Aerocool collaborated with TPU in order to build an ultra-reliable high-performance PSU. The P7-650W Platinum is one of the best power supplies we ever tested, featuring full modularity, high efficiency, and a dead-silent operation even under tough conditions. It is also equipped with Japanese caps and a quality fan.

I dont think 'Not very affordable' should be a negative point. You can say things like 'slightly overpriced compared to competitors offerings' but anything can be 'not very affordable' depending on a persons life style.

170 Euros is £153(GBP) and £153 gets you a Corsair AX760 Which is made by Enermax. So in essence, youre getting less wattage for your money with the Aerocool. Its great that they finally stepped up the quality of their PSUs though.
they matched Corsair with their 7 year warranty on the AX units.

The problem with Corsair PSUs at the moment is they have given 10year warranty to some of their cheaper HX and RM units which are rated at the same 80Plus Platinum standard as the supposedly top tier AX series units which only come with 7years warranty.

by doing that, Corsair have made the AX/AXi line of PSUs redundant because a HX or top tier RM can do the exact same thing with corsair link and monitor their PSU from the desktop.

Hmm have they updated the AX -series. Last AX, that I've seen reviewed was made by Seasonic and AXi by Flextronics. Corsair's usual oem is now'a'days CWT, so I'm pretty skeptical about AX being made by Enermax.

youre not the only one. Ive had 2 failures with AX units within the last 10 months. One of the units replaced was less than 2 months old when it started going f**ky. CWT might be a better choice now, but at the same time they make the CX***M units which Ive also had to replace multiple times for a client.

It all comes down to components, not brands or OEM manufacturer, imho. For example, i have a Toughpower for many years (the old PSH platform, build by CWT) and it works flawesly. I have seen many toughpowers of the same platform (CWT PSH) live more than 8-9 years. But that doesn't mean that each and every psu platform by the same manufacturer is as good. Ofcourse some manufacturers -like Superflower for example- produce only quality products, but i think that is an exception and not the rule.

Regarding the Aerocool PSU in the review, it's pleasant to see them stepping up their game in a category they were lacking in my opinion.

Not very affordable.... yeah OK maybe where you live they're not but you have to remember not every country sells thing for the same price, Platinum PSU's cost a fortune here in NZ versus Silver or Gold 80+ PSU's going from silver to gold can cost you upto $150 more and from gold to platinum $200 more

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
actually it's quite cheap ... at 150$ i gladly take the 750W (but the price will never be 150$ ... thanks taxes .... pfahaha)

my Seasonic M12II 750 Evo Bronze cost 120$ .... talk about expensive being 5$ less than a 650W but which is Platinum and has a RGB controller or many other features that my own does not have ....
well even with the 650W P7 i would have enough juice and only have to pay 5$ more (again .... sweet dreams ... that one will be 150$ for the 650 and round 190 for the 750 :p )
