EVGA issued a recall notice to a small batch of SuperNova series PSUs, specifically models 1000 G2, 1000 P2, and 1300 G2, after it discovered a manufacturing flaw affecting entire batches. The affected batches went into distribution before October 1st, 2013; so if your unit was bought after that, it's not affected. The defect involves the lack of sufficient insulation material on the thermal pads of certain heatsinks, which could cause the overheat protection to kick in, and the PSU to shut down. EVGA set up a page where you can input the serial number of your unit, to check if it's part of the bad batch. If it is, you can apply for RMA, and the company will freely replace the unit (including shipping), and toss in a free EVGA t-shirt. The support page can be accessed here.
