Pros: 100% modular and over 90% power efficient. Also totally silent. 1000 watts is plenty of power for my new rig. See other thoughts but when you buy EVGA you are buying happiness. =D
Cons: This power supply was not DOA but literally exploded after 7 hours of use. Sounded like a capacitor. RMA process was the best I could ever have expected.
Overall Review: Alright, so this power supply only worked for 7 hours of driver installs, steam downloads, and windows update restarts. During a boot up after a restart, I was sitting there with my dog and all of a sudden POP! a capacitor exploded. Loud as heck haha. Anyhow... I dont believe it fried anything.
Here is what everyone reading this should take away from my opinion and rating. There was a small recall of this product due to a number of units not receiving enough thermal padding. My unit was just outside the selection of defective products but when i contacted EVGA via the phone i got a knowledgeable and helpful guy looking to have a helpful conversation... not a customer relations rant. He told me step by step where i could monitor the Advanced RMA he set up for me and how, at NO cost to me, they would send me a new product right away with 3 day select shipping complete with a return shipping label for the defective PSU. He also told me that if i wanted they could send it without the accessories so that the cords connected through my rig could remain and we only replace the PSU itself.
I thanked him, wished him a happy Christmas and went to the sight to check i was gettign what he proposed. Sure enough everything was as he said and I am a very happy customer awaiting the new PSU. Trust these guys. They will do good by you and make quality products that they verify even at expense to them.
