    Then don't get a graphics card at all until you can afford a new PSU.

    Are you really in the United States? Because that PSU is for EU power (230V). It shouldn't work (or at least won't work...

    Right. Just the first board. And I responded to quickly.

    The problem could be a component drawing too much power through the board, via a particular trace, to the individual pin. Most likely...

    Sufficient, yes. Of course. 450W or 550W is sufficient. But not worth it. That's hardly cheaper than an RM650x and besides, the G2 was actually better.

    It is. And transient response doesn't even play a part on how it can handle high transient loads. It's how you have the OCP and/or OPP set for those big spikes, because the voltages drop isn't...

    To state the obvious: You're going to see burnt contacts on the motherboard if you have poor conductivity or too much load.

    So either way you're probably looking at a faulty motherboard.

    Yeah. That's not a good reason to buy one over the other.

    Despite the bearing used, the fan is horribly loud due to the large hub and smaller blades.

    Performance wise, the Hydro G falls short...

    I didn't say that at all.

    The poor transient response is coming from the DC to DC (the +3.3V and +5V). Poor transient response from the DC to DC has nothing to do with the PSU's topology. It has...

    How do you figure?

    They're perfectly fine except for the +3.3V and +5V, which run off a DC to DC circuit. Has nothing to do with the +12V being LLC or DF or whatever. But regardless.... you're...

    Yes.

    Due to the tariffs, the CX and some other models sold in the US, are made in CWT's factory in Vietnam.

    And no, Vietnam does not smell worse than China.

    CX and CX-M are completely different PSUs internally.

    CX and the MWE V2 share the same topology (LLC w/ D2D), but the OEM's quality/capability is still an unknown.

    Could just be a bad breaker.

    Yeah. That's a pretty shitty PSU.

    Back to the AVR: Pretty sure he doesn't need one. Get a better PSU and he definitely doesn't need one. :D

    Well, why do you have the AVR? What PSU do you have? Do you have a 230V only PSU and the mains voltage often drops below 190V?
