    Default EVGA B5

    Anyone know anything about this guy yet or if it's any good? I've been looking for a review but haven't found one. Really hoping this is gonna bring the line back to a B2 level of quality. Jonny might we see a review from you anytime soon?

    A joke.

    I lost interest in keeping track of EVGA PSU's when they stopped using Superflower and started using "lowest bidder" and introduced 10 new lines for each 80 PLUS level.

    The EVGA B2 series was never interesting IMO. It was only available in 750W and 850W. So it's a power supply for an extreme high-end PC, because only those need such a high wattages. But the EVGA B2 isn't highend at all, it was just mainstream. That's why it had competition from other mainstream and high-end ~450W PSU's which in many cases had a better performance/quality rating.

    Right but it was a great quality mainstream contender that could often be found on sale for around $70 and sometimes closer to $50. I got mine for $40 after MIR. I just want something I can reccomend to people that doesn't break the bank but also doesn't sacrifice a whole lot in terms of quality, preferably with 2x EPS connectors and that's hard to find $100 currently.
