Under the Hood
Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside the EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 Platinum power supply. EVGA is once again using Super Flower as the OEM for the SuperNOVA 1200 P2. Super Flower is a very capable OEM and one of the few who can go head-to-head with Seasonic.
The new EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 power supply utilizes a modern full-bridge design with LLC resonant converter topology to minimize switching losses and help increase 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 1200 P2 PSU are high-quality Nippon Chemi-Con electrolytics and solid polymer caps. The PSU incorporates two primary capacitors rated for 560 uF, 400V and 105°C. The overall component layout is clean, leaves room for good airflow and the soldering appears very good.
