EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 220-P2-1000-XR 80+ PLATINUM 1000W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Seems to deliver the power I need.

Cons: The fan is SUPER loud.
Power draw is has concerning spikes a few times per second.

Other Thoughts: Just installed the PSU.
Immediately after turning it on, easily doubled the noise from my tower. All that time spent researching quiet case fans, wasted. Its not a bad bearing or anything, its just spinning really fast. I haven't tried "eco" mode yet, but that's a feature I didn't want to use.
But MUCH more worrying is watching the PSU's power draw from my UPS. While using my old PSU, electrical load on my UPS was fairly consistent while idling. With this PSU that is not the case, I see it bouncing between 70w and 300w (and everywhere in between) a few times a second. Between the fan that is always on full blast and the inconsistent power draw, I'm worried that this PSU may be defective.
