EVGA SuperNOVA 850W G2 Power Supply Overview

Untitled Document

Introduction

Today, we’re taking a look at EVGA’s SuperNOVA 850W G2 power supply. Featuring an 80 PLUS Gold certification, the 850W G2 is designed to deliver clean and continuous power to each component inside your gaming computer.

Like all Gold rated power supplies, the EVGA 850W G2 provides improved efficiency over longer periods with lower power consumption resulting in reduced energy costs and heat output.  The power supply is backed by EVGA’s 10-year warranty and is built using only the best components like Japanese capacitors.

General

Unlike other power supplies the EVGA 850W G2 uses a quiet dual-ball bearing fan for silent operation and reliability. Coupled with the ECO Intelligent Thermal Control system, the power supply can run virtually silent with fan-less operation at low power use.

When ECO mode is turned on, the 140mm power supply fan does not start to spin until the internal components reach a specific temperature. Depending on the temps, the fan will spin either at 750rpm or up to 1500rpm.

As far as specifications go, the SuperNOVA G2 is capable of delivering clean and continuous power without a hitch. Both the 750w and 850w operate on a single +12V rail with the 850 G2 delivering up to 70.8A (amps) on the +12v rail. The SuperNOVA G2 lineup also include universal AC lines and an active PFC making the units more power friendly.

To 850W G2 uses a single high-power +12V rail and features an all-modular design. This makes it very easy to keep the wiring in your system nice and clean.

The new SuperNOVA G2 lineup from EVGA is a great step-up from their previous power supplies. They offer great performance and reliability without breaking the bank. By partnering with Superflower, EVGA can now go head-to-head with some of the largest PSU manufacturers.

Conclusion

With great voltage regulation and low AC ripple, the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 is definitely a power supply you should consider. With it’s all modular design and great efficiency due to the 80 Plus Gold rating, the 850 G2 will be right at home in most SLI or CrossFire setups. In addition, the included ECO mode helps keep your system quiet by reducing the fan speeds depending on your use. Not to mention, the 10-year warranty is something that a lot of you might like.

Overall, the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 850W is an excellent power supply and we would have no problem recommending it for your next gaming computer.
