5.0 out of 5 stars Best For Price & Performance., 5 Jun. 2014

This review is from: EVGA SuperNOVA 750W PC Power Supply - Gold (Accessory)
Okey, I should start off by saying that I didn't order from Amazon, well initially I did, but then I realised that this PSU wouldn't arrive until July, so I got it elsewhere, I'm sure that'll change within the next few days or so though.

So where shall I start? . . . After upgrading from a 7870 to a 280x my Be Quiet L8 530 wasn't up to the job anymore so I was in need of a 600 watt+ PSU (BF4 was going to desktop and stuff, but since installing this it hasn't been). I narrowed it down to either this or the Corsair 650 RM . . . . I was looking for a fully modular PSU, above 600 watts and below £100.
I searched on 'Johnyguru' and 'Tech Power Up' for reviews, and the EVGA seemed to have the edge (for me) . . . It's based off Super Flower's Leadex and it is of excellent build quality. The PSU comes nicely packaged, and contains a pouch for any excess cables you may not end up using.
What is also included is a jump accessory. . . Basically with a PSU you can connect a paper clip to a black and green cable of the motherboard lead and it'll fire on without having to be plugged into the machine, this is essentially what this is, but not so ghetto. . . It's great for testing to see if your PSU works before installing, or if you are making a custom loop and need to bleed the system.

Ok onto to the build quality, the paint is nicely textured, and the PSU looks like it means business, I've always liked the way that EVGA brand their PSU's but for various reasons in the passed haven't committed to purchasing one until now. The sleeving is of good quality, with all black cables (and EVGA do a custom sleeve cable pack you can buy too) and the cables in the PSU are easy to bend/route where you need to go and are of good length. One thing I particularly liked is that the SATA harnesses aren't too far away from eachother, like maybe less than 3 inches, which is something I didn't like on some Corsair cables, I have 3 drives all stacked close together, this made it easy to use a single harness.

The actual PSU has an eco mode which'll turn the fan off under idle load, it's very silent, probably on par with the Be Quiet which I replaced, which is good as I was apprehensive about buying a PSU which might be over a certain decibel.
Other things to note, it's 80Plus Gold, Japanese Capacitors and come with a 10 year warranty. Very hard to beat. PSU has only been in for a few hours but I'm more than impressed.

I hope this review has been helpful.

does this PSU come with a UK power cable or US?

The power supply I recieved from amazon included a UK power cable. There was also a sticker on the top of the box saying UK.
