Why you can trust Tom's Hardware
The overall performance is not competitive, staying behind most products in the same price range. Compared to the P750GM, the UD750GM scores a little better.
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 relatively high. Given the not-so-high-quality filtering caps on the secondary side, we wouldn't suggest a more relaxed fan speed profile, 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 achieves a high average efficiency score.
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 need tuning for higher performance with 230V input.

I'm curious if you did the GamersNexus tests. A lot of PC builders are going to wait for their tests before considering a Gigabyte PSU due to the exploding PSU issue they hadReply
