Thread Starter 
The GS series are Seasonic yes and the GQ are FSP made but the 650/750 does not use the same platform as the 850/1000 watt does
The 650/750 watt GQ are in fact much worse then the 850/1000

Same story with the GS 550/650 they use a worse platform then the GS 850/1050 does
Both the of the GQ 650/750 and the GS 550/650 are somewhat mediocre

As for which is which here you go

Yeah I see that in reviews now. If the price is right why not though but often the RM550x is cheaper than the G2 and I would take it over Seasonic and FSP PSU today.

Indeed , the load is between 500 and 800 watts which is 60 % of the full load of a 1200 watts psu .

60% of load is a good value because you will get the better efficiency of your PSU .

On the over hand , do you know if the supernova p2 1200 is a silent PSU for my system or not at all ?

Perhaps , i should consider the Seasonic snow silent edition 1050 W instead ?

 

In order to maximize your efficiency, you want your average power consumption to land at 40-60% of the PSU's advertised capacity, not your maximum power consumption. How many hours per day does your maximum power consumption occur? If it's just a few short hours every day, then you'd maximize your efficiency by having the maximum power consumption land at about 85-90% of the PSU's advertised capacity. I'm serious. This way, your average efficiency is absolutely maximized.

 

However, today's high-end PSUs have a very consistent efficiency throughout their entire output capacity range. So, you don't have to worry about this anymore, especially when you are considering buying something as high-end as a PSU from the G2/P2/T2 series (Super Flower Leadex).

 

Now of course, if you want to guarantee that the PSU will be dead silent, then yes you will want the power consumption to be lower. However, I just wanted to explain the whole "50% load" thing. Here are two old articles that are still relevant to today in terms of how this needs to be understood:

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/711542/on-efficiency

http://www.overclock.net/t/872013/50-load-myth

 

In a nutshell, you want the average power consumption to land at the PSU's sweet spot. I spoke to Phaedrus2129 directly about this and he taught me that for a typical gaming rig (where the maximum power consumption only happens for a few hours each day), you'd want that maximum power consumption to land at about 85-90% of the PSU's output capacity in order to maximize the overall average efficiency.

 

Of course, again, when it comes to making sure the PSU's fan is always quiet, you definitely don't want to be giving your PSU any reason to speed up its fan.

With 1200 P2 he will run fanless all day long wink.gif
But wouldn't with 850 G2 when taxing load to max.

Yes.

This is the main raison why i have choosen the 1200 P2.

More chance to run fanless at mid load .

You wouldn't hear the fan anyway, but hey, whatever brings you peace of mind I guess. :)

I have the 1300 watts G2 and do not hear the fan at all. ECO mode is also a nice to have considering my CPU and Video Cards are overclocked like mad.

The 1300W G2 isn't supposed to have ECO Mode.

The 1600WG2 is loud as sin, recently downsized to the 1200P2 and ecomode is a god send coupled with a quiet loop.
