There aren't many situations where a power supply of more than 100W is needed, and even fewer where 1200W or more is required, but EVGA decided to launch the SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified anyway.
This product is unusual in that, even though it has a huge wattage by default, it can go even higher if owners really succumb to their overclocking craze.
We are referring to the Overclock Mode, which pushes the power output to 1650W with 230VAC input. 100% Japanese capacitors and a durable fan make sure the PSU doesn't die under the stress.
Another asset that overclockers will find convenient is the SuperNOVA enthusiast software control and monitoring software.
The rest of the information in the press release and on the product page
deals with the regular things: cables, energy use, etc.
EVGA claims that the efficiency is of up to 90% under normal loads, and the pending 80Plus Gold certification lends credence to those words.
There are multiple +12V rails for owners to use as well (8, if we're reading things right), but a switch lets one toggle to and from single-rail mode.
Also, the PSU comes with various protections (over voltage, over current, short circuit, etc.).
As for the cables, they are sleeved, many and varied. In addition to the 24-pin ATX and two 8-pin EPS12V power plugs, EVGA implemented three PCI Express connectors (6-pin), one 16x 6+2-pin PCI Express plug, 12 sata cables, 8 MOLEX cables and two Floppy cables.
Finally, the EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified Power Supply is modular, allowing owners to only use what cables they need, to avoid cluttering the inside of a desktop case with wires.
is the price that gamers and overclockers have to be willing to pay for the PC components. That's around 358 Euro, give or take, or so exchange rates say.
