Default EVGA NEX 750G @ TPU

Clickie, really sad stuff (full NCC Aurum pushed beyond its means).


Nice work Crmaris!

I don't think I'd buy one though, these are such ridiculous products, ironic even... you have the full modularity, and then the stupidly good connectivity/cabling, etc.. it looks like a quality, high end product... and then you open it and it's a FSP Aurum!!.. I mean, that's proper irony if you ask me.

Price will probably drop after the holidays; they won't drop the price during the Christmas frenzy. Of course, the actions of EVGA management are, as always, inscrutable.

Some apparently have the misconception, that just because it's Gold certified, it must be high-end. Aurum's vreg/ripple results clearly show it's false. I'd rather have some decent Bronze indy/DC-DC regulated unit than this.

Situation here in Germany:
Average unit with decent effiency for an average price. If 700 watt are enough for your rig, you can save 10+ bucks buying the FSP Aurum or the be quiet! E9. It's a decent units for fans of the EVGA-brand.

if I were to buy an Aurum/CM based unit I'd opt for NEX over the E9 (NCC vs CapXon) or FSP Aurum (poor cabling/connectivity)... but honestly I wouldn't even consider an Aurum/CM based unit above 450W.

The be quiet! E9 are quite silent, even "the big ones". For me, that's more important than the caps.
If a cheap 700W unit fails after 5 years of service in my computer I don't care.

Why do the PSU manufacturers always save a buck on the fan?! Why did EVGA choose this crappy Yate Loon fan over an FDB bearing Protechnic one FSP likes to use sometimes??
And of course it has to be a fan that's pretty good for a 1200W+ unit. And has WATTAGE...
You don't need of course but why not use this loud monster instead of a decent one...
Strange that some other companys do put a 0,45A fan in a ~700W unit and not a 0,7A jet engine that rotates with a thousand RPM, even when the PSU has nothing to do...

Sorry, guys, but that's pretty damn loud! Unneccessary loud...

Oh and for the jap cap friends:
I've got an E5 her. I have recaped it and it still doesn't work. I'd say it didn't fail due to bad caps, even though it uses capxon...
Oh and the fan is still good. ANd yes it is an FDB one from Protechnic...

@Cmaris,

That fan isn't a standard D14BH-12. That's something custom used by EVGA.
The D14BH-12 has broader blades with a deeper curve. Fewer of them as well (Only 7.)
