No, it's definitely a problem with the GPU and not the PSU.

It's probably had a push from many manufacturers so they can save on costs a bit in the EU while still having a fancy marketing badge on the box.

Not bad per say, but Delta definitely has some very low cost options out there on the market.
On both the consumer DIY & consumer pre-built market.

Didn't consider it, but that is possible. They may not have wanted to repeat the M12II Bronze issues where the highest wattage units (850w in that case) had trouble on both the tests beds & in user...

Having heard the EVGA G2 at close to full load (somewhere in the 980w range) on a mining rig the fan is actually rather quiet and the grill didn't add much if any turbulent noise.

I was going off the UK prices but yeah the EU prices look fine.

Hopefully EVGA brings these guys over to the US at a similar price to their current Leadex based units.

It's a good unit, but that price hurts it a lot.

It's higher (at least in the UK) than the X-750KM3 is, with being slightly weaker in the Vreg but better in the efficiency and slightly better...

All around, I'd say it's just decent performance. 3% on the minor rails & ~2.3% on the 12v with ~50mv of ripple is nothing to write home about.

Well, it's not a total fast one since on will be an XTR unit and the other will be a Black Edition; but it will confuse some folks and it is still dishonest.

Still a good unit but I would rather...

The XFX Core 650w is non-modular, less efficient, and louder.

If any of those factors could be a deal breaker for you; I would choose the V550S instead. Otherwise the XFX is still a very good...

As far as their standard 120mm fans & 140mm fans go (aka the ones you see often in PSUs) generally yes.

This should be an FDB (the same bearing in the Silverstone AP121 & AP123 fans), so it...

No problem.

Just keep in mind that the GPU is $500 or so; a $70-90 PSU is a worthy investment as you want something that's built well, performs well, and has a nice warranty behind it.
