I bought it to replace an Antec SmartPower 450 which came in the Antec Sonata case I used to build the PC in Apr '04.. It's been running 24/7 for 5.5 years.
* Adequate to power any pc/ video card combo as long as you don't have 2 video cards
* Has modular wiring.. I personally don't particularly care for this, but will admit it's convenient
* High efficiency and rated at 550w continuous output with very good current ratings as well
* 3 Yr parts/labor warranty
* good overvoltage/overcurrent protection so if it fails it doesn't cook your mobo on the way out.. ;)
* Plenty of plug options including multiple SATA, old 4pin molex, and old floppy type.. had at least 3 options for PCIe
* Cables are sheathed
* Very quiet.. softer than even the stock cpu cooler fan. (and this is in an Antec Sonata case which is very quiet anyway)
My criticizms are very minor..
* The cables are a bit stiff at the ends where the plug is located. This makes it hard if you have to turn it at the connect, say for a sata drive facing the side
* Had to fool with a rebate instead of just cheaper price :)
Any unit can have early failures, but this is rated at >100,000 hours mtbf which is excellent. Antec has always been a company I've had pleasant experiences with.
(edit: Update 8/11: The unit is still working fine. As it turns out it is in a somewhat dusty environment. It has shown no problems of any type, nor does it overheat.Read more ›
I just built a machine for my brother using this power-supply, and when I saw all the reviews saying it was noisy, I thought "what are they talking about???" So to be fair, I turned around to turn on my brother's machine (it's sitting on the desktop right behind my head as I type this), because I wanted to hear it run, and objectively re-evaluate whether or not it seemed noisy at all:
Only when I went to power it up it was already on. I just couldn't hear it. And that's NOT what I expected to be telling you at this point! So whatever issues other people have with this thing being noisy, I really can't understand. Maybe they're overclocking and their CPU fan is going nuts or something. Makes no sense at all to me otherwise.
Moving right along: The power supply is not entirely modular, as noted in some other reviews, but the non-modular cables are required for your motherboard anyway. If I had one gripe about this supply, it's that the cables that are provided did not have enough cable between successive connectors to enable me to get everything in my rig powered up with only one of them, something that would have been theoretically possible had they been a little longer runs--but I can't say that other power supplies are any different in that regard, and I was able to easily finish by simply using another cable.
Beyond that, I can't say enough about this power supply. It's quiet as can be (literally inaudible in the machine right behind me, I'm still shaking my head about that one), it provides up to 550W (which works nicely with Core i3/i5/i7 processors which recommend at least 450W, by the way), and it has wide selection of extra modular cables to power about anything you could possibly want to put inside your case. As a bonus it's VERY competitively priced and Antec has a great reputation with power supplies. In short, I highly recommend this thing.
Everything is installed and SATA adapters have been added to the older plugs. But this power supply fan is noisy. The power supply that came w/ my Dell was dead silent (yes fan works). So I'll be looking for a quiter power supply.
its an antec basiq so its got only 1 fan, but the cables are long enough to reach all the components in the pc.
only con is that the one fan is significantly noisy, so in a quiet surrounding you can clearly hear it.
good thing is that it does the job well. thats what counts for me.
