Final Thoughts and Conclusions
EVGA’s updated SuperNOVA G1+ Series appears to be targeted towards high-end users looking for a good balance of excellent performance with high-quality components at an attractive price. The SuperNOVA 100W G1+ keeps the cost down with 80 Plus Gold efficiency certification (versus paying more for Platinum or Titanium certification) but doesn’t sacrifice much else.
The electrical performance was excellent with tight voltage regulation (±1% on the three primary rails) and very good AC ripple and noise suppression. The SuperNOVA 1000W G1+ features an excellent assortment of fully modular cables with two 4+4 pin CPU and eight 6+2 pin PCI-E connectors. The G1+ is built with high-quality components including a large, quiet cooling fan with a Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) and all Japanese made capacitors. The only thing we could find to possibly complain about was not having a low-power fan-less mode, but I personally prefer having the fan spinning all the time to keep a little cooling air moving.
In addition to excellent performance, the SuperNOVA 1000W G1+ power supply comes with a full suite of protection safety circuits (OVP, UVP, OCP, OPP, SCP, and OTP) and is backed by a 10-year warranty.
The EVGA SuperNOVA G1+ Series power supplies are currently available and selling at very competitive prices. SuperNOVA 1000W G1+ $129.99 at newegg.com (October 2018).
