Down from $330. Has been out of stock quite a bit recently and hard to pick up at a good price.
Retail is more like $250. None the less good deal
dont forget yoiu have to factor in shipping, umart is easily attainable for me, so worked well.
Does platinum justify the premium over gold?
I dont think so, from what im seeing it has like 1% better efficiency at 50% load. Cant see the $60 premium over other 750w gold psu's.
this one is sff, that's why there is a premium
what does that provide?
@Freestyle: it is a lot smaller than an atx psu, and in most itx case, having an atx psu will choke your system air flow
@ln28909: oohh form factor gotcha
guessing for Mid Towers no need to look for such psus
looking for a price drop for 850Ws lol, all too expensive now
@Freestyle: Yeah definitely wouldn't pay the premium if you have a mid tower or larger, and yeah psu price hurts my soul when I have to buy it now and compare with historical price on ozbargain
@ln28909: thankfully 650W running my 3080 decently enough, no crashes so far so def not paying these prices
I'd say yes, but not for efficiency reasons. I chose a corsair platinum SF600. I did that for a few reasons:
1. It has a better fan curve - with Zero RPM until a higher level. Fan kick in levels based on fan curves on box:
SF600 Gold - ~100W
SF600 Plat - 240W
SF750 Plat - 300W
Also - For Corsair vs others, I think the Corsair SF models use a 92mm fan vs 80mm in some other brand SFX PSU. Seasonic looked nice, but was too expensive, and not available widely.
I also saw relatively few complaints of coil whine on Corsair PSU.
However if you don't care too much about noise, I'm sure there are plenty of cheaper options, like Silverstone.
I am assuming this is all related to SFX too.. If you dont need SFX you wouldnt be in this comments section.
The Plat PSU's also come with braided cables.
Premium version has braided cables which are a lot easier to manage in smaller cases
Platinum comes with nicer braided cables.
I refuse to buy from a retailer that so blatantly inflates their rrps.
Yeah they are shit but this is objectively a good deal right now
Anyone know of any good power supplys around the $100 mark or should I just buy a nice one. I've had a psu last over 10 years and I have a feeling it might cark it sometime soon.
its SFX, you are paying premium, because of the small form factor, and 750 is only required for 3080+ which i may intend to do.
I like seasonic - bought a good modular PSU 650 watt and most importantly, comes with a 5 year warranty.
High chance of a crap $100 PSU with 1 year warranty breaking on you 3 years down the line so you're likely saving yourself money there.
damn what a nice price. it is THE PSU for itx builds. heaps of power for dual loop cooling is enough.
Damn shipping cost. May as well buy it locally in Victoria to save any warranty shipping hassles.
The curse of wanting a SFX PSU for a NAS and rack mounted server, not enough SATA ports :( lol
Waiting for a deal on the SF600 gold :((
mine, that i replaced with the 750W
Damn, it is sold out.
Happy with Gigabyte P650B; for $85, can't fault it.
It's a small form factor psu for mini itx builds - hence the price
Didn't the Platinum series of SFX PSU have issue?
Some of them did, they were recalled
