As you can see in the table above, EVGA currently offers nine different variations of 750W power supplies. Let’s get started with the review and see if the new 750W G2L model can deliver the same great performance we have come to expect from the original G2 Series.

Really nice PSU, as always, from EVGA. Are the LEDs on when the PSU is connected with power, but the system is power down? Those LEDs will be really helpful when trying to connect a power cable but the room lighting doesn't help.

PS. I am reading that some EVGA FTW like going SuperNOVA because of bad PWM cooling.

Here's some thermal pads suckaz, fix it yourself, signed EVGA! The FTW line of GPUs should be calld the WTF line. I'd RMA that crap right back to EVGA, let them fix it!

If the user has to apply the pads does it void the warranty?

Based on an email that a Greek forum member got from EVGA as a reply, they do NOT acknowledge a problem, they insist that the cards DO NOT need those pads. They just give those pads as a free service to their customers. Funny right? Cards don't need pads, but take them and use them.

Have owned a 1080ftw since release, 0 issues, my pc is on 24/7, and I regularly play games that use 90% of what the card has to give or more. Never seen it above 65c under full load in a mid tower with everything else air cooled.

I know that 1 person's experience is not indicative of the experience those with issues have had... but I'm more inclined to think that EVGA is right, and they may well be having issues but are in the vocal minority. I know 2 other people that bought the same card, from completely separate outlets, and neither of them have had issues either. One has it stuffed in a micro atx case with garbage airflow too...

No, unfortunately the LEDs only come On when the PSU turns on.

Pity. It would have been a useful feature, rarely necessary, but useful.

You said :
• (1) 20+4 pin ATX
• (1) 8-pin EPS/ATX12V
• (4) 6-pin PCI-E
• (2) SATA
• (2) Molex

At second page there was 2x 8-pin EPS, which one is correct?
Regards

The full specs are given on page two, which list two 8-pin (4+4) ATX/EPS connectors - this is correct.

The table you quoted is a list of the connectors I used for testing (however, it should have shown two 8-pin EPS being used instead of one - fixed). Sorry for the confusion.

gold should be made a defualt standard for power supply units, and should be starting at 60$ to save the world energy/environmental crisis
