    Default Vengeance Silver 650W and 750W reviews at Tweak PC

    Since I personally worked on this project, I would like to say in my opinion it is the best......

    Just kidding.

    Unfortunately, not only did the Vengeance Silver review fly under the radar, the product did too.

    Sales asked for a Silver product because the Bronze market is so saturated. So I decided to expand the Vengeance line with an LLC resonant platform. Only 650W and 750W because lower wattage LLC resonant are too expensive. Decided to "kitchen sink" the product with a Blue Jay fan with Zero RPM fan mode and a single/multiple +12V rail switch.

    Hopefully they decide to SKU this up somewhere other than Germany.

    Great review! I miss internal pics, it would be interesting to see how HEC made it.

    Vengeance Silver is widely available in Spain:
    https://www.pccomponentes.com/corsai...r-semi-modular
    https://www.pccomponentes.com/corsai...r-semi-modular

    The problem is that the price seems rather high. 650W costs the same as Whisper 550 / Formula 750, and more than Focus+550. 750W costs about the same as Whisper 750, and just a little less than TX750M. Yes, you get a more silent PSU (vs TX750M) but most people will see that it's Silver and not Gold and they will discard it... By the way, is it using a MCU for the fan control again?

    Edit: I'll fix my avatar

    But this isn't a German only SKU like the first Vengeance was, there is also a UK and EU SKU. It's available all over Europe.

    The problem is it's just not an interesting PSU, because it's to expensive. Only 10 euro/dollar cheaper than a RM650x and 10 euro/dollar more than a TX650M Gold.

    Yes. It is a global SKU. It's unfortunate that the Bronze one never got SKUd up outside of Germany.

    If you do only look at efficiency, it doesn't seem like as good of a value as TX-M. But you're also looking at street prices. Since Vengeance Silver is new, they have not settled on a street price and are currently selling at MSRP.

    The Vengeance Silver is supposed to be $5 to $10 CHEAPER than TX-M. Why they're trying to sell it for $10 more is beyond me.

    Over 3 months it's available for a year already, it isn't new anymore. Prices settle in a couple of days, weeks tops, not years.

    Then it would sell, but that also means it would be cheaper than a CX650M.

    I guess it would make even more sense to upgrade the PSU to 80PLUS Gold, because as you said ones before, 80PLUS Silver doesn't sell. If this PSU should be like 10 dollars cheaper than a TX650M, it's probably possible to upgrade the efficiency to 80PLUS Gold and give it the same price (or even less) than the TX650M. Then you don't even need a TX650M or could call this one TX650M.

    I don't know why pricing is all screwed up. It's as if nobody is paying attention in the different regions. We maintain a COG chart that shows the cost of every product. We set a retail price based on that cost and a required Corsair margin and the typical margin most retailers mark up their products by. Yet by the time the product hits the market, the damn prices are all over the place.

    I thought 'Vengeance' was a Corsair brand for RAM. I think Vengeance LPX is the only lowish-profile DDR4 for sale ATM.
    CPU: Core i7 8700k, HT enabled, all 6 cores OC'd to 4.8GHz, Vcore = 1.24v
    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X
    SSD1: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB TLC; SSD2: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB 3-bit MLC
    HD: WD 500GB (old); Case: LIAN LI PC-7H Aluminum ATX Mid Tower
