Actually, according to this page P2 does have over current and over temperature protection..
who said that it does
"Heavy-duty protections, including OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OPP (Over Power Protection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection), and OTP (Over Temperature Protection)"
aa sorry I didn't get this. Nope it doesn't have. It is actually an SF Leadex Platinum which on the site mentions of OCP but on the user's manual it doesn't include it. Of course no OTP on both occassions and on top of that OCP in a 1000W single rail unit is a bad joke.
Did you happen to measure the minimum (<200 W loads) fan rpm when the eco mode was turned off?
Got my EVGA P2 1000 today. Totally overkill capacity wise, but your (and Jonnyguru's) review got me interested. This is the third power supply I bought for a new build. First got a Seasonic 520 W Platinum fanless, but it had a loud buzz/whine. It was replaced by a Corsair AX760i, but its clicking fan in idle and whine was a big disappointment.
But the EVGA. Holy moly. No noise unless I put my ear right next to the vents. No fear of the fan ever running with my system. Highly recommended!
Oh, the non-eco mode is too loud, but no reason to use it.
