The $84.99 Amazon price/link for the EVGA Supernova 650 P2 is a lie. It points to a 650 GS. The Amazon price for the 650 P2 is $103.61

Funny thing - Cooler Master the PCU states MTBF of 100'000 hours but the PCU fan is rated MTBF of 30'000 hour.

it means that the fun will force you to replace a healthy PC - that issue should be part of the PCU review.

I don't understand why manufacturers focus only on high W units with quality. For example looking at corsair's lineup they have either low CX-M units with 5y warranty but its Bronze only but if you want something better only choice is RM (TM doesn't sell and SF is expensive) which is 10y + Gold and its only one that have 550 unit...
I mean even 550 may be more than enough for single GPUs. For example now I have fx8350 and hd7950 (which are not exactly power efficient, ok its not 290X but still...) + few drives on good 9y old HX520 and max I measured at wall was ~380
Almost any other new CPU and GPU will eat less than current setup I think, so its pointless to get big psu (like 750 if I wanted to stay with HX line) as when you are out of game (my game time is ~40% of pc usage) and browse/watch movies draw is quite low and will most likely fall out of high efficiency zone of psu...

Also confused by our local pricing...mainly for evga P2
Corsair CX650M 80eur but 70$
Corsair RM550x 102eur but 100$
Corsair RM650x 113eur but 110$
Corsair RM650i 129eur
EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G2 96eur but 83$
EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2 109eur
EVGA SuperNOVA 650 P2 125eur but 85$ overpriced like hell? or rather extremely cheap in US

If you can get your hands on one of Seasonic's X-series (650, 750, 850W 80+ gold PSUs) I'd highly recommend. The Prime is based on them, they very nearly reach 80 plus platinum spec (that prime has), have 7 years warranty (instead of 10 with prime), but - this is where it gets very interesting - X series are usually 1/3 the price! I bought my X-750 for 80 from Amazon.co.uk, whereas the 750W Prime is a minimum of 200 everywhere else. Very happy with this PSU
