Conclusions

The XFX PRO 650 W XXX Edition is a good option for users looking for a power supply with the 80 Plus Bronze certification and modular cabling system. During our tests, efficiency was between 81.7% and 85.2%, noise and ripple levels were extremely low, and voltage regulation was satisfactory, even though it could be a little better on the +3.3 V and +5VSB lines at higher loads.

The PRO 650 W XXX Edition comes with a suggested price of USD 115, and we know that vendors usually offer power supplies below the suggested price. The non-modular model, the Core Edition, can be found today for USD 100 at Newegg.com, which is a terrific price tag. Our guess is that the XXX Edition will be offered around USD 5 or USD 10 above the Core Edition, so it will be up to you whether you want to pay a little more to get the modular cabling system.

By the way, internally, the XXX Edition and the Core Edition are not identical; we found small differences between the two, which we pointed out during our analysis of the primary of the reviewed power supply.
