https://www.jonnyguru.com/ Can't seem to find that one, but most of the recent EVGA PSU reviews are mehhh. I honestly run anything and haven't had many problems, but for a server I would stick with Seasonic, power supplies are what they do. I'm rocking a SS-760XP2 in my server and its been rock solid. On the other hand, I've got a 400W Rosewill running in on my kids computers (FX6300 + 1050) and it also works fine, and before that it was hooked up to a JANK media server I ran in Afghanistan that was literally nailed to the wall while deployed.

It's expected that there are no in depth reviews on these PSU's yet, as the b5 is evga's new line that just came out this 2020 year.

They promise higher end bronze efficiency and all Japanese capacitors on the higher wattage models. Sadly, 650W and below models only guarantee that the main capacitors are Japanese.

Edit: Newegg has it for $5 less but with a $10 rebate hassle involved, which isn't really worth it. Amazon also has that 20% Amex points offer going on right now.

Well, you forgot to mention that newegg charges 6$ shipping fee and it totaled 66 after rebate. So newegg's deal ended up as a worse one, not to mention that if you could eventually receive that EverRebate in the end! LMAO
