    Arrow EVGA GQ 650W Review

    We're back at it with EVGA again today. A few weeks back, we tested the brand new GQ 850W unit, and found that it was good. But not every model in every single power supply line is guaranteed to be decent. Let's see if the 650W model stacks up well against big brother.

    Another day, another Evgah.

    EVGA's current lineup btw:

    W1
    B1 (some are called NEXxxx?)
    Supernova GS
    Supernova G1
    Supernova G2
    GQ
    Supernova B2
    Supernova P2
    Supernova PS
    Supernova T2

    And an unrated 400W. At least the letters correspond to something, so I wouldn't say the lineup is as confusing as, say, Corsairs lineup (at least when looking at Newegg).

    Looks good. I'm pretty impressed with the stuff coming out of FSP lately.

    But, prepare for the people for whom any ripple above 15mw is too much to come in and start complaining.

    that being said, the price difference between this and say, the G2 650, or RMx650 isn't a lot. I like that EVGA is offering people choice, but at some point you start offering TOO MUCH choice, and start to turn people off. I think EVGA is starting to get close to that line lol

    Kudos to EVGA&FSP for taking the old Aurum, giving it indy regulation and other upgrades, shaking it up and improving the results. Good to see it achieving 1% voltage regulation, and I agree with cruzinforit's observation, some may find the ripple off-putting. EVGA's spoiling everybody with these 15mV in G2s!

    At the present time, G2 650 costs 90$. ( http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperNOVA...ds=evga+g2+650 )
    I don't see a reason for someone to choose the GQ 650 over the G2 650 for only 10$ less.
    Far worst ripple suppresion plus it's semi-modular instead of fully modular.

    P.S. GQ's price at 80$, is the ideal price that Cyonic 650 should cost in my opinion (maybe 90$ max).

    They didn't even change the protection IC...

    that is to be seen...

    According to the datasheet the Teapo SY are as good as the usual NCC KY and KZE...

    Only the caps on the +12V are a bit better (Teapo SC aren't as good. but there are 4 in parallel)...

    Well, in about ten years we know witch unit lasted longer
    But I doubt that there's a big difference though.

    But I can't see what caps EVGA used in the +12V rail...
    KZE or just KY?

    Be quiet! might not be very happy. In the past EVGA didn't really attack the German market, but if they do Listan might be pissed...
