Summary: I would recommend buying this. Personally I wish they would change the way the cable ran into each of the power SATA connectors so instead of going through the connector, the connectors would branch off. This would make installation in tight spaces easier.
Pros: Was easy to install. Has everything you can need for a basic/gaming setup.
Cons: Cables are hard to bend because of the outside sheathing. It is possible to get cables to bend but it risks ruining the cables. SATA power cables are hard to install in a case with multiple hard drives grouped next to each other due to the previous problem.
Summary: As far as I am concerned, Antec now needs to compete before rebate against other products after rebate, which considering Antec raises their prices so they can afford to have frequent rebates is a big disadvantage for them.
Pros: Good product even if it cost too much.
Cons: No rebate delivered :-| This is the first time I've ever been stiffed on a rebate. No reply to phone messages left with the Antec rebate department. No reply to inquires sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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...
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.
