Pros: Fully modular, quiet, no vibration, 6 PCI-E cables, 2 8-pin CPU cables, almost zero ripple and spikes according to JonnyGuru, 80+ Gold

Cons: The PCI-E cables are red, where the rest of the cables are black

I initially chose this power supply off of JonnyGuru's review (9.4). See: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=346

(Page 4) "Folks, when the worst rail is the 3.3V, and is only pushing 25mV, you know you have an exceptional unit indeed. Both the 12V and 5V rails are under 20mV, which is - no doot aboot it - excellent.

It just does not get much better than this."

Though I honestly prefer individually-sheathed cables over their heat-shrinked bundles, they routed well

The CPU cable length allowed me to route the CPU cable behind the mobo, which my previous ThermalTake modular didn't

The cables bend without me feeling like they're going to pull out of the connectors

Quiet with zero vibration, no strange smells

There was a recall on pre-October units - you can enter your S/N here: http://www.evga.com/articles/00803/

My voltage fluctuation I was reading on my mobo with my previous two Thermaltake PSUs is gone

The unit is ~1.9" wider than your traditional PSU, which looks neat

The paint is a glossy rugged finish

Comes with SIX PCI-E cables. The best part is that four of them are only 6+2, not 2x6+2

SATA cables come in both 2 and 3 port variants - great for when you have to run SATA power to your water cooling pump and don't want extra cables around

Pros: Very long CPU cables, styling, modular cables

Cons: Sickly red VGA cables

Until recently I had an XFX 750 Pro Black Edition PSU but I decided that when I added another GTX 690 I needed a bit more headroom so my choice was the EVGA Supernova 1000 G2.
Since I use the HAF X case the deciding factor was the length of the CPU cables which are no less than 750mm long making it possible to reach the top of the case, I have been unable to do this with any other PSU unless I used an extension or stretched the cable dangerously tight. As with most high end PSU's the packaging is somewhat excessive - I would rather have it in a basic brown box but cheaper! Build quality is extremely strong and, joy of joys, they haven't obscured the top with a giant multi-coloured sticker. It simply has a dark grey power chart on the side. There are a LOT of cables and they are better arranged so I was able to use the Molex cable in such a way as to dispense with an entire cable I had previously used.
The sole "con" is the the GPU cables, which are in a sickly red colour which reminds me of a Chad Valley plastic projector I had as a child. The majority of my build is red so it wasn't the end of the world but if your build is another colour you may have to resleeve them.
All in all though I can thoroughly recommend this PSU, especially to those users of very large towers.20140217_141155_Tanner Row.jpg
