    Default Whisper M 750 vs Revolution DF 750

    Hi,

    I'm in the market for a new PSU for a 3080 based config.

    It will be paired with a R5 3600 (for now, a beefier Zen 3 upgrade is likely), B450 Tomahawk, 16GB DDR4 3733, 2 SSD / 1 7200RPM HDD (all SATA) and 5 fans (2x140 + 3 x120)

    I have a RM550x v2 for now, and while it might very well be fine with everything at stock with a 3080, I'm looking to upgrade to a 750W PSU as I'm sure I'll want to overclock the 3080 and push the power target


    After looking at different models I'm debating between the two in the title. (both at the same price around 100)

    Also looked at other alternatives (RM750x/750, Toughpower GF1, SP11...) but they're more expensive

    Looking at the data on Cybenetics the Enermax has a more relaxed fan profile but the Whisper M has a longer warranty and, I remember reading, very good build quality.

    Slightly leaning towards the Enermax but was looking for other opinions on the matter by people who own either one or, even better, compared them.


    Thanks!

    Don't buy a PSU for a graphics card that doesn't exist yet. When it's released and tested, you will know which PSU is appropriate, and if you even need to ditch your current unit at all.

    Well, I'd say all indications are that 550 watt is not going to handle a heavy overclock of the 3080.
    I'd put it at 95% certain.

    that said, the real timing issue is when you actually get the 3080 card.
    My guess is that it is going to be a nearly paper launch.

    It may take you until december or even March 2021 to actually get your hands on the product.
    By then, the supply of PSU may well be improved significantly.

    Covid-19 must end eventually.

    Reviews are out today, so wait a couple hours.

    Given nVidia already confirmed scarce availability (and honestly, plenty of people have predicted that based on past launches), it might take a lot longer to actually get your hands on one and/or pay quite a bit more than suggested price in the process.
