Power Supply Units are rated trough many metrics like components, stability, efficiency, and safety etc. Based on these metrics, A PSU is rated as Standard, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Titanium.

This is called the color coding for PSU’s. Here is a chart which makes understanding color-coding easy.



But besides these, people also choose based on the tier list. There are tiers from 1 – 7 best to worst respectively. PSU’s with best overall performance com in tier 1 and so on.

Tier list is based on main factors, which are


Stability:

If a PSU is stable, it won’t shut down or lower its capacity under stable temperature.

Safety:

A good PSU will have good safety mechanisms like OVP and UVP etc. All your PC components are kept safe.

Efficiency:

Efficient PSU means less electric consumption and fewer e-bills.


Components:

Good quality will always give you more time and best product for the bucks you have spent.

So, based on these 4 things we have 7 tiers of PSU’s. Starting with Tier 1 which also is the list of best

TIer 5- Rank 5: dé / next there is no reason to buy these psu
Corsair
VS450 (2014+ gold label)
 ✅Using the Tier 1 list on the first page, I tried to find a Platinum PSU (for lower energy bills) for up to £100.

Turns out there is only one option:

Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum, 550 W, fanless under heavy load, 10Y warranty, £97
There are two more if I stretched to £110:

Super Flower Leadex Platinum, 550 W, unsure if fanless under heavy load, 5Y warranty, £103
EVGA SuperNOVA P2, 650W, fanless under heavy load, 10Y warranty, £107
Anyone got any thoughts on these three PSUs?



For reference, these are the next five (which I can't afford):

Aerocool Project 7 P650, 650 W, fanless under heavy load, 7Y warranty, £112
Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum, 650 W, fanless under heavy load, 10Y warranty, £113
be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 11, 550 W, not fanless under heavy load, Platinum, 5Y warranty, £115
Super Flower Leadex Platinum, 650 W, unsure if fanless under heavy load, 5Y warranty, £120
Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum, 750 W, fanless under heavy load, 10Y warranty, £125
