Quiet, basic upgrade for gaming video card

Michael J., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I hate noisy power supplies. This one is very quiet.
  • Pros: I have purchased a few of these power supplies over the years to replace the standard 300 or 350 watt power supplies that often come with prebuilt computers that use only the onboard video. Because I am into gaming, I need a stronger power supply to support the addition of a video card. I also ad...
  • Cons: This is a basic looking power supply... I don't mind that. but, if you want one that looks "cool" or "hot" or whatever with glowing lights and such... this one is not snazzy like that. I'm not into what my computer looks like, but some people are. I will say, though, that I do like the LED's that...

No amount of hardware repair experience will prepare you for the magic and wizardry of Antec Basiq BP350 350 Watt Power Supply.

  • Summary: It works. Kind of. I'm expecting my motherboard to die at some uncertain time, and I'll tell you why: I have a 24-pin motherboard. In all power supplies, it uses 24-pin connectors. There are certain voltages to go along with each non-ground pin. They go to certain places.

BP550 Plus

Michael M., Newegg
14 June 2015
  • Summary: Price is decent for what it does. Hard to find reviews on it. Got the first unit at a Staples when my Kingwin 1400 watts died after 3 years. Staples was the only local shop selling PSU. First unit worked for 2.5 years no problems. Still works.
  • Pros: Second unit i have owned, First one still works after 2.5 years. Second one is just installed 36 hours ago and it works too. 444 watts on the 12v rail. The PCIE 6 pin and 6+2 pin both draw from Rail 3 with 25 amps. Powers a Core i5 760 @ 3.9Ghz = aprox. 125 watts Max load. Powers a EVGA 970 GTX S...
  • Cons: Documentation is lacking on specific details about rail assignments. Cables are a bit stiff, but just a bit. Emailed Antec, they confirmed- Both the 6 pin and 6+2 pin PCIE power cables draw from Rail 3 at 25 amps. U can run a 970 on this PSU.

  • Summary: 4 years later and it's still working perfectly. I'm sure I stress it alot with all the heavy gaming and video rendering I do. I'm currently running an nvidia GTX 760 and AMD Phenom II 1090T. And this power supply has handled all the long gaming sessions without issue.

Antec slipping

Bryan S., Newegg
21 April 2015
  • Pros: Antec is my favorite PS company, but buying the 500W continuous power worked stable for a long time before failure.
  • Cons: The longevity is not there anymore, the powersupply began squealing at a high pitch, it was outside of 3 year warranty to so no support

Great Power Supply

SOREN S., Newegg
18 April 2015
  • Summary: In my business, I have purchased dozens of power supplies from Antec. I have never been disappointed with them.
  • Pros: The partially modular design allows me to keep my cases cleaner by not including cables I don't need.
  • Cons: It would be nice to have the option to purchase this in black instead of silver.
