    Their should be a Pinned "Information & FAQ's" under every needed area of the Forum.
    Most Members to not even know about the EVGA FAQ Help Center as their is no link from the Forums in a since.
    Their is a link under SERVICE at the top on the page but who looks their for Help?

    Re: EVGA Power Supply Information 2019/01/20 10:30:25 (permalink)
    Hi folks!
    I Recently bought a motherboard of MSI, 
    Model: MSI MEG X299 CREATION.

    Will the EVGA SUPERNOVA G3 850W be compatible with the motherboard X299 MSI MEG CREATION?
    None of the models of EVGA appears in the compatibility list:

     
    Well. In the specs this motherboard specified that it must be connected wiht 3 units of 4+4 (8 pines) EPS for CPU supply.
    I have a PSU G3 850W, that, like most of the PSUS, have only 2 EPS/CPU connectors. In other models of other companies, the connectors to VGA/PCI are also compatible with the CPU/EPS, and the solution is buying a new (third) cable.


     
    Is that solution possible in the G3 850W ?
     
    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the Forum.
    Your EVGA SUPERNOVA G3 850W should work just fine with that motherboard.
    https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MEG-X299-CREATION/Overview
    http://download.msi.com/archive/mnu_exe/E7C06v1.0.zip

    You may get away with only using 2 EPS Connectors.
    Connect power supply to CPU_PWR1 and ATX_PWR1. (No other components are
    necessary but power supply.)

    https://storage-asset.msi.com/file/test_report/TR7_15283.pdf Power Supplies, MSI must really dislike EVGA.
    But you will need two to support 3 CPU EPS Connectors. Or get a Server Class Power Supply.
    Or the Y-Adaptor show below. Not Recommend.
    You cannot use a PCIe Graphics Cable on the EPS CPU Connector nor an can you use a EPS Cable on a Graphics Card.
    But this type of Motherboard looks to need a 1000 Watt or even a 1200 Watt Power Supply so an 850 might be to small.
     

    AYA 7" 8-Pin EPS-12V Male to Dual 8-Pin EPS-12V Female Y Splitter Cable 18AWG Black
     
    It might have been better to create your own Thread on this Subject to get more members to review.
    EVGA Power Supply Information & FAQ's most members would not even read it.

    good forum, I have a question ... recently and I made a rma of a power supply .. the question is if EVGA reviews the product that is sent to you before sending a new product?

    is that they have sent me a new source and I do not know if they have reviewed the one I sent ..

    I'm sure they do.

    my partner has just requested a new rma of the product evga 850w g2, these units must be defective and heard that there are people who have had to transact 5 or 6 rma ..a shame ... I hope not to have to pay shipping costs ...

    I also use EVGA and it provides best power supply but from last few days, it shows an error  and also occurs power supply problem so I really want a proper solution to get my power supply frequently without any error.
