From the Manufacturer
With 380 Watts of continuous power, the Antec EarthWatts EA-380D Green PC Power Supply not only provides a cost-effective power solution, but also helps you save money and protect the environment. The EA-380D features a quiet, 80-millimeter fan, two +12-Volt output circuits for added system stability and safety, Universal AC Input, industrial-grade circuit protection, and a wide variety of connectors for swift customization.
Highly Efficient Power Supply Saves Energy
The Antec EarthWatts EA-380D Green PC Power Supply meets the Bronze level of efficiency from 80 PLUS, the most widely recognized independent standard in power-supply efficiency. With this certification, you can rest assured that the EA-380D is at least 80-percent (or greater) energy efficient, meaning you will save energy while reducing heat output and fan noise.
Help the Environment and Save Money
An Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) ensures a power factor of up to 99-percent, which reduces transmission losses and improves efficiency for power companies, making Active PFC an important feature for the environment. The EA-380D is also EUP compliant for efficiency and low standby power consumption.
Industrial-grade Protection Circuitry Prevents Damage
With industrial-grade protection circuitry that protects both the power supply and other equipment, the EA-380D safely guards your system against short circuits, power overloads, overvoltage, and other electrical dangers. It also boasts UL, CUL, FCC, T�V, CE, CB, C-tick, CCC, and BSMI safety approvals, and an 80-millimeter low-noise fan keeps the power supply cool for extended use.
Universal Input for Increased Versatility
The Universal Input feature allows you to automatically connect your EA-380D to any power grid in the world within 90-240 VAC without having to adjust the input-power select switch.
Assortment of Power Supply Connectors
An assortment of power-supply connectors provides multiple options for customizing your case. The 24-pin power connector goes to the motherboard, the ATX/EPS connector allows for a dedicated power supply to the processor, and two PCI-E connectors (6-pin and 6+2 pin) are used for PCI Express graphics cards. In addition, there are connectors for hard-disk drives, floppy drives, and SATA drives.
Weighing 3.6 pounds, the EA-380D measures 3.4 x 5.9 x 5.5 inches (H x W x D). It has dual +12-Volt output circuits for a maximum combined output of 336 Watts.
The Antec EarthWatts EA-380D Green PC Power Supply is backed by a three-year manufacturer's limited warranty.

Top customer reviews
Most power supply units have better efficiency in the idle, and about 80% usage ranges. When a higher efficiency PSU says it is 90% efficient, you can read further to find that this rating is compared to other PSU's standards of efficiency... generally only resulting in that high advertised efficiency when it is above a specific usage level. They usually show that a lower usage will result in similar efficiency to a simple 80+ or 80+ Bronze (or anything lower than the comparison).
For instance, if we install an 800W 80+ Platinum efficiency PSU in a system that consumes only 350W max, the PSU isn't even stretching its legs out. This low usage means the efficiency of a 450W 80+ Bronze would be comparable (potentially better) in this use-case. If you are using more than 80% of that 800W version though... You would experience better efficiency during that above 80% usage. When below that, efficiency drops a decent amount. Read the PSU boxes and look at this on your next PSU purchase.
We purchased these PSUs b/c we wanted to power simple workstations, Pf-Sense boxes, and even with NAS PC designs often constructed for clients. The low power is still more than enough to run 1 SSD, 3-4 HDDs (larger than 2TB ea) an Athlon II x4 630 and an old 6850: 2GB GPU in a Windows Server 2012 or OpenMediaVault environment w/o any issues.
Please ppl... Read more about PSU's when purchasing. We may be tempting to buy the biggest and baddest, but your system and electric bill can benefit significantly from a properly matched PSU. If you are going to underutilize a large wattage, high efficiency PSU under 70% of it's capability... Money is being wasted along with electricity. What is the point of purchasing an expensive, high efficiency PSU if it is not going to fully use its abilities.
Overall, these PSUs are great for simpler, smaller builds. They are not modular, but they deliver solid power at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend to those who need a PSU for applications like listed above.
To clean your system of dust, take off side doors, and very gently use vacuum cleaner hose with bristle attachment to pull away dust, then use canned air to blow out any in crevices. It's best to hold fans still with finger so they wont spin fast and cause damage.
I'm a software developer and have built many systems. This is one of my all-time favorite power supplies. It's great for machines that don't need more power, which is most of them unless you have some high powered graphic cards in your system or other power hungry cards and devices.
As for wattage, buying a power supply that is overrated from what your system needs can be wasteful and inefficient... so buy a 'right-sized' power supply if you can. No need to buy a 600+ watt power supply for a system that only needs 400 watts or less.
As for cost, sure, you can buy cheaper power supplies, but a power supply is a vital component in your system and there are some real crappy ones out there. All power supplies are NOT the same. Cheap ones are often built with lousy components that will fail quickly, are more inefficient, can struggle or fail when outputting near their maximum power, and can even be dangerous.
Stick with this one like this for a quality unit that is quiet and efficient without blowing the bank.
Other good power supply brands that I trust besides Antec are Seasonic and Corsair... but there are others. For example, here's another good one to consider (with a little more power too and includes a power cord): Corsair CX Series 430 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze ATX12V/EPS12V 384 Power Supply CX430M
Don't forget this doesn't come with a power cord... a good thing for me, but not for someone who needs one.
This PS comes with plenty of connectors, more than most people would probably need. It has a 24-pin power connector which can also be used on a 20-pin motherboard; it also has 2 12-volt processor power connectors if your setup calls for that. I have the excess connectors wire-tied together and tucked out of the way in an unused drive bay. The exhaust fan is very quiet, in fact it's hard to hear it at all unless the room is very quiet, and even then it's not at all bothersome.
The 380D is touted as energy-efficient, and I believe it. I hooked my system up to my Killawatt meter, and even with everything going full bore, it has never pulled more than about 160 watts. Granted, I have a somewhat basic system, but even allowing for future-proofing and adding components later on, there's plenty of breathing room there.
Be aware, if you aren't already, that the Earthwatts power supplies do not come with a power cable to connect to household power. If you have an extra one laying around, as many of us do, that's not a problem; if not you will have to buy one.
Overall, I am very pleased with this power supply, and highly recommend it.
