Isn't that a little over-priced for a 650? I can't imagine these "platinum grade" PSUs being all that special.

It's fully modular and closer to 92% efficient, they just have to state 80% as a minimum.

I always feel better spending well on a PSU - I'd rather have whatever is the 'best' even if it is bells and whistles

yes it is overpriced. Ignore the heat

£88.78 from Amazon Warehouse if you are so inclined. I bought a EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2, 80+ GOLD 650W from Amazon Warehouse a couple of weeks back for £58 and it was spotless. These high end EVGAs really are well put together.

In comparison to what?

Show me this model, cheaper, new.

Waiting.

Tier 1 psu but you could get the 750w version for £112.97 from Amazon.

Ridiculous price for a power supply, cold.

You might not like it, but over £100 for 650 watts is crazy nonsense regardless of manufacturer. Keep wasting your time waiting on me posting it cheaper. I don't care much for wasting money but you can do that too if you like.

What's the warranty terms if you buy 2nd hand from amazon warehouses?

Well the invoice from Amazon doesn’t state Warehouse. So if you go to EVGA direct, I think this has 10 years on it.
Assuming it wasn’t previously registered.

Okay thanks, will keep an eye on it as I'm needing PSU for a NAS build.

I bought a 2nd hand Corsair psu, it didn't last long.

Luckily Corsair refunded £470 due to damages caused but it took a few months, they even sent me a brand new psu. I never told them that it was 2nd hand but the warranty was still valid.

£10.50ish a year if it only lasts until the 10 year warranty is up.
If you're powering a PC with components totalling the same as the average monthly wage, do you not want a little bit of quality with the power supply?

I bought a cheap "unbranded" 700 watt PSU from a well known online retailer - it popped (blue flash, sparks and magic smoke) 3 weeks later taking my motherboard and CPU with it. That experience cost me more than the asking price of this.

The connector arrangements have changed very little in recent years and I think this will last you several builds.

Finally, it makes much more sense to me pound for pound to buy a quality PSU that reflects the actual power demands and cable management of an average system (e.g. 650W being enough) than spending the same amount on a poor quality 2kW PSU that is totally over specced for the application.

This is all subjective though, and I appreciate that people who spend £999 on an iPhone X will then use a Poundland charger on it.

Well the trick is being able to de-code the OEM from EVGA's model numbers. The OP forgot the most important part of the model number although the SuperNova bit does hint at it: this is the EVGA SuperNova 650W P2 and for this the OEM is SuperFlower using their Leadex Platinum platform, and it scored 9.8 from JonnyGuru:

Platinum grade efficiency and fully modular. That's not cheap, no matter what wattage you go for. It matters too, at least, it can matter.

You could get a really cheap PSU for £20-30 that has no efficiency rating. In the long run, it'll likely cost you more or the same due to higher electricity bills of it drawing more power from the wall to power the same components. That's if it even lasts long enough and doesn't die within a year. Possibly taking your PC components with it and costing you hundreds of pounds.

I just bought an EVGA 750 GQ, 80+ GOLD 750W( 210-GQ-0750-V3) for £83 off Amazon so what is better about the PSU in this deal other than double the warranty to make it worth the extra price?

It's a genuine question as i'm not a system builder so other than it's power rating and being a decent brand I wouldn't know what else to look for in a psu.

My psu in my XPS 8700 has failed so just googled for a replacement and got the above after reading reviews.

Not much.

P2 is 92+ % efficient Platinum, GQ is 80 Gold.

GQ is semi modular, P2 is fully modular.

Either way you made a good choice, any EVGa Gold+ is a good PSU.

Thanks yeah I went semi modular as you have to have the motherboard connection so no point paying extra for full modular in my view.

It's just turned up so hope it fits my XPS now!

OK not looking promising can anyone help please? The motherboard connector on the new psu is 20 pin and the original power supply is 24 pin for the motherboard connector.

Have I got to get a different power supply?

Are you sure it's not a 20+4, if it's two leads you just connect the 20 with the 4 side by side.

It is but i thought the 4 pin was for the 12v power port on the motherboard? Or is that a seperate cable?

Is the 4 pin 12v socket for one of the 4 pin cables marked cpu? My original psu had a brown 4 pin cable coming out of it to that 12v 4 pin socket.

ATX doesn't always come 24, you have 20+4, just put them
together

Thanks I have done. Its the other motherboard connector i'm trying to workout which is the 12v one. I can't think it's anything other than the cables marked cpu.

I didn't expect it to be multiple choice with the cables when I ordered a new psu I thought it would be obvious and look exactly the same as the original psu that i've taken out! i.e. 1 x 24 pin connector and 1 x 4 pin 12v connector.

Well powered it on but got the same problem it had before i changed the psu so not the psu. Asked Amazon very nicely and they have accepted a refund for it so Amazon once again come up trumps for customer service.
