    It's a Seasonic Focus GX 750W Power Supply, Full Modular, 80 Plus Gold.
    I've had it about a year with no problems. It's my third Seasonic PSU. The one in my previous PC failed after 4 years, but they shipped me a warranty replacement really quickly and with no fuss.

    Re: QOTW: Which power supply is in your main PC?

    My Ryzen 3 desktop (2200G) uses a PicoPSU. The PicoPSU is feed from a 20v/90W charger from an old laptop - which is voltage-downstepped to 12v ==> PicoPSU.

    Uses 18 watt idle, 1.2 watt sleep - and up to 80 watt when playing games:WOT/GTA V - all measured at the plug / the wall.

    PicoPSU=10 Euro. Voltage stepdown=5 Euro. Old 20V block/brick/charger was scrap anyhow.

    The PC is totally silent !!

    EVGA 1000w Supernova G2.
    Had it for ages and used in three builds, works awesome, does stuff, love it.

    A bit more than I thought I'd ever need, but latest gen GPU power req's s suggest it might have been a fantastic investment after all!

    An 80Plus Gold 650W EVGA, forgotten what model it is. It just works and keeps quiet about it, just as it should.

    Re: QOTW: Which power supply is in your main PC?

    Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 850W. Had it about a year to replace a 10 year old Corsair. No problems to report on the new PSU. Worth paying that little bit extra (though it was bought in a sale) for PSU with a 12 year warranty and a top notch reputation. Buy once, buy right.
    Live long and prosper.

    Re: QOTW: Which power supply is in your main PC?

    Well aside for a chieftec PSU blowing up on me,,,,, dunno why i was so nice to it, even chrome plated it along with the rest of the then steel chassis , well i never had PSU problems.
    My last two have been corsair and i am currently on the RM850 i
    Before these i did a few of the German Be quit power supplies, i still have one of them in a old emergency PC.

    I have been on board with modular PSU's since day #1, actually a regular PSU i did mod their wires so at least to wire length and plug placement,,,,,, and color, they was tailor made.
    Needless to say when SATA came around i ditched those IDE drives like they was hot, cuz those cables, while i modded those too, well no good :-)

    Aerocool Project 7 650w Platinum which was developed in collaboration with Techpowerup. Never thought I would recommend let alone buy a Aerocool psu but this unit is up with the best. It's fully modular and it's cables include a pair of EPS leads and four single pci-e leads (no daisy chained connectors here). The 140mm fan is off until it hits 60% load and even then only runs at 500rpm until 80% load. I got it while it was on offer at CCL last year for just £82.

    Re: QOTW: Which power supply is in your main PC?

    one that i got from my spares drawer after my enermax naxn 350w went bang and possibly took my 750ti with it. Or the other way around, not quite sure which, i was getting food.
    so that'll be the 4th enermax PSU in last few years to pop.
    enermax naxn 350w, also a 450 and a 500 pro 82+ from 2009 ish. cant remember sisters one.

    pros for my bluestorm II 400w. it still works after being in a drawer for 4 years.
    cons. i need a new one anda new GPU.

    I wanted a Superflower / Seasonic this time around but non in stock, i waited like 4 weeks and in the end gave up and went a Corsair 850w. The old EVGA G2 were really good still have one in another pc

    Mine's an EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3.

    I've had no problems thus far, and I don't anticipate any either - I have registered it for the full 12 year warranty though, so I should be covered if any do crop up.
