RAIDMAX Vortex RX-800AE-V 800W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Non-Modular Power Supply
RAIDMAX Vortex RX-800AE-V 800W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Non-Modular Power Supply

Pros: the actual power efficiency is 89.7% with heavy loads between 730watt-765watt which where i tested it. At all times the PSU ran Silent but never reached anything above 28.8C and the unit has a very solid build. I have the 800watt model but I'm sure they're other models are just as good. Been using this in my OC rig for 24/7 stress testing an trying to push it to break for 3months non-stop but it will not stop, An if it last with me & all I put it under then no one will ever have issues.

Cons: Only one single thing keeps this from being the best in its class, its not Fully Modular.

Overall Review: As long as the extra cords doesn't bother you, an it shouldn't since they all can be hidden so well in modern cases these days, then this is a perfect PSU with the best Price to Quality there is. Any ATX or microATX built after February 2020 needs this PSU in it.

The Best Possible

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-R55XTOC-8GD
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-R55XTOC-8GD

Pros: 1st I have had this for afew months now an have over clocked it to the extreme. Gpu clock 100% stable at 2125MHz and Memory clock 100% stable at 1985MHz Max Temps with fans locked at 60% speed never exceed 35C with room temp 21C This card clears 3Dmark TimeSpy with score of 7145 with only a 16% powerlimit increase I game on MSI 27" 4KUHD curved Monitor at 165Hz and this card holds Shadow of the Tomb Raider at ultra settings at minimal 149-152 FPS always

Cons: Getting the setting to work an or hold adjustment is very difficult the Profiles do not hold settings as set and have top be re-loaded after each restart of your pc to ensure actual settings set. Even with Driver updates an BIOS updates, If you get this card you have to set a Fan Curve setting because the card will stay at zero fan til its nearly melting then it runs the FAN speeds way too Hard

Overall Review: I have this Paired with a AMD Ryzen 3600 locked at 4.9 GHz all cores and 32gb CL13 (13-13-13-28) 1.6v DDR4 4200MHz Ram set( 4 x 8GB ) and all on a ASUS ROG Strix B450F-Gaming MicroATX MOBO and a 2TB Gen3 NVME 2280 M.2 SSD. Wish i had a X model CPU but I think I got it pretty good with a non-X 3600 at 4.9GHz plus all 100% with no temp ever over 41C for the entire system so ya its good. But if you want a stable solid good GPU that will game as hard as you are willing to push it then this Gigibyte RX5500XT 8GB GPU is perfect. For what this is it is the best it can be. This card does not preform well in a non-AMD optimized System.
