    Default I wonder if this argument is founded.

    There are some who claim that the SuperFlower PSU is problematic.

    This is what he claims.

    ▶ Reasons for not recommending EVGA (Superflower OEM)
    1. Only EVGA (SuperFlower) OEMs have too high actual load rate cooling fan rotational speed (RPM), wind volume (CFM) - Why?

    For EVGA Superflower OEM psu, the cooling fan rotational speed (RPM) and wind capacity (CFM) are too high compared to other manufacturers because of the poor thermal design.
    The premium power of other manufacturers is not like this.
    EVGA Superflower OEM psu is rubbish.

    2. For EVGA Superflower OEM psu, it put electrolytic caps of 1000h lifetime on the modular board. Other manufacturers are not like this. In short, they are cutting costs in this way. EVGA G2, G3, P2, T2 are all applicable.

    3. Superflower psu is not a major company and lacks brand credibility.

    He claims so
    I wonder if this is a justification.

    I'm not.
    But they ain't that good.
    You get better stuff from other manufacturers. Wich kinda makes them bad because its always compared to the competition.

    Its not totally wrong.
    It is true that EVGA PSU in General tend to be on the louder side.
    Poor Thermal Design is one way to put it but its just a design decision from them that they choose to do that.

    And that's throughout the Board that EVGA tend to be on the louder side and others are better...

    Well, this is kinda irrelevant as the Caps on the modular board do not really matter...
    The thing is that the Caps they use here are sometimes General Purpose ones, wich isn't that great...

    Also irrelevant.
    It matters what you can do, not what others think that you can do.
    The normal Endusers tend to overestimate some Manufacturers because they do their stuff themselves - wich isn't necessarily an advantage...

    No, he has kinda a point.

    You could add that Super Flower regressed in terms of Protection, the Golden Green was made to be a 6 Rail unit but came with none. And OTP was only added later...

    Thank you very much for your valuable answer.
    As a result, I have a chance to choose a better psu.
    I chose SEASONIC instead of EVGA.

    Well, if Seasonic is any better? I don't know. I'd say they are both about equal...
    Well, Super Flower doesn't make no group regulated units no more...


    And I'd choose a 550W Super Flower Leadex probably...
    Or an FSP Hydro X...

    seasonic / superflower / fsp

    I would like you to tell me the name of the product you can recommend among the above brands.

    I want a high class of psu products.

    Or give me a website to refer to.
    Thank you again!!

    There are various brands of products.
    However, there are many products that do not sell in North America or Europe.
    (zalman / micronics / Abko / iguju / Coolmax / Coolermaster )

    You're in Korea? What does it matter if they sell in the N.A. or E.U.?

    This is not to say that it is bad because it is not sold in North America or Europe.

    However, the warranty period is generally short, and these companies may suddenly go bankrupt or disappear.

    So many people tend to prefer the famous manufacturer as much as possible.

    The same applies to the recent collapse of the powerrex. The Zalman Company has also experienced bankruptcy once.
