    Since it's quite difficult to determine at a glance which power supplies are the most efficient (especially on shopping websites), I've decided to create a list of all power supplies that are 80 Plus Gold certified (I'll add Platinum when those PSUs are released too).

    According to the 80Plus.org website, an 80 Plus Gold power supply has the following efficiency characteristics:

    230V: 88% at 20% load, 92% at 50% load, 88% at 100% load
    115V: 87% at 20% load, 90% at 50% load, 87% at 100% load

    An efficient power supply is often a good choice, since it wastes less energy as heat, keeping your computer cooler and your electricity bills down.

    The following PSUs are 80 Plus Gold certified:
    • Antec High Current Pro 1200W
    • BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P9 Series - 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W
    • Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold Series - 600W, 700W, 800W, 1000W, 1200W
    • Corsair AX Series - 750W, 850W, 1200W
    • Enermax Pro87+ Series - 500W, 600W (not modular)
    • Enermax Modu87+ Series - 500W, 600W, 700W, 800W, 900W
    • NZXT Hale90 Series - 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W, 1000W
    • Seasonic X-Series - 400W, 460W, 560W, 650W, 750W

    I will be updating this list as I go along. Please post in this thread if there's an 80 Plus Gold consumer power supply I've missed off.

    I hope you guys find this thread useful! :thumb:

    Several reasons really, it's difficult to navigate through, it lists a lot of server/OEM PSU manufacturers which are irrelevant for general consumers, and since many PSUs are rebadged, it's often difficult to match up the model names and numbers.
