Gigabyte UD750GM Power Supply Review

Decent, efficient, and with a reasonable price tag.

The Gigabyte is a decent and reliable PSU. Given the bad history of the P750GM, we pushed it a lot, more than usual, to check if there were any problems, but the PSU did OK, surviving all of our tests. The MEIC platform that it uses offers high efficiency, and it has great soldering quality. Still, we would like better filtering caps on the secondary side and a higher quality fan, which doesn't use a hydrodynamic bearing, as Gigabyte states, but a rifle bearing. The compact dimensions and the correctly set protection features are two more assets of this product.

The competition is tough in the mid to high-capacity PSU categories, so Gigabyte has to do better to stand out from the crowd. The UD750GM is not a bad product, far from it, but the competition is intense, and it doesn't offer something notable besides a reasonable price (which at the time of the review was $80). If you can get a Corsair RM750x or an EVGA 750 G6 for $10 to $20 more, it's worth spending the extra money. If the price difference is higher, you should consider the UD750GM.

    I will shortly be in the market for a new PSU and as part of a complete new generation ‘PC Build’ this coming December. Due to the extreme system importance of a PSU selection I never at first look at the pricing or its reasonable cost compared to other brands. But surely a 10-year unblemished warranty has usually driven me to EVGA and SEASONIC products. I am also now prone in looking at PSU’s with over 1200W as the new 4000 series GPU’s and other hardware coming on stream will become so much more demanding and power hungry. Enthusiasts I believe will also now be keeping their primary “Builds” much longer (5-years or more?) as hardware cost are spiraling out of control. So 10-year warranties and RMA services area big deal for me among many other expected PSU offerings like direct software control, digital readouts on the PSU itself, high quality cabling and product finishes.

    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 had
