OC3D Review: BFG EX-1200 (1200W) Modular PSU

"BFG sure know a thing or two about making graphics cards, but how does their latest 1200w power supply cope under the strain of the OC3D load tester."

Hmm bit of an average psu

An 8 for presentation though? Yes the packaging and bundle is quite good but isn't the paint part of the presentation?

Box packaging looks exceptionally bland.

Could come wrapped in brown paper for me.

All i would be bothered about is the performance, which from the review it comes out admirably.

Its rare ive seen cases with the power supply on view when windows are fitted.

It could look like Amy winehouse for i care.. long as it performs. ( Hmm perhaps a bad comparison there but im sure you get my drift )

Know what you mean about the paint, My Antec 1000w Quattro is sprayed and just looking at it, it threatens to scratch the paintwork. Would only possibly affect the resale value in the long run though.

I think that 92mv is not as bad as it seems, to be honest if it is the highest seen on here that says only high quality PSU's have been tested there are dozens of PSU out there with higher ripple.

I agree though for a premium product which has Jonny Guru's input at BFG it's not too good, I would certainly not spend my money on one there are many better PSU out there.

As usual though great review.
