850+ PSU - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
So I either need a 850-1000w psu or 2x 750 if anyone can make suggestions ?

The Thermaltake 750 gold I bought was junk (one literally shot fire out of it)

I said it was a standard (yes.. of efficiency)... I never said it had anything to do with quality....although a more "Efficient" power supply would also be (implied) higher quality.

True.... the same can be said for cars, TV's, and people, etc!

Your NEX1500 have really bad voltage regulation and so does the NEX650G/750G the NEX750B is a downgraded FSP Raider thats bumped in price

EVGA NEX1500

HardOCP failed it: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/12/11/evga_supernova_nex1500_classified_power_supply_review/9#.UxYoiYUQdOI

Guru of 3d calls it a Ferrari among power supplies : http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/evga_nex15500_classified_psu_supernova_review,9.html

JohnnyGuru gave it an 8.4 of 10 : http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story7&reid=311

So no... it is not perfect... but it is not that bad either! Etasis build good power supplies... and yes, some better than others.

Now why don't we stop trashing up this thread with inanities... and get back to helping the OP?

So many things wrong here

this ^ Rosewil capstone and Fractal Design Tesla R2 are pretty much the best units you can get in your price range and 1000w is plenty for your rig i wouldn't go any higher then that smile.gif

and i have to agree corsair not only over prices there units but they also have loud or faulty units alot of the time i hear alot of people complain about coil whine or faulty fans in there units so i would recommend corsair too anyone

You mean you wont recommend Corsair to anyone right?

I agree on that not because Corsair units are bad but you can get better for the same money or less

Aren't Ferarri's known for... oh what was it again... oh yeah, burning to the ground?
I suggest you read a few of the articles in my sig that Shilka has written, he knows his stuff better then anyone else I know, especially when it comes to quality.


As for a suggestion for OP, since alot of bickering has been going on, here.

http://us.ncix.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&sku=92969&vpn=SS-850KM3&manufacture=Seasonic%20Electronics

I just bought one of these and I can't recommend it enough. Silent, fully modular, cables are nice to work with and a good length, and its a really good quality.

http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=PS-RSA00US&c=CJ
This isn't the best quality, but if you ever want to overclock, it will work.

I wasn't questioning knowledge or ability... I was responding to his less than tactful manners....

I did find this in the Links you pointed out... written by Shilka? (thanks for the links.. they look useful!)

The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified unit retails for $449.99

Delivered 1650 W at 47°C ambient, flawlessly
Great ripple suppression
Good voltage regulation at +12V
Tons of connectors mounted on extra-long cables
10 year warranty
Software control/monitor
Ability to adjust the voltage of the +12V rail
Can select the fan profile through software
Fully modular
Excellent build quality
Individual sleeved cables


Ultra high price
Not ErP Lot 6 compliant
Loose voltage regulation on the minor rails
5VSB failed at full load test (during normal operation, not in standby mode)
Terrible efficiency at 5VSB
Noisy fan
Low accuracy of the provided software

9.3The new EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified surely packs numerous features which, to a degree, justifies a stiff price. For starters, it is the strongest desktop PSU available on the market and it manages to deliver good voltage regulation on the +12V rail, whose voltage is fully adjustable, registers very high efficiency throughout most load levels, is equipped with a ton of connectors, uses high quality components, and has top-notch build quality. It, moreover, comes with a ten year long warranty, the longest I've ever seen in a desktop power supply. The features of this unit also include the SuperNOVA software through which the user can monitor and control the unit. However, the accuracy of all readings provided by the software is questionable. This is something that will hopefully be fixed in a new revision of the SuperNOVA program, although I believe that the hardware plays a key role in these measurements, something that cannot be changed so easily. Finishing with the advantages of the unit, I really love the fully modular design and its high quality, individually sleeved, modular cables that will please even the most demanding modders.
Let's take a look at the negatives I found, all of which don't spoil the overall positive impression of this PSU. First off, this entire unit is not ErP Lot 6 compliant, something that has a tremendous effect on the efficiency of the 5VSB rail. This is a problem that EVGA should solve immediately, since this directive was made for a reason and it is a shame to waste so much energy with the PSU in standby mode. The low voltage at 5VSB during the full load and overload test is, according to EVGA, a problem of the sample I had in my hands and not a general one. However, I cannot confirm this statement by EVGA until I test a second EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified. The good thing is that the 5VSB rail registered normal voltage readings in standby mode. The fan also emitted an annoying high-pitch sound at low RPMs, something I surely wasn't expecting from a Sanyo Denki fan.

The new NEX1500 is made for you if you own a suitable mainboard (e.g. an EVGA Classified SR-X) and three to four ultra high-end VGAs. This PSU is the strongest of its kind on the market today and comes with enough power to support not only four, but eight VGAs (for future mainboards). It surely has a high price-tag but is still priced lower than a high-end graphics card, and you will keep the PSU for much much longer.


So apparently not all bad? http://www.overclock.net/t/1395708/evga-power-supplies-information-thread

And basing an opinion on a single unit? Really need to test several and average the results...

lets not derail the thread the op doesn't need a 1500w psu for 3 video cards that would be way overkill and besides that unit is way overpriced and way over the ops budget smile.gif
