I see a lot of power supplies that offer either a 80 Plus or a 80 Bronze certification. Both are rated at over 80% efficiency, most say they provide up to 85/87%.

I know Silver and GOld are higher quality, but is there a diff between 80 plus and 80 bronze?

More about : bronze certified

Nowadays there are three models that meet the 80 PLUS Platinum certification:
- FSP FSP450-60PTM (450W)
- Delta DPS-350W-115V (350W)
- SuperFlower SF-550P14PE (550W)
