NEVER BUY THAT WALMART GENERIC SHIT there is EVGA SUPERNOVOA 850 G2 its GOLD RATED much better power supply then those two power supplies you tested.. Shipping is going to be a bitch for people that live in HAWAII and ALASKA SO forget the tower go with a notebook like this one http://www.xoticpc.com/xotic-g72-apache.html the only thing wrong is the CPU is limited 2.2GHz it will turbo boost 4 GHz I do not know the CPU is only a one core turbo boost like the i7 8086K or the CPU in the notebook got more core to turbo boost with or all core turbo boost. The screen is 1080p 144Hz GTX 1070 8gigs GDDR 5 all kinds of storage options. and they will not give you a crap power supply. its got windows 10 home 64bit pre-installed.

I would never buy a power supply from a reseller like Corsair, OCZ or anything like that. I buy my Power Supplys only from a Manufacturer that made Power Supplys for years, have the needed experience with it and with extremely strict multiple quality controls during the Manufacturing process. So the one and absolut only for me and my PC is: "be Quiet!". I do not risk a damage due to defective power supplies or a faulty or even missing surge protection!

Funny how not having a painted enclosure and no sleeves on the cables completely changes peoples' perception of a product. If it was powder coated and sleeved I bet there would be no issue regarding safety.

That is quite interesting, didn't expect that. Now my next question would be, are there even still really terrible PSUs available for purchase via more or less reputable marketplaces like amazon that do blow up under expected loads? Or is it a case of parts becoming cheap enough for manufacturers to build low-price PSUs that aren't terrible in general.

After my FSP 650W Bronze PSU blew up on me (luckily all my PC components survived), I am very careful about what PSU to choose, and I spent some time reading reviews until I decided to go with EVGA G3 750W Gold. Almost 3 years now and I'm very happy with it so far.

You guys want to laugh at Great Wall? They are one of the best PSU manufacturers in the world! They mainly do OEM. They produce many legendary PSUs such as the Corsair SF600! Shame you don’t know that! The money companies pay them determines the quality. From the worst to the best. That is Great Wall, headquartered in Shenzhen just like Corsair China and many other big brands.

Walmart PC is not bad at all (now that they lowered the price), you can move components to better case and that should do it. And as far as PSU, looks like it can hold just fine. Mobo and Video cards are Gigabyte, memory is ok...just don't tell me your HP is better. Not defending Walmart, but I think reviewers were too harsh.

Take a deep breath, slow down, explain the curves without just reading numbers as fast as you can, and maybe people can go through the whole vid without a headache, and understanding something. You guys did some good work on the tests, its a shame to present them so badly because all your work goes to waste.

I really enjoyed the power supply testing and would like to see more reviews, especially of cheaper supplies. Power supplies don't get many in depth reviews these days and are something people tend to overpay hugely for out of unnecessary fear, IMO. It might also be good to have a guide for people to estimate their power needs and read the PSU label to figure out what they're actually getting, as they can be misleading. And I will say that even when most PSUs fail these days - which is fairly rare when you have stable household current, aren't subjecting it to crazy heat and aren't stressing any of the rails - they have pretty good protection (OVP, UVP, OCP, OTP, SCP, fusing). The better monitoring circuits have become cheap enough that these are usually integrated on any PSU over like... $16. I only finally got a cheap 485W HEC from 2009 to fail spectacularly while doing some heavy overclocking for fun - and that's the only failure I've personally seen - and all of the PC's Phenom II era components were fine afterward.

Have you considered opening the PSU to examine the filtering stages and the components used in the PSU? I ask as long term where the components (capacitors, rectifiers, etc.) are made (Japanese caps. for example) are important to know. Hardware Secrets has some great examples (http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/why-99-percent-of-power-supply-reviews-are-wrong/ & http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/hardware-secrets-power-supply-test-methodology) Looking at the filtering stage sections of their reviews gives a good idea (http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/silverstone-strider-plus-600-w-st60f-ps-power-supply-review/3/) although they don't do PSU reviews anymore.

