Maybe I need to be clearer. My proposed solution has always been in line with all of your ideas and explanation and will not be cumbersome. Merge tier S and A+, but tighten the requirements on this new tier. PSUs that we are objecting will go down a tier and everyone will be happy. Easy. Forget about the maths on "750", "650+", splitting of low wattage units, etc. Those were red herring discussions.

I am not expert, but EVGA's BQ series is splitted in two categories: a) 650/750/850 and b) 500/600 and I think there are significant differences because they have 5 and 3 years warranty respectively. I compared EVGA BQ 650 with Seasonic S12iii, which is in the same rank, and I found out that BQ 650 has OCP protection (and also 3.3 and 5 combined give 30 watt more), but Seasonic S12iii lacks of it. At the same time, Gigabyte P650B has OCP protection and it is ranked higher. In the Methodology, you don't require OCP, but "independent regulation", something I don't understand, because I am no expert, but I wasn't able to find/track it either at gigabyte's site or at your russian site source. 
I just feel BQ is underrated, that's all.

Ah I'm sorry. I thought those only applied to their old fanless 600W and 400W models.

Old Fanless is X Fanless. But yeah, we technically have only Prime Fanless TX there for now, i'll add Prime Fanless PX in the next revision.

Aris did. It's essentially the same thing internally as Bitfenix Whisper M, Enermax Revolution DF and Deepcool Gamer Storm DQ-M.

there' s something strange going on 12v rail load regulation at 50-100w interval (from 0,5 deviation goes to 1,5 and then drops to 0,5 again). Other than that seems perfect (maybe a little loud over 75% of the load).

It also has 10 year warranty but will xpg be around after 10 years?

Some low-end Andyson platform, at least looks DC-DC but i can't really recommend it when you can have Corsair CX450 for 5$ more.

Picking a PSU for another computer.

Just curious, how do i distinguish between Antec High Curent Gamer? Which ones are 2020+ and which ones are pre 2020?

No way except asking a retailer what's the manufacturing date. But if you don't plan to use AMD Vega with it it's irrelevant really.

But in any other aspect it's basically Seasonic, but cheaper?

Yep, it's Seasonic Focus Gold / GX, if we're talking about Antec HCG Gold (there were older HCGs and also very similarly looking Bronze one on some Andyson platform).

This has probs been asked and answered before, but I couldn't find anything on my quick browse of this topic. If I get a Tier A Cooler Master V 750W unit (i.e ideally <=650W) that is 750W, is it still adequate/safe to use for an upper mid-range system? Or would I be better off getting a Tier A+/Tier S?

I'd say sub 1000W it's relatively safe, and it's not like it would explode otherwise, just in case of a short you'll have bigger boom, there's an opinion that if anything shorts then that something is toasted anyway so multi-rail OCP wouldn't help here either but IMO if you're buying 1000W+ PSU it's just a common sense to get multi-rail.

interesting that you found a strix... I would've thought it was mostly too new to be V1

 

2060s wouldn't have these issues, but I'd attempt to RMA it to Asus here

Seasonic Focus FX/FM had compatibility issues with GTX970 Strix, screen flickering, black screen IIRC, not shutdown. How it happens ? It shuts down completely and you need to cycle the PSU to start the PC again or it just restarts ?
