EPS- 650? Impervio? What, no ST?
I thought this was a Silverstone?
Teapo and Hitachi, ala' Zeus?
Everflow fan?
The boots on the PCB are nice
Pot for fan speed?

Pot for fan speed?

That's what I think, since the two connectors to the right of that PCB go out to thermistors and the connector on the top is for the fan.

I noticed that, I had to double check to make sure it didn't have two fans:p
It's been a long night;)

EDIT: It has 3 inputs

The sinks are the exact same as the ST60F Silverstone Strider and Enhance ENS-0560G-G. Betcha it's Enhance OEMed.

Impervio Electronics?

I'm thinking that's the PCB manufacturer.

I'm thinking this is from Enhance's new Taiwan facility, but engineered by Silverstone.

My guess is Impervio PCB, but Enhance. Maybe ST65ZF, with some tweaking?

But the 65ZF looks quite different inside, no?

Mucho impressive. Like OklaWolf said, I like the independant regulation but I'd really like to know what price point this is aimed at.

I have two PSU's to review before it, but I plan to have both up before the weekend. So the OP650 will go up at the end of next week or after next (not this upcoming) weekend.

looking very forward to this review. I only hope it does well so I can expect at least the same from the OP750 and hopefully the DA750 too.

Only interesting 'cause I ordered one from De D. I liked the fact that it will support either 2-6pin or 1-8 pin video cards. _ReeL

nice quick and dirty review. Not too much to go on but I did like how the difference between load and idle was only 0.01v with it actually being higher on load than idle! I know it doesn't mean much without a very thorough jonnyguru style review however the fact that the 12v rail was healthily above 12v is a nice sign. I hate seeing them border line knowing they will dip under heavy load. I look VERY forward now more than ever for a full review. If this is a top notch psu I will probably get the 750w due to the extra wattage, amperage on the 12v rail as well as the extra 2 6pin pcie cables for native SLI with 8800GTX etc. I really, really hope the Decathlon DA750 is the exact same unit only modular, will be a dream psu come true.

Why? The spec is 11.4v to 12.6v.

Yeah, I can't wait for Jonny's review. They listed it's score but didn't say why, they said that the 120mm fan is at the top of the power supply, and the tests they did don't seem half as thorough as Jonny's. Not to mention, they stuck it in a SilverStone case... What SilverStone case isn't going to fit a SilverStone PSU, or even have any problems with a SilverStone PSU mount? Besides, most people buying a nice 300 dollar case aren't going to be buying a 650 watt PSU, they'll want something bigger to power a monster rig that someone with 300 bucks to shell out on a case will probably build.

Jonny, you've gotten me to a point where I expect a level of quality from PSU reviews that other people can't match. I blame you. :p

Good spotting the score issue. I noticed that too but forgot to mention it. They gave the unit an 8 out of 10 but didn't mention how they got to that score.

Any chance of this review getting up this weekend? I dont want to miss out on the dead eye data deal. (which has been extended to march 1st last I saw) And would hate to buy it only to find out it has high load problems or something later.

I believe we are waiting on the RMA to come in as the first unit had a melt down. :lol:

Hurray! Reading now. ;o)

Seems solid enough for me, I'll put in my order later today. I'm not sure how much is too much when it comes to ripple, but a 100th of a millivolt cant be bad. ;o)

(Although now I'm wondering to myself how long this thing will stand up to regular high loads and possibly overspec loads.)

Thanks Jonny!

Edit: lol, I totally read that ripple info wrong, Vdiv was 0.05v not 0.01mV =P

Hmm. So if I am reading this right, it performs as good as the best of the best (Etasis, Zippy, etc.) with more power, and more future proofing than the similarly priced ST56ZF. Seems like its an awesome power supply! I think this settles it, I'll be buying one soon.

SKYMTL
02-25-2007, 04:35 PM
I would still like to know the OEM of that thing.
I would have also like to have seen them spend a few bucks more and sleeve all the cables.

Yes, it's a very good PSU. My X-Pro 600W EE is more efficient and has all sleeved cables for the same price though. :D

Like I said in the review, SUPPOSEDLY Enhance's new Taiwan facility. But I haven't really confirmed that 100%. Lots of people like to talk smack, if you know what I mean. :D

Oklahoma Wolf
02-25-2007, 04:53 PM
I tend to believe the rumors that Etasis engineers had a hand in it - the three input caps in parallel strongly remind me of the ST56ZF/EPAP-560 ;)

SKYMTL
02-25-2007, 04:58 PM
Okla, you really need to get out more. I know that there isn't much to do in Sask, but you need to put that memory of yours to better use. ;)

So we can say this is an Etasis-designed, Enhance-built unit. Just like the ProXstream is a 3Y-designed, FSP-built PSU ;)

Oklahoma Wolf
02-25-2007, 05:03 PM
lol - getting out is overrated :p

Just curious though, are you referring to my signiture Popeye quoting or my internal database of PSU designs?

I'm hesitant to call it anything until these show up with a UL file number or other identifying marks.

Finally! I skimmed through the review very quickly before I went to work but am going to read it again more thoroughly shortly.

So far I am very impressed. I don't like the fact that it didn't even break into 80% efficiency territory but still pretty solid for the load I would put through it with my system (79% consistent). Jonny didn't seem to take away a mark for performance because of this so it should be alright. I know this may sound stupid but I hate how the 12v rail falls below 12.00 when put under load. Yea yea its only by 0.02v but I like to see it above 12.00 at all times. I'll probably get flamed for saying that....

Wondering two things. It mentioned a buzz from the unit when unrealistic loads were put on it through the various rails. I take it that means that general/more realistic use of the unit will perform no such buzzing?

It seems most of the cables aren't sleeved which is pretty dodgy. I hope the OP750/DA750 have them all sleeved.

I know it may be near impossible to tell (unless you already have info on these units) but what are the chances that the OP750 and especially the DA750 will perform similar to the OP650 if not even better? Do they seem to be based off the same design?

I just checked the updated list of recommended gaming psu's and you put the OP650 in a second Tier? You rated this a 9/10 with a 10/10 being for performance of the unit. Why does it only fall into a second tier category? What does it take to fall into a first?

Sorry for all my questions, I have just been very curious on this unit and would like to have a peace of mind on all my thoughts of this line of psu's before I order.

Thanks a ton for the review Jonny. I hope you can manage to get your hands on an OP750/DA750 for testing in the future.

Because it doesen't have the build quality of a TC or Zippy;)

Just curious why the OP650 didn't make tier 1.

Not enough data, I guess. I'm still not quite sure it's of the build quality of a Turbo-Cool or Zippy.

There was no buzzing during the other tests. Only the crossloads.

It seems most of the cables aren't sleeved which is pretty dodgy. I hope the OP750/DA750 have them all sleeved.

The OP750 looks the same as the OP650.

The DA750 is all sleeved from what I can tell.

I know it may be near impossible to tell (unless you already have info on these units) but what are the chances that the OP750 and especially the DA750 will perform similar to the OP650 if not even better? Do they seem to be based off the same design?

The naming convention seems to imply that, but we'll see in about a month or two I'm sure.
