I own 3 of the EVGA Supernova 850 G2 power supplies with LOTS AND LOTS of extra modular cables 😊. I didn't know that they were legendary, heh. The specs on the side of the PSU are the same as the G6 so I expect that the main difference is the efficiency. I turned on ECO mode and I doubt the fan ever spins.

The biggest improvement is they got rid of the green chrome fan grill from the G5 series.

If it's as reliable as the G2, G3 and G5 series, I look forward to building a lot of PCs with them.

It would be nice if they stepped up their game in cheaper non-modular models, they are significantly lower quality.

Why is your noise measurement so different from what EVGA posts on its website? Are these measurements carried out with ECO mode enabled?

Just picked up a EVGA G1+ 850 W 80+ Gold.
If anything goes wrong I know that I can count on EVGA's
excellent service.
