JimdurtWould like to hear from EVGA as to why there are so many reports of GA variant power supplies shutting down with RTX 3080 and 3090 gpu. I contacted EVGA support after my power supply shut down with the Asus ROG STRIX 3090. They immediately acknowledged the problem and are sending a 1000w G+ psu as a replacement. The 850GA is the cheapest 850w EVGA psu that is shown on PC Part Picker if you sort by minimum of QTY(3) - 8(6+2) pin VGA cables. There are so many "Rate my builds" on reddit with potential customers selecting this combination of psu and gpu. Is this wide spread or just wait and see how many call tech support for warranty? Why is EVGA replacing with 1000w psu instead of a different suffix 850w? Cost or availability? Or because the 3090 really needs more than 850w? I haven't seen other brand 850w psu being reported with this issue. I'm guessing it's the GA variant only.
Homer2123Hi, i also have this Problem with my supernova 850 Ga and a 2080ti and 6900xtThe Hole PC is shutting down and its Not possible to Power on until i Switched the on and Off Button on the PSU.First i thought my Graphic Card is maybe broken but i Switched to a 6900xt and the Same Problem happened.I found Out it happens if i increase the Graphic Card Power Target to 15% and than Run a Game or Benchmark .Maybe the PSU shut down because the cards are Drawing to much Power ?With my old PSU i never had a Problem increasing the Power Target .
DallenzaoI just RMAd mine. They told me that it was an issue with the psu, and there is a revised model. The bad model number is 220-GA-0850, which the revised one is 220-GA-0850-X1. I get it in a few days so hopefully it works Ok.
Homer2123Yesterday i got my rma product Supernova 850 ga.Today i tryed it and what should i Say still the Same issue with the replacement PSU !6900xt Graphic Card Power shut down at gaming on heavy load.I Always get this If i try to Play a Battle royale Match in CoD warzone .So evga i think your product Line is broken .Sad i Sold my old be quiet dark Power which didnt Had any Problems But i wanted to Upgrade and get a Future product with 10 years warranty but this product doesnt seems to Work with high end Graphic cards
