Before i begin i want to say no i have not reviewed this unit nor is this a review and all credit goes to Techpowerup as i got the info from them

Alright i thought the EVGA thread cleared it up as to why you should not buy an NEX650G/750G, but a lot did not seemed to get the word or understood why so i am going to make a whole thread as to why not
First off lest start with OEM and the platform used its FSP and its based on a group regulated Aurum, the word group regulated should already tell you whats wrong with it

And before anyone misunderstand no the SuperNova G2/P2 and all the other SuperNova models have NOTHING in common with the NEX650G/NEX750G those are based on other platforms not FSP Aurum based units, so this thread is ONLY about the NEX650G/NEX750G

Quoted from Techpowerup´s review of the NEX750G
EVGA trusted FSP with their smaller SuperNova units, and they, to be more specific, utilized their Aurum platform. Definitely not the platform we would use for a PSU that belongs to a high-end series and one that has to compete with pretty advanced opponents






The main problem here is not crappy capacitors or super crappy build quality its as said before its group regulated
What that mean you might ask?

It means that all the rails are treated as one big group and not regulated independent
The result of that is some truly crappy voltage regulation in fact some of the WORST i have ever seen

Note that all ripple and voltage results are from the unit(s) at full load







This alone here should be the reason why you should not buy it but it gets worse then that
When you are thinking of a group regulated you are thinking well that would make it pretty cheap right? the Rosewill Capstone is in the same price range and sometimes cheaper and is an overall better unit

Again for anyone that are going to misunderstand no the NEX models are not going to blow up nor are they super crappy like some of the stuff from HEC, the word here is very mediocre nothing more

All info and pictures came from techpowerup and the testing has been done by them so all credit goes to them not me.

Its their own fault for selling a unit like that at such a high price

You know if they took 50$ off the price it would not be so bad its still not very good but at least its not a ripoff

And no the EVGA SuperNova G2 models are nothing like the NEX models they are fact the total reverse damm good models for a great price

Its only the NEX models you should avoid

To be fair the NEX models where the first PSU´s EVGA sold

And there is a story behind why they went with FSP and not Seasonic as they planed

Anyway for a first try it could have gone a lot worse then it did but it could have been alot better

Reason for this thread is i still see the NEX models gets recommended and i got tired of saying the same things over and over

Looks like the Corsair CX has competition tongue.gif . I hope people realize that units built like this are meant for casual FB, YT, or E-Mail rigs. They are not meant to be used by enthusiasts or gamers. Thanks for the heads-up shilka. I'm almost tempted to start collecting information you put out like this and group it up for you.

NEX models are mediocre and overpriced they are not dangerous or will blow up like some of the crap from HEC or even worse Golden Tiger

* Waits for EVGA Jacob to scold you.

EVGA Supernova G is worse than Corsair CS because they have the same exact name as the higher end G2 units except for one number , unless the retailer does their due diligence to write NEX.

I'm surprised it has a 10 year warranty tbh
