Hi, first sorry if I type the typo / error gramma. English is not my native lang. :disrelieved:

So, I have read though both review from Tom's hardware by Aris and it both very clear and detailed.
Currently I am bidding between 2 new psu to ensure my AC stability and further upgrade [I am currently using corsair CX750m as I provided by retailer].

I found quite a deal for DeepCool GamerStorm DQ-M V2L 850W Power Supply Review | Tom's Hardware (tomshardware.com) around USD 120
and NZXT C Series 750W Power Supply Review | Tom's Hardware (tomshardware.com) around USD108

from both review, I found that Deepcool one is make from CWT where also OEM for Corsair, I believe it place around "corsair RM 2018/2021" level.
But NZXT using "Seasonic Focus Plus Gold" Platform which I believe I try to match the "RMx" seems work better with 220v level but fail on few minor test.

Internal part of both is very similar [full bridge seems to be same] but NZXT provide Incap-cable, Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan + Button for deactivate the passive operation mode.
but Seasonic provide more wattage.

I need opinion from you guy, in this case which one will you go for.

  • My computer using i5 10400 [no OC] + B460 atx & 6600xt + 1080p monitor ( I know 750w seems really overkill now but just to ensure and currently 750w is cheaper than 650w for C model)
  • I mostly run casual RPG gaming + daily office work,
  • Might upgrade when Alder lake / ZEN4 release + upgrade to 6700xt / 3060ti later (when everything get better).
  • My case have fan facing down ( NX 600 no option for facing up, it is closed area)
It might better going with C750w instead?
and it can deactivate the semi-passive and 750 seems overkill for my daily use anyway?


Appreciates your kind opinion! 😀

Hi I got my answer, I will go with NZXT instead, As DQ850-M-V2L have problem - [2] High wattage CWT GPX based units have problems with failing burn-in test under sub 90VAC input, treat as 230V only, (Jonny Guru).
