High Power Power Supply

I have an i7 7700k and gtx 1080. My psu is a High Power 600 watt 80+ bronze psu. Anyone know if this brand is ok for now? Ill be looking to change it out but am not looking forward to the hassle. Also heres a chart, the model is HPG-600st-f12s. Can someone explain what these numbers in the chart mean? 20% 50% 100% https://plugloadsolutions.com/80PlusPowerSuppliesDetail.aspx?id=42&type=2

    High Power isn't bad, pretty mediocre.

    The 20/50/100 is an efficiency table for 80+. It just shows you what the efficiency is at those load %. And that's all. Being a Bronze rated unit, it's just more efficient than most of the other HP units, which run at 80+ instead of 80+Bronze. You'd need to move upto a HP 850w to get 80+Gold rating.

    might be of interest. As of the numbers I'm assuming that's efficiency at % load.
    Usually it's given as a curve like so: http://cwsmgmt.corsair.com/media/choosing_PSU/450W-efficiency.jpg
    but in this case looks like a chart format.

  3. Do I have time for now to research power supplies? This brand isn't so bad that its going to burn up my components pretty soon I hope? Some people have linked it to Sirta/ Sirtec

  4. I would not use it with such costly components.
    As for numbers on the chart, those are efficiency on given load. So you got 83.60% efficiency at 20% load, 85.47% efficiency at 50% load, and 82.38% efficiency at full load. Those numbers does not matter much unless you are really worried about your electricity bills.

  5. I saw your other thread, as for the brand, i have never heard of it. There may be some reviews if you google the brand. if it is on the psu tier list on the forum that might give you an idea. the most important thing for a power supply is the current it can supply, since it has an 80+ rating that is nice - it means they got it tested to meet standard requirements. the label on the side for a 600w supply should read the current for a single 12v rail to be around 50A, as low as 40 and I wouldn't worry too much for within the warranty period, for two rails if its any lower than ~23 and is less then 45A between the two its not looking too great.

    I would upgrade to something better since you are using really expensive components with a below average psu.

  8. 80 Plus 80%80%80%
    80 Plus Bronze 82%85%82%
    80 Plus Silver 85%88%85%
    80 Plus Gold 87%90%87%
    80 Plus Platinum 90%92%89%
    80 Plus Titanium 90%92%94%90%

    All units are certified (not standardized as 80+ is a voluntary certification, not an actual standard) at 20%, 50%, 100% loads except for Titanium which is also certified under 10% loads as well.

    HighPower is Sirfa/Sirtec brand, a rather large OEM and solidly mediocre, neither great nor trash worthy.
