    Arrow EVGA 750N1 Review

    Sometimes, it's good to look at power supplies on the lower end of a company's product range. Such is the case here today as we take a good hard look at something clear at the bottom end of EVGA's lineup, known as the N1 series. I have the 750W model in front of me, bought brand new off a store shelf, and we're going to see just what it can do. This is a unit so far down in the bargain bin that it doesn't even bear 80 Plus certification. Let's see what happens.

    You missed some RED FONT for most of the Crossload values that went out of spec.

    IIRC it was 4,75 - 5,25V and 11.4 to 12.6V
    IN the Cold thingy, the 5V Rail is outside the Spec in CL 1 and CL2 its the 5V Rail.
    12V Rail is both times barely in (0,03 and 0,04V respectively).
    In Hot Box, 5V failed both Crossload, 12V CL1 but is still in spec on CL2 with 0,05V...


    PS: Too bad you probably won't do a retest of a Seasonic S12II-Bronze 620W or lower until my birthday...

    Elite? Where?? Oh you mean the GP ones near the Primary Heatsink??
    I'd be OK with 25°C if you would get DC-DC instead. but you get neither...


    And the N-Series isn't available in Germany it seems...

    LOL, what a useless unit. And priced as much as decent 750W ones? RIP

    What was EVGA thinking when they released this unit?
    At least,the 450BV has the niche of being a good power supply for +5V heavy old computers.
    This,I cannot think of any suitable use case at it's current price and capabilities.
    I am where all the magic smoke is.

    Flood the market with so much product that the consumer gets confused and just buys it because it's EVGA.

    What we (the rest of the industry) hopes happens is that they flood the market with so much product that the consumer gets confused, throws their hands up in the air in frustration and buys something other than EVGA because the marketing position makes sense.

    You forgot one Problem in IT:
    Lack of real faith.

    That means that people believe in companies and buy (and recommend) their stuff regardless of Quality or better options from Competition.

    There's a recent review of the M12ii 620 at F14 Lab.
    485mV drop on the 12V rail, ripple and hold up time is good. Fan spins quickly at high load.
    What I'm looking for is protection testing.
