Deepcool PL800D: The most affordable ATX v3.1 PSU!

The Deepcool PL800D is a highly affordable ATX v3.1 compatible PSU, with native cables to keep the cost as low as possible. It uses an outdated platform by Helly Technology, which manages to deliver up to 200% loads for short periods! This platform opens the way for affordable new-gen PSUs. 

The Deepcool PL800D will be included in my best ATX v3.x & PCIe 5.x PSU picks article.

I have evaluated so far the following Deepcool PSUs:

Deepcool is the first to offer highly affordable ATX v3.1 PSUs through its PL-D series. This is the first time I see an outdated platform using a double-forward topology that can deliver up to 200% of its maximum power for short periods while keeping its rails within the specified limits. The PL-D line consists of four members, with capacities ranging from 550W to 800W. In this review, I will evaluate the strongest member of the line, and in future reviews, I will look at the rest of the line’s models. I am curious to check on the performance of an older platform under the newest transient response requirements.
