I know several of their PSs are Seasonic rebrands, but not sure about this particular one. With that said, with the 10 year warranty and good user reviews I'm willing to give it a shot. EVGA hasn't let me down yet. I've been using the 1300w G2 for 5 years or so now.Seems like a g00d deal. Seasonic platform?
Bleh, I tried to do the bundle thing right after he posted the deal, assuming that was the only way to get one but even then, just the auto notify button. Ah well, I do not need another power supply. Just wanted to see how much shipping would be...and taxes...and how long it would take to get here.Looks like it's out of stock now.
Got my order In early this morning. $214.99 after tax with free ground ups shipping. I should have posted as soon as I saw itBleh, I tried to do the bundle thing right after he posted the deal, assuming that was the only way to get one but even then, just the auto notify button.

This appears to be correct. FSP is the OEM, at least a few results in an online search lead me to believe that is the caseI'm almost positive these are FSP built. It's been a minute since I researched them (EVGA forums has the info I believe).They are a great deal at only 2 bills. How the hell are you supposed to order them from EVGA!?
What's the difference between the two? I feel blind . Tempted to get one but I really shouldn't...Back in stock!
The P2 is on sale as well for $30 more...
There is no sense in paying $100 more for a used PSU. You get a 10 year warranty with these.1600 P2 is Super Flower, as well. Very nice deal.
Just FYI - Corsair AX1600i units can be had used for around $300 if you're looking to level up even further. They're virtually indestructible PSUs so used is new. I'd buy the 1600 P2 but I already have 2x 1600i's stocked up due to the miner meltdown lol. I gotta stop!
I would say no.Now, I'm second guessing the 1600 P+. For some reason I thought the OEM was Super Flower for it. It even has that "rough" look of the G2, P2 and T2 variants. For $30 more, I can get the P2 and send back the P+ that already shipped for about $20 in postage. Is it worth the $50 swap? The plan is for a 13900K and 4090.
FSP has been making power supplies for oems for ages now and probably build them to whatever spec they are told to, from 'burn your house down crap', to 'needs to be stable enough to detect muons' (okay, so that part is probably an exaggeration, but you get my point ).FSP isn't as consistent in quality, though at this high of a price/performance level maybe the differences are less significant. FSP has made both good and bad units.
Seems hard to find many reviews on the P+ at all- having trouble finding any on hardware review sites. Only retailers- and those, as always, vary from "this unit caught fire and so did the replacement, 1 star" to "this unit handled multiple 3090s just fine"...
Pretty sure EVGA is clearing these out to make room for ones with 12-pin connectors for NV cards since that is what they mainly sell.Are these being sold at a big discount because they are gonna have a new rail for higher watt GPUs?
I know you can use those adapters but I'd rather have a native 12 pin.
