NZXT C Series 650W Power Supply Review


NZXT doesn’t have a presence among our best power supplies, but this could change soon if they continue releasing good products like the C series model with 550W max power. Now NZXT has a 650W version. Besides an interesting design, the C650 also achieves good performance with the popular Seasonic Focus Plus Gold platform. With the current price tag, $110, it is close to the competing offerings from Seasonic and Corsair (RM650x), delivering equally high-performance levels with the Focus Plus Gold with similar capacity and quiet operation. The Corsair RM650x still leads the race though in this category, along with the XPG Core Reactor 650

According to NZXT, its new C series models with 650W and 750W capacities can handle high-end GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Even the energy-hungry Radeon Vega RX 64 won’t be a problem. Nonetheless, you should take this statement with a grain of salt since some Vega 64/56 implementations have nasty power spikes, which can create problems even for stronger PSUs. This is one of the reasons that NZXT asked Seasonic to increase the 12V OCP and OPP triggering points in the C650 model: to make sure that it will be able to handle high power spikes without shutting down. It is a double-edged sword, though, since, with high OCP and OPP triggering points, you can damage the PSU if you apply much higher than its nominal capacity, loads for prolonged periods, or loads under high temperatures. That’s why we recommend within 130% OCP and OPP triggering points in platforms that can cope with overloads.
