    Arrow EVGA 750BQ Review

    We all know that the world doesn't revolve around the upper end of the power supply market. Those expensive Platinum and Titanium units may make for great reviews, but they're not what the average Joe looks for when he's just looking to replace a unit that died yesterday and doesn't have a pile of money lying around. EVGA's looking to fix Joe up with this here 750BQ unit, an 80 Plus Bronze model that promises not to break the bank. Let's test it and make sure it won't break anything else.

    Very decent unit afterall. I am impressed with the soldering and the overall fit and finish.

    Thanks for the review.

    The price for the 650W model in Europe is really good (about 60€ without any taxes).

    Well, I said this elsewhere, but atm the GQ 650W is cheaper here than the BQ. 750W BQ and GQ are the same price. So as far as Scandinavia goes, the lower end BQ series is not really a great choice over the big brother. Unless it goes on sale for a rebate, but I rarely see EVGAs on rebate here.

    So what about starting to report even the caps model/series instead of just brands (for us, yours truly caps chatterboxes)? Is that something feasible for you?

    With the Vengeance 650s starting at 67 tax included I don't see any deal with those BQs.

    .
    I don't think his got enough time to dig through every datasheet, not to mention some cap manufacturers are still old style and send you datasheets through the mail .

    Not a bad unit, but if one needs 750w, you can obviously afford a g2/rmx.

    Stefen Payne got it right on though, this is equivalent to the Bosch green series, the g2/rmx are the blue series.

    Yeah, that's not going to happen.

    EVGA has finally gotten rid of those horridly short distances between the SATA and molex connectors!

    It's true that if you need 750W you can afford a G2, but hardware enthusiasts who need 750W probably swap out their hardware every year or two to get the next best thing, meaning good electrical performance to increase longevity of GPUs and stuff is probably not as necessary as you'd think.

    No, the ecaps chatterboxes will do that, if they ever do: I'd like just to not zoom into some photo wondering "WTF this Teapo is?"

    Not at all, first you can't find it anywhere for 60 euro without VAT (or it must be Central or East Europe) and if you could find it, it's still to much. Who is gonna buy a PSU like this anyway and really needs a 650, 750 or 850W PSU? Probably almost no one. Mostly people that would be better of with a high quality PSU from 400/550W are gonna buy this.

    Which units are based off this same platform as the 750W one?
