Is this a quality and reliable psu. Please no biased opinions.
For others reading this topic, the OEM is same (FSP) as previous version.
Also this is the newer version that came out and not the previous one which came with red wires and a HANDLE.

It's OK... Mid grade really. Not the best evga has put out, and definitely not priced low enough to bother considering.
Yeah, I'd say that PSU is pretty good. In the future, you should post this under "Power Supplies."
It isn't pretty good, its pretty bad for how much it costs, its tier 3, its on par with the B1 series. The Evga B2 750 watt psu is cheaper and is much better.
I guess so. I've heard good things about both.
I rather not choose the b2. Atleast the updated g1 is 80 plus hold.
A psu being gold rated doesn't always means its good, the G1 series are a perfect example of this. If you want something gold rated go for the G2 series, they are tier 1, the best of the best.
Ok I'm going to return it and her the g2. 750w. One question I just saw a post and someone was saying they think that the psu is not haswell compatible? What? It is compatible with the 5820k right?
Sorry bro was in a hurry
Also if my total take is around 400w is getting a 650w psu leave me with some extra leeway and do I need more wattage.
