First off, there are MANY sites that offer wattage calculators for how much your system draws at peak useage... long story short, the average home computer with a single graphics card usually maxes out around 300W give or take. That doesn't mean buy a 300W PSU (don't do that!)... you never want your system to reach your PSU's max wattage, and the most efficient power draw a PSU ever reaches is usually around 50% max load... so if your system pulls around 300w, you want a PSU around 600w capacity for maximum efficiency. So unless you're running a ton of peripherals and two or more graphics cards, the average computer owner should be looking in the 550w-650w range... anything more is just throwing your money out the window and your PSU will be less effiicent since it won't even reach 50% of it's max draw.
I was very happy with this PSU... it's the perfect wattage, it runs very quiet, it has an econo-mode, it's small, its fully modular, and the cables that come with the PSU are all black wires from beginning to end... not a single "ketchup and mustard" wire to be found with this PSU. It even comes with a bag to hold all your modular wires that are not in use. Also, becuase it is fully modular, it makes it easy to get replacement cables for custom wiring jobs as-in my pictures. I purchased the Cablemods E-Series replacement cables for my G3 PSU and was very happy with the results.
Make sure after you purchase your EVGA PSU you register it with EVGA (through their website) to get the extended warranty... you have to register within 30 days of purchase to get the extended warranty... otherwise, you're stuck with a much shorter warranty. It's free and only takes a couple minutes, so make sure you knock that out!
I've been using multiple EVGA PSUs for the many systems I have in my house and have never had one fail on me... I might replace one from time to time for various reasons, but it's never been becasue of a failure. EVGA has me as a happy return customer! You'd be wise to get one of their PSUs.
That is HARD BS and I will not be buying any more PSU's from EVGA. You give a warranty when a customer buys a product, you don't shoehorn in stuff like this. Completely ridiculous. Will be returning without a doubt.
After digging through pages upon pages of reviews, I decided on the EVGA 650 G3, ultimately because of the review from jonnyguru, who is pretty much the authoritative source for PSU reviews. He basically gave this a near-perfect score and basically said that EVGA is capable of competing with the "big boys" of PSU brands, and with their 10 year warranty on this thing, it's great knowing that I'll have a PSU I can use in future builds.
Much like the AX750 I got, the PSU came in a nice little cloth bag with all the modular power cables also in its own bag. The included power cord was a beefy and thick high gauge one (don't know the number offhand, but it was *really* thick) and the documentation was great. It was a little easier to route the cables on this thing compared to the AX750 - the connectors on the PSU were located higher than on the AX750 since it was designed with being mounted with the exhaust port facing up.
Worked right off the bat as soon as I turned it on. This PSU does have an "economy" mode so the fan *will initially not spin when you flip it on*. This part puzzled me but after I read up about it I learned it's completely normal for the PSU and is a feature of their newer models, including the G3 variant.
Don't be fooled by builders who tell you you NEED a 750 or higher watt power supply. It depends completely on your build and what's most important is the amount of amperage that is provided by the 12v rail, as that's the rail that is used to power your GPU and your optical drives. The 650 is able to pack almost 55 amps on that single rail, which is more than enough for most midrange to upper midrange builds, especially if you're only doing light to moderate overclocking.
For $90 (at the time of this writing) you can't go wrong with this PSU. It's a little bit on the pricey side, but you absolutely *do not* want to cheap out on the PSU. Pay a few less bucks for the lesser wattage, sure (the 650 is a bit cheaper than its big brother the 850), but do *not* buy a low quality no-name brand. You do not want to end up frying your expensive PC because you chose to cheap out on this part. On bad days you might get a fried computer and on even worse days you might be running with a fire hazard in your home. Just get the better stuff - you'll get more bang for your buck out of it.
Lastly, EVGA's customer service is top notch. They have a 24/7 technical support line that is located right here in the US. You will get a breathing human that doesn't have a frustrating to understand accent at any time of day, and you know how the worst computer problems always seem to happen when *no one is open*. They're prompt to respond via e-mails via their ticket system (which has stayed pretty much the same since the mid 2000's, which isn't a problem since it's very efficient) and sometimes if you take issues to the forums they'll even respond to you over there. You won't go wrong with these folks. Excellent customer service brings return customers - Corsair I may not buy their PSUs as much, but I would always recommend their other products. EVGA's made a believer out of me with their GPUs, mobos, and now PSUs.

