EVGA have updated their SuperNOVA family of PSUs with the G2L series, so named because of the glow emitted by the plugs for your cables. Some may be disappointed they did not chose to utilize RGB lighting with several million colour possibilities, others will indeed prefer the simple white glow.
The PSUs come with EVGA's 10 year warranty and ECO mode, Lee has this covered previously, which manages the noise levels produced by the fan and allowing that fan to remain unpowered until 20% load is reached. This series will come with an 80 PLUS Gold rating, which EVGA does have a history of deserving when they display the rating. Full PR is below the lens flare.
September 19th, 2016 – The unbeatable performance of the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 power supply line is now available with LED lighting in the new G2L versions. These units feature 80 Plus Gold rate efficiency, and clean continuous power to every component. The ECO Control Fan system offers fan modes to provide absolutely zero fan noise during low to medium load operations. Backed by an award winning 10 Year Warranty, and 100% Japanese capacitor design, the EVGA SuperNOVA 850/750 G2L power supplies offer unbeatable performance at an unbeatable value.

Are you guys disappointed
Are you guys disappointed every time lighting isn’t RGB? I am going to be disappointed if all the lighting in the church isn’t RGB.

LEDs are like a virus for PC
LEDs are like a virus for PC hardware this year. Not sure about anyone else, but I could really care less about having LEDs on my motherboard, graphics card or in this PSU 🙁

This lighting seems like a gimmick, although the improved connectors could add value. If they drop the price to a maximum of 10 dollars more than the original, then I would consider purchasing this over the original.

If the LED’s were tied to a function, say, as power draw goes up, that would at least be something to tip a hat to. But this, nah. Boring ass designers and the engineers that work for them.
PS. You heard it here first EVGA. Royalty cheques can be sent to Mr. Book @ ….

Can’t wait till LED phase dies out.
SIGH. The LED everything
SIGH. The LED everything phase needs to end really soon. Mouse and keyboard makes some sense for desk bling, but an LED power supply is just silly.
I do own an LED mouse (Logitech G303) with the LEDs disabled constantly. Am I part of the problem?

LEDs allow the manufacturers to charge more cause. .. Bling Yo!

I was in to custom cars a great deal when I was younger. From car stereo to body mods and flashy paint, so I come from a hobby that loves aestetics. With that said there is a difference between classy&clean and over the top& blingy. I build watercooled pc’s now and aesthetics are super important to my customers and myself. But led everything is like chrome 27″ rims on a candy purple olds cutlas. Now with all the liquid dye, see-through blocks, and led everything taste is a very important commodity. They put the lights in a stupid place in my opinion. Why make the plugs light up? Maybe the fan or the logo. I’m sure someone would like it, but not me. What if you buy custom cables, would the plug lights be blocked by black plug plug one instead of clear?
The bad news is that it looks
The bad news is that it looks like it, might get some edge glow at most. The good news is that it will block the light … 🙂
Yo dawg, we put rgb inside
Yo dawg, we put rgb inside your rgb’s, so you can… < insert joke here>
