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 NEX750GEVGA 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 seenNote 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.
