We'd overclock a toaster if given the chance, so it's safe to say EVGA has our full attention in introducing its SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified power supply that, when paired with special software, allows users to crank up the maximum power output by another 150 watts. We're crazy enough to appreciate a feature like that, even if it's probably not practical 99 percent of the time, but it's that 1 percent that excites us.
Overclocking isn't the only thing you can use EVGA's exclusive SuperNOVA software for. You can also use it to monitor voltage, current on each of the rails, power used, efficiency, change the fan profile, and even switch between single or multiple +12V rails (of which there are eight). According to EVGA, choosing a single +12V rail will help you with extreme overclocks, while multiple +12V rails offer extra stability in day-to-day usage.
Software aside, the SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified is 80 Plus Gold certified, modular with individually sleeved cables, and sports 100 percent Japanese capacitors. Connectors consist of:
2 x 8-pin EPS12V
3 x 6-pin PCIe
16 x 6+2 pin PCIe
12 x SATA
8 x molex
2 x floppy
EVGA didn't say how much its new flagship PSU will cost or when it will be available. The company did, however, say the PSU is backed by a 10 year warranty.
