    Default SIrtec/High Power Bronze 1000w Direct 12 BR II (any info?)

    Long time lurker here. Heya all !.

    Anyome have any info on this unit from Sirtec/High Power :
    High Power Bronze 1000w Direct 12 BR II->
    http://www.highpower-tech.com/ID/pro...20140912160344

    Ive found reviews of the older unit BR I ( http://www.mega-labs.com/direct12br_page_5.html ) seemed decent enough albeit hot exhaust temps average build quality but at leaat it had a full complement of japanese caps.
    I also own a much older unit the Highpower 1000w G14C thats running with 6 x rx 580 gpus , but the exhaust temps are scorching hot and its already very old 7+ years, i was looking for a cheap replacement for this.

    This new one reportedly has only main cap stated as japanese and theres no info anywhere about the other components , i havent found any dissasembly pics either and its not yet 80+ rated.

    TL DR Can i trust that unit to be at least as good as this ancient 80+ white unit im using now, and run 6x rx 580 24h/7 ? The price is literally half that of comparable corsair seasonic silverstone or superflower units

    I will plug my site here. http://www.orionpsudb.com/platforms#Sirfa
    There's an entry for Direct12 Bronze II; you can see an internal picture (it's double forward with DC-DC) and a link to review of the stock one. There's also a list of PSUs based on the same platform, one of them is Rosewill Hive S reviewed by Jeremy here. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory5&reid=408

    It's a good unit, but perhaps there are some better choices for your use cases.

    its in ron . 1 eur =4.55 Ron , 1$=4 ron
    What about this unit - > Chieftec APS-850CB . Is it decent?
    https://www.forit.ro/surse/chieftec/...2B+Bronze+850W

    EDIT: After further digging i stumbled upon this unit :
    http://www.chieftec.eu/en/psus/ps-2/...gps-1250c.html

    Again seems really new from i can tell, maybe based on the old Navitas 1250w from Chieftec . Its 200 euros, which seems better bang for the money for 250w more wats and 80+ gold VS 1000w for 120 euro and 80+ Bronze
    I assume this one would be a wiser choice? (6xRX 580 for mining 24/7 operation)

    I'm not sure how much power exactly you're going to consume, so perhaps someone more experienced can comment.

    Power usage should be about 130w x 6 plus 50w or so for the rest of the system.
    So about 830w worst case scenario , i'm guessing 800w constant load 24/7.
