Why you can trust Tom's Hardware
The GF3 1350W takes the lead from all other similar spec PSUs that I used for comparison purposes.
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).
The average noise output is high, even under normal operating temperatures.
The following graph shows the PSU's average efficiency throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius.
The GF3 1350 uses an efficient platform, which can meet Platinum platinum platforms, eye-to-eye.
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 does a great job!