I’m not entirely sure if this PSU is supposed to come with a power cable (logically it would, but the manual doesn’t list one?), so perhaps mine was just missing, but no big deal as it’s a generic cable anyways.
On to the power supply, it’s awesome! Nice quality modular cables, small form factor and you can’t even hear it when loaded up.
I am a bit perplexed by the PCIE cable offering though... a single line 6+2 and a double branched 6+2. I’m not entirely sure what you would need 3x 6+2 for on a 650w supply, but hey.
Please note this DOES NOT have two EPS cables. I’ve read some comments that are about the older supply that did include two, but this has only a lone 4+4. If you have a board with an 8+4, you’ll be fine with just 8 anyways.
Anyways, EVGA makes excellent products and I would highly recommend this PSU.
There is a compoente in it that is 90c+ So.. yeah.. But again that was messured using 'FanSpeed' Program, the all so famous buggy Program that some swear by some do not. Now I am not either of those. Never am, never will be.
Just I find it odd that this app will say that and yet I do find the PSU acting odd some times, and!; Windows does get feedback from it, Like I'll put my PC into sleep .. not a minute after .. :) guess what. YEP!; t's back on.. -_-
When this happens I hear a clicking and other few sounds.. so I am thinking it could be the Houses Power, the wiring, it is old, like 1950! or older. :) lol, I really it would get upgraded.
Anyway, when I go into windows events etc so on, this is what it states:
Log Name: System

Description: (This right here -----> ) "The system has returned from a low power state."

So it's not getting enough power so it turns the system back on, I also have it plugged into a Smart Power Tower.
It's an older one too, iGO I think it is.
Bought it way way back when that was first coming out, smart power bars, all that.
So it could be that too.
With my Dell XPS 8700 I decided to move my DVD player down one slot so I could get away with using only one SATA cable! It worked perfectly!! Not too difficult to move the DVD down and makes for less cable mess in case! All my cable excess is able to sit up in the void where the DVD was in the top slot! Looks very tidy and should allow awesome air flow for this tight tower!
I hardly notice this PSU's fan is running and I have been able to power my i7 8086K+ RX580 8GB, 1 NVME, 1 2.5 Inch SSD and 1 2.5 inch HDD no problem. The only dislike about this product is that the GPU power connectors supplied are only 8-pin connectors ( 2x 8 pin) which looks ugly if you are using a GPU with 8+6 PIN configuration because you will have the 2 PIN connector sticking out beside your GPU.
So far I am *very* happy with this PSU. It came well packaged, with a nice little sack for the unused modular cables, as well as some velcro cable ties. Touches like that don't make/break it, but are a nice attention to detail. I did some noise tests between this PSU and the Thermaltake 650W I had purchased, and it wasn't even close, and that was before I enabled ECO mode on this PSU which disables the fan completely at low load.
My desktop is effectively "silent" again when not being used for heavy load activities like gaming, which was exactly what I hoped this PSU would do for me. Well worth the extra $40-50.
Where this power source loses a point however, is the sounds it makes when powering down; when turned off the PSU makes an audible 'ping', and then for a minute after powering off, emits a low whine. Not deal breakers, but somewhat disconcerting and worrying,
Check the price of the equivalent-W G2 model before purchasing. The G3 is a bit smaller (for case compatibility), has a better fan (quieter), is slightly more efficient, and was only $5 CDN more at the time, but I wouldn't spend anything over $10-15 CDN for it.
I'd recommend this power supply to any first time PC builders (don't cheap out on your power supply) as well as anyone who frequently uses their PC enough to profit from the gold efficiency rating compared to buying a cheaper power supply.
Otherwise you get what you paid for, a decent power supply.
Note: mine had a eco mode that shuts the fan down in low-power strain moments. Which wasn’t necessary, but quieting.
