DeepCool Intros Quanta DQ650 EVO Power Supply

DeepCool rolled out the Quanta DQ650 EVO, a new 650W, mid-range power supply. Offering 80 Plus Gold efficiency, this unit features semi-modular cabling, and is ideal for a single, high-end graphics card based gaming PC build, or one with two performance-segment cards. Its fixed cabling includes a 24-pin ATX, and 4+4 pin EPS. Modular cables include four 6+2 pin PCIe, eight SATA, and four Molex connectors. Under the hood, the unit features a single +12V rail design. It is ventilated by a 140 mm fan. Most common protection mechanisms are part of the package. CWT appears to be its OEM. The company didn't mention pricing or availability.

Excellent non-modular/modular cable split.

CWT is likely to be the OEM totally looks similar to the Thermaltake SmartSE series (or any CWT based unit)

but at last it's a gold cert.

Its bigger brothers (DQ 750 for example) are made by CWT and gold certified as well. I have the 750w model and my only gripe so far is that it came only with 5 modular cables, in spite of having 6 connectors!
Edit: I forgot to add that the rough texture on the chassis collects dust and is very hard to clean, not a major flaw, but still ugly for a windowed case.

CWT CSG
80+ Gold efficiency cheaper than the CWT PUQ (G)
ahh so it's the CSG while the Smart SE is a DSAII

thanks for the info :D i also noticed that my Smart SE 630 was a dust magnet but luckily i didn't had a windowed case at the time :) (well even now ... a AIR540 has a window but the PSU is hidden :D )

Not DSAII
Tt Smart SE is CWT GPM 230V only bronze (SP-***M)
and the 230V only "gold" Smart SE is CWT GPN (SPS-***M)

CWT DSAII in the Tt Smart without SE series. 115V 80+Bronze

I suggest people always check the actual test results for the exact PSU model from JonnyGuru or Hardware Secrets before buying a PSU as these two sites properly test the PSUs and open them up to determine if the design is proper and the components top quality. Other reviews are often a joke from untrained professionals and they can be very misleading. Some badge engineering marketeers buy price point PSUs from a number of suppliers so one model might be good and another in the same brand/family could be junk. That's why it's important to read a review for the specific model you are interested in from the above listed sources.

well i always mixup Smart and Smart SE ... altho Smart SE doesn't have the 80+ bronze cert (but they are rated 87% by Tt) they meet the requirement but bypass the cert for price reduction.

tho i can't remember where i saw the Tt Smart SE 630 was a DSAII (on a review or here ... dunno)
