EVGA 750 B3 PSU Review from Tom's hardware

Another disappointment. It failed the over power protection test like the others.

I guess the OPP issue affects all B3 models. Best to be safe and avoid the whole series.

Ugh. I want to see more great budget units, so seeing what could have been great destroyed by that kind of oversight is disappointing.

Sad part is if they put some effort into the series the performance would make them a great option.

Agreed. So we're stuck with Seasonic's old M12II if you want a fully modular Bronze on a budget. I wish they would release a new model with a single +12V rail, like a Focus Plus Bronze.

Yeah but that really only matters for a kit of sleeved cables which you definitely shouldn't get for a budget PSU. I can't think of a time out side of that which fully would be more helpful than semi modular (like the CXM)

Yeah, but since SuperFlower is the OEM, isn’t it more their problem?

I suppose just using them as 'system power' units would be fine (way better performance than some of the cheaper units, like the BT/BV.
