Under the Hood
Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside the EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 and 850 G2 Gold power supplies. Internally the two units are very similar as you would expect as they are both built upon the proven Superflower Leadex Gold platform. Superflower is a very capable OEM and one of the few who can go head-to-head with Seasonic. Superflower is the same OEM that EVGA uses for several of their very successful higher output, premium power supplies.
The two new EVGA G2 power supplies utilize an LLC resonant converter topology to minimize switching losses and help boost efficiency. Two DC-to-DC converters are used on the secondary to produce the +3.3V and +5V minor rails from the +12V main section.
All of the capacitors used inside the new 750 G2 and 850 G2 PSUs are high-quality Nippon Chemi-Con electrolytics with a few solid polymer caps located on the DC-to-DC converter boards. The 750 G2 incorporates two primary capacitors rated for 330 uF, 400V and 105°C (the 850 G2 uses one 330 uF and one 390 uf). The overall component layout is clean, leaves room for good airflow and the soldering appears good.

The PSU modular connectors are shit. Typical plastic-to-plastic where you must apply humongous pressure so as to get it connected/disconnected (let alone when a couple of years have passed by, thus some heat and whatnot has been around – I expect it to break by then).
Also, the Sata cables would just not fit, so I’m stuck with a Molex-to-Sata adaptor, while I mail EVGA about it.
That’s unfortunate to hear.
That’s unfortunate to hear. The Super Flower branded Leadex Gold 750 has the best modular sockets and cables I’ve ever used. Certainly a pleasure to use after years with Seasonic’s horrible ‘death grip’ cables/sockets. The fit is firm and secure, but requires no excessive force. Same applies to the motherboard-end connectors, with the 24 pin one going in easily even on the first insertion. The SATA and 4-pin molex connectors are still fairly tight, but no worse than any others I’ve experienced (and that 4-pin molex is just a hideous, hideous design to begin with).
I had hoped that the G2 would be using the same connectors as the leadex, just without the LEDs, but it sounds like this isn’t the case.
That’s funny. I haven’t had
That’s funny. I haven’t had any issues with the cables or connectors. They’re super flexible, silicone even, and the “plastic shit” connectors make a good, solid, tight connection without having to do any forcing or any of that ridiculousness. I don’t expect them to break anytime in the lifespan of this PSU, not very easily anyway. The SATA power cables fit perfectly and weren’t difficult to connect what-so-ever.

Hi, I’m a bit of a newbie to this, or I can’t read lol, but does this PSU come with a 4-pin molex power connector? (I will use it for the NZXT Hue+ which uses a 2-pin male molex connector for power). I will need it to have power directly from the PSU, so will I be able to do this straight out of the box?

Lists the connectors on the second page, looks like you would be good.
