Lee has reviewed more than a few EVGA SuperNOVA PSUs over the years and they tend to win the Gold as they are very well made.  The new G3 models are a bit smaller in volume than the previous G2 PSUs at 85mm high, 150mm wide and 150mm long, previously they tended to be 165mm long.  The new size will also mean the Hydraulic Dynamic Bearing fan size is reduced to 130mm, it will continue to support the EVGA ECO mode for those who desire quiet operation.  There is a seven year warranty on the 550W and 650W models, the higher powered are covered for a full decade.  We don't have a review up so keep an eye out for that, in the mean time have some PR.

Who cares? Wow EVGA is stupid. Instead of fixing the 1xxx fiasco ASAP, they act like nothing happened and "introduce new PSUs" to us. Believe me, out of all people out there, PC enthusiast community does NOT forget and does NOT forgive such things. Screw them, I say. We riot.

This has nothing to do with graphics cards. Their Superflower made PSUs have been solid performers with long warranty and I would pick one over even corsairs in a heart beat.

And no they are not acting like nothing happened, they have acknowledged the problem and have made a statement that it is good enough reason to rma the card or given instructions to consumers how to fix problem by itself(bios fix is bad I know and I don't know why someone wanted to use it when evga does not void warranty for cooler changes. Few thermal pads and you are done). What else you want them to do?

Serious question, what problem do you have with how EVGA is handling it's GTX 1000 series GPU issue? They've identified the problem, issued a VBIOS as a temporary fix, offered additional thermal pads at no cost so that the effected modules get proper cooling, and even offered no questions asked, cross-shipped, RMAs if you aren't comfortable installing the pads yourself.

What more do you want them to do?
