The mention of FSP having D-tier products in their lineup was solely to show that the FSP branding isn't an automatic factor of undisputable quality.

And yes, I do have the link, since the PSU is so unknown there only are a limited number of reviews, mainly in Spanish (since the brand's based there), but only one is in italian as far as I am aware of.

Looks weird, it's probably not Super Flower OEM. Double forward (unless that yellow rectangular thing where transient filter is supposed to start is resonance inductor and not an X cap) + DC-DC. Voltage regulation and ripple look good but i don't have much faith in those reviwers. Sleeve bearing fan and as far as i can tell OTP isn't claimed so tier B.

Edit: and it's already there actually

hello fellow Turkish friend, i've also bought high power performance gd (i was the one who actually introduced it to here, thanks to the Juular and some other cool people, they managed to match it with chieftec polaris model, which they deem good enough quality for midrange systems)

 

i've been using it for about 2 months with a 2700x and a gtx 1080, no issues so far

 

only possible concerns are probably its low warranty period (2 years or 3 years at best, mine is 2 years thanks to teknobiyotik)

 

and its fans are sleeve beared, which means they can have shorter life span compared to other more better built fans (i think double ball bearing or smth like that).

 

but i think if the fan fails, psu have overtemp protection so you would probably know. and it is said that it is fairly easy to change the fan so... i took the risk as well in that case 

 

so far, so good. i hope fan doesn't fail on me though, it wouldn't be a very pleasant experience

 

i'm also torn between to put or not to put a dust filter beneath the psu. potentially, dust filter will limit the airflow so the fan will have to work faster, and possibly run out of its live quicker. but if i dont use dust filter, since my computer is on the ground and it tends to be a dust magnet, the psu will be full of dust probably.

 

so dont know which way i would follow, i think maybe juular can give some insight on this topic to whether I should use dust filter or not for my psu, which one would bring more harm to the psu_?

 

 

 

Hello buddy, thanks for your reply.
I just got my Performance GD but I didn't have opportunity use it yet. To be honest, I don't care about warranty, I haven't use my warranty at all in my whole life. So it is not a down side for me.

If fans would die after 2 years, I am okay with changing the fans since there is no warranty. Protection and stability is most important parameter for me instead of longevity. Probably, it will last long though.

one is gold but not EPS(not sure if i need that) and has OCP

all three of them have an EPS connector.

both have an 8 pin EPS (aka CPU) connector. TXm is by all means the better PSU here, using a more modern design as well as being more efficient. CXm is a budget oriented PSU, and not something that would fit as good with this system due to a chance of whining

I doubt there are any relatively modern PSU for DIY market that doesn't have EPS, it's essential.

@viceice could you perhaps take some shots of HP Performance GD through the grille to confirm that it's indeed Chieftec Polaris platform ?

Hello

I realize it's annoying to be answering every single question about if this or that PSU it's ok, so I'm sorry for this, but i saw mine in the Potentially Dangerous category and i kinda Panik!

My system is:

CPU: R5 3600, GPU: 5700xt, 2x8GB ddr4 3000mhz (3300mhz currently), 1 ssd nvme, 1 ssd sata, 1 hdd 7200rpm and 2 120mm fans, nothing over the top, so i thought my old EVGA 600B would be ok.

So, would it be ok? I also have an UPS, so maybe that helps

 

Thank you and sorry for my rusty english

Nope, probably not Panik worthy but be sure to replace it ASAP.

in my country the new psu from seasonic s12iii has a similar price to sp9. s12iii seems a better psu overall but the question now is why dcdc is better than indy?

Ok, thanks for the quick response.

So what do i have to look for in a decent PSU ?

I know that should look in the list for something in the B category or above, but the problem is that where i live in (Argentina) we have very few options, and often there are unkown brands, or even well kown ones, but they have like a hundred little variants and maybe one letter in the name makes the difference.

This three were the only ones i could find that are present in the list:

https://www.hardrosario.com/productos/fuente-gigabyte-650w-gp-p650b-80-certificada/?variant=65673082&utm_source=hardgamers&utm_medium=search engine

https://www.hardrosario.com/productos/fuente-evga-650gq-650w-80-certificada-gold-modular/?variant=65673402&utm_source=hardgamers&utm_medium=search engine

https://www.electronia.com.ar/DETALLE/ITEM_ID=45001/GlobalBluePoint-ERP.aspx?utm_source=hardgamers&utm_medium=search engine

 

The others as i said, are different models of well kown brands, or things like this

https://compragamer.com/producto/fuente_segotep_600w_80_plus_gold_gp700g_9866?redir=1&nro_max=50

 

Thank you

 

Edit: If you want to understand the prices, just divide the numer it says by 100, and that would be the price in USA dollars aprox.

Edit 2: Also avalilable 

https://www.computershopping.com.ar/Producto/Fuente-NZXT-E-Series-500W-ATX-MODULAR-80--GOLD?utm_source=hardgamers&utm_medium=search engine

I don't understand how a A+ PSU could be priced the same that a C. My country logic i guess.

Why DC-DC better than double-mag amp?

FTFY, because both DC-DC and double-mag amp are independent regulation topologies, just different implementations. Double-mag amp are older, with somewhat worse performance (voltage regulation mostly) and used very rarely anyway, okay for budget PSU like Seasonic S12III tho.

 

- - -

 

@Dhonny Third link doesn't work for me. Choosing from those options, cheapest one, Gigabyte P650B would be okay. But with this GPU i'd recommend smth better, Gigabyte G750H probably since there are no other alternatives in high-end-ish range unless you go all the way to 14-15k ones like Seasonic Focus. I'm not entirely sure about that Segotep GP700, it may be on different platform than GP650.

@viceice Yeah, indeed looks like Chieftec Polaris platform, thanks.

sp9 would actually be better in my eyes in a lot of ways. but to the double mag amp vs dcdc is mainly in voltage regulation and more importantly low-load efficiency is a lot better on DC-DC because it can function with less load compared to double mag
