EVGA 430W Power Supply Review
As a company, EVGA was founded in 1999, and is well known in the DIY computer industry for its high performance video cards, motherboards, and other computer components. Recently, EVGA has expanded its product offerings to include power supplies which of course draws our interest to it today. Currently, EVGA has a few lines of power supplies with the majority being some variation on the SuperNOVA name and variously branded “SuperNOVA” or “SUPERNOVA.”
However, today’s EVGA 430W Power Supply (100-W1-0430-KR) is not labeled as part of the SuperNOVA lines and it is the smallest capacity power supply that EVGA offers in conjunction with HEC.
HEC Group (Heirochi Electric Corporation) AKA Compucase Enterprise CO LTD is one of the oldest companies in the consumer SMPS business having been founded in 1979. By 1989 HEC had moved into case production, and then in 1997 it began producing SMPS. Today, HEC is one of the largest manufacturers of SMPS and its products can be found under the HEC brand, the CompuCase brand, and the Cougar brand, all of which are retail arms of HEC. In addition to its own brands, HEC has supplied power supplies in the past for Antec, Thermaltake, Xigmatek, and others. Generally, HEC has been known for its entry to mid-level products, but with the launch of some of its newer lines under the Cougar brand, it has moved into the high end enthusiast realm.
