⚡PSU Tier List⚡ (108, revision r1.42)

The PSU Tier List features the best computer Power Supply Units based on a range of factual information.

All credit goes to the contributors who create and maintain the list on the Linus Tech Tips Forum, huge thanks to @LienusLateTips, @seon123@Stefan Payne and @LukeSavenije without you guys this list wouldn’t be possible.

This site was created out of frustration of not being able to quickly see a complete list of prices for the PSU’s in the list.

Where available we have provided up to date pricing information from Amazon for each Power Supply, ordered by Tier.
