    Default Question on new EVGA 600W (nonB model)

    Ok my brother bought me a EVGA 600W 100-W1-0600-K1 PSU for Christmass. I have my doubts about this unit. If it was the 600B, I would not fear it as much. My Current setup is as follows
    CPU: i5-3470
    GPU: EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0
    Ram: 8GB
    PSU: Corsair CX600.
    My current Corsair CX600 is close to a year old now. I know the Corsair CX is not the best in the world, But it is at'least stable with no problems, And it's not going to ruin my hardware. What do you think?

    Here is were it came from http://www.bestbuy.com/site/evga-80-...&reviewsPage=2

    Agreed, makes no sense.

    The new PSU should be better than the old one wich the EVGA is not.
    It's more or less equal to your old PSU..

    If it was a gold PSU with DC-DC the upgrade would have made sense.
    But a group regulated 80plus or bronze to another group regulated 80plus (bronze) is useless...

    Are you kidding? Does anyone even read posts anymore? Or do you just half read now, and see only what you want? I am asking if this PSU is ok to run with a i5 / GTX 970 Rig, And if it is any worse than my CX600! Also what part of my brother bought it for me did you not understand? I never planned buying it! I used to read on this site for years to get answers! Please don't tell me it has become dumbed down like the rest of the world! Also if you looked it up! Instead of pretending to know everything! You would know it's not group regulated! I am not meaning to be this way! But c'mon on! Read a post first! And if you do not even know the difference in a group regulated unit, and a single rail unit! Don't try to give advice!

    The people that are visiting jonnyGURU everyday are only getting smarter. If you would read some replies from 5 years ago, then you see a big difference in quality. The thing that doesn't change is people that are visiting or posting for the first time, like you I guess.

    I've read everything you posted, but I still don't get it. It's nice that you brother gives you a new PSU, but why that one? That's one isn't better then your Corsair. A modern 400/450W PSU with DC-DC and two PEG connectors was a much better option.

    About group regulation, you really don't have any idea what that means, do you?

    Yes, and?!
    There are two postings that answered your question, where's your problem with them? One of them was pretty detailed as well and explained WHY it makes no sense...

    What are you talking about?!
    It IS group regulated?!
    this review also states it's grup regulated

    And sorry, but YOU don't seem to know anything. Why would you say something like "And if you do not even know the difference in a group regulated unit, and a single rail unit!"

    One has absolutely NOTHING to do with the other!
    One is how the +12V rail is split or not. The other is how _ALL_ voltages are generated...

    And no one here would recommend a group regulated unit for a modern PC due to various reasons!

    I thought they meant more than one rail, when they said group regulated, I did not mean offense to anyone! But it is very annoying nowadays that most people only half read your post. And then respond with a smart-aleck comment. If they would have just read it, Then they would have been able to respond, if they had knowledge of the unit. But instead people like to insult more than help, And that just gets on my nerves! You would think people would get over that after they past age 10! Again, sorry. But you get what you give. And I can't help that. All I wanted to know was if the unit is safe to use, And if it delivers it's full rated power, Because I was thinking of just using it in my current build, And giving my Corsair CX600 to my nephew. But if the thing is worse than my current PSU. I will just exchange it for another. I don't want to use something that might destroy my expensive hardware. My current build is a CPU: i5-3470, GPU: GTX 970 SC, Ram: PNY 16GB 1600mhz, I run 3 hard drives plus my Blueray/DVD/RW. Most of my money goes to my family, So I have to tightly budget my hobby money, Which is gaming Rig parts. My old parts have been used to build a Rig for my Nephew, It's a CPU: i5-750 GPU: R9 270X Ram: 8GB Ripjaws 1600mhz. The PSU in my nephews build is a crappy Huntkey WIN7 600. But I think the Win7 is a CWT, And I am not as afraid of a CWT as I am a HEC.

    The EVGA 600W 100-W1-0600-K1, is most likely, the same platform with the 430 watt 100-W1-0430-KR reviewed at Hardocp ( and most likely the same platform with EVGA 500 that was reviewed by Jeremy http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=384 ).
    If indeed is the same platform with those 2, then it would be better to keep your CX psu, since the 430 watt model got a "FAIL" award from Hardocp
    ( http://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/...1#.VoAFrVLH5v0 ), and the other one that was reviewed by Jeremy was awful as well !!

    Here is a small sample from Paul's review:
    When we move to the interior of the EVGA 430W, we again find a dreadfully ancient topology that is coupled with components that make no one jump for joy because EVGA includes things like CapXon and Teapo capacitors as well as an odd fan. The one upshot with this unit, as before with the 500B, is this unit’s overall integration actually looks serviceable.
    CPU:Athlon 64 FX60 (2-cores) 2,6GHz
    Mobo:Asrock 939a785g
    cpu cooler:ArcticFreezer13 CO
    RAM:4 GB DDR 400MHz
    GPU:Asus 750 Ti 2GB
    PSU:Seasonic Platinum 660
    Monitor:Asus VE228HR
    Tower:Coolermaster Elite 430

    Yeah, it's the same old HEC platform, avoid if possible. Get a refund if you can, or stow the PSU away to serve as a backup/testing unit should your current CX fail.

    As it stands, the CX is the better PSU.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    here's a clear question that should have went in the OP.
