There's 80 Plus Gold in this here power supply!

EVGA , a company that's best known for pumping out Nvidia-based graphics cards, is so confident in its new SuperNova 1000 G2 power supply that it's backing the unit with a 10-year warranty. Of course, we learned from watching Tommy Boy (NSFW) that guarantees are only as good as what's inside the box, and in this instance, EVGA is packaging a high-end power supply that's 80 Plus Gold certified with up to 90 percent efficiency under typical loads.

The SuperNova 1000 G2 delivers up to 83.3A over a single +12V rail. Both the +5V and +3.3V rails are rated to deliver up to 20A (100W combined), and both are less important than the almighty +12V rail, which feeds power to the CPU, GPU, and certain peripherals.

It's a fully modular power supply with heavy-duty components inside, including a vertical double layer main transformer and Japanese Nippon Chemi-Con solid state capacitors. Connectors bundled with the PSU include:

  • 1 x 24 pin ATX
  • 2 x 4+4 pin EPS12V
  • 6 x 6+2 pin PCI-E
  • 2 x 6-pin PCI-E
  • 10 x SATA
  • 5 x Molex
  • 1 x Floppy

The EVGA SuperNova 1000 G2 is available to purchase now directly from EVGA for $200.
