Great Power Supply for the Money

Caleb S., Newegg
7 days ago
  • Summary: I'm about 3 months in on this power supply and everything is running smoothly. I was impressed with how sturdy this thing felt when I got it. I had one 12v connector come apart(easily repairable), but otherwise like the feel of the connectors and wires. Power consumption seems right where it should be. I highly recommend this PSU.
  • Pros: Affordable. Good connectors and length of wires. This thing is build very solid. Quiet fan and seems to handle pet hair and dust well in comparison to some of the other PSUs I've ran in a 24/7/365 machine.
  • Cons: A lot of wire. That's probably more of a Pro than a Con but I used this on an ITX build and it's like a jungle gym in there even with a lot of cable management.

Quality You Can Feel

Zachary H., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: As many other reviewers have said, it doesn't include a power cord. I knew this when I purchased it as it says so right in the product description. I have several extra power cords around the house, so this was a non-issue for me.
  • Pros: The construction of this PSU is top-notch. You can tell just by holding it that it is not made of cheap, second-rate materials and after installing it I can say that this unit runs like a champ. Great for small media PC or home server like mine that isn't going to need a lot of juice.
  • Cons: Not modular, but I knew that going into it. Unit is somewhat heavier than I expected, which is both a pro and a con I guess.

Solid.

Matt D., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Pros: Lowest 80Plus power supply I could find. No point in getting a 500W supply for a 10W CPU. 3 HDDs, one SSD, and one J2900 CPU idling at 30W.
  • Cons: None.

Good for the Price

Anonymous, Newegg
26 December 2014
  • Summary: If you are using this in a Mini-ITX or Micro ATX build, there are ALOT of wires. Make sure you have a few cable ties on you. My brother got this as a Christmas gift, and I put this in his Inspiron 580 with a GTX 750. Works great!
  • Pros: -Quiet fan -Heavy -Thin Wires -Lots of SATA connectors
  • Cons: -No sound when connectors are in place. I am use to a click.

Best Available Power Supplies

James, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: To anyone familiar with building computers the name Antec stands out for high quality power supplies. Practically dead silent they will consistently out perform other power supplies. When those others finally die the Antec will still be working. Antec power supplies are made in the older fashion with and exhaust fan at the rear of the case. One downside is the fact that they DO NOT supply you with a power chord.

User Review

David F., Newegg
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I am surprised at the amount of reviewers complaining about the missing power cable when it states in the overview of the product that its not included to help relieve the impact on the environment. Just make sure to pick one up or find one lying around the house.
  • Pros: Perfect power supply for my gaming build. Didn't need too much power as I'm not running SLI. Super Quiet as well.
  • Cons: None.

Power Cord

Konstantin K., Newegg
8 December 2014
  • Summary: Include a power cord and stop pulling that green stuff.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: How is it possible;e to ship a power supply without a power cord. There is many variations of power cords out there and they are asking you to reuse your old power cord. What if this is a new build like it is in my case????? Extremely disappointed.

Good exterior design, not much else.

BRADEN B., Newegg
2 December 2014
  • Pros: This case has a great exterior design, and the ability to house a full ATX motherboard is a plus. Also has a good amount of vents and fan mounting points for good air circulation.
  • Cons: - The front panel switch/led cables are too short. The cables were stressed when I had my full ATX board inside, and almost didn't even make it. - The provided power supply did give off a slightly 'burning' smell after a few weeks of ownership, so I replaced it. - If you're putting in a large PCI-e video card, be sure the power supply you're using and the video card length will fit. With larger a larger PSU, you won't have enough room for a full-sized GPU.

I like it. Used for years.

john h., Newegg
28 November 2014
  • Summary: Make sure it has enough SATA power connections
  • Pros: Probably have put at least 15-20 of these in service over the past 3-5 years. Only one has failed. 380 watts has been enough (without pushing) for ALL my applications including servers. Very quiet-at least when is is cool-I have not run at high temps. Unless you are gamer or other user that runs multiple high end video cards and other stuff at the same time 380 watts is fine, believe. If you are still unsure, Google 110v Watt meter and purchase and find out for your s...
  • Cons: No power cord- Not a biggie for me. At little pricey?

The best PSU for budget builds - and not even close

Michael Marsh "zybysky", Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: Excellent hard drive for a budget build. As long as you're not looking to install an exotic video card or overclock the latest processor, this is a more than capable PSU for your build. If you're building a home office / college computer, this is an excellent choice. Do not skimp on power supplies - and I don't mean regarding the wattage. Although this is a relatively low wattage compared to what's out in the market, it is solidly built by a reputable company.
