EVGA have just introduced their B3 line of power supplies that are the successor to their incredibly popular and reliable B2 series.
Quite a few changes with the B3, the first thing to notice is that they are now fully modular instead of the semi-modular design of the B2. While a Bronze rated PSU is somewhat entry-level by today’s standards, the B3, under typical loads, boasts an 88% efficiency rating with less than 2% ripple thanks to the use of new Japanese capacitors.
EVGA have further reduced the noise and life-span of by using a Hydraulic Dynamic Bearing Fan and have also implemented their ECO mode for completely silent operations and low to medium loads.
Despite all of the new and improved features of the B3, EVGA has managed to reduce the overall size of each unit with the 450W, 550W, and 650W all coming in at 150mm while the 750W and 850W models are only 160mm.
In terms of cost, there isn’t anything concrete for the EU market but with the price ranging $49 -$99 they are quite competitively priced.
