what do you think is the effinciancy of my PSU after 6yrs pretty much 24/7 running but i dont play alot of games so its not maxed out in powerr drawl alot of the time. it dont go into sleep mode or anything though any ideas.
according to there website new it wouldf have an over 80% efficiency rating. so prolly 80% but what bout after 6years
If it's powering your pc just fine, it still works. However power supplies do indeed lose their performance over time, and costing you more money in the process as they drain more power from the grid. That 80% efficiency thingy stops working after a couple of years.
Personally I replace my power supply every time I upgrade, which is every 4-5 years usually.
