    Since you're not in a huge hurry then I would say either wait and see what is available when you're looking to upgrade or check r/BuildAPCSales, as you can then snag a better unit for a good price. ...

    I'll be fair, I forgot about the GM Series existed but here in the US it came and went pretty damn quick. Not sure about EU stock.

    CX-m 450/550.

    I wouldn't ever do a build with a non-modular unit again. Likewise, if you need 650-750w unit, you're better off going up the product stack than a budget bronze design.

    There are tons of good units out there which would work. If you're in need of a power supply right now, that unit offers good performance and value so I would just say to buy it instead of trying to...

    You'd have to upgrade both connectors, GPU / Mobo side and PSU side, as well as the cabling between to eliminate that kind of issue. If you just upgrade one side or the cabling, you can still burn...

    The biggest question, is where do you live? If you're in the US there are plenty of budget options, but one of the cheapest available would probably be the Cougar GX-F 650w.

    Low end Cooler Master that might be worthwhile? We must have switched timelines.

    SuperFlower designs (like retail SuperFlower units, and some licensed designs) used to use that connector all the time. With it, you're pretty much wire-gauge limited as those are solid pins.

    It's DC-DC. Agreed though, if it was kept in a good environment (e.g. not a hot warehouse) should be fine.

    Are you talking about AVC fans specifically, or fans in general?

    On the open consumer market, Hydraulic Bearing or Hydro Dynamic Bearing is really a crapshoot on what you're going to get. It's...

    CX have DC-DC and a rifle bearing vs the S12III's Dual Mag-Amp and Sleeve bearing fan.

    I'd say those upgrades are worth the extra $8.

    The S12III's also appear to have some coil-whine problems...

    CX or CXM easily.

    The new 80+ Silver Vengeance units have hit the ~$50-60 mark after MIR for the 650/750w units recently. Also worth considering as it's an upgrade over the CX & CXM units in...

    At this point in time; generic sleeve bearings should not exist. A good rifle bearing with magnetic stabilization should basically be the bog standard unless you're going for single-ball bearing.

    Unless AVC has changed or updated anything since the last time I've run across their products; it's a sleeve bearing.

    Software voltage readings are never to be trusted. They are almost never accurate.

    If you have a DMM you could probe the cables to check the line voltages.

    They've been selling direct to consumer for over 15 years though. It's not really an excuse at this point.

    What's the derate on the VS series? I know they're 30C/24-7, but I don't think their curve has been mentioned before.

    So Jon, how come the fan is a standard Hong Hua affair instead of a Corsair model?
