    Testsystem

    • Prozessor: Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition @ 4.4 GHz
    • Grafikkarte: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
    Good luck with testing a 700W PSU on that...

    "Tests" on gamezoom don't deserve to be called so.

    Guess they give nice evaluation and lots of awards…that's better than thorough analysis which points to many problems and flaws, in the worst case followed by FAILED evaluation, isn't it?

    Yepp, that's exactly the way it works.
    tinpoint took a closer look in the past, e.g. he found tests of the efficiency of a 230VAC-only unit @115VAC.

    Lol, good they did not overload it. While the PFC should be actually able to handle it to some point, the silicon is usually weaker (for half the currents) to save few pennies.

    Actually my Xilence A+ survived 115V input which I applied by mistake. Anyway, I don't trust the Gamezoom results too much.

    As stated, it can either withstand it and run OK, maybe a bit overheating; turn off; or run until some of the semiconductors explode

    I won't disagree. Sadly there are no other reviews for this unit out.

    You may want to flame Enermax for that instead ;-)

    At 100% load? On which time period?
    IMO that would point out still good oversizing on the primary side since the units are quite cheap and haven't got the cheapest secondary design.

    Yeah that's unusual because Enermax is a well known label, ins't it? oO

    Oh I don't blame you for posting such reviews if you think I do.
    I know that you'd avoid gamezoom if it's possible - but not everyone in this forum might know about this site.
