Sorry can't take anything associated with that moron serious. Do you get an automatic 'Tier S' if you buy an ad spot on one of his various YouTube channels?

On another note it has a big red X on it, so must be good

X factor?
1100 comes A--

But above the B+ "mid tier! range


If i have learnt anything from LTT its that they have unlimited money to test absolutely anything they want and sometimes are just a little harsh on these budget bits , for this price ill take A-- any day, its 1100W FFS, well worth the cash for most peoples units!

HEATY!!

I would share the negative views on Linus. However, it's not written by Linus - it just happens to be posted on his website's forum. The testing procedures and requirements for each tier are clearly outlined. If you look at the range of PSUs on there it's clearly not a case of buying the top spot.

If you can spend a bit more and get something made with better components that provide measurable benefits, plus you can easily get a much longer warranty than 3 years.... At this end of the market if you really need a 1100 watt PSU you'll be spending good money on the graphics cards and processor etc. Doesn't make sense to cheap out on the PSU.

If he was pimping one of these PSUs on one of his channels due to paid sponsorship you can bet his team of merry obsqequious mods would remove anything negative said about it.
What on earth do you need 1100W of power for these days? I’d rather get a 600-800W decent rated unit from Corsair or EVGA than an Aerocool, that’ll still provide ample power for even the most demanding gamer/geek. If you are into the whole overclocking/multi GPU/compute thing, no point in saving a few quid on a PSU from a company that is known to push out some real junk. The only good PSU they make is the Project 7.

Can’t find any reviews on it but older comments and reviews suggest it’s a budget line anyway. There’s also a load of 1-star ratings on Amazon - but no comments?

Doubt all those towards the top of the list are passing Linus a bung. There's other sources of information too. The warranty length of 3 years suggests the level of confidence the manufacturer has in their PSU when others have 10 years. I have had an Antec go dodgy just after warranty expired though lol.
Good price for the spec, shame it looks like something straight outta the 90’s
I bought one of these and set it up the other day, All good for me and easy set up.
Bought this, fitted it and it doesn't work. Tested it. It's no good. Going back
'You wouldn't see me dead with this'... The trouble is, you probably would.
