That's likely motherboard 'issue' or rather it's just motherboard retraining DRAM on startup, it's normal.

oh yeah, i DO have new ram as well so it might just be that

You can try to tweak RAM OC profile, it's likely that motherboard can't run it at exact values XMP profile defines and tries smth different, hence restart.

Restart? No no, it doesnt randomly restart. It's completely fine in windows and works at the XMP timings fine, i dont rly mind if it shuts down and turns itself on when i restart/turn it on sometimes

Restart at startup. Motherboard tries to set and use RAM timings supplied by XMP profile, it doesn't quite work out, it changes some stuff and restarts again to apply that.

Meh idk, its done 3 times now. Once when i applied xmp and exited bios, once when i restart for chipset driver installation and this morning.
Honestly it doesn't bother me i was just curious tbh lol
As for the PSU the cables are really thick lol, like it was so hard to bend them it was honestly a pain setting it all up...
Btw which mode is the best? There's a button at the back but i accidentally clicked it a bunch when i was setting it up, i decided to have the button turned off(yknow when its protruding out)

Uh, 'Silent' - in-between mode probably, when it still spins the fan at low RPMs even at low load, that should be better for hydrodynamic fans to keep the grease from escaping the bearing chamber eventually if it sits there still for too long.

Can i press the button even when the PC is on?

but theres no good way to tell which mode is set

Like when the button is pushed in what does that mean?

 

Edit: Nvm i saw on the amazon QNA page for the foucs plus platinum and a seasonic rep said this "

Hi there,

Thank you for your question. Actually the Hybrid fanless mode is when the button is in the out position. If pushed in, the fan will be engaged and spin continuously. We have documentation in our FAQ that explains this function in more detail. - https://knowledge.seasonic.com/article/9-focus-plus-fan-control-button.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns." 

So ye i just pushed the button in

It's not clear, on Riotoro website a wording implies that it's supposed to be three-position button but on Seasonic website it's two-position (semi-fanless when unpressed).

Lol no its bs, i dont think riotoro can/needs to change that, even then its apparently a "max cooling mode" which would imply itd ramp up the fan to max but pressing the button a few times didnt result that at all, so its just BS or its worded wrong on their site.

It's also possibly effective only in new revision.

It was fixed presumably in v2 revision but IIRC there's no way to determine which revision you're buying. If you can't 'try-out' the Focus, i.e buy it and return if it doesn't work then get FM2, assuming you're in Poland it would be way easier to work with support then even should the need arise.

Hey I'm posting once again today I found that there is Gigabyte 750w GH in A rank and I also found out that it's cheaper than SPC one. Would this be fine for specs I listed before?

That is R5 2600, Vega 64 Sapphire Nitro. Because it's pretty cheap in comparison to other 650w 80+ gold PSUs

Yeah, it good, probably somewhat less good than SPC S FM2 but if it's significantly cheaper - why not, nothing wrong with it per se.

@junzhi2002 No, i can't find any clear shots of it's internals but it looks different if we compare what we see through exhaust vent.

Question, friendos. What are some top-notch PSU reviewers? Lookin' for people that review PSUs and are very trustworthy.

Also, would you fellows have any additional input regarding the Corsair RMi series? Any faults or anything? Would you guys say an RMi power supply is a solid choice? I'm aware of it being in the A+ tier, but I just want some additional input. Sincerest apologies if the question seems a bit stupid.

Yes, it is but you could probably find smth cheaper.

RMi is basically just an RMx with digital control on the rails and fan, as well as current measurement. the main difference is the multirail ocp, which makes it qualify for A+ while RMx doesn't.

 

it's a good choice at the right price, but generally high priced for what it is compared to for example HX(i)

Need help choosing a PSU.

 

Considering:

the tiers S, A+, A; 

a 600W load with high transient;

multi-rail OCP not required;

low noise (<20dB at target load) with cooling;

limited to $300;

targeting at least a 850W PSU;

Valuing ripple and transient response for 12V, 5V, 3.3V for equipment stability;

Not valuing regulation as long as it stays above reference;

 

Would there be a better choice other than AX850? AX1600i is nice but not needed and more expensive.

Does any of the S,A+,A PSU have true 12V multi-rail for noise/transient isolation?

Are there any reviews which evaluate frequency response during transients and peak deviations?

Besides cable routing, any negative aspects of in cable capacitors?

No, last high-end true multi-rail was CWT PUC AFAIK (Corsair HX 850\1000W 2008).

Define 'better'. Half of tier A\A+\S units would be just as good, better in some regards, worse in other.

What's your use-case for all this anyway ?

Hi, will you add the Itek GF series? Like the GF750? It is an 80+ gold full modular PSU and i kinda like the price point...
The only review i can find it's in Italian, the guy don't speak bad about it but still says it isn't at the level of an EVGA P2... somehow he even did a test at over 1000w on the 750... with success but poor psu...
Thank you

Yeah, it's SAMA Forza Gold based, like SilentiumPC Supremo FM2, decent stuff in other words.

This one ?

That's common with most of modern PSUs, not really an indicator of quality or performance at this point.
