Club Overclocker is at it again with a new review of the Antec TruePower 480w power supply.

In previous reviews and forums discussions we've covered the AMD Recommended Power Supply Issue and recounted endless circumstances in which a power supply was to blame for system failure. To briefly recap, a power supply rated at 300 Watts may very well be able to deliver 300 Watts. However, the filter and regulator circuits in that power supply may be composed of poor quality components and thus not able to properly normalize power output when a high strain is put upon the unit. Many a beginner system builder has emailed us with "Why does this power supply from Brand-X only cost $50 and this power supply from Brand-Y cost more than my case did?" It's what's inside that makes all the difference in the world. While AMD no longer maintains a list of individual power supplies that have met the "AMD Recommended" field test, they do maintain a list of Manufactures whose power supplies have passed all manner of tests and evaluations.
