EVGA SuperNova P2 1200W ReviewManufacturer: EVGA

EVGA mostly focuses on high-end PSUs at the moment, which is lucky for us as we could include the SuperNova P2 1200W in this round-up. For a brand that’s often positioned at the premium side of things, it’s surprisingly affordable; you can get one for £185 on these shores, which isn't bad for an 80 Plus Platinum certified PSU with a 1,200 watt rating.

At 200mm, the SuperNova P2 is not the tiniest of models, but the 2.2kg weight is rather modest. It’s cooled by a temperature controlled 140mm fan and comes with five Molex and 12 SATA connectors. The cables are all pretty long, with the PEG cables in particular coming in at a surprising 91cm. Oddly, there are six 6/8-pin PEG connectors and one pair of plain 6-pin types. This is hardly something to quibble over, but a surprising choice nonetheless.
The SuperNova’s performance is excellent, delivering its rated power without breaking a sweat or dropping a voltage below 12V, coming in at 91.29 percent efficiency and having a nice low ripple of 26.8 mVpp under maximum load. Finally, being semi-passive, it’s dead silent all the way up to 500 watts, so we have very few complaints about this excellent power supply overall.
