We evaluate the XTR-650 of XFX’s fully modular XTR series in today's review. This PSU is Haswell compatible and comes with Gold-certified efficiency, and its hybrid fan operation has it operate quietly. Using quality components, it also promises to perform incredibly well while being very reliable.

Nice PSU but if I had to buy a gold 650W modular today it would be the Capstone 650M for $10 less based on the SF Golden Green.

Wait, what are those Enesol polymers? Korean? Are they fine?

Of course even CrapXon polymers are "ok" but I would prefer 100% Japanese, even on polymers.

The score is a bit too low in my opinion, but it gets highly recommended?

I would hope it does get highly recommended wth a score of 8.7 out of 10?, If I got 87% on an exam I would be pretty happy :) I would guess that if it was scored in the 9+ it may get something like an "editors choice" or a "must have".

I've seen some units' reviews which gets 8.7 but not the recommendation so I'm just curious.
Not that I'm serious about anything.

I have just looked through the reviews, it would appear that 8.5+ gets a recommendation, nothing below that and dependant on where it sits in the 9's depends on if it gets an "Editors choice" etc, they seem consistent, it may be that other sites adopt different approaches but they all use differing methology so as long as each site is consistent things should work.

great review, but 8,7 looks kinda low for nice psu ( minus only on noise and switch placement)
