    This new FE/AIB in parallel model that Nvidia is using now doesn't work for me. Too much margin of error.

    Back when I worked at BFG, all launch cards were reference. Once second source, cost...

    Double forward topology, group regulated, sleeve bearing fan, no OTP....

    It's just an all around bad PSU.

    Yep. You can't use tantalum caps in that application. There's an MLCC shortage. So someone probably just did a paper comparison and said, "this should work".

    No. No. This will not "work".

    Because it's Bronze. F for fully modular.

    For it to keep the Vengeance name, it would have to be Silver or better efficient.

    That would probably be the backlash.

    I'm already seeing people saying this CX-F isn't "good" because it's "Bronze".

    Circuit design.

    And, no. We (Corsair) typically don't use platform names beyond the quote process. Each project gets its own project name assigned by Corsair.

    I don't know their methodology on RGB PSUs. We did all of our measurements with LED's on, full white. And the PSU does Rainbow Wave by default out of the box. Maybe 80 PLUS turned the LEDs off...

    Easy to know if it's the PSU fan or not. Just stop the PSU fan with a Q-tip or pencil eraser to see if the noise stops when the fan stops.

    We have some. I just sit in my office at night snipping the +3.3V wires off of cables until I fall asleep.

    It's the only function I've seen. :D

    And now, because there are PSUs without +3.3V leads causing higher than normal call rates at Corsair tech support, they've switched over to either +3.3V and...

    There isn't much difference between an RM750 and an RM750x, BTW.

    I said complexity impacts longevity. Not efficiency.

    But that's true of anything. Take a VW Rabbit compared to a Cadillac with a Northstar V8, for example.

    What do we know about this unit? I believe it's double forward and group regulated +12V w/ +5V with only the +3.3V on D2D.




    Then why suggest it?

    Though it's bound to be better than any of...

    That first link, you can't even sort by category to FIND power supplies.

    The second one doesn't even have power supplies as a category you can look through.

    And the third one is just a PDF.

    For the record, the "best Bronze" PSU aren't even on your list.

    It's going to be either the Corsair CX, the Asus TUF, EVGA B2 or B5.

    Why Bronze?

    You have to have a particular efficiency power supply?

    Also, many of these vary based on wattage. Example: CV450 and CV550 are group regulated while CV650 has DC to DC.

    He's right and he's wrong.

    You don't have to have the OCP or OPP set high. These spikes are so fast, OCP or OPP isn't going to catch them in an analog PSU. In fact, in most cases I bet the...

    Not what I said. RM will continue to be GPU. GPX was for a low cost Gold alternative for SI's, but it didn't meet our requirements without making it the same cost or higher than GPU.
