    Quick and to the point. I appreciate it. The EVGA Supernova 550 G2 it is! Unless anyone else has a better suggestion?

    How would your suggestion stack up against the EVGA Supernova 550 G2? I'd be more inclined to go with a jonnyGURU reviewed product than one that isn't. Unless of course the consensus is that it's better. Thank you for your time.

    I do, from time to time, check those reviews out. I was more interested in the "Perfect 10/10 Score from JonnyGURU" for this particular product though. I appreciate your time and everyone else's on this decision. Off to make that purchase and complete (for now) this build!

    Well what is better, the EVGA has lower ripple, but it needs capacitors in the cables for that. Those capacitors make the cables more stiff and bigger, difference in ripple doesn't make a difference in real life. The Enermax also has the better fan bearing, you can hear the fan in the G2 clicking, I don't thing you can hear the mag-lev fan from Enermax.

    But yeah I think that most people agree with you, but for some people the Enermax is the better one and it's cheaper.

    Unless you care about customer support and warranty aswell.

    5yrs on the Enermax, 7 years on the EVGA. EVGA on top of that is better than any other company I've dealt with, have super friendly support that actually tries to help you and is very pro-customer in general. At least the German support is

    Those made by Aris Mpitziopoulos: with the other ones YMMV.

    Also it has better voltage regulation, especialy in 3.3V rail where in the enermax is a bit loose.

    Perfect example of, in such an instance, a tier list would never work. Which one is better varies depending on his specific needs.
