Jonnyguru has reviews on both the 750 and 1000 watt models so if you want details you can get them from there
As for eco mode turn it off and leave the fan always on as its so quiet you wont hear it.

If there was a 450W Supernova G3 I would have grabbed that instead. I really like the option of turning the fan on or off. Still undecided if I should run eco mode on or off. I rather have the fan running all the time but I also want the fan to last so I'm wondering what to do. Maybe turn eco mode on in Winter. Turn eco mode off in Spring/Summer?

@shilka is there any reading material available that explains what the difference is between Leadex I and II?

 

You hardly even need a fan in your PSU, so it would be best to have ECO Mode on. It would be much different if your power consumption weren't so extremely low.

True I have two 550W G2's and I can not hear anything from them when the PC's are switched on and running.

These are so quiet that my dog's fart in another room and I can hear it easily but no sound comes from the 550W G2's thumb.gif .

my current specs is going to be 980ti msi lightning z170 hero z 7 6700k, 32gb ram, 960 pro samsung 512 gb, 650W seems to be enough, is there any reason to go for the 850W psu? besides the fact that it can future proof if im ever planning to go for sli 980ti.

cause i have 4 PCs at home, 2 of the pcs using 850W psu superflower gold, and the other 2 is superflower 650w gold and cougar 650w gold. these 2 PCs that use 650w seems to have motherboard broken down, both motherboard spoiled because of voltage, is it related at all having higher PSU is better. im from malaysia so many my electric current for my place isnt as stable, both motherboard z77pro asus and p67 msi was spoiled.

If you have electricity problem, you need to have a UPS (http://searchdatacenter.techtarget.com/definition/uninterruptible-power-supply). A good 650w Gold unit is plenty for what you need.

850 watts is way overkill for any system with a single video card and and even 650 watt is as most systems with one video card dont use more then 350 watts max

Let me guess the system that died is the one with the Cougar PSU in it?
And if you have a Cougar PSU you need to get rid of it as its made by HEC or the kings of crap as i like to call them.

In response to "seems to be enough", I should say that it's much more than enough; it's overkill. The only reason for getting overkill is if you want ECO Mode to keep the fan off at all times. Even then, I really doubt you'll hear the fan at its slowest speeds.

 

If you had two GTX 980 Ti's, the only reason for getting a high-end 850W PSU would be if you were overclocking the cards.

 

I noticed you keep specifying "gold". It seems to me that you may be mentioning it as though its an indication of the PSU's quality. It's not. There's no reliable way to judge the quality of any PSU, really. However, even so, specifying "gold" when you don't know much about the PSU can help those of us who know the PSU models to know which PSU you're talking about. ;)

 

If you have unstable power coming out of your wall outlet, then you need to stabilize it before it reaches the PSU. It doesn't matter what you buy for a PSU, unstable power coming out of the wall outlet will hurt the PSU and thus it will hurt the entire computer.

Why "Gold"? I'm only asking in case you are trying to say that all Gold PSUs are high-end.

There is a lot of crap out there with a gold rating slapped on
So no gold does not mean its good

Just look at the FSP Arum or the rebrands EVGA NEX aka G1 and the Bitfenix Fury
Or the Corsair RM1000 or the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200

All of those are way below average quality yet have a gold rating slapped on.

The 80+ Certification labs don't test the PSU's quality or anything else. They just test its efficiency, and that's not a mark of quality or good ripple suppression or good voltage regulation, etc. It just means that the lab found the PSU to have a certain efficiency and out the door it goes to the retail stores.

Hi,
First of all, sry for not reading the entire thread on my smartphone.
Quick question, someone here using the alchemy 2.0 cable kit from bitfenix?
I got them now for some time but most annoying thing is the 24pin connector got some double cable pins and 1pin is missing. Thats why i dont see anyone with combs on a g2?

I really hate it because i bought the cable kit to improve the look of the cablemanagement, but it isnt as clean as i would like it to have, cas of the double cables on some pins...

Isnt it possible to sleeve both cables in one sleeve? Or why do they even need 2 cables if they end up in one pin again...
Im always looking at it and thinking to sell the whole combo or to replace it somehow...
