    Default Sharkoon SilentStorm Cool Zero

    Does anyone recommend this "Sharkoon SilentStorm Cool Zero 80 Plus Gold Full Modular" PSU? It seems great value for its specs. I couldnt find any reviews on the internet.

    Not really because it is the opposed of what you just said. It's just to expensive for the quality and performance. Or is it much cheaper in Turkey compared to West-Europe?

    400W is sufficient, 500-550W recommended, 600W is way overkill.
    And if you're low on budget, you might want to look at the best for the buck, not restrict yourself by arbitrary limits that prevent you from getting the best you want.

    So look at 450 or 550W Bitfenix Formula, Whisper M, be quiet Straight Power instead.


    Disclaimer:
    I have a Ryzen 3700X in my X370 Board, X570 aren't much worse than my ASUS X370-F for the most part.
    I had a 5700XT for a time, wich was around 100W less than my VEGA64+ - wich is at around 450W or so in many cases.

    You don't want a shitty 600W unit, you want a good 450-550W one!

    Lots of reviews judging by their official page but whether they're reputable or not is another story... at least some of them included a teardown It looks to be a Sirtec ( kudos to @breixobaloca ), not sure whether Astro Lite or one of the Astro Golds or even something lower in the range with a 80+ Gold logo plastered on, for I'm not on that level of expertise just yet Judging solely by the existing data, it's not the best, not the worst. Now I haven't found insanely thorough tests so it may still be a bit of an unexplored field.

    The question is though, at a hefty price, why even bother? Who knows what tricks this sort of a manufacturer may pull for retail units if they very likely had a smaller OEM (Power Giga I think) install a fake Japanese bulk cap into one of their cheaper "Bronze" units in the past... And is it (=this Sirtec) a really out of this world platform in the first place, especially at this asking price?..

    I personally have never made it past R13; it really isn't an easy thing to do.
