Re: Where Are The SuperNOVA G7 Reviews?
With EVGA power supplies, usually the first question we have is who the OEM is because EVGA has used a few, to varying degrees of success and that helps you get an idea which direction it'll probably go. The G3 was Super Flower, G5 was FSP, G6 was Seasonic, and G7 is FSP again. Of the first three (that have reviews out there), the FSP has the worst reviews. The G3 was outstanding (can confirm...I have one), though some early review samples had some kind of issue with OPP that was problematic, and I haven't heard a bad word about G6's at all.
When you look at reviews for the G5, the one thing that seems to have caused the most problems (or at least, most negative remarks and outcomes) was the ACRF primary side topology. The G7 on the other hand has the half-bridge LLC resonant topology that the reviewers were all saying they wished the G5 had. So...can you look at a G5 review and just ignore any negative remarks about that topic? I'm not sure...but I think it would be in that general direction.
Obviously, you're right that without reviews we don't know if there's some weird quality issue with the G7 that hasn't come to light yet, or it could even go the other way and be somehow the best 1000W gold power supply the world has ever seen.
