Summary: As mentioned above, this power supply is very tough. after a shipping incidence succeeded in destroying over half the components in a build, including the case which suffered severe frame damage, the only noticeable effect on the power supply was a slightly louder fan noise.
Pros: Nice efficiency Nice and affordable when on sale Indestructible (see other thoughts) Quiet Modular plugins are nicely positioned on front plenty of power for single graphics card set -up
Cons: It preforms all jobs one needs it to do. So none
Summary: Thank you EVGA for treating your customers right! It makes this small business owner to want to buy EVGA whenever I can!
Pros: Running smooth and quiet with no issues. Very nice construction (feels like it is good enough to exist on its own outside of a computer case), both structurally solid and visually appealing. Although I did RMA my first power supply because of a noisy fan, the process was probably the best I have ...
Cons: Not much of a con, but having to RMA because of a noisy fan was technically a con. However, not a single egg subtracted for this because EVGA sent an advance replacement (which arrived very fast if I recall) with a prepaid return shipping envelope! Yes! Some companies still know how to do business!
Summary: Works perfectly in my build and has a great price! It powers my over clocked i5 4670k and 780ti without any problems. The full modularity helps a TON because of all the cables that I already have in the case, and I don't need any more cluttering it up. The handle is actually helpful, surprisingly.
Summary: I really like the way this power supply came packaged. All of the cables I needed came with it to build my new computer. Seems to be very well made and when recording my motherboard voltages it is very, very stable.
Summary: Hopefully this issue will get resolved between me and EVGA, if I can edit this review later I'll definitely correct it if they help me out.
Pros: Powers on my computer.
Cons: This unit does power on my computer, however in a certainly alarming way. I have already been through one RMA with this unit (So I've tried two units now) and both of them have the same issue. Both units have made a crackling/arcing/buzzing sounds that I can hear over all of my 140mm fans. It's n...
Summary: What an amazing Power Supply at an amazing price. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I am glad I chose this one. The Fully Modular design makes cable routing/management so easy. All of the supplied cables are of the highest quality.
Summary: Very elegant power supply sporting a sultry black case and accompanied by a silver handle. Comes with a bag for any cables you don't use. It's a power supply, you need one, this one is solid for most home builds. Very rugged, well wrapped data cables, makes cable management a breeze. Quiet.
Summary: I like extra stuff. Posters, Stickers, ect. The box this came in is really good for storing cables and other small parts. It even has a handle for mobile uses. The straps that are used to organizes the cables in the box are great for organizing in my pc case and for other things outside my pc case...
Pros: Runs great so far, looks and feels good in my case, really quiet. Love the red cables.
Summary: Red VGA power cables stand out. Not good, not bad, but worth noting if you've got a case with a window and you're building for aesthetics.
Pros: This is my first modular power supply and I am impressed. I grew up with ten to twenty molex power cables stuck to a brick and this was so clean it almost brought a tear to my eye. Note: don't cry while assembling a computer. The cables themselves were thick and sturdy.
Cons: Cables were so thick that they took some finagling. They aren't as flexible but they sure aren't going to fall apart.