Bibasik7 Having an exterior exhaust/intake grill on the PSU is standard since the fits PC. For decades, the PSU fan was actually an 80mm mounted right there, only when they switched to 150mm PSU fans for noise reduction was the fan moved to the bottom of the PSU. Of you can stick a screwdriver through an open hole and touch a live mains connection, it means the PSU is classified is only IP20, same as most of the power sockets in a house.

the walmart pc is getting a lot of bad press but so far the complaints are all really minor, it seems like the hardware is all fine and it will perform according to its specs. Is it just the price that is pissing everyone off?? No walmart is my country and the price seems around what we would pay for those components so I don't really understand the problem. If you want a Ferrari you dont go to a Ssangyong dealership right? From what I understand Walmart is not a high end boutique retail outlet right?

It's a bunch of entitled people thinking they should get a Ferrari for the price of a base Honda when their mama gave them the money in the first place. The margins even with large quantities of buying of the parts used by Walmart are still razor thin. Honestly, the majority of enthusiasts probably have similar specs or outdated parts in general. Anyone can say what system they have online, but I highly doubt all these people are running around with RTX 2080s or SLI 1080 TI's with the latest CPUs and motherboards. It's like how a lot of car guys are, Online they have a Lamborghini in real life they have a bicycle Or they go to a meetup and all of a sudden their stock four-cylinder Honda has the same specs as a Twin turbo 5.7 L V-8. Hell, half the reason people complained was that they can't lie about what they actually got for the price. Everyone wants to say they got stupid amounts of hardware for stupid amounts of money but in reality get it dirt cheap; It helps with "image".

One thing to remembered: If you're getting a direct off name product like this it could be a notorious "third shift" product. Which means lower quality production, and a lot less quality control. That's assuming whoever is making Wal*Mart's "Over Powered" PC's isn't further cutting corners by buying from the reject bin.

So they build Corsair PSUs. I owned (2) Corsair ax760i power supplies BOTH suffered cooling fan failure in under 1 year & I owned a builder series Corsair 430w power suply, which died in a little over 1 year of light use too. I'd like to see you stress test that Great Wall power supply 8 hours a day for one month !! I strongly suspect you'd hear the loud POP of a capacitor as it blows.

The way factories work is they produce goods of varying quality, some well within specs (or exceeding specs) and some outside of specs. It could well be that Great Wall sells the power supplies that exceed specs to the 'reputable, high quality' PC system makers while the stuff out of spec is sold to Walmart?

In 2010, a PSU named tengoong(천궁) blew up at 50% load in korea... It was a great issue and people tested other cheap PSUs... In that test, extremly cheap Greatwall OEM psu exploded at 50% load too... Normally people think Greatwall PSU is trash due to that test result, but in fact, the problem was korean sellers order... They requested PSU manufacturers to make extremly cheap PSUs... (Including tengoong and Greatwall OEM and other explosives) And the result was the explosion of ''cheap'' PSUs... I mean... Greatwall's ''expensive'' PSUs are Solid.

So basically, this PSU is perfectly fine for an unmodified DTW1 or DTW3 Overpowered PC. The manufacturer went with a cheap but functional option for an off-the-shelf pre-built system. Color me shocked. It's pretty lame that you keep referring to it as "Walmart could do ____", when they are simply the distributor. It takes all of 2 seconds to find out that Overpowered PCs are made by Esports Arena, a California-based company. You're literally just promoting these as "Walmart" products to capitalize on negative attitudes toward the retailer. Lame.

People spewing stupid comments like that about it "blowing up" are all 12 year olds that think it's automatically a bad PSU because it's not black and it's not name brand. Aesthetics are irrelevant dumbass kids. Just because it look like it came out of the 90's doesn't mean it did. Sure you deserve more than what you get for what you're paying but the PSU isn't going to burn the system down obviously, contrary to a bunch of idiot misinformed children's comments. What a surprise.

One key thing missing here - internals. A big cause of failure in PSUs relates to build quality, and capacitor quality alone is often a factor. Even good caps *can* fail, but the likelihood is much, much higher with low quality parts inside. This is a big part of why JonnyGuru took off - he goes further than just measuring, similar to mobo reviewers who really dig into the VRM design instead of just running benchmarks.
