SilverStone ET750-HG: An 80 Plus Gold, Semi-Modular 750 Watt PSU For About $100 USD

Since SilverStone sent over this review sample, for the past month I have been using this for all of my Zen+ testing with the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X processor, including for all of the launch-day tests. Over the past month of keeping this system under near constant load thanks to the automation of the benchmarks via the Phoronix Test Suite, I have run into no problems at all. This 750 Watt power supply was powering the Ryzen 5 2600X was with the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 for a majority of the time.

Unfortunately the Linux sensors support via the LM_Sensors effort is still lagging behind for newer motherboards. As a result, unfortunately the voltages aren't recordable when running Linux on this AMD X470 motherboard. As a result, no nice graphs of the voltage over time for spotting any fluctuation. But during the tests I did spot check the voltages occasionally with a multi-meter and they appeared to be stable and on point.

Long story short, I am quite happy with the SilverStone ET750-HG. The power supply's 140mm fan is very quiet, it's been playing just fine the past month with a Radeon RX Vega 56 and AMD Ryzen 5 2600X under near constant load from automated tests via the Phoronix Test Suite, and I haven't run into any problems to speak of on the power side.

If you are looking for an 80 PLUS Gold certified power supply that is semi-modular and offers a single +12V rail, the Essential Gold Series with the ET750-HG fits the bill quite well while costing just about $100 USD from major Internet retailers like NewEgg. Should I run into any problems down the road with this SilverStone Essential Gold PSU, I'll certainly update, though it may be a while as I even have some older SilverStone ATX power supplies that are about a decade old in some of the legacy test systems that are still running fine.
