Seems like a cracking deal, my 650 was nearly 75 quid. How does the GQ compare to the G2 series?

Not sure, G2 10 year warranty and fully modular?

G2 is a better built psu from memory - but horses for corses.

Sorry, but would they be any good for light crypto mining? Mate asked me, and honestly no idea I have. Please.

TL:DR: It's a very good PSU, he rates it as follows...

Performance: 9

Functionality: 9.5

Value: 8.5 (largely irrelevant here, as the rating is based on US MSRP).

Build Quality: 10

Total Score: 9.2

Good deal but I wonder how many people need a 850W PSU unless you have a threadripper and 2 titans!

Assuming 6 GPUs, you'd be better off with the 1000W which they have for £122.99 which is also a steal.

if your mate cant calculate power needs by going on google and checking out a power calculator for his components I doubt crypto mining is for him.
Crypto mining is more complex than google!

the question you asked is terrible and this is why, if we were talking cars which most people are more fluent in you just asked this question...
"my mate has a car, should he put petrol or diesel in it?"
how would we know? maybe its neither it could even be electric, we have no details to work with!

sorry i seem a bit intolerant but i have had decades of having to be nice to people who asked IT questions that realistically were so stupid that it drove me insane.

In the 90s one person actually asked me if the reason their mouse wasn't working was because it wasn't plugged in!

Question wasn't about mining and its limits. No need for any calculators or lecture on any of its aspects. Question was simple:
Is this power supply good for mining? Does it have any qualities that suit it to it? Or maybe completely otherwise? Can someone give me a tip?
Your opinion on quality of it brings absolutely nothing on the subject. Especially when its wrong.

I don't have time and energy to through 15 reviews or 20 forums hoping that maybe actually someone mentions something valuable about this particular psu.
I was only hoping someone already knows and gives me few tips.

If you don't intend to help, keep your rants to your personal blog, where you can pour your heart out, maybe you'll find someone who cares.
Making people go through your creations that wasn't either on the subject or intended to help is plainly wasting their time.

I had hope that you might share some knowledge, yet obviously you would have to have it in first place...

I'm sorry, you seem to have misread I never said anything about mining and its limits either.

the calculator i spoke of was a POWER CALCULATOR which i clearly said, its used to calculate power requirements based on specific components, you imput the components into the calculator it works out your minimum wattage requirement.
you never asked about qualities before. you simply asked if it was good for crypto mining.
it has quite acceptable, some would say good ripple suppression and rail voltage stability for mining, in a normal pc the same psu would be classified as excellent but for mining you could want better but you don't need better.

you always have to calculate power consumption first, then look through wattage appropriate psu's first then pick a good quality one from there. don't assume wattage is all that changes with higher models, sometimes ones in the same series can vary heavily for example i cant remember if its g1 g2 or gq series the 650w was awesome but the same line the 750w wasn't great.

btw my original comment while harsh was made to help, to help you understand your question couldn't be answered. if i answered yes or no then i would have been wrong based on the fact i would have given you an answer based on a guess based on a poor question

if you don't understand now please don't resort to saying i don't know what I'm talking about.
