Hello, here in the Philippines, pricing of computer parts are ridiculously high. I'm currently shopping for a PSU to replace my garbage one since i'm planning an upgrade (R5 2600/3000mhz kits/new MOBO)

What I wanted to ask really is that how can I tell if the PSU from corsair is gray label or green(which from what i understand isn't good)?

Am i supposed to see some indication that it is a Gray label or are there any signs that i should be looking at that is not specified? If you guys can post a link with a picture of what it should look like i would greatly appreciate it.

the general consensus is that green labels are bad.
however, that was more so in the past and since 2017 it has gotten better.

I personally have a green label 600w and have been using it to overclock my 6700K and my 1080 Ti without any issues for a couple years now. And I bought it second hand so it had some usage before me.

But then again, I could've just gotten lucky and got a good one.

Best to stick to the anything other than green label and making sure it's 80+ Bronze or better (a non colored white/silver 80+ is no good. Don't get one of those, they are built very cheaply)

NO....

The green labels are old stock/old models that have been sitting around forever.

All the new ones are Grey/white.
