The EVGA Supernova 750W G3 power supply is rated for a combined, continuous output power of up to 750 watts at 50°C operating temperature. The PSU incorporates a single +12V rail that can deliver up to 62.4A (748.8W) on the +12V output.  The PSU includes universal AC line input (automatically adjusts the AC line voltage 100-240 VAC) and active PFC, which makes the unit more environmentally friendly to the local power grid.

Who is the actual manufacturer? Do EVGA produce it themselves or they are partnering with Seasonic or CWT etc ?

"Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside the EVGA Supernova 750W G3 power supply. The Supernova G3 Series is built by Super-Flower and is based on a second generation Leadex platform."

Have the powersupply manufacturers ever standardized the modular connectors? I have a bunch laying around that I am too chicken to try.

Hi, I asked in the office chat and unfortunately the answer is no. The modular connectors are not standardized between manufacturers or even between PSUs from the same manufactures (sometimes you can swap them within the same line but not always).

Good review!

Question: how well does this compare to the Seasonic Focus Plus series (SSR-750FX) in your opinion? The F+ kindasorta won by a slim margin in JohnnyGuru's testing, but their rating system is a little... eccentric.

Obviously they're both awesome units but if you had to choose...

I've been a SS loyalist and pricing on the F+ series is very competitive, but there was some concern with the F+ units' small fan resulting in annoying noise.

Another question: what's the benefit of a fully modular PSU? Do they expect people to run their PSUs without the ATX12v cable? Is it just for easy-ish replacement if you happen to damage a cable? Would be a lot more valuable IMHO if they bundled shorter and longer cables for different case/mobo combos.

Thanks, its always good to know that readers find our reviews helpful.

First question: Yes, both the EVGA 750W G3 and the Seasonic 650W Focus+ Gold PSUs proved to be excellent. Performance wise they are very close, both with very good voltage regulation, AC ripple suppression and efficiency (the 750W G3 had slightly better AC ripple suppression). The EVGA G3 also uses a slightly larger fan (128mm vs the Seasonic F+ 120mm) but they both are relatively quiet through mid-power range and both have FDB. And they are both backed by a 10-year warranty. So your final purchasing decision may come down to price - which one has the lower cost when you want to buy one (at this moment the Seasonic 750W F+ is about $20 less than the EVGA 750W G3).

Second question: I personally prefer a semi-modular PSU with a fixed 24-pin, 4+4 ATX CPU, and a pair of PCI-E cable/connectors. Its not like these are optional. Being fully modular adds more connection points (potential for added resistance/slight voltage drop) and a little bulk to the front of the PSU. I suspect manufacturers are going fully modular to lower production costs by eliminating the extra labor required to hand solder fixed leads.
