Antec TrueControl 550 watt Power Supply Review

Every time I turn around it seems that the minimum required PSU wattage should be higher than the one I just got. So to take care of this problem, we should be looking for a high-end power supply that will be able to handle the stress of power hungry components.


But not only that, you should also be looking for a power supply that is made with the highest level of quality that you can find. After all, a solid video card alone can set you back over US$400, so we need to have something that will make it work to its highest possible level of performance but also remain stable so there isn't a chance of ruining it.


Folks, the Antec TrueControl offers you both the high power levels required for modern systems and also the quality that you need to run your enthusiast rig. Add in the ability to adjust the actual voltage levels along the various power rails and you have yourself one of the best power supplies currently available. After all, in our quest for more power, we need to be able to get all the power we can muster. This Antec unit does just that and more.


Bottom line...If you need a quality PSU that offers excellent power output plus features for the enthusiast, then just go out and get a TrueControl 550.


- Pros


High power output
