Fits easily in the Corsair 250D, and because it stretches farther than the more compact PSUs it's quite a bit easier to access once it's in the case. It was definitely still a moderate challenge to get all of the cables installed and in the right places since I was replacing a PSU and not building a new machine.
I have owned this power supply for 4 months now and it has never left me down or questioning its performance. Its very high quality and it includes everything you could possibly need in the package. Even presentation was top notch. Packaging was excellent as well. This PSU was recommended by many sites, jonnyguru, tomshardware and so on. Very happy with this PSU and also love the fact that it has a 10 yr warranty on it.

Pros - Fits easily in the Corsair 250D. - The upgrade from 600W to 850W fixed my overclocking issues. - Fan is very quiet, even when not on ECO mode. - The ECO mode option is nice. - Platinum means a slightly lower electric bill. - Supports up to four 6+2pin connections to cards. - Came with a 4 plug sata power cable.
Cons You do not need this if you have one GPU and you are not overclocking. Unless you plan on upgrading, go for something between 550W and 650W.
Summary Fits easily in the Corsair 250D, and because it stretches farther than the more compact PSUs it's quite a bit easier to access once it's in the case. It was definitely still a moderate challenge to get all of the cables installed and in the right places since I was replacing a PSU and not building a new machine.
On my 600W PSU I was having random system power cuts while gaming, while BOINC was running, when trying to push my overclock power limit over 106%, or when asking for more than a 75%+ voltage increase. Upgrading to the 850W solved all of these issues, and I can now overclock with the proper 112% power ceiling and 100%+ voltage allowance.
As far as I can tell the fan adds no noticeable dB to the ambient noise of my case, CPU fans, and pump.
I went from a GOLD to PLATINUM power rating, so the savings will be minimal but the chance that the parts used to build the PSU are better is a nice plus.
I was stuck using a single 8pin to dual 6+2 cable on my last PSU, so being able to use two separate cables makes the build look nicer and the power delivery at least feel like it should be better. (Not sure whether the physics lines up with my opinion on this.)
Summary I have owned this power supply for 4 months now and it has never left me down or questioning its performance. Its very high quality and it includes everything you could possibly need in the package. Even presentation was top notch. Packaging was excellent as well. This PSU was recommended by many sites, jonnyguru, tomshardware and so on. Very happy with this PSU and also love the fact that it has a 10 yr warranty on it.
Pros Silent even with eco mode off, good looking, steady voltage, 10 years warranty, best customer service
Cons Cables are a bit on the short side, need to stretch them at 100% to fully clip them
Summary I didnt keep my computer long with this PSU, but I can tell its a quality unit. Was pushing an overclocked i7 4790k with 1x Strix GTX 980 Ti and it was dead silent. You cant go wrong with this and the G2 as they offer 10 years warranty and its EVGA.
Pros Platinum Efficiency, Great Looks, Quiet, Fully Modular, Performance, Warranty
Cons Regular Price, good deal on sale
Summary The EVGA P2 is certainly well reviewed by the pros including Jonny Guru so you know it performs. It also has EVGA's legendary 10 year warranty and customer service. It's a fully modular power supply but some have complained about the stiffness of the cables. I find they are the same as any other power supply, and if you are going to complain about the stiffness of cables then you should be making custom sleeved cables to exact lengths. The ECO mode certainly works and the fan spins only when necessary prolonging it's life and reducing noise.
The only CON would be it's price. But it's platinum and every high end platinum power supply is on the pricey side. I got it on sale and it was the cheapest Platinum PSU at the time.
I figure any high end power supply is all the same. You plug it in and it works. What more can you ask for? But EVGA has the 10 year warranty and the legendary customer service to back it up. You can't go wrong with that.
Summary It does the job. The texture on it is a lot rougher than it appears in the pictures (like sandpaper) which may clash with the appearance of your other components, but there is really nothing else to complain about.
Pros Tight voltage regulation (as per multiple thorough reviews) Platinum efficiency 10yr warranty
Cons Modular cables were VERY tight in all sockets, including on the power supply end, not just the mainboard end.
Summary Udate: - after discussing the issue with EVGA, they've agreed to send out some replacement modular cables, which should be a better fit. - Upgraded to 4 stars for excellent customer service -redacted shipping complaint so NCIX won't delete my review

Pros Sexy, smart, great personality....everything I want in a woman....err...power supply. It actually works as advertised which is so rare with all this cost cutting and QA issues with other brands. No issues whatsoever. Comes all dressed up head to toe in a dress...err...pouch...dang! T'was love at first sight.....I think I'm gonna ask her out ;D
This is my first EVGA purchase and certainly wont be my last!
Cons She's a little curvy, but I like that. Just make sure it fits in your case.
The paint jobb! Woa! I just want to keep touching it! Feels so good!!! (I put this as a con because its literally making me go insane with lust. Stop it EVGA!....0_0...)
Summary The bombest of all psu's. The only thing that could top this power supply would be to get the same one in a higher wattage...I'm serious. It's that good. Buy it...right now....don't even think abou...no no...step away from the back button....you see that buy button? Click that. Thank me later.
