    Default Deepcool Quanta DQ750 750W Power Supply Review

    Once in a while, a completely random and unknown product comes in for review. Today, I'm looking at a brand new offering from Deepcool, a company formerly known for cooling solutions, who now wants to make a splash in the power supply business. But do they have what it takes to be competitive in a market dominated by the likes of Seasonic, Antec, Enermax, and Corsair? The Quanta DQ750 is here to answer that very question.

    I'm a little "shocked" maybe? Surprised... I guess...

    I opened this review and expected to see yet another gold units in another standard packaging with a new sticker/print on the side.

    While we did get that, we also got a glance of a company thinking about doing something different. They just don't quite understand the market they're tackling.

    Hopefully their PSU division goes like the cooling one does and they only take a generation to hone in on what the market actually wants.

    If this was to come to the US it would definitely face the stiffest competition from the V700, Capstone 750M, & (aforementioned) Commander III 800w but that's honestly not a bad price on this guy. The only thing that comes close in MSRP is the CS750 which isn't a stellar unit either.

    A competent entry into the market, not stellar, but competent.
    One of these days they will nail down the unit's specs before printing the box, and their web guy (probably only the one) will get the job to put the thing on the website after that point too.

    So this is essentially the same stuff that's in Thermaltake's Evo Blue 2.0. The platform and the aforementioned Tt both support delay-off. Tt implements a full-on mode, and I'm not entirely sure about semi-fanless operation...

    Decent unit overall, though it wouldn't get my recommendation unless it was the only decent offering around.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    The Evo blue doesn't have semi-fanless operation, but it does run the fan for a bit after shutdown. I do kinda wish that Wolf had tested the -12V rail. It would have been interesting to see if any other PUQ-G based units have the same quirk with the -12V ripple.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    Saw no issues with the -12V rail beyond the fact that it is somehow still in the ATX specification.

    Just what the world needed. Another CWT PUQ derivate...
    Why not make something new or take a manufacturer that's not that widely used?!

    I think you are being kind on the value side considering you can get the Seasonic built XFX unit for about the same price. Also their service seems like it could be suspect if it's difficult to know where to send the warranty info to, and considering the overall lack of documentation and it's inaccuracies.

    That lighted fan should give a cool eery glow under the PC case though.

    Next time, a shot of the fan shining its LED's?

    Because maybe, just maybe, there is a reason why they are not widely used for quality products.
