    Default "Best" gaming PSU (awful spanish web article)

    Other awful article with buy recommendations in a Spanish web site.
    The title is "20 besto gaming PSU"
    http://gamingpotion.com/mejores-fuen...-alimentacion/

    Among ths 20 we have 12 from:
    -5 are PSU from Aerocool low-cost (KCAS, Strike X)
    -4 are Tacens (of course)
    -3 are Nox (nearly impossible to find a Spanish web site without Tacens & Nox recommendation)

    And the other 8?
    -3 Enermax: 2 MAxPRo not very good and a NAXN)
    -3 Antec HCG (but 2 are without DC-DC, ancient Seasonic GB bronze)
    -2 Corsair: 1 VS (not great), 1 RMx (the only good one from 20)

    Oh my god!
    edit: Oh! I wrote "gamong" PSU, ROLF

    Let me guess, all the summaries talk about is cables, efficiency and fan.

    The good thing is that in some Spanish forums (ElChapuzasInformatico, ProfesionalReview) there are people saying that this article is rubbish.

    https://foro.elchapuzasinformatico.c...ra-gaming.html
    https://foro.profesionalreview.com/m...es-gaming.html

    The only place in Spain where people are telling the truth about rubbish PSU are a few forums with a few people telling ot every day (some of them are in this forum too as capxoff & breixobaloca). But all the Spanish harwdare webs are awful in PSU (well, apart from RealHardTech)

    It's TOO DIFFICULT to include 18 horrible recommendations on a list of 20 power supplies xD

    Only 16 horrible. The 2 old Antec HCG are mediocre but not horrible
    Don't remember if Enermax NAXN were decent (Max Pro aren't good)
    So there is only one good a few mediocre and bad the others

    Edit: the Enermax NAXN 500AGT it's a old (2010?) non 80+ certified CWT 408 W in +12V. Absolutely not a good PSU

    Well, now that I think about it, IIRC the GB-based HCG have a rather decent protection IC, so those aren't horrible, yeah.

    I wasn't meaning horrible PSUs, I was meaning horrible recommendations. A mediocre PSU for more than 55€ (Spanish market) is an example of horrible recommendation. I would say too that the S12II itself is just mediocre, but recommending it in 2017 and for 60-90€ is an horrible recommendation.

    Yes. HCG 520 & 620 are GB Bronze platform, as S12II & M12II. HCG 750 is a better platform.

    I agree. Were quite good (but not top) when launched, but not now

    Oh yes horrible recomendation

    To summarize, among 20 PSUs:
    -1 very good, Corsair RMx
    -1 good (ma non troppo) Antec HCG 750
    -2 mediocre the other 2 Antec HCG
    -16 bad/very bad
    It isn't easy giving so bad recommendations!
    Damm even a 50€ (or less) EVGA W1-500W is much better than the 12 Tacens, Nox, Aerocool or the 3 Enermax MaxPower & NAXN
