PSU Tier List [OLD]

Go to solution Solved by Spotty,

This is a legacy list. It is no longer being updated.

 

The new PSU Tier List can be found here:

 

The fan noise thing seems to be a hard thing to describe as everyone has different ears. Mine for example are odd in that i have always been able to hear hi pitched noises others cant so for example if a security board at my office takes a lighting charge I can hear that its broken when no one else can. On the flip-side when i was young I was stupid and ran riding lawnmowers with no ear protection so my general volume threshold is very poor my tv is probably at twice the volume an average person.  So for me I cant hear almost any fan noise in general but any fan that makes a more high pitched noise I cannot stand. WIth PSU's I dont think I have ever heard a fan noise however this tends to be true of case fans as well. Small 80mm server fans I can hear and hurt my ears when they go full blast on boot. I had to remove the 3000RPM noctua fans I tried in my case because even at 800 rpm it was horrible for me but the 1500 RPM maxed redux noctua fans i could not hear at all.  That all being said i personally have never heard a PSU fan. I also typically use a headset so i cant hear my pc at all.  

 

 

Sorry that was slightly tangent I had a different question. Lets assume I do not really care about anything but failure rate and longevity, or rather i care about that much more than anything else what would be the best PSU? Im currently buying some parts for another pc build  I dont care about efficiency or price or features i just want the highest possible chance of putting it in a pc and never in 10+ years having to open up and replace it again would i just be looking for ones with the more expensive internals? IE should i be looking at reviews of units and just looking for name brand capacitors and someone going yep thats a good solder? I know seasonic has a warranty that last ages but assuming I dont care about even that because im lazy and don't ever want to open and rewire things again.  Am I just as likely to have a failure in a ~100$ unit as a ~200$ unit or do the internals actually matter in that regard?  I guess basically im asking does the extra 100$ you can spend on a titanium rated psu matter at all for longevity or just efficiency?  IE would you expect a seasonic prime to last longer or have less chance to fail than a focus? For instance i notice on new egg the prime series is rated for 50% more hours than a focus but there is 0 difference between a gold and a titanium prime unit as far as manufacturer expected life in hours.  Why is that?   Side question should i care about the things people review like ripple etc when any units im likely to buy will likely be very good?  Does this matter any less if i know im going to be plugging my unit in through a  battery backup surge protecting UPS? Could these things actually effect my max stable OCs? I dont mind spending 200$ but i don't see myself spending 400$ and getting 3x the number of watts i need. Also any links to resources where i can read up on this would be great as im a nerd and just like learning about these things in general. 

 

Thanks for any insight

In theory the FSP Twins, but it will annoy you to hell with it's fans as they run insanely fast. On a more serious note, a PRIME/RM(x/i)/H(x/xi)or AXi would work just fine...

I’ve seen ECO mode cause instability issues, perhaps due to OTP triggering.

https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/295396-win-pc-shutdown-under-load#cx2992682

 

And a lot of semi fanless power supply have a high OTP setting. If that temperature is repetitively hit, I can’t imagine it good for the PSUs lifespan.

I was able to trigger OTP on my Silverstone Strider 750W Platinum.

Though I kinda provoked it (was on the side, high wattage testing with Heaven + Prime and pulled th plug, put it back in and then it tripped).

 

And there is also:
https://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/11/13/corsair_rm750_750w_power_supply_review/4

 

And with my new CWT SFX PSU the fan starts/stops literally from a second to the next (maybe 5) - its really that bad. And causes a brrr - phui (a slight motor humming followed with a slight hiss)

I have used ECO mode on my EVGA G2 850Watts for 3 years now, and I have no problem with it at all. 

A sample size of 1 is irrelevant.

I know someone who had IIRC two similar Super FLower Leadex fail on him.

But does that matter? no.

 

The thing is that there are issues with Semi Fanless that make it expensive, so that you might want other things instead. For example more Drive Connectors, better quality fan, Multi Rail...

a) what do you want with 600W+??
If you do not have much money, get a better quality one instead of a high wattage one. You do NOT need 600W+ for your setup. And since you're not having much money, it doesn't make it better.

 

So the best option are those:

https://www.forit.ro/surse/xilence/161295-performance-a-plus-xp530r8-530w/

https://www.forit.ro/surse/xilence/191388-performance-x-xp550r9-80-plus-gold-550w/

 

better:

https://www.forit.ro/surse/be-quiet/183125-system-power-9-80-plus-bronze-500w/

https://www.forit.ro/surse/be-quiet/161242-pure-power-10-80-plus-silver-500w/

 

best:

https://www.forit.ro/surse/be-quiet/179103-straight-power-11-550w-80-plus-gold-550w/

 

I have a Radeon R9-280X myself (or rather two).

