The 850W power supply of the GQ series is designed for computer sets requiring reliability and continuous operation. The EVGA 850 GQ's lifetime reaches up to 100,000hrs, and the 80 Plus certification speaks for its high efficiency. It supports multiple graphics cards and provides trouble-free +DC-DC conversion.
The power supply unit features the EVGA ECO mode, thanks to which it will remain utterly silent at low to medium load. As long as it is not necessary, the 135mm fan does not turn on, providing completely silent operation. High-quality Japanese capacitors have been installed to further increase the reliability and the power of the unit.
The power supply uses modular cabling and therefore some cables can be removed during installation to achieve better airflow. It also offers support for the NVIDIA SLI and the AMD CrossFire technologies enabling to add multiple graphics cards and obtain even better performance. The design of the unit contributes to a nearly impeccable +DC-DC conversion, which further optimises the efficiency of the current and impedance loss reduction.
The Gold Series meets one of the highest efficiency standards of the PlugLoadSolutions certification organisation (80 PLUS). The 80 Plus Gold certification guarantees that the power supply unit uses energy efficiently without wasting, and that it does not produce excessive heat. At normal load, its efficiency reaches 92% or more. For protection against short circuit, overvoltage, or overload there are several protection circuits.
