380 WATT ANTEC TRUE 12 VOLT ATX STYLE POWER SUPPLY
From the Manufacturer
TruePower from Antec is the most advanced line of PC power supplies from the company that has led the way in power supply design and quality since 1986. These power supplies feature dedicated output circuitry for each voltage so that each output delivers maximum power whenever it's needed. To make sure these voltages stay accurate, TruePower also includes voltage feedback circuitry to improve system stability.
Thanks to Antec's New Low Noise Technology, system noise is substantially reduced, too. The power supply fans run at the lowest speed appropriate to load and conditions, controlled by an advanced temperature response system that outperforms previous solutions. Dedicated Fan Only power connectors allow TruePower power supplies to control the speed of case fans, too, thus reducing total system noise.

The power supply was very easy to use, and quite silent in operation. Plenty of cables to hook up an ATX board, four hard disks, floppy, two optical disks and extra power to the Radeon graphics card. All with ample cables with no extensions.
The only complaint I had was that for one or two days, it gave off a fairly strong plastic-burning smell. Luckily, I'd seen that mentioned about these power supplies on mailing lists, or I would've been very worried.
The system in worked on: AMD Athlon64 3000 processor (socket 939 updated to Opteron 175), 1 (later 3) Gigs of RAM, MSI Platinum Neo2 (7025) MoBo, ATI 9700 video card, 3 hard drives, DVD writer.
I test with other cheap power supply and no have problems.
Now for the main part of the review. I continually got BSoD(Blue Screans of Death) in 98SE after installing the P/S for about two weeks. Even Windows XP Pro froze up frequently(I dual-boot). After that everything seemed to work ok. Computers have to get used to knew hardware, it's like an organ transplant to them. The gripe I have now is that, although I rarely get freezes or BSoD; my computer stalls frequently(esp. Windows XP) when I issue commands. NAV and my word documents stall before the execution of those programs and saving documents sometimes requires a reboot(cold boot). The P/S is 380 watts, but is not designed for certain case/M/B combinatons. The fans move slower too when hooked up to the fan hook ups because the workload is lite in net surfing/NAV manual scan, ect. I am an avid gameplayer as well and games frequently freeze before execution requiring a reboot.(cold) I usually get them working after that. I do not recommend this, unless you have an antec case and maybe a shop that custom builds computers. If you want an Antec, ask M/BX to build it for you.
