Apevia ATX-PR600W Prestige 600W

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NWZQX1J/

Yeah, i tried to find smth about it some time ago, found nothing but that it's some Andyson DC-DC platform, so it's probably lower tier B at least but can't say anything for sure.

Hey I’m building my first system with the following components:

-I7 9700K (will OC sooner or later)

-Gigabyte Auros Pro mobo

-Nvidia 1070 for now but will upgrade to 3xxx series

-1 SSD NVME and a HDD ( can add 1 ssd later) 

-3 fans starting out but can go upto 5 or an AIO cooler and 3 fans in total

 

Anyways, Initially I was going with EVGA GD 750W but now I see the Gamdias in the same tier and I’m also able to get the 

Kratos P1-750G for CAD80 (after rebate). I guess I’m looking for someone who knows about this stuff to validate this as I don’t know much about it and Gamdias isn’t popular enough for too many reviews out there. What I’m worried about is the long term performance. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I will really appreciate any responses.

How is the EVGA 550 B5? I don't see it on the list but I need a    >500W,   <$100 psu and coronavirus has left most retailers with empty shelves or prices are way inflated

If you really need a >500W PSU, you should be looking at about a 2080 Ti? In which case, you should have no trouble spending well over $100 on a PSU.

I couldn't find reviews of the B5, so as with any other PSU, it's crap until proven otherwise.

I have a GTX 670 FTW 4GB and the manual says it needs 500W minimum w/ 30A on the +12V rail, it also needs 2 pci-e 6pin power "dongles" and I think the Corsair CX450 I mistakenly ordered before I read my GPU manual only has 1.

Maybe EVGA is overestimating what the card needs (it came out when they were pushing the 3D vision stuff so the power req. might be made with that in mind but I can't say for sure) but like I said I still need 2 pci-e 6pin heads

30A is 360W, that's about right estimation for total power draw of average system with this GPU under 100% load on both CPU and GPU. But it would be way less in gaming. The reason why they still say that you need 500W PSU even though they also say you need 360W on 12V rail is because there are PSUs that despite say 400W rating - can't deliver full power on 12V rail, mostly group regulated ancient designs which you unfortunately still can buy today (look at tier C&D). If you get a modern PSU with DC-DC secondary topology it would be able to deliver ~95% of it's rated power on 12V rail.

 

Now about EVGA B5, we don't have any information about it yet but the assumption based on pictures we have yet that it's based on HEC TPK platform or it's derivative which is used in quite good Cougar GX-F PSU but, again, since it's mosty likely modified platform we can't really say how it would perform, but i'd place it in tier B+ temporarily based on info we have yet.

It's based on Andyson H6/GX platform which performed quite good in reviews on it's own, no reviews of this particular implementation tho but i think it's safe to say that it's decent a PSU.

Thanks a ton for the help, side question why is the Seasonic S12III tiered so low? I've heard that the 650W is DC to DC

Entire Seasonic S12III series are independent regulation, not DC-DC but double mag amp, it would be moved to tier B in the next revision. You might've heard about Seasonic S12II 650W+ which is DC-DC indeed, or rather units with wattage like X50W are DC-DC, whereas X30W ones are group. reg.

Gotcha I thought independent regulation and DC to DC were synonymous. 

 

Regardless, would you say the Seasonic S12III 650W (or lower if theyre all independent reg.) is a decent purchase for a budget psu?

For smth low powered, like GTX1660 maybe, yes, if it's cheaper than Corsair CX450 and such.

Would be powering my gtx 670 4gb and like you said I probably don't need much power for that.

 

It's a bit more expensive than the CX450 but I can't use that one since my gpu needs 2 pci-e 6pin connectors, and the CX550 & CX670 are both more expensive than the S12III

 

I'm between the S12III and an EVGA 500 GD right now I think. Wish the market wasnt so crazy at the moment.

If you can't raise a budget for CX550 - yes, it'll do.

CX550 is are going for 200% the usual price right now so I'll either get a cheaper unit or wait, but who knows how long. Thanks for the help.

Hello, guys. How've you all been? I'm here to ask about two PSU related websites: JohnnyGuru and Cybernetics. Concerning the Jonnyguru website, are OkalahomaWolf's reviews reliable and how does the Cybernetics website work? For cybernetics lab, do I just go buy the ratings displayed on the website for efficiency, etc?

My GPU needs 2 PCI-E power connectors but the PSU I ordered only has 1 because I didn't think to check like a dumbass.

 

My GPU came with an adapter that's 2x 4pin (Molex?) to 1x 6pin pci-e. Is that safe to use?

What did you order ? And what's your GPU ?

I would say so, they're just not as detailed as ones by Aris.

Not sure what you're asking here, as in you want to certify your PSU or what ? In this case you better off contacting Cybenetics directly.

Hi all!

 

I'm finishing my first build and I have a nightmare on trying to find a good adequate PSU for my build:

 

Ill be pairing it with a Ryzen 5 3600 and Radeon RX 5700 XT. I've looked into PSUs to fit into my budget and crossed across the Gamdias Kratos P1 750W Semi Modular.

I've tried to look around for a information related to this PSU but I can't seem to find one. I see it listed as a B Tier here.

 

That means it will be adequate for my build?

What happened with EVGA G3? I saw it was at D tier earlier and now its up to A-?

Slight reshuffling of the tiers. Otherwise A/A+ units which suffer from issues that arise in very unlikely scenarios are now placed in A-.
