Why you can trust Tom's Hardware
Overall performance is high.
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).
With a larger PCB and fan, this platform could have a lower overall noise output.
The following graph shows the PSU's average efficiency throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius.
The 1000 G7 is highly efficient and this is why is rated as Platinum in the Cybenetics scale.
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.

Another great review.Reply
Are there cost reductions in making a physically smaller power supply ?
I hope we get to see a review of the Chieftronic Powerplay. It's putting up some interesting numbers.
