Wait since it's 80+ gold that means it had to have been tested at 100% load right?
Since it has DC to DC, a +5V and +3.3V load is a load on the +12V, so that shouldn't be an issue.Going from memory, 80+ tests at 25C as well. Its going to be hotter than that in your case. They also allow more load on the 3.3/5V rails. Usually in our tests we put a 1A load on each. 80+ does 5A? I don't remember. Both of these will allow a unit to pass but fail in real world. If it does have a real 80+ cert than its probably not 100% garbage. There isn't really a good way to know how good it is until it's really tested.
If you would've read the first post in this thread, under the EVGA section:Thank you. Was worrying about the psu. May i ask is this psu a good one? The review is kinda mixed. And does the rog strix 3080 OC consume more watt then other version?
Good models are the B2, GQ, G2, G2L, G3, P2 and T2 models. Seems that the EVGA G5 series might be best avoided. The OEM is FSP on the one reliable review so far which was for the 1000w model, and while likely not strictly FSP's fault, the unit did not look like a worthy successor to the G2 or even the G3, which itself was not as good as the G2 but still better than most units out there. There are other, better choices than the G5 at this price point including their own G2 models, which, are getting hard to find. I think even the GQ units would be a better choice.
Someone bought one and opened it up and posted here: http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?17849-Apevia-Prestige-Teardown
Does have DC to DC. A little anemic, but....
So basically with this setup i dont need to worry about its down side right? Sorry kinda new to this building a pc.The G3 is a good PSU, but it has one problem that is what causes mixed opinions online. Essentially the OCP is not set properly, meaning the PSU will let you draw more power than the PSU can reliably provide, which can cause damage to both your hardware and I would assume the PSU.
Your PC won't exceed 850w, so Its not an issue.
Yes, that is correct. Your system is about a 735w maximum power consumption under worst case scenarios while running Prime95 Small FFT AND Furmark, simultaneously. Which, you will never be doing anyhow so you are perfectly fine with that unit.So basically with this setup i dont need to worry about its down side right? Sorry kinda new to this building a pc.
