Looking for good quality reliable 850 watt PSU in the gold+ or platinum area for an RTX 3080.

What are the good oems these days? Super flower? Seasonic? Something under $170 would be great.

go to newegg, sort by those brands and your price, buy the highest rated one.

I'm using one of these in my build these days. It has no issue with an X570, 3900X, 1080Ti (that pushes 280watts) 8 hard drives, 4 nvme drives, 8x 140mm fans and a dumb number of accessories including some RGB.

Damn good deal for $110. 577 watts is the max peak wattage i've ever used according to my UPS, and that's including a monitor.

Edit: Says $150 right now but it regularly, as in at least once a week, goes on sale for $110, watch https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/?f=flair_name:"PSU"

The one I wanted was the Evga 850 P2 Platinum but its $230, which is pretty nuts. I think that is a super flower unit as well.

Ya thanks. I am not seeing $110 but, I was looking at those. At that price I wouldnt get it because a platinum unit is like the same price. That 750 watt unit is a good deal though, its $110 and has a $20 off code. Damn.

It was $110 a few days ago and also when I bought mine a few months ago. It'll go down again soon.

Ok. Hows the noise levels. I have loved my Evga G2 650 I bought a long time ago(which is superflower) because I value a quiet PSU. Assuming good? No coil whine either?

Thanks for the heads up. This is a question most people probably wouldnt know but, I go for silence and I have to have a power supply that doesnt have an aggressive fan profile and that is not loud spinning up. Is Superflower 80+ Golds or Platinums known for that or is Seasonic a better route? Or Corsair?

A SS Focus/Asus ROG Strix/phanteks revolt pro (all are seasonics) are good PSUs and you typically can find one for a little over 100 on sale.
