    Default EVGA new 'GD' series.

    https://www.vortez.net/news_story/ev..._supplies.html
    It is currently on sale at newegg...
    Actually I was trying to ask the oem but guessed it out while writing this post... FSP.

    So it might be ACRF... or even double forward I guess.

    Uh I am so stupid
    I thought it was a revision and didn't checked out the original ones

    but...




    I think this is a revision.
    The Y cap does not exist at that position in the older models,
    and there is a side venthole in the new, which is not in the older ones.

    Hmm... Not sure.

    But I'm sure they had to add that little vent on the inside because the primary heatsink's components were overheating.

    Cheaper than what?

    You can always get something cheaper than the next cheapest thing.

    FSP added that vent on some products recently...(I might be wrong, but never seen side bents before) like HYDRO PRO. So guess that's a new platform too.

    Also wondering that those sidevents has any practical effects....? Ensuring airflow around the mosfets?

    Yes, those front vents increase venting and also heat up the opt/5,25" Drives if mounted on the top...

    Thus its possible that those things reduce the temperature of the heatsink behind it.

    EVGA GD 500, 600 and 700 are completely different than the 2017 GD 450/550/650. It's not just a revision and they don't use the same platform. They're made by FSP, but I don't know on what design.
