  1. Power Supply Testing & Failure Analysis: Engineering the Best PSUs (2020) - GN

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WToOFblsXqM

    Interesting video, he seemed a bit dismissive of the GaN in the AX1600i :D

    It took me longer than expected to work out (When they said CM my first thought was actually Gospower, but they don't make units for other "popular brands" AFAIK). I guessed by checking internal...

    You’ll never move to 12V only for everything since USB won’t change for backwards compatibility.

    I wonder how much this will annoy motherboard manufacturers, they’ll now need to add 5/3.3V...

    Some time ago you mentioned Corsair had moved to using Japanese caps for all the bulk caps, is this no longer the case?

    Aside from the GW CS being inferior to the RMx in most other ways :D

    Not sure where you get the idea the 3900X is a 65w chip from, AMD say it’s a 105w chip and if you overclock you can easily increase that by a decent amount, though yeah, still probably fine on a 4...

    That’s not enough for anything above 850w, Corsair has at least 6 1kW+ units which cannot use that plug.

    Those “Tier A+ and Tier S” requirements harshly penalise low wattage PSUs that use a singular OCP trip point where 3-4 individual trip points are not particularly viable due to modern high power GPUs...

    How are you defining tiers? What individual users need in a unit differs widely - Stephan will always rant about protection ICs and Fans, The Guru is eternally unhappy with non-LLC designs and I...

    Yeah, I’d probably take a HXi over Prime Titanium, you lose the efficiency, but the software controls, selectable multi-Rail and better fan MCU setup offset the lower efficiency and perhaps slightly...

    AMD in particular has a history of releasing horribly power hungry cards to try and compete with much more competitive nVidia options - see FuryX, Vega 64, even RX580 for examples. As for Ryzen, AMD...

    $100 gets you plenty of power and a decent quality PSU, little reason to go above this.

    Those numbers are just absurd, you could run that system on 500w easily, OuterVision is horribly inaccurate...

    Isn’t the current TX-M series only 2-3 years old? I could have sworn they released in 2017 or so.

    For a *long* time BeQuiet was difficult and often overly expensive in the US (especially PSU wise). They are much more obtainable nowadays, but that's not always been the case.

    I usually wouldn’t care, but in this case the user specifically wants the quietest option(s).

    Pure Power 11 is probably your best option for low noise, the Corsair is alright, but only if you get a CWT-built one, the GW built models are louder.

    Even 700w is pushing it, I rarely break that much with a pair of 2080Tis (though I only have a 7700K).

    Sure, just poke the PSU connectors and see what voltage differential you get - if it’s 12V then your positive probe is on a 12V connector and ground probe is on a ground, if it’s 0V then either both...
