LC-Power LC6650GP3 V2.3 - GREEN POWER

Hi everybody,
does someone have any reviews on LC-Power LC6650GP3 V2.3 - GREEN POWER?
It's 80plus Bronze (http://www.80plus.org/manu/psu/psu_reports/LC-POWER_LC6650GP3%20V2.3%20GREEN%20POWER%20EDITION_ECOS%201781_600W_Report.pdf), and it costs much less then any other Bronze PSU, but I've not been able to find any review about it.
Thanks in advance
Antonio

  1. Based on specs, I'd say "junk". I can't read the label, but it is not rated for more that 38 amps at 12 volts. A good 650 watt PSU should be able to put out around 50 amps.

    Based on the 12 volt output, I'd consider this more of a 500 or 550 watt PSU. And as such, it is too expensive.

    Thanks very much for your suggestion. I've looked at some alternative 600-650W PSU (Cooler Master and Enermax) and they indeed have 48-50 amps on the 12 volt output.

    its a huntkey 650 that tends to explode at 540 watts and go out of spec at 450 watts

    could you provide us with a link where you buying from

    Whow! How come has it received 80plus Bronze certificate?
    The link is http://www.prokoo.com/product_info.php?cPath=3_34&products_id=2160.
    Bye
  5. the 80% plus certificate if tested at 25c but most pc's wil run into 40c or more

    so if its heated to 40c it cant put out its rated wattage

    and some companies to advertise fake 80% certification
  6. http://www.prokoo.com/product_info.php?cPath=3_34&products_id=1168

    only cheapish power supply i can recommend from that site
  7. Thanks for your advice, the Corsair CMPSU-650TXEU 650W you suggest me is less cheap but it'surely much more reliable!
    Bye

    There is also the possibility that LCPower/the OEM sent Ecova a cherry picked unit or a one-off which has no relation to the units you can buy in retail.

    According to the specs on that page the max combined on the 12V rails is 550W/45.8. How do you know that it is a great PSU for the money? Have you used one in a power hungry system? Have you or do you know someone who has hooked it up to a load tester?

    The company that sells it might be German but it is built by a Chinese company.

    Because for 50 euros you don't have better 650w psu.I was a little skeptical about this psu , because I have never heard for LC Power :) My 8 friends have that psu and they are very satisfied with this lc power. One of them have i5- 2500k oc at 4.5 i think, asus 6950 also oc, 2xcaviar black 2tb , kingstone ssd 120gb , and he play battlefield 3 8/7 ,min :D last 6 months. So far I have not heard anyone complain about this cpu . I am using it on q6600 oc to 3.8ghz , ga-x48tdq6, asus 3870x2top , 2xwd catiar blue 500gb in raid ... 24/7 last three months ...so not that they are not hungry machines :)

    Yes , but I was a little confused with the labels mismatch about amps specs, on my psu is like on lc power web, so i think this is just mistake .


    >>REVIEW for older model<<
  11. I contated lc- power and they said that it is older model , newer model is upgraded :) Good to know !

    See specifications before buying!!
  12. Got an LC Power myself. I wouldn't run high profile GPUs with it and definitely no SLI/CrossFire setup. As long as you don't stress it to much it's quite reliable, cheap and pretty quiet.

    Anyway, there are better PSUs available for slightly more and if you can get one of these, don't bother with LC Power.
  13. Hey guys! I was thinking about buying this PSU.
    My system is not power hungry, but I will probably update it in future, and would like to keep the PSU.

    Here are my specs:

    Intel Core i3 2125
    Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
    Corsair 2x4GB @ 1600MHz
    Samsung 830 - 64GB
    LC Power Pro 970B Vendetta_X
    Sony Optiarc DVD RW

    No GPU (using the HD 3000)

    Here is what I intend to upgrade later:
    i3 2125 TO i5 3570K (or TO i7 3770K, but chances are low for i7)
    Add 8 more GB of RAM
    Add 1-2 HDD (WD Caviar Blue, Green or Black)
    Add a GPU (GTX 660Ti (if I get the money) or some radeon within 7750-7870 series).


    OK, ONE MORE THING!

    IS 600W PSU which is in LC Power Pro 925B ENOUGH FOR MY CURRENT SETUP?

    MY CURRENT SETUP:
    Intel Core i3 2125
    Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
    Corsair 2x4GB @ 1600MHz
    Samsung 830 - 64GB
    Sony Optiarc DVD RW

    Gonna add HDD pretty soon...
