Antec TP-650C PSU

Testing:

Testing was done with the following test setup

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 3,3GHz
Motherboard: Asus P8P64 PRO Rev 3.1
RAM: Patriot 4GB DDR3
HDD: Patriot TorqX 2 128GB SSD
Videocard:  Asus 9800GT

For idle voltages we were idling in Windows with no processes running. For full load we used OCCD loading software.

3,3v:

The 3,3V rail is usually very stable and this was no different. We used our multimeter that sends the voltages to its software on the computer and got an average of 3.3V.

5V:

Same goes for the 5V rail, we had it stable during the load test and idle test, during a 20 min period we saw it fluctuating between 5.01-5.02V a few times for a second.

12V:

This usually has some interesting results where the rail dips quite a bit. We had some minor dips once in awhile, perhaps a few times a min but on average we stayed at 12.02V.

Unpacking:

Conclusion:

This is a nice piece of equipment, it’s gold certified and it has the same high quality as other Antec products.

It is expensive though, I have seen it for around 150$ and up so it’s a tad spendy and perhaps a bit much for some users.

If you run a high end rig a gold certified PSU  is something you will likely prefer. The fan was not loud and connectors and the case itself are high quality.

I guess the only thing I can complain about is the price and lack of modular cables.

Overall a superb PSU which receives a recommended award.

Pros:
Nice looking
+ Not to loud
+ Gold certified

Cons:
– Not modular
– Price
