    Default So what about G Skill Power Supplies?

    🤔 How come no one hasn't bothered reviewing them yet? Can Jonny review them? I have one and its working well for me so far. I'm not at all an expert on power supplies so I can't really say for sure how good they are compared to others, but they look like they check off all the must have's for a good power supply. I'd still like to see someone actually review them though. Here is the one I have linked below.

    I reckon no review samples were sent.

    🤔 Yeah, but I don't see why the usual dudes that reviews power supplies can't just buy one and analyze it with a fine tooth pick.

    It's usually not worth to buy two samples of a PSU which the brand won't supply as samples. They will be shitty anyway.

    You can also buy one yourself and donate it for testing yourself if you're that interested.

    From the original link; how is it that the 115Vac efficiency is greater than for 230Vac at low load?

    Just a puzzle, I like puzzles; like the asymmetric bridge diodes, or the high voltages on the bulk capacitor when running APFC on a rectangular wave.

    Some may have noticed the typo in the graph

    Effiency instead of Efficiency

    I wrote them a quick email about this and they replied to say they would send a MicroSD card and some freebies; wish more companies were like this.

    I see it is already fixed

    1) Cost. Most people don't have the resources to spend a couple hundred dollars to pick up a power supply to tear apart just for funsises.

    2) G.SKILL is not exactly a eyeball driver so you aren't even going to do well on the page hits.

    3) The market is tight right now. So getting anything is a whole lot of fun.
