For what it's worth, if JonnyGuru were grading this unit today, it'd only get a 9 on Performance (since voltage regulation is being graded more strictly now), or a 9.2 score overall. Still, it's a solid power supply at a good price, and an impressive unit overall coming from FSP.

With impressive efficiency at 10% load and the fan staying off up to around 300W, this would make an excellent mid-tier silent gaming PSU, and a pretty good regular high-end gaming PSU. This is much better than the G1 series FSP made for EVGA last year.

Good for you. That's not the norm or the policy.

To be fair, I opened a chat with CS and asked if they could price match. She initially offered the gift card. I told her if she would credit my credit card, I would purchase it. And she accepted my offer.

Same here. It's modular and has 2xCPU connectors. I'm a little concerned that 650 might limit my GPU selection down the road with a dual CPU system though...

This is the PS I'm using for my 1p e5-2670.

One thing that really amazes me is the noise level: I can run the computer most of the time without fan ever turning on! The PSU will go "ninja-mode" when under 40% load. and whenever I'm gaming, during full load, the unit's fan is still very quiet.

Lots of reviews on NE about receiving DOA units. And it's not isolated, many report this.

Is there a noticeable difference between this vs the G2 or GS for a gaming rig?

Possibly. Most of AMD's current high-end cards would be out of the running, except the R9 Nano. Nvidia cards up to the GTX 980 would be fine, but the 980 Ti would be pushing it with two Xeons.

That said, both AMD and Nvidia are releasing new cards promising huge efficiency gains due to the shrinking architecture (28nm to 14nm and 16nm for AMD and Nvidia respectively), so you very well may have some nice high-end options from both companies in the next three months.

I might be missing something, but there aren't a whole lot of reviews on Newegg. There are 47 reviews total on the GQ series between capacities, and 4 of those are DOA reports and 2 of them are early failure reports. Technically that's 12%, but it's a very small sample size.

Personally, DOAs don't concern me that much, since there's bound to be a few with any manufacturer, but the reports of the unit dying after a few weeks make me worry about the quality control on these.

In terms of quality, the G2 would be the best of the bunch, as it has better ripple suppression and voltage regulation than both the GS and GQ. The GS series is honestly underwhelming by Seasonic's standards, and the GQ actually looks to be the better unit. The drawback to the GQ is that it's only semi-modular, as opposed to the other models which are fully modular.

As for your question, though, I don't think you'd notice a difference between any of these models, except that (in eco mode) the fan kicks on a bit earlier on the GS than the other two.
