The Power Supply



Anyone who has ever used the Antec Power Supplies will understand why it deserves it's own section. This unit is just downright awesome! It is consistently being rated very high as an authorized PSU to be used with AMD processors, and with very good reason.


The PP303X PSU has a very stable flow of power. It is an ATX unit and can produce up to 160w of power. This ensures that you will always have enough juice for the little toys that always seem to find their way into your system. Some folks would be concerned after adding the high end graphics card, cutting edge sound card, CD-ROM, CD Burner, two hard drives, NIC, modem, and numerous USB devices, but this PSU just keeps right on rolling without a hiccup.


It also has "Smart Fan Feature" which allows the fan to automatically adjust it's speed depending on the temperature within the case. What this means to you is that when your temperature start getting higher at the PSU, it will adjust the fan speed upward to dispel more heat through the unit itself. As the temperature goes down, the fan speed also decreases to help conserve power and prevent unnecessary wear and tear on the unit. Another nice feature of the adjustable speeds is that when your system is not running hot, it doesn't make as much noise. Not that it's loud to begin with, but having it run quieter is just kind of nice.
