Introduction and Features
Plenty of power with excellent performance at a great price!
EVGA has one of the largest selections of PC power supplies on the market, which currently range from 400W all the way up to 1600W. The G1 Series has been around for several years and continues to be very popular. The latest iterations adds a plus + to the name along with several enhancements. We will be taking a detailed look at the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W G1+ power supply in this review.
The new G1+ lineup includes four models: 650W, 750W, 850W and 1000W. They are all 80 Plus Gold certified, are fully modular, and are built with high-quality components like 100% Japanese made capacitors and a very quiet Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) fan. Some of the latest G1+ enhancements include:
• 100% Japanese made capacitors
• Quiet 135mm FDB fan (up to 20% quieter)
• Very tight +12V load regulation
• Up to 20mm shorter chassis
• Cleaner internal layout for increased airflow
• 10-Year warranty
The G1+ Series chassis is up to 20mm shorter than earlier G1 models (20mm for the 1000/850 G1+ and 10mm for the 750/650 G1+). They all feature a single +12V rail with even tighter load regulation (<1%) and are protected by a full suite of heavy duty safety circuits (OVP, UVP, OCP, OPP, SCP, and OTP). And last but not least you can find the 1000W model selling for $129.99 USD (newegg.com October 2018).

Here is what EVGA has to say about the SuperNOVA G1+ power supply line:
“Launched in May 2014, the EVGA SuperNOVA G1 power supplies have been among the longest-lasting and best-performing power supplies on the market. Despite only a few changes over the years, it’s only fitting that these are due for an upgrade. Enter the G1+, the new and improved fully-modular power supply line-up from EVGA with 80+ Gold Efficiency rating.
Compared to the EVGA SuperNOVA G1 power supplies, the G1+ are up to 20mm shorter, feature 100% Japanese capacitors, are up to 20% quieter, have much tighter 12V load regulation, and have a superior fluid-dynamic bearing fan. Combining a full set of current, voltage, and temperature protections with EVGA’s World Leading 10-Year Warranty, the EVGA SuperNOVA G1+ power supplies set the new Gold standard for performance and values.”
