Antec TruePower 550watt Power Supply Review

TweakTown Rating: 9.5%Manufacturer: Antec



After subjecting the unit to quite exhaustive tests, the Antec True Power 550watt PSU meets its ratings and designed specifications. Overall, we were very impressed with the unit. It is well built, featuring neat wiring and a very clean interior. Power cables are long enough to fit just about every case out there and the variety of connectors ensures that even the most hardcore enthusiast will be able to power all of their devices and then some without a problem.


Furthermore, Antec's "Low Noise Technology" ensures that the unit will not be running any louder than it should be - ideal for those striving to build a silent PC. With a maximum output current of 550watt, the True550 is admittedly more than the average user will ever require, however, there are lower rated models out there which I trust will perform just as well as our 550watt model did. At a price of $US139.95, the unit is not cheap, however, it is certainly one of the cheapest 550watt power supplies currently on the market.


- Pros


Huge 550watt maximum output current