And it consumes not that much...

 

So out of those, the best option is probably the Xilence Performance X, 550W, after that the be quiet Pure Power and the System Power 9 (NOT 8, stay away from 8!)

No, the Xilence Performance A+ is better as its DC-DC. 

But there are way better options in that store -> System Power 9.

 

Other Options:
Chieftec Power Smart 550W though the fan is kinda shit...

Hello,thank you for posting ,i think i will buy  Xilence Performance A+ XP530R8, 530W or  be quiet! System Power 9, 80+ Bronze, 500W -these are the power suplies that fit with my budget . I forgot to add  in my list Corsair Builder Series CX500  // Corsair NEW VS Series VS550 - Certified Refurbished // Sirtec - High Power 550BR-V12S, 80+ Bronze, 550W // Seasonic S12II-520 Bronze 520W.

I got a question.It will be enough 500 W ? Because with my power supply my pc didn't start. I tried also with another cheap power supply - i connected my motherboard and hdd with the cheap one and i use antec just for video card .The computer start but got black screen on monitor and the coolers on the video card didn't start. What's wrong with my power supply ? Last year ran fine with a r9 380 . srs.png.01f39edc65c0db332350efff5980c236.png

Great that's the best choice you have right now...

Though I highly recommend the System Power 9 over the Xilence.

Those all don't really matter and aren't any better than the rest - or worse (like the S12II-Bronze from 2010).

I don't know the High Power but it doesn't look like that might be a good choice.

I've used an I7-3930K with an RX480 OC (Power Color Red Devil) with a 400W PSU.
500W will be fine.

Either because of incompatibility or because the PSU died.

Urgh, that's not a good idea and it might have damaged stuff.

Using 2 PSU is only something you'd do with better PSU than you have right now.

 

The Reason it might not work no more might be because the PSU just died as its almost 10 years old...

PSU don't get better with age...

Yeah, and some aren't even expensive. For example Xilence Performance X. My 750W unit goes down to 350rpm and has also a fan with low motor/bearing noise. Though only a normal Sleeve Bearing fan.

There are other Options as well.

Lower Wattage Bitfenix FOrmula/Whisper M have OKish Fan noise (slight Motor/Bearing noise), kinda mediocre, good are most be quiet units.

Xilence isn't readily available in North America

 

Formula can go fuck itself

 

Whisper M is hard to find in North America, and in the rare cases it is it's overpriced AF

2 : Cable management with non-modular PSUs can be a pain especially in smaller cases; even 1 extra cable can cause problems in a small uATX case, etc.

Why do you mention multirail as if it's a disadvantage? 

It can be done well but often isn't and generally multirail units don't hit as tight voltages as good single rails (i.e. Bitfenix Formula vs RMx, G2, etc)

You were mentioning a specific unit - Whisper M, so why use a generalization as an argument? It has multi-rail done well. 

 

It would be like saying "nVidia GPUs can be fast, but often aren't. Don't buy GTX1080."

That's wrong - multi rail literally doesn't affect voltage regulation as all. It's just extra current sensors wired to the protection IC.

Be that as it may I'm not wrong. That may not be a super strong argument but I think a $60 RMx is

I'd call it a $80 RMx with a $20 rebate, but yeah I'd prefer to have that over a $80 Whisper with no rebate too.

Hey everyone, I've narrowed down my search for a new PSU and would like some advice on their performance relative to one another; this is disregarding the wattage (all are more than sufficient for my build) and price, I'm just curious about stability / protection / noise (though this is less important) / etc.

 

Seasonic X-650

EVGA 650 G2

Seasonic Prime Gold 650

EVGA 750 PQ

 

Thanks so much for your time and any assistance, it's been pretty hard finding comparisons for these models that use the same equipment / methodology!

What are you talking about? multirail has nothing to do with voltage regulation. It simply means the 12V rail is splitted for safety

 

Stop believing everything you here, it doesn't apply to all cases

tell us country, budget and what PC you want to power?

Well as I said I was purposefully disregarding those things as I've seen some nasty arguments spawn up that digress from the original request, and also as they're not really important as these PSUs are selected because I have very good deals available to me for each of them. But to answer your question:

 

Country: USA

Budget: <$80

PC: OCed 2600 / 1060 6gb

 

Again, yes 650w or 750w is notably more than is necessary for this build. The above models were mentioned explicitly because I can get them cheaper than their lower wattage equivalents. Those models were also selected because their various price points are enticing enough relative to maxing my budget for the "gain" from something like a RM850x (currently $80 on Newegg) etc. My original question wasn't geared towards recommendations so much as it was towards the comparison of a handful of Tier 1/2 units.
