Pros

Cons

  • As measured at the wall, I'm at 700 watts but the 12 volt rail is only putting out 11.38v. might just be a defect, I'm considering contacting evga to see if it is something they cover in returns, or if this is expected performance from a bronze series psuBlupastu408w

    Great PSU got a nice price

    850w is a bit too much for my rig but at the time of purchasing this was the best deal/value for me. I got a Ryzen 3, GTX 1060, an AIO water cooler, ssd, hdd, 5 fans and some RGB light. So this PSU is way overkill for me but it works beautifully. it supplies more than enough power. Its SUPER quite. Building a near silent system was one of the goals for this build besides having enough power to run modern game at good FPS (not going for 4k. 1080p was the target resolution for this build) So this PSU fits in just right. My old 500w had a terrible coil whine and I got this one while trying to RMA my old one because it got so loud that I was concerned about the rest of the parts if it failed. I ended up getting a replacement but I didn't bother putting it in and kept this PSU in this build. Cable management turned out to be real easy for the most part due to semi modular design. Had to play around with the motherboard power cable a bit to get my side panel on in the back. But that was more on my case then the PSU so no complaints there. Overall It's great.It will provide more then enough power unless you're going for an over the top build. Cable management is a breeze, and it will run near silent. So I would recommend it any day.

    It works as one would expect

    Everything is working as one would expect with a power supply. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and there have been no issues. I did have one problem during installation but not sure if I can actually blame this power supply for it. My old power supply was a modular unit as well. The plugs on the wiring harnesses for the old and new units are the same so I decided to reuse the old harnesses since they were all zip tied in place and neat. That was a mistake. After frying a hard drive and an optical drive I discovered that while the harness PLUGS are the same, the WAY THEY ARE WIRED is not. Apparently there is no standard for this or someone did not follow it if it does exist. If someone didn't follow the standard, I don't know which company it was. Once I used the harnesses that were supplied with the new power supply then all was good. Consider this a cautionary tale from someone who learned the hard way. Even if there is a standard for something, don't assume it was followed...

    A good deal for more power than I need

    I can’t really say much, since i don’t do any hardcore testing of the power supply unit. I can just say that it works well in my updated computer system. No problems so far. I needed a new supply since my new gtx 1080ti graphics card requires a minimum of 600W. I wasn’t planning on getting 850W but saw that this price had dropped to around the prices of those with lesser wattage, so i jumped on it. So now my long term power needs are already solved ahead of time. The texture of the coated metal and the braided cord coverings give this product a high quality feel. And the partial modularity is a handy feature since I only use a handful of the power cords. I only attach the ones that i need and store the rest in the box for when I need them for new additions to my computer. Like i said, i can’t speak to the precise voltages, wattages, efficiency, and other technical details of this product, nor can I speak to its longevity. I just know that it currently works well in my computer. And evga DOES seem to have good warranties.

    Best Bang for your Buck

    This power supply isn't usually what I would normally buy and put into one of my builds but since I'm footing the bill to build my daughter a mid range gaming pc, this works perfectly! It has plenty of power for any future upgrades or add-ons and is mostly modular with the exception of the power cables that you have to use anyway which is one of the reasons this beast is such a great buy. I was also very happy that best buy had the best price on it and it was in stock at my store which was just another reason I jumped on this deal while they had it on sale and I had some points to use towards this purchase to make it just a bit sweeter deal! The only downfall might be the bronze rating which really isn't that big of a deal and I doubt that you will notice the difference between this and the more expensive gold rated power supply in your electric bill. These still have all the bells and whistles of there big brother without as big a hit to your wallet. So if your in the market for a new power supply then you definitely should consider the EVGA BQ models as they are well worth the price!

    Gave my PC new life

    My Windows PC started to give me some problems. One of my hard drives would suddenly disappear - the PC would not recognize it. Took the hard drive out and tested it and ALL was well. No problems detected. Reinstalled it and it worked for a while, then it was gone, PC would not recognize it. I then called and talked to a good friend of mine who also is a whiz at computers. He told me that it is very possible that the power supply is breaking down with too many drives (at least 5 years old). I have an SSD and two HDDs for data. He advised me to separate the drives with their own power leads. Did some research and decided on the EVGA 850 P/S. Main reason was this P/S had modular connectors so I could use one (1) power cable per drive. And add that I am very familiar with EVGA I found a winner. After installing the P/S I have NOT had any more problems. The PC runs better and it is as if it got a new life. I am VERY happy with this P/S and recommend it to everyone.

    Good Power Supply So Far (1 Month)

    Purchased two of these units when they were on a clearance sale... and at $65/ea it was a no brainer for "name brand" 850w bronze. I don't need that much power (was looking for 650), but the 50% overhead is nice. I put one of these in a Ryzen 1600x/b350 build and the other in an old Sandy Bridge i5 build that the power supply died on, the reason I was looking at all. So far both builds have been perfectly happy with the power supplies. Cabling is okay... all black at least. It works for me as the builds they are in are in rack system cases that are hidden in a cabinet. I would have to de-pin and sleeve them if in a case that were visible. Cable lengths are decent, might have problems with a bottom mounted case that was really tall, but should be okay. Overall, they have been chugging along quietly and happily. Fingers crossed that continues to be the case for years to come as I typically only build a new system ever 5 year or so.

    Make absolutely sure when you buy this that the cables are pinned correctly. I have been battling with EVGA for 2 weeks now about this. The power supply I bought was defective, unfortunately I did not in any way inspect it before putting it in my existing working system. I figured, quality control did that for me. Wrong. This garbage was pinned incorrectly, and fried to hdd's and a disk drive instantaneously. The company won't hear anything of it and offers to give me a new unit without so much as looking at what it did, and offering any sort of compensation. I will never buy from EVGA again, and neither should you. Get yourself a Corsair or Rosewill.
