Dang this is one crazy deal its top of the line was like $200 about 3 months ago or so! In for one!
anyone care to explain why according to linus tech tips psu tier list the g3 is under tier 2 and g2 is under tier 1. I thought the G3 is basically an upgraded version of G2. Doesn't make sense.
This looks like a good deal. Cept its like 100 with auto notify now.
My corsair tx850w is still kicking ass and chewing bubble gum like 7-8 years now. The bottom of my case looks like a bed of snakes though. Lol
Will probably look for this deal if it comes around again. The g3 model looks smaller form factor with a 130mm fdb and better pcie connectors over the g2 version.
I have a 10 year old XFX running my server. Bought it with a gtx 580. I'll replace it one day.7/8 years.. yeah time to jump ship before it's too late. Caps weaken with age.. like a ticking time bomb before the blue screens and random shut offs.
Get while the gett'ns good! Heh

It may take something out some day who knows, I think the fear is over done by some people. And the reviews I have seen of solid psu's 10 years later show them stil putting out solid voltage without degradation. To each is own.GL! Live and learn I guess.
I've heard of new psu's with already weakened caps just from being on the shelf for a long time before purchased. Manufacture told him as much when they rma'ed it.
Thank you Captain Obvious My taxes are the same. Or I could drive an hour to tax-free Delaware.
Gas money too. With you all the way there. Was just saying. Helped a friend a few years back get his ridiculously big 4k TV in Delaware. Save a couple hundred. Amazon had a fulfillment center in Maryland so were taxed here. Moot point now since we are taxed on all online purchases since SCTOUS passed that law earlier this year. Expect all other States to follow suit soon.Time is money for me. So I am not going to drive one hour to save 8 bucks lol. Sometimes its just not worth it. if it was 50 bucks in taxes, that would be a different story.
