XPG Cybercore II 1300 Platinum PSU Review

The XPG Cybercore II 1300 is a high-performance power supply, compatible with the ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.0 standards. 

The XPG Cybercore II 1300 is included in my best ATX v3.0 & PCIe 5.0 PSU picks article.

The XPG Cybercore II 1300 is a high-performance power supply using a high-end semi-digital CWT platform named CTT. With only 160mm depth, this unit is compact for its capacity. Still, it could use a larger 140mm fan instead of a 120mm one for lower noise output. The PSU is not noisy, featuring a Cybenetics A- (25-30 dB[A]) noise rating, which is good given its capacity, but I believe that its average noise output could drop below 30 dBA with a larger fan. The review sample gets a Cybenetics S++ (30-35 dB[A]) since it has a slightly more aggressive fan speed profile.


[Update: XPG informed me that they couldn’t find a larger fan producing the same airflow as the Nidec 120mm one at lower noise output]


The $320 MSRP will probably make you bad, but no (semi) digital PSU comes cheap, especially in this capacity range. Moreover, the PSU uses an expensive Nidec fan, which doesn’t come cheap. The fan will easily outlive the long warranty, but as I mentioned above, I would like to see a larger diameter fan used in this unit. That said, the 60,000 hours at 60℃ life expectancy of the Nidec fan is mind-blowing!

  1. Hi, I was wondering: Why does the transient response chart not include all the power supplies that were subjected to this test? For example, the Dark Power 13 1000W got 11.45V in this test. Is it because it targets 1000W while the listed power supplies target 1300W or above? Or did something change in the testing procedure?

  2. Did XPG tell you when this variant will actually be available? Right now it seems they’re trying to clear stock of the v1 cybercore 1300, and the v2 is vaporware/nowhere to be found.

      1. FYI there appears to be a serious issue with these power supplies. I have now had two of them(RMA’d the first) and neither was able to power my ASUS WS PRO W790 ACE with Xeon 2455x. The board literally will not post with the Cybercore II 1300W, it gets stuck at 00, before cpu initialization! Meanwhile my ancient 11 year old Seasonic X1250 has no problems with this same system.

        ADATA/XPG RMA is also not accessible, it’s literally impossible to submit an RMA, as their form tells you to fill in required values, even when everything is fully filled in. Additionally, I emailed the support mail it says to contact if the form doesn’t work, and it’s been over a week with no reply.

        I bought this power supply on the high recommendation of this review, so it seems appropriate I post this warning here.
