If you are worried about brief shutdowns,why not get a UPS?

I don't know about how reliable your power is, but here in New Jersey, USA, we regularly get power outages. Before UPS, brief power outages could could cause a computer to restart. Since we all went to excessive UPS backup, we've had but one blackout that caused all our AC machines to shut down: they ran out of UPS battery power. And that blackout was "only" nine hours.

Pre-UPS, be had a blackout that ran two days, and caused the back-up for my sump pump to run out of juice (I replaced it with a marine battery -- life counted in days).

And that's just blackouts. It doesn't count brownouts and ugly power. Also, we should worry about what happens if we are hit by another Carrington Event (look it up).

Maybe OP is worrying too much. But once bitten, twice shy. He may simply be showing some prudence.

I too get frequent power outages but do I really care that my computer shuts off? No.

When the power restarts, it looks ugly. No thanks.

Hi, JonnyGuru.

I was checking a review you have made about evga supernova p2 850w. In this review, you said that this model has OTP because you have seen a wire labeled OTP. So, my question is: have you ssen this in p2 650w and 750w models?

The 650 P2 has no OTP.

A bigger concern is that over-temperature protection is missing as well; this is one of the most basic protection features, especially in PSUs that feature semi-passive operation. Super Flower should definitely add OTP to its future Leadex platforms.

Nor does the 750 P2.
Quote:
The list of protection features is notably missing OCP for the +12V rail, since this is a single +12V rail PSU, and over-temperature protection. We strongly believe that all PSUs should implement OTP, especially the ones with a semi-passive fan mode.

If OTP really matters for you, get a lower efficiency RMx or a higher wattage G2/P2.... But at this level it shouldn't even matter imo.

True. If his nitpicking like this he might as well get the best.... Seasonic prime Titanium or AX1500i should be good for him
