Why you can trust Tom's Hardware
The overall performance is pretty high, reaching close to the XPG Core Reactor and Super Flower Leadex III models with similar capacity.
The graph below depicts the cooling fan's average noise over the PSU's operating range, with an ambient temperature between 30 and 32 degrees Celsius (86 to 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
With close to 27 dBA average output, this is a silent operating PSU.
The following graph shows the PSU's average efficiency throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius.
The platform is highly efficient, achieving Platinum in the Cybenetic's scale.
Power Factor Rating
The following graph shows the PSU's average power factor reading throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius.
The APFC converter needs tuning to deliver higher PF readings.

Nice @Aris_Mp! I have a question though. Are the 550 W, 650 W, and the 750 W the same platform as this or are they different?Reply
Thanks! The V750 uses the same platform. Have to check for the other two.Reply
Oh, great then! Please do check because the lower wattages are already sold here in my country.Aris_Mp said:Thanks! The V750 uses the same platform. Have to check for the other two.
The fan noise is actually rattling and annoying.Reply
