Antec TruePower 750W
The unit comes in the standard power supply colour – matte black – although perhaps a slightly lighter shade of it than we are used to. When it comes to Antec products, they do not have over-the-top styling and unnecessary gimmicks; instead they simply let the performance do the talking which is exactly how it should be.
The power socket and switch are surrounded by a large grill so as to allow airflow into the internal chamber and for once it’s not a honeycomb grill but instead small squares.
One side contains the outputs table and numerous logos such as RoHS and other recycling ones. The 750W unit has a total of four +12V rails each at 25A; both the +3.3V and +5V rails also use this current. ATX12V v2.3 and EPS12V v2.91 are the versions used in this particular unit.
In terms of ripple and noise though the 12V rails are rated at a much higher 120 compared to 50 of the lower volt rails.
Alongside all the usual safety approvals, the TruePower 750W has a Bronze 80 PLUS certification which is always a welcome site and is a good indication of an efficient power supply meaning that you’re not wasting electricity and money on your bill.
nVidia SLI is supported as well as dual and quad core CPUs so there is no problem running this unit with dual card configurations or high power output rigs.
Cooling the internal components is a 120mm PWM fan that, according to Antec, runs 50% quieter than standard fans – a bonus for silent enthusiasts but to what extent noise levels are actually reduced will be investigated later on.
With the majority of cabling fixed to the unit, just four modular ports are available for additional cables: two are red indicating use for PCI-e cables with the other two black ports for either molex or SATA cables.
All that’s left to do is research the UL number but unfortunately we couldn’t glean much information from it as it simply leads straight back to Antec themselves.
