8 Years old, and still blazing.

Joe B., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Summary: Antec for life.
  • Pros: I write this review just 2 weeks shy of my PSUs 8th birthday. With 95% up time, and at least 70% of that being under load... that's a heck of a lot of hours on this beast, and it's still kicking booty and taking names.
  • Cons: They don't sell it anymore. It's big and I remember needing a shoe horn and a mallet to cram it into place.

Going on 8 years

Brady D., Newegg
27 November 2015
  • Summary: At this rate it'll out outlast me.
  • Pros: This PSU continues to be a champion. I purchased it in 2008 and I'm still using it. It's run everything I've thrown at it and had extra to spare. On this alone, I will be buying another Antec PSU without blinking.
  • Cons: It has so many cables that I didn't need to use about 30% of them. I wish I could have removed them to tidy up my case.

OK Overall

Bryan S., Newegg
27 June 2014
  • Summary: I would of liked more SATA power connectors instead of the excessive amount of molex connectors.
  • Pros: Good variety of cables, great power supply. Never had power related issues.
  • Cons: SATA Power connectors are not of good quality. I've had 3 connectors break on the top side from very minimal contact. I never used excessive force especially after my first one broke and they just keep breaking.

Solid PSU

Ryan H., Newegg
11 December 2012
  • Summary: Antec makes the very best PSUs.
  • Pros: This power supply gave me solid power for 3 years and 8 months, then it finally died. Just put in for an RMA replacement. It has a 5 year warranty so I'm expecting to get a new one back.
  • Cons: Finally died, but under warranty. Score.

Good power when it works

Joseph H., Newegg
24 August 2012
  • Summary: I have always thought highly of Antec, but after the mess that I went through with troubleshooting and replacement of many parts due to PS failure, I am looking at other options for future customers.
  • Pros: It worked for a year before any problems. Support is fast and friendly
  • Cons: I was sent a new one after it went out on the 2nd year of use, and a year later it went out again. Each time it went out it caused many other problems and parts to be replaced, and I junked it earlier this year rather than bother with trying a new one.

Has been a gaming work horse

John D., Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: After four years of great service, I think this PSU has finally had it. As of June/2012, I have been experiencing power issues where the PC will not load past POST and will fail to supply power to one of my graphics cards. Sometimes there does not appear to be an issue and sometimes there is.
  • Pros: Has been steady and reliable since I built my gaming PC in 2008. While I did experience some issues when playing around with over-clocking, which I dont really do anymore, when I left things at stock settings, I NEVER had an issue. My system is older and has only recieved upgrades to the CPU, MB ...
  • Cons: Cables can be in issue in a full tower.
