    Default EVGA 450 BT?

    There seem to be another series that EVGA had release in the low-end segment being sold on Amazon but is not listed on their site.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9X3F8F/

    Does anyone know anything about it other than it most likely group-regulated, has a sleeved bearing fan, and is rated for 30C?

    Edit: It's not the RSY-build EVGA White unit that Jonny mentioned but bronze, right? http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14221

    Found it listed on their own product guide: http://www.evga.com/marketing/produc...017_Q1_PSU.PDF

    It says it has 2 PCI-E connectors.

    Edit: duh, you can see the pictures on Amazon. Two PCI-E connectors over the same cable, useless BTW.

    The new Super Flower platform is only rated at 30°C?

    Hmm...

    Not if they're using 16g wire.

    It's a good way to save costs for a lower end 450W PSU. Much better then just use give it one PEG connector.

    Yuck. Definitely group regulated. 30C? A lot of companies got flak for that temp rating. What does it degrade to at higher temperatures? 100w @50C? At least this model will help get rid of some of the shady models hopefully.

    Corsair and SeaSonic are clearly just riding their reputation while EVGA brings high quality and innovative product. EVGA FTW!

    Price wise, it's competing against the lowest of the low. So just having a rated efficiency from a manufacturer who hasn't been shown to blatantly lie, at that price point, is pretty impressive.

    The 30C rating may not be for output power but efficiency concerns.

    This is certainly "innovative" if you consider the price point they are hitting and what the competition is. The question still remains though; is EVGA's business model sustainable. Especially with these longer warranties.

    Not really. Not at the price point.

    Could be 50 to 100W.

    No. It's output capability. Nobody (80 PLUS) cares what the efficiency is at higher temperatures. They're only testing at 23°C +/- 5°C. Customers can't/won't test their full load efficiency.

    My guess is this PSU can do 350~400W at 50°C.
