    This looks remarkably like the Superflower PSU's that were out several years ago. In respect to the connector types and the LED effect...

    That's because EVGA PSU's are made by Superflower.

    It's actually funny. New pc-cases have nowadays a cover for the PSU and HDD, so you don't see them. And then a PSU manufacturer puts leds inside. Do I miss something. :-/

    Oh deep joy, they have incorporated the worst thing from the Superflower Leadex series that they are based on, bright white led's that can't be turned off. What the hell is it these days that every manufacturer has to put led's or RGB's on everything. It's for a computer not a arcade machine!!

    Agreed - EVGA just lost a LOT of respect from me on this... At least they could have done the smart thing and made them RGB - Of all the different LED options, a harsh, bright, blinding white light is the last one I'd go for. That just means it spoils everything else in my case!!!

    Both play games - What's the difference?

    I love LED stuff... but I like to choose what is LED and in which colour.
    I like my kit to look like an 80s TV computer, rather than everything glowing ambiently like modern day sci-fi.
    I also require the option to turn it all OFF!!

    80 PLUS Gold certified, and then blow that efficiency on lighting up a box that sits under a desk like a Christmas tree - yay! Forget having a fancy monitor, just dump the PC straight in its place gaze at it instead, because that's what apparently we like to do...

    Next on the list of counterintuative features add ambient spaceship engine noises to silent PSUs. It should sound like something when you turn on your PC and not just coil whine right?

    Guys, guys, guys. It's only the L series PSU's that's getting the "gamer LED upgrade"s

    Also, the SuperFlower PSU's DO actually have a lil switch to turn off the super mega gaming LED's

    No they don't. They have been promising a switch for the past couple of years but they still haven't delivered on that promise yet. The only switch on the Superflower psu's apart from the on/off power switch is the switch that lets you choose between auto and eco fan modes.

    I can see EVGA replacing the G2 series with these. Why have a pair of psu's where the only difference is one has led's and the other doesn't yet both are based on the same platform. Maybe they will see if these sell well first and then if they do the G2 series get's replaced followed by the P2 and T2 models also being replaced by the Superflower clones at a later date.

    Your car must look really boring... and your house probably has plain curtains... and I bet you wear single colour ties to work...

    Cheaper to fit Corsair SP fans, surely?

    As mentioned above - I'm looking at a SuperFlower SF-1200F14MP right now and there ain't no magic switch!!
