Great reviews, great price, modular effecient and best part of all a great warranty 10 years :D
This seems like the most premium product in my build. Came with a protective storage cloth and a canvas storage bag for the cables. Even the box smelled like quality. *Edit Haha, yes it smelled so good. Plenty of extra power cables, velcro cable ties, and a 24-pin PSU tester were included. It runs so quiet that I wonder if I'll ever hear the fan whirring!
I am quite pleased with the G2's Eco switch though. Go, team EVGA. I can simply switch it while using the PC and all it does is turn off the fan, if the system is not pulling enough power to make the PSU hot. With a maximum power draw of about 350W while gaming, I doubt it ever spins.
To those, who will criticise the PSU as being too powerful: The CPU can pull upwards of 170W, when overclocked, and the 970 has been shown to pull way more power than stated by NVidia. So worst case scenario power draw for this build could well be in the high 500s. I was initially looking for a 600W PSU, but this was the cheapest that met my other criteria, so I went with it. Didn't see a point in spending more just to get less W.
It silence, but beware of it size.
I originally had a Corsair CX750M picked out when I was first building my PC, but I had a lot of folks tell me how unreliable it was as a power supply in general. So I picked something that I knew was reliable, and it only cost slightly higher than what I was willing to spend. Worthwhile investment, and I haven't run into any problems whatsoever.
Amazing, easy to install and manage all cables. well worth the investment
All the juice I can use and a 10 year warranty! Dead quiet and Ecomode keeps the fan off at idle.
This power supply is just flat out sexy, it does its job and its also very quiet,
reliable and powerful!
The only downside to this psu is I wish i had a bigger one due to the expansion of 980ti's.
