    According to my records, it was a CX430 that I put in a donated system. I remember the system. It had an i7 860 CPU, which tells you how old it was. I got the PSU because it was inexpensive but not a potential bomb.
    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
    PSU: Seasonic Platinum 660W

    It's gotten to the point that you automatically get Gold, or even Silver with some margin applied, simply by using LLC.
    ^this

    You also have the devils circle problem with 750W and higher. If you need it, we are usually talking about a 2000-3000 System with either an Intel LGA20xx or LGA3467 or AMD TR4 Socket System with the according CPUs and Ultra High end GPUs such as nVidia x80ti and similar...


    And what do you save? 20?? On a system like this:

    That's the Problem:
    If you don't have the money for a good, mid range Gold unit (such as Bitfenix Formula), you don't have the Hardware that needs it. Thus a Cheap, 80plus Bronze unit only makes sense in up to 600W.

    The only reason to make a cheap 700W unit is because people believe that they need 700W for their 200W budget system (with something like a 4 Core Intel or 6 Core AMD and, if you're lucky, an RX580 or probably an RX570 or GTX 1050ti)...

    The CX430 was NOT LLC, though.
