Incredible Functionality

EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 P+ 220-PP-1300-X1 1300 W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 P+ 220-PP-1300-X1 1300 W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: -Every connection and cable is clearly wired. -Great reliability. -Extremely lightweight model without power loss. -Triple SATA 3 connectors spaced decently for the multiple drives. -Great option for cable management and power consumption.

Cons: My only complaints would be specific to my situation, and still this works better in every way compared to the all the other competitors and options I reviewed.

Overall Review: I waited 3 months to review in case EVGA's quality had gone down, not one sign of that from what I have seen. I bought this because I am upgrading an old computer and building a new one. The old EVGA 750W power supply is still running after 14 years, but I wanted to run more on the new one, so I kept it for the old one. Selectable cables is definitely an improvement. I love that the cables are clearly labeled so no mistakes could be made. I don't understand how this power supply is only 5 lbs and just affordable and powerful as all the other options. Quiet, easy fit, easy install. Power cord is a decent length. I am glad it can't accidentally send 220/240V through. Perfect for a beginner, and for future upgrades on a high end system and was affordable. I don't think I will need another for another 15 years at least. The power supply and motherboard are the only components I didn't have to second guess.

0/2, 2 Bad Motherboards of this model in a row

ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PRO WIFI II AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PRO WIFI II AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: -Advertised features outshines competition.

Cons: -Advertised features useless when product doesn't work. -This is about second motherboard, still unbelievably horrible experience. -Had same issue as first with the USBs and PS/2 repeatedly connecting and disconnecting at random times. -New issue with this one where the screen would occasionally replicate the taskbar up the screen at random times. -CEO's office was much more willing to try to address the issue, but limited by the tech support who didn't really do anything helpful. -Warranty requires you to spend more money in shipping and potentially get a refurbished inferior model. -Tech support and warranty should not be relied on in purchasing decision, as it is virtually non-existent and extremely frustrating. Better option is to return before time runs out.

Overall Review: I would not trust this model because I had two opportunities and both had multiple issues, and not all the same. It may damage other components. And I learned the hard way not to trust ASUS to rectify any issues that are clearly their problems. If it worked as advertised, it would have been optimal. But over 3 months of being treated poorly made it a clear mistake purchasing this and building a PC around the supposed capabilities. New motherboard from different manufacturer so far has none of these issues.
