I do agree on this, but if someone here kinda get's criticized for going 1000watt platinum i don't get that. It won't bite him and is his choice to spend that money for a good and probably great psu.Titanium psus are way expensive. Pre covid they were usually 50%+ more than a similar gold. Good gold units can still hit 88-90%, being ~5% worse on efficiency while costing a lot less makes good the right psus.
If you want to throw a 1000w Platinum PSU at everything be my guest, but framing it as good advice and knocking anything less than that is where you get criticized. Thats what he did if you read his first post. To his points nobody here has ever said to run a 350w PSU at 90-100%, but that sure is how he made it sound like our discussion has gone.I do agree on this, but if someone here kinda get's criticized for going 1000watt platinum i don't get that.

Looks like he talks about what he does, not what he recommends. Looking at why he does it makes enough sense for me, even when he might get away with an 750/850watts psu,Building my own computers, not for resale, I will always oversize my PSU anyway. Let me elaborate a little bit here though. Just because you are running a 1000 watt PSU doesn't mean that you are pulling that wattage, it just means that it is capable of doing it. So if your rig is pulling 300 watts it will pull that regardless of the PSU size assuming it can handle it. But when it comes to a point of efficiency, assuming a very high end PSU, the larger supply may be more efficient at given loads. This is due to the cooling necessary at different percentages of load to the PSU. A 1000 watt PSU pulling 30% in contrast with a 350 Watt power supply pulling high 90% will be running the same load, but the smaller PSU will be in full active cooling while the larger one is probably not even running its fan. The other, and more important thing, is about voltage stability. As clock frequency continues to rise and voltage levels drop the need for dead clean power has never been more important. The bigger power supply will usually have dedicated rails and bigger caps that will separate and hold things when an overload happens. I have been around more than one undersized junk PSU that when a fan started pulling funny the computer would occasionally crash. For me on any build I will always get the biggest, Titanium + rated PSU I possibly can. I have just had too many problems trying to save a few bucks and building an unstable rig.
Whether he really gains 16% is something else when considering that a gold psu already does well. You would/should never buy just a 80+ psu for such a build so the comparison is abit off.I pull my rig pretty hard all of the time (folding at home) and gaining 16% energy efficiency. I run folding at home constantly on my threadripper and for the 500 watts I pull continuously the titanium saves me around $85 a year in electricity over the 80+. I hardly consider that to be a huge waste of money.
You can nitpick context all you want. You can assume his intentions all you want. If you wade into a discussion about how you do it, even for your own stuff, then you open yourself to be criticized especially if your choices don't make sense. He describes why he does it and his methodology. He may not say "I recommend doing this" but if you post an in depth post about what you do and why... Well that damn sure sounds like you think thats the best way to me.Looks like he talks about what he does, not what he recommends.

But in the end i only see him talk about what he does with his rig.
Lets go back to the first thing you posted that I replied toThought that was having the ability to give your opinion, but maybe i'm wrong.
You took issue with criticism of his decisions. Despite it being valid criticism.I do agree on this, but if someone here kinda get's criticized for going 1000watt platinum i don't get that. It won't bite him and is his choice to spend that money for a good and probably great psu.
Yay another EVGA PSU model i havent heard of
Yes, EVGA has worked their way through the alphabet now and is working on AA, BB, CC etc. at this point. Jebus, what a crying shame. They need to put their product manager in charge of graphics cards, in charge of power supplies, because they don't do this dumb crap in that segment.
Yeah, I don't think this ever panned out quite as planned considering two years later there are only 80 total card models listed as having been tested, and only TWO from EVGA. A good idea, but it looks like it did not catch on.I'd like to call attention to something seemingly important and great for the industry that seems to be going under the radar of most but a few sites. Aris Mpitziopoulos, the guy who does the Toms and TPU PSU reviews and is in charge of http://cybenetics.com is working on (actually it's done I think) the "Powenetics Project". If we're all sick and tired of people bickering and arguing about the true power consumption of GPUs and other hardware under different loads, this is finally something that can alleviate this.
It can be read about here: https://www.cybenetics.com/index.php?option=powenetics
There is a recent interview that someone on JG posted here:View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSx1RVXRmJ8
This system or means of measuring power he designed will actually be available to anybody who wants to spend $500-600 for it. I don't know how it exactly works but he says as long as you know how to build a computer you'd have the knowledge to use his power measurement system. It works with custom software he designed on the computer that allows you to read the data specifically as so:
It also now supports CPUs. The end plan is that there will be a large database on cybenetics.com containing all the different CPUs and GPUs that will have exact power measurements in place in full detail. We will no longer have to scour the Internet for detailed reviews, and we will be able to see where power calculators online are at fault since this will be the most accurate data.
Just thought I'd point it out, as I personally think it's awesome. I'm not going to dish out $500 for my own but companies like Toms I'm sure will acquire them and possibly even use them in future reviews for power measurements.
In fact, I see we've had this exact discussion before, in this very thread.Fair
In my head I hear a frustrated Morty going: "Aw, G, Rick!"Enter the SuperNOVA G+, the new and improved fully-modular power supply line-up from EVGA with an 80+ Gold Efficiency rating. These power supplies pick up where the award-winning EVGA 1600 G2 and 1300 G2 power supplies left off and continue the tradition of EVGA quality and performancewww.evga.com
A new model called the G+
Not to be confused with the g1+
