in the problematic P750GM 😱

Does anyone have experience with the Corsair RM1000x (2021 edition)?

My HX1000 i purchased had ridiculous coil whine, at it appears that some other users have similar issues as well. How is the "upgraded"  RMx-series in coil whine?

coil whine is random. it is not unit based. atleast between hxi and rmx.

I would say that the RMX (2021) is even more prone than the HX to have electromagnetically induced acoustic noise due to burst mode operation in the switching controller and the valley-switching technique in the standby controller. However...

It is a rather random problem.

Sorry to come in here uneducated, But i was planning on stacking my PC in the CPU department, but getting a mid range graphics card such as the 1660 ti. Would it be reccomended to get a midrange PSU such as the corsair CX, or would a higher range PSU be reccomened.

Shit, would not like to go through the return process again.

I know it depends, but in casino there are higher chances of success and lower chances of success 😛 

What about the EVGA SuperNOVA G6 1000W?

Looks like Gigabyte or (MEIC) has fixed the OPP of the P750GM and P850GM...

Yeah, it's just that it looks like Gigabyte has been selling both old an new revision simultaneously, we need to wait for GN to compare their units that blew-up with what Aris showed, because they had some past the manufacturing date this new revision starts from.

Funny it seems other than some slight rearranging of smd components around that IC, the only change appears to be a 3.8K resistor changed to 3.2K.  Just that subtle change might turn a bomb into a decent B tier PSU.

The holes now in the PCB could keep the resistors cool enough to reduce thermal drift.

Be Quiet! Dark Power 12 1000W Modular PSU LINK . 

Q1.) Can I plug this in to a B450 ASRock motherboard?

Q2.) Can I plug this in to normal sat SSD's?

Q3.) Can I plug this in to 3 separate 8 pin GPU connectors?

Q4.) What are those 3 and 5 Volt connectors that I am not gonna be able to use if I buy this PSU?

Q5.) Do you have a recommendation from be Quiet's lineup who is 1000W same price category like 220 GBP, super safe, efficient (Platinum, Titanium)?

Q6.) I am also thinking about to rather get the STRAIGHT POWER 11 1200W Platinum what does it missing VS the Be Quiet! Dark Power 12 1000W Modular PSU (that is a bit more beneficial on the log run to upgrading CPU and GPU, because these are 10 year warty PSUs but PC components seems to be costume more and more electricity)

Q7.) Why the PSU side plugs are not just standard 8 pins to deliver power to 8 pin GPU connector?

 

BACK STORY

  • I am looking at buying a Be Quiet! Dark Power 12 1000W Modular PSU LINK . 
  • My issue is that I look at it and as it is in this LTT video , It seems like it is only having 12V connectors.
  • I ma just not sure If I can plug those in to MY mother 20+4-pin ATX seems ok,  but in the video he mentions "Physical compatibility and electrical incompatibility that some connectors originally 3 or 5V".
  • The PSU side connectors looks very strange to say the least because I need 3 x 8pin connectors to my GPU and I might as well add something extra down the line. It is crucial to get 3 lines of power cable to the GPU because my previous PSU's GPU side cables have melted in 2 of the 8 pin sockets so I just want to make sure that it can safely get that 450 W power + peaks. (That PSU was shutting out orange sparks on the back when have just plugged in without any PC connectors hooked up to the pc EVGA 1000 GQ, so it goes to the trash. I have tested my system with another PSU and it works fine and the GPU also looked that it works fine while I could not push it too much because that other PSU wasn't not that powerful)
  • It is also important that it has a very safe "fireproof" operation and in all end every case the PSU dies instead of all my other PC components (short circuit protection, over current protection) because my pc is 24/7 on it handle a lot of workloads from programing to video editing ...

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)

Hi there, the legend said for gray, green, gold and blue. What about the PSUs that the text colored in Black?

Black just means "normal" as in, there isn't anything that makes it stand out from the others in their tier.

Two somewhat different platforms used across wattage range, there are reviews on one and not on the other.
