Introducing the ultimate value in the EVGA Power Supply lineup; the GQ series. These power supplies take some of the best features from EVGA's award winning power supply lineup, like EVGA ECO fan mode for near silent operation, Japanese Capacitors, and a highly efficient design, at an excellent value. These new power supplies are 80 Plus Gold rated and offer an outstanding 5 Year Warranty that's backed by world class EVGA support.

Whisper Silent - The EVGA ECO mode feature ensures that the power supply stays completely silent during low to medium loads. The fan does not spin until necessary, allowing for completely silent operation! Unrivaled Performance - 90% efficiency or higher under typical loads and 100% of the highest quality Japanese brand capacitors ensure long-term reliability. Modular Design - Semi-modular design allows you to only use the cables you need, helping to improve case airflow, eliminate unnecessary wires and best of all, reduce cable clutter.



Features:
  • 80 PLUS Gold certified, with 90% (115VAC) / 92% (220VAC~240VAC) efficiency or higher under typical loads
  • NVIDIA SLI & AMD Crossfire Ready
  • 5 Year Warranty and unparalleled EVGA Customer Support
  • Modular Design to reduce clutter and improve airflow
  • 100% Japanese Capacitors ensure long-term reliability
  • Active Clamp +DC to DC design for efficient operation
  • EVGA ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System eliminates fan noise at low to medium loads

The EVGA SuperNova GQ series is an FSP Aurum PT which was damm good (not like the old crappy FSP Aurum) it just has lower efficiency and its been made semi modular.

Otherwise its still very good almost as good as the G2 so there is no reason not buy one.

I'm tempted to contest that as the Superflower LeadEx is just so darn ahead of the pack, but Aurum PT is certainly a viable and quality platform as well. Just Leadex's ripple supression still is so ahead of the rest of the crew it makes me cringe to compare... not that it really makes a difference when you are talking that low though.

Side note: Nice to see EVGA finally dump the stamped steel fan grill.

Leadex has around 15mv ripple while Aurum PT has around 20-25mv, those 5-10mv are almost nothing which is the reason why i said almost as good.

The Seasonic XP3 units are also around the 25mv mark so the Aurum PT is on par with some of the best Seasonic has to offer.

As long as the price is lower then the G2 or GS there is no reason not to buy a GQ

The lower wattage leadex's (in this range) from evgas lineup have under 6mv ripple... But don't get me wrong, I agree completely. It was more of a "something inside me wants to disagree" more than a legit complaint or concern. ;)

Word of warning from a owner of higher level P2s. EVGA magnificent PSU power delivery-wise on one side. On the other (very) loud fan (unless disabled by EcoMode) and idiotically rigid cables. Keep that in mind.

I own a P2. The fan isn't that loud to me, and eco mode makes it a pretty small issue IMO. Of course your opinion may differ.

I agree about the stiff cables though.
