Antec TruePower Classic 750W Power Supply Review
8 July 2014
Summary: The Antec TP-750C is one of a long list of
power supplies we have reviewed. However, it is, surprisingly, one of the lower powered models that we have seen over the years. Indeed, the last unit from Antec that we saw at or near this power level was way back in 2009! As this is the first of the TruePower Classic power supplies we have seen and the last 750 watt unit we have seen from Antec was so long ago we don't have a good bead on how this product line performs...
Summary: Antec comes to us today with a mid-level 750 watt enthusiast computer power supply that touts Gold efficiency. This PSU is somewhat light on marketing and heavy on features such as Japanese capacitors, "unprecedented tight voltage regulation," and low ripple and noise to "maximize your system's performance.
Excerpt: It's been quite a few years now since Antec debuted the venerable Truepower series of power supplies. One of the few consumer grade units to offer independent voltage regulation back in the day, they were hot sellers for Antec for years. Today, I'm looking at the Truepower Classic 750W, which promises a freshly updated take on the series.
Summary: Antec and Seasonic make a good team, and the TP-750C is great proof. Although ripple suppression didn't meet my expectations since all Seasonic units are usually ripple-proof, this PSU still performed pretty well by achieving high efficiency throughout its entire load range and tight voltage regulation on all rails, and it easily managed to deliver 110% of its maximum-rated capacity at a very high operating temperature.
Pros: Delivered full power at 45°C, Tight voltage regulation on all rails, Efficient, High build quality, Full set of protections, Hold-up time was in spec, Five year warranty, Six PCIe connectors along with a lot of peripheral connectors
Cons: Ripple suppression wasn't up to Seasonic standards (but it can in no way be called bad), Noisy operation at high loads
