Yes, the name Sparkle does remind me of a fly-by-night PSU company, that brings up images of sparking power supplies.

Before you start disrespecting your fellow OC'ers read the writeups on this failed PSU company.

and J.P. 27, the NEXT time you private mesage me, and call me an idiot because you did'nt like my post, we will have words.
what do you mean we will have words? you are an idiot and that's an understatement

you are judging a psu based on the fact that the name reminds you of a simpsons episode, LOL, i mean seriously, L O L

i'm not going to waste too much time on you, since i have more important things to worry about, but just to get you started:

JONNY GURU

Summary

I'll be honest... I was expecting to end this review shaking my head in discouragement. Instead, I'm shaking it in disbelief. No, this unit isn't the best power supply of its size in the universe, but there is a lot more going for it than I thought I would ever find. There are some issues to be dealt with yet due mostly to build quality issues, but quite frankly this unit has a real shot at taking the whole power supply community by storm. Look out, competitors - Sparkle just got on the track and is already breathing down your necks. As a man named Goldblum once said, "must go faster, must go faster!"

The Good:

affordable
incredible ripple suppression
laughs at heat
80 Plus Gold efficiency
lots of connectors
The Bad:

some missing fan control functions
The Mediocre:

high frequency hiss/squeal at high loads

None that I can think of


Summary: The Sparkle Gold Class 1000W PSU is a great candidate for anyone needing a powerful and flexible PSU for their computer.

FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE BY SIN0822

So i got this PSU about a month ago for my new GTX 570 in SLI. I gotta say I love this PSU. So many peripheral cables, four 8 pin/6pin pci-e cables. Also i was on my wattage pull meter and I pulled 980watts from the socket with GTX 570 OCed and 5.1ghz 2600K on a UD7. I ran furmark for SLI extremburn test, with IBT running on the CPU. I also disabled the OCP protection built into the GPU drivers so that furmark could run. it said each of my OCed GTX 570s(2) was pulling 85amps! that was GPU-Z tho.

Anyways I saw 980watts a few times and I was impressed! just letting people know if they want to buy a VERY nice 1000watt monster. it actually very appealing PSU and got an excellent review from jonnyguru vs the corsair AX, the 1250watt model tied or beat the AX, idk about the 1k.

OEM is greatwall, and the PSU runs very cool. it says the fan spins after shutdown but that is not true tho. the 5v wires are purple too hahaha.

It also comes with a $100 giftcard you mail in and get 3 DX11 games, i thought it was weird you give games away with a PSU, but you gotta have some monster GPUs to need this PSU.

Anyways thansk for listening!

You are welcome, I was "listening". I enjoyed having you get spun up, defending a bargain basement PSU.
Good Day Sir.

Newbie, I am happy you did your homework, I will give you a +1 rep for changing my mind, and helping remind me that I should not judge a book by it's cover, or by it's bad reviews.

I accept the apology, and I hope we can strive for better discussions in the future.

I'm seriously amazed.

You tried to call out a PSU because you have never heard of the brand (even though they're quite well known), and then you call that person a newbie because they provided sufficient evidence indicating that the product you are ignorant about is indeed an awesome deal not only because of its price but also because of its performance?

Fail.

Lol. I think we need to get back on topic. So since SIN0822 reached 980 watts, I'm wondering if the hiss mentioned in Jonny Guru's review was present. Seems like a decent deal if you need a high-powered unit.

Bargain basement? Sparkle is part of the FSP-group (Sparkle,Fortron) and is the 5th largest power supply maker in the world. Sparkle is pretty big in the server world. I don't know about your area, but Fortron is a well recognized name by consumers where I live. If you're under the belief that Sparkle is a fly by night company, I'm guessing you're not involved in the technology business?

This.

My first machine (Pentium 1), had a Sparkle PSU in it, way back in the day. Sparkle is not a "fly by night" company by any means. I'd definitely buy this PSU if I needed 1000w.

cant believe people are doing the "not expensive enough" line here. i dont know much about this company but it is reputable and has been independently tested which means something. also around 90% efficient isnt easy to do.
