They are pretty solid PSU all around. 12 years warranty as well.

I had some bad lemons in the past with various hardware but I wouldn't judge a company base on a single sample size. If anything, I would judge them even harder depending how they handle their warranty process and customer service.

On a side-note, Seasonic recently upgraded their warranty to 12 years as well.

Amen to the power supply spam. I wish they made more reliable PSU's.

Sorry but when you have to copy and paste every one and then copy and paste the url's into it as well it gets annoying.

They aren't so bad really. 12 years warranty as well.
Ok. Mine blew up within the first 3 months, I had to ship it to them on my own dime, and work with Intel to get the CPU replaced under warranty. I even tried the faulty PSU in another computer because I was blown away that it went bad that soon. I stick with sea sonic, and enermax.

The best 12 year warranty is the one you don't need to use Wave

I understand your logic and believe that you may have had problems with yours. I know that each company will have their problems though. EVGA does have really good reviews (4.5/5) on most sites so I trust that yours was part of that 0.5 Wink

Perhaps you are correct. The item in question was a EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 T2, 80+ Titanium, Fully modular power supply that I paid $242.99 at the time. I looked up the reviews for this supply on Amazon, and noticed 7 other reviews with 1 stars. Either dead on arrival, or failing within a few months. A errant outlier? I doubt it.

I ended up with a 650 watt Seasonic Platnium instead, as of right now, there are a grand total of zero 1-star reviews for the psu I replaced it with. And my replacement CPU hasn't exploded either! Smilie

I snickered a little at the PowerLink, but then I started wondering about those added filter capacitors. Do they actually improve stability, or is that just a gimick to convince people it has a purpose other than autism'ing your cables?

I have Power Links on my Titan Pascal setup, I can't tell a difference. There's a document somewhere explaining voltage sag with long cables, and how the gauge of the wire affects voltage drop.
