    Default Phanteks AMP Series 650W review @ Tom's Hardware

    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...-supply-review

    The Phanteks AMP Series 650W offers strong performance, excellent build quality and silent operation. All the above are provided at a fair price, so this product follows keeps up with its direct competitors in this wattage category, namely the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold with similar capacity (GX-650) that uses the same platform and the Corsair RM650x.

    The Phanteks Amps line consists of three models with their capacities ranging from 550W to 750W. All are fully modular and are certified by both 80 PLUS and Cybenetics, so besides the 80 PLUS Gold badge, the PH-P650G also has the ETA-A and LAMBDA-A+ efficiency and noise badges, respectively.

    Solid PSU. If price is the same/lower than Seasonic it's worth considering.

    At least in the US, it's already the best PSU for its price category IMO

    At $90 the 550W version of this PSU is $14+ under competing options such as the Corsair RMx 650W

    Still not sure why Seasonic struggles so much with low load efficiency.
