Romulus clearly stated in a post 2 years back that corsair HX or RX series psu 650w and below in BD were bait and switching, not matching international product quality reviews.


    But I admit internationally psu universe changed a bit, there are some new brands with great psu, and some older brands are falling out of love/tier.
    The efficiency rating only matters a whole lot if you keep your PC on 24/7. Then there's this another thing where you need to atleast 50% load on the PSU so that it gives you the best performance. That is why buying a really beefy PSU is somewhat a downside if you aren't using 50% of it's capacity.

    This is the prime reason why 650w-750w units are going to be better than your 1k+ units, unless you have a WC loop and loads of drives or a crazy overclock on the extreme series setups.

    I don't see the reason behind the disdain garnered by the TT PSU TBH. As some of you may know, I am with PC Builder Bangladesh now, and we have seen three Corsair AX1200i PSUs fail, in the same manner. Even Linus on one of his recent videos said he's keeping the same Corsair 1200W PSU for a machine he's upgrading, that he got replaced just 6 months ago. That is a Platinum certified PSU, and is probably in Tier 1 of this Tier list you people so often refer to. So who is to blame for these Platinum 1200W PSUs failing?

    did you ever state in this forum and others than corsair and many other branded psu in Bangladesh has bait and switch problem, specially psu with lower wattage like corsair rx tx series under 650 watt or something

    actually i dont know about right now. probably nobody selling refurbished?



    class A and b c d, technically those aren't for refurbishing product... but hey, those 'kinda' can be for bait and switch product.
    for example- if an SSD said it had TLCnand then it got bait and switch with a bad or slower nand, which cant fast transfer files over 40gb in size, it is bait and switch, and it is related to product classes right? it happens even in first wold... and for 3rd world it will happen again.


    classes not gonna go way ever. there are many reason for that. and some rare cases classes can mean something other than quality of product i think.


    but then again, 'technically' those were not supposed to be for bait and switch.

    well... corsair vs series wasnt supposed to be too bad, gs was bad...
    point is- i hereby declare all psu worldwide under 450w-500w has terrible quality assurance and just made with bad components, specially cheap transformers and diodes and 中中. sometimes even same series has lot better psu at 600+watt








    about senseis post... welp BG was always a site for talking about hardware and bd market rather than actual games and such. particularly after facebook groups like dhaka gamersclub or gamerzonebangladesh and ...i forgot... gaming world... there are like 4 or 5...

    From the video he posted, it sounded like one of those ''trawlers'' we have in our rivers lol. He resolved the sound issue though, said the PSU fan was banging against a cable (like how? :/ ), blaming the guy at the shop who built the pc. Although no idea if he got rid of the burning smell

    Very bold statement which is utterly WRONG!

    There are 450-500w units worldwide which uses excellent quality components and offers superior performance when compared to their higher tier cousins whilst remaining in a competitive price range. Take Seasonic for example.

    Another example. Back in 2008-2009, circa 2010 there were Delta 400w units which were much much better than some of the 550w and 600w units sold here in BD. During that time, if you needed a good PSU, the only affordable and good option was the Thermaltake ToughPower series. I used the 600w myself which I bought 3rd hand, and it served me for more than 5years and then I sold it off before buying my Corsair HX650 v2 which is infact purely a Seasonic 600w unit inside. The Thermaltake unit is still going strong with the 4th owner.

    Point is, when you are buying a PSU you need to research about its OEM, build, quality of the components rather than just seeing the label. As I said before, a good 500w will be much better than a crappy 600 or 700w.

I've also known a few other people who had VS450, nobody had any complaints about it. Who knows, maybe newer units have shitty components or he just got unlucky.


    And as for thermaltake, some people had better luck with more expensive units but I've seen cheaper ones consistently fail. The litepower I had on my first build didn't fail outright, but it had less than ideal voltage in 12V rail and wouldn't post if the pc was turned off for an extended amount of time.

    I don't even understand why ppl would put a wager on litepower and smart units. They sucked 中

    In Bangladesh, the power of the shopkeepers/salesmen compels 90% of the customers. It is a mighty influential power indeed. Works 10/10 in politics as well

    litepower my butts.... vanguard said even gigabyte crappy superb series and fortrex/non brand psus are better than some lp. he also said tr2 series is bad... i should have listened. :'(

    he and romulus said some higher wattage smart series psu are really good.
    that is actually why I made that declaration,dip anzan. Anyway I do declare I was kinda wrong, I now declare this- Most below 450w-500w PSUs are made out of bad components, surprisingly even when the PSU brand/series/OEM is great, for lower wattage psu they save money. However for higher wattage PSU on that same series you may find great components. It's probable that lower wattage psu in a great series is lot worse than a higher wattage 600w psu in a bad series/brand.
