Aresgame AGS750 Power Supply Review: Less Efficient Than We'd Hoped

A power supply that doesn't deserve a Gold efficiency badge.

The Aresgame AGS750's performance is poor and its build quality is mediocre. To make matters worse, its fan is noisy when trying to prevent high temperatures. High output noise means increased fan speeds, though, so the sleeve bearing fan could be the first to fail. Even at lower speeds, it would be a feat for a sleeve-bearing fan to last the ten-year warranty period.

The AGS750 is supposed to have Gold efficiency, but in our tests, we discovered that it could not even compete with several Bronze-rated PSUs. It uses an outdated platform that has no place in today's market, at this price point at least. If you need something worthy of your hard-earned money, take a look at the Corsair CX750M, the Thermaltake Smart BM2 750, or the similar capacity XPG Pylon.

    It’s list price or cost may be $80 but I bought this unit at half that price on sale before word was out the efficiency wasn’t up to snuff. My guess is heavy discounting was built into design cuts.
