A consolidated list of Desktop PSU/SMPS (Power Supply Units/Switch-Mode Power Supplies) for comparison of different brands and models (the link to the list below opens to a shared Google Spreadsheet, no sign-in is required):

Link: POWER SUPPLY UNIT COMPARISON TABLE - A Sortable Database of Desktop PC SMPS
(873 PSU Models listed as of last update)
(Antec, be quiet, BitFenix, Corsair, EVGA, Fractal Design, FSP, Seasonic, Silverstone, Thermaltake)



The main purpose of this database/table is to quickly and easily compare detailed specifications of numerous PSUs from different brands/models (not limited to models of a single brand which most manufacturer websites can only do). The table also offers filtering and sorting options, depending on the features one is looking for in a desktop PC power supply unit.

For example, one can filter the comparison to show only PSU models with Infineon MOSFETs, or, those PSUs with Half-Bridge or Full-Bridge topologies, or, those PSUs having 2x CPU 4+4pin connectors, or, one can filter and show only the models with stickers/labels of a certain color. One can also sort the filter or unfiltered table, say, the largest/smallest fan sizes, most/least number voltage or amperage on a certain rail, longest/shortest length, most/least number of SATA or Molex connectors, etc.

Photos of each PSU (product photo/box, side view with fan facing up, side view with fan facing down, rear or AC-side connector view, top or fan face view, and front or DC-side connectors view) are included and are also made to scale (1px : 2mm or 3mm) so that one can easily visualize how large or small the PSU is in relation to another PSU when compared side-by-side in terms of spatial clearance and aesthetics/looks.

References to various professional reviews and direct links to manufacturer's website are found at the far right end of the table for each PSU.

Specifications compared include the following:

PRODUCT INFORMATION, REVIEWS, AND RATINGS
  • Link to Official Product/Manufacturer Website
  • Ratings from different professional review sites (including scores/verdicts)
The table was created 01 November 2017 and was only uploaded after 1.5 years of initial research/compilation of data and photo editing. As of this posting, it is still a work-in-progress (update history below will be updated from time to time). All information were researched and verified to the best of my ability based on manufacturer's data and reviews, if there are discrepancies/errors, let me know so I can immediately rectify the mistake.

It may take me a while to complete this whole list (am doing this on my free time), so, kindly check back for more updates (especially on some info not yet provided and other products not yet included). Thanks and hope these information helps a lot.

Amazing list!
Could you please add VENGEANCE Series™ 650M — 650 Watt 80 PLUS® Silver Certified PSU? The silver 2018 model
Thank you!
The newer 2018 Vengeance M series (Silver) has been in the list, you might have missed it (as I haven't edited the photos yet). The PSU in question is listed in the table as:

Corsair Vengeance 650M (2018) (RPS0105 / 75-003440 / CP-9020175)

There are a couple basic info (and a review link), but detailed component specs are not yet available as of this time.

That's what I meant, its specs are blank :X everybody's putting in on tier A but there are no reviews as to why, so I thought your list could help..

I created an account just to show my gratitude to this post. The amount of effort this takes is tremendous, especially out of your free time.
This is what the PC building community needs. It's a great start to draw people away from the stupidly subjective "tiers".
