The B3 is not one of EVGA's good models.


Click on the first link in my signature. It's a must-read. Pick one of the known good models.
However that model is not the worst either.

At least from what I just read, this model has some issues when it comes to OPP, but, overall, it is a pretty decent power supply with a fantastic ripple suppression. Additionally, the EVGA B3 has a LLC Resonant topology and a DC-DC regulation, which is pretty good for a budget power supply.
