Why you can trust Tom's Hardware
The overall performance is high enough, given that this unit should have a notable difference from the RM550x; else, it would create internal competition. The be quiet! Pure Power 11 FM and the Super Flower Leadex III Gold lead the category.
The graph below depicts the cooling fan's average noise over the PSU's operating range, with an ambient temperature between 30 to 32 degrees Celsius (86 to 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
Under normal operating temperatures, the average noise output is low. The Corsair RM550x has no competition here, though.
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 more efficient than the one used in the RM550x, achieving third place in this chart.
Power Factor Rating
The following graphs show the PSU's average power factor reading throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius and 115V/230V voltage input.
The APFC converter has decent performance, but there is room for improvement with 230V input.
