The GX II Pro units are the same as the GX II units but this time include all Japanese capacitors.

It's a decent Enhance unit but with an outdated design to it, so it struggles heavily with...

The 4+4pin is somewhat more understandable as some boards in the mid-range still come out with a single 4pin connection.

It's most likely one of the coils in the primary filtering stage making the noise. Especially if it's just once and loud.

This can happen with PSUs depending on the environment.

More often than not, when a unit is pulled from an existing machine, it only has enough cables for that machine.

I've pulled a number of decent Hipro units from HP machines that only had a one or...

It's a great unit but my only question is why EVGA chose to go with the 2BB over the FDB in these units.
It makes less sense on the P2's but Superflower includes them with their units and it...

I'm guessing you don't understand the 6+2pin PCIe cables that come on modern power supplies?

You're supposed to clip the extra 2pin connector onto the side of the 6pin cable to make it an 8pin...

I'd have probably given them a nick for the documentation and for the software but when those are your gripes they're doing something right in my book.
