Great PSU

paul m., Newegg
7 February 2015
  • Pros: Has worked fine, powering my PC for almost a year
  • Cons: The fan started whining and grinding after a month so I had to block it and mount an external one on the back of the case. No real biggie though, and doesn't affect performance.

3 years and counting

  • Summary: Glad to see they are still selling PSU for so many years. It just works and works and works...
  • Pros: I made a review over 3 years ago, but I felt I needed to do an update. This Antec unit has run wonderfully this past 3 years, and I just recently in the past 2 months added a r9 280x and a FX 8350, which are of no issue for this power supply.
  • Cons: none

2 years and chugging along

  • Summary: let me tell a little about my self first I build pc systems as a part time job and as a hobby, when I review a pc component I typically wait 1-2 years before reviewing so I know the parts have longevity as well as performance, this little powersupply has both.

Very good for the price

Alek B., Newegg

  • Summary: Other then that this unit is built quite well. Goes in, starts up out of box, without any problems so far. I would recommend this unit to someone who needs a new PSU for their hardware, but I would not suggest it to a heavy gamer.
  • Pros: The power supply is built like a rock. When I received it and picked the package up was surprised by the weight of this thing. It weighs atleast twice as my much as my last unit. - The power supply offers a great amount of connectors for many different hardware configurations. For me, I just conn...
  • Cons: - Not all the cables are sleeved other then the primary ATX cable. - PSU does not provide connectors to control the PSU fan from the motherboard(Not really a con, but something I find useful)

Worked wonderfully, but now it's being returned

Daniel L., Newegg
15 December 2013
  • Summary: I don't really blame Antec. This stuff happens, and admittedly, this is on a computer that is rarely turned off and often used for heavy duty work like gaming + recording + video rendering.
  • Pros: Worked beautifully for 2 1/2 years! I love that the cables are all wrapped up and don't get everywhere. Plenty of sata cords, and I have 3 hard drives and 2 dvd drives!
  • Cons: 2 1/2 years in, thankfully 6 months before the warranty expires, my computer went into a reboot cycle that was not solved by any other trouble shooting -- changing the power supply worked. Antec is supposedly going to exchange it, though.

User Review

Paul S., Newegg
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I would recommend this for the price and the consumption, but for those with smaller cases or want a clean looking setup, go modular.
  • Pros: low power consumption, easy to install w/ multiple placement options for your build. large fan for suitable air flow. 650W gets the job done in most cases.
  • Cons: -for appearances sake, it is green. for those that care. -a little on the noisy side, but nothing to fret about -the reason it loses a star b/c of the cabling. if you have a smaller case, you will have a bit of trouble with all the cables.

Fan Died

Brandon S., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Built a machine with this p/s feb 2012, from the start it always was loud like the fan revving up, and i thought it was defective kinda, but after it booted up, it was whisper quiet, i could barely tell it was running, but kept cool and air-flow was great, so i continued on as of 2 days ago my...
  • Pros: Does what it supposed to do (supply power) Saves Energy (really efficient) Solid Feel and quality components Ran Fairly cool had no issues, good air-flow 3 year parts/labor warranty
  • Cons: *Loud at startup (like a jet engine revving up) *Fan Died after year and a half (working on RMA)
