Ripple that low is really good for overclocking/undervolting.

will be are nice the all oems put more efforces for high eficiency and low loads like 50-100w and keep over the 90% of eficiency this really saves bills of energy and are most ecofriendy because the mostly of power consumtion are in low loads, there are psu like cooler master series v 550-650-750 and have over 90% and 40w of consumtion..o.o really amazing

I like black all connectors and VGA cables. Sleeve kit for me is full black best too.
Bridging-plug is excellent for someone who build water-cooling rig for leak test and later to drain and fill loop.
Maybe nicest of all their PSU for now together with 1000 P2. I mean that two options could be most interest for all people.
At the moment EVGA PSU section is strong as graphic card, not expensive and unmatched warranty period.
24pin wire have longer "free wires" from both sides... it's easier for people without angled 24pin connector on motherboard.



I don't know... but when you look this case of PSU only to check over net to confirm price/performance/warranty period and nothing else.
Even I like to install as on picture... In this position, natural.

"Hold-up time is a very important PSU characteristic" it says in this report

The EVGA Supernova 1200 P 1200 Watt PSU failed the above ATX test by quiet a margin.

So how come this is so highly rated a PSU in the report conclusion.

I find this kinda strange. Maybe someone can help us all out here !

Maybe, but not so to Johhny Guru give negative points for that. And he have very strict criterion.
PSU have 10/10 score and all Super Flower models have similar characteristic and nobody bother because of that.
None of models get negative points on that as part of Performance score.
Last 3 years with Z77 platform my PC worked 85% of all time day and night. Only 15% he was off.
At the end this PSU is gift to me and I respect that. OK I got NEX1500 Classified but he die and model was not so good as this.
Because of that I can say as 1200 P2 is gift to me. Instead 1600W I chose more efficient but still strong.
PSU is more than I need and because of that constantly work in fanless mode, with Eco Switch fan never start to work but regardless on that PSU case is cold.
I'm very thankful that was only gift I got from anybody and it's not nice to look some stupid little flaws. I always ask self why someone pay 150-160e for 500W fanless. Instead to buy 850W with Eco Switch anyway will work and fan will not spin.
