I think they are now going to make a 'super tough' version called The Bricked Edition.

EVGA has the Supernova, so did Xion I believe (it was a $60 '1000w' PSU).
Last person I saw use a Xion Supernova it lived up to its name (And I posted about it years ago on here). The only surviving component in his rig after he powered it on was the DVD Drive. Good times.

As for EVGA's PSU's? The first one was overpriced garbage, but the latest iterations are getting better. I just wish their Motherboard team was back, they went to Sapphire...and what have we seen good come of that? Nothing.

My 3-Way SLI board from EVGA lives on and in great working condition in my cousins Rig right now.
Longest Lived board (minus Intel ones). Never a glitch, or issue.
