Is the MSI A-GF 850w multi-rail or single rail?

Almost all (if not all, can't remember exactly) the newer PSUs aren't actual real old-school multi-rail.

On the OP's own website (Tier list REV 16.0) the MSI unit is now a single rail but is multi-rail in here...

It's just a case of, a single-rail divided into multiple pseudo-rails. Not really relevant, on it's own, but you do need to read the manual, check the webpage, read a review for limitations.

 

For the MSI A-GF 850W that just means you can't have 4x PCI_E connectors plugged in and used with 2x EPS connectors plugged in (into the graphic cards and motherboard. Max is ~5. But that's connectors and the PSU has 18AWG cables so you shouldn't be plugging the pig-tails anyway with 3080 TI/3090/3090Ti/6900XT/6950XT and other 300W+ models.

 

Specifically it's no problem you can have 4x PCI_E cables plugged into the 3 PCIE and 1 VGA sockets on the PSU, and the have the CPU cable plugged on the PSU side.

 

Just that you need to have only 1 EPS plugged on the motherboard side if you're maxing out GPU connectors with multiple GPUs (or when using the new Gen 5 12VHWRP adapters). Having 3 Cables used and 3 plugged into the GPU is fine. It's just now that we're talking about a 5th connector plug-in, that's the last one, can't do a 6th connector plug-in.

Aris explained it on his review of the 750W unit:

And same like on Seasonic website, there's guidelines on the MSI page for the 850W psu and in the manual for how to use the cables with high wattage cards:

So the only options in my country that are not overpriced to high heavens that are highly rated are

 

Antec | Neo Eco Gold [yellow-label]

 

Huntkey | MVP K - WDK-K

 

Anyone with more insight to either of these? Theres hardly any reviews on them but they must be in B tier for a good reason right?

Im only using a 1650 but I desperately need a decent psu since my area has a lot of blackouts and power irregularities

Did I just create a profile in LTT's forum because something ticked me the wrong way?
Yes.
Was it about how you measured/tested a certain PSU?
Yes.

 

The EVGA 600B are the most quite powerful, endurable and reliable PSUs I had for a while and always suggest to clients to buy them. I suggest them from my own experience.
This PSU ran through outtage through outtage and fires and hells. And it's still as faithful as day one and only a few days ago the cooler whined reminding me that I was due for a cleaning and lubrication and that I couldn't push it any longer than I was already doing (the maintenance in general). I've seen a 600B dealing with a 10xxx Intel and a 3060RTX running -as- smooth and cool (no overheating), though I wouldn't dare adding mechanical drives into it. Gladly it was just an ALL-SSDs computer. I'm aware it might not be enough for a 3090, barely for a 3070 and obviously, not suited for a SLI-enabled system (unless you are deaing with lesser cards).

So, after some TL;DR; text and reviving an old thread, my question is...

How did you come up that this PSU is only suited only for low, cheap, iGPU-only systems, when from my own experience is a good cheap PSU suited for a very respectable system...?

Going through the GTX 9xx fiasco and GTX 1xxx on a GTX 760 while using this PSU untill I moved onto a GTX 1660. So... quite a vet PSU it is nowdays.

Is that rhetorical? The methodology is easily accessible in the first post, and well documented.
