Excerpt: I have had the power supply a little over a month and so far it has done its job. Its quite and a large opening to push the hot air out of the computer. Its better than the one that came with the computer. Its funny that I had two HP pc and both had the power supply replaced with a much better one. This current pc, I had it for about 3 yrs. The tech guy who replaced was well info about power supplies and showed me what will work for me.
Excerpt: Perfect replacement supply for PC's needing more power to their system; at least up to 450 Watts. Price is great and the power efficiency works well with other power saving devices (like surge protectors with master outlets). Barely a noise made; unit is easy to install and set up (for an intermediate level PC owner/installer).
Summary: This is a well built entry level PS with some extra comonents that most others don't have. 81-85% rating and two 12v rails, not bad. If you can afford a 80+ bronze or higher, go that route. If you're on a budget , this is a good option.
Summary: Antec has been a great company in the past I hope their RMA is willing to replace the power supply with a non lemon one if not it will be the last one I buy from them
Pros: Worked great on a machine the consumes around 310W ran quiet didnt put out that much heat it was a very nice power supply ran my PC well for exactly 6 months
Cons: Started having issues at the 6 month mark I would have to bleed the charge off the caps unplug plug back in and wait 20 minutes for the caps to charge say a quick prayer to Saint Vidicon and hope that Finangle wouldn't fight it on turning on (in other words the caps aren't charging correctly)
