EVGA has announced a fully modular power supply which includes a monitoring software and overclocking mode.

The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified power supply allows users to switch between single or multiple 12V rails, as well as access to the exclusive SuperNOVA software, which lets users make voltage and fan adjustments. Not only that, the power supply is also capable of delivering up to 1650W of power output when using Overclock Mode, but this requires 230 volts of AC power.

The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified power supply includes the following individually sleeved cables:

  • 1x 24pin ATX
  • 2x 8pin EPS12V
  • 3x 6pin PCIe
  • 12x SATA
  • 8x Molex

    3x 6 pin PCIe? That has to be a typo?

    It's the 2x floppy connectors that make this PSU a must-have.

    A power supply costing as much as an average PC... holy jesus!

    Isn't it much more cost effective to use two 750W PSUs?

    So....this is basicaly a higher wattage version of the AX1200i that has all those cool features and way more expensive because of the extra 300w.

    Wow, OCing has now came to PSUs.

    Being able to choose betwenn single or multiple 12V rails is a good feature though. Its like hitting two birds with one stone.

    If you look at the product page it has to be a typo. This thing would be for someone running quad sli with a serious amount of overclocking.

    cmcghee3583x 6 pin PCIe has to be a typo?


    apparently the article is missing the 16x 6+2 pci-e connectors so no issue.

    giovanni86If you look at the product page it has to be a typo.

    Product images show 8x 8-pin PCIe power connectors on the PSU, maybe someone misread the '8' as '3' or only looked at the middle-row of modular connectors.

    Technically it isn't a typo - the author left out some crucial information.

    There are 16x 6+2 pin PCIe power cables, along with 3x 6 pin PCIe power cables.

    I just can say WOW to the price and features, but.... Every generation technology becomes more efficient and power friendly. When the GXT480 came out, you need at least a 1000W PSU to run it 2 way SLI. But by now with a good branded PSU of about 750W is enough for running GTX680 2 Way SLI. So wheres the point of launching "bigger" PSUs? I mean, I would better spend my money in a 750W platinum branded PSU than 1500w Gold PSU.

    Seems like total overkill. I guess there might be some use if you're running quad SLI with the most power-hungry video card available and overclocking them to the extreme. In that case, you're already spending a few grand on the video cards alone, so what's another $450.

    It's not a typo it has it in the specs list as only having 3x 6 pins, but it can have 16x 6+2 pin PCIe.
