Excerpt: 10 Flares 10 Flares × Last month we reviewed Antec’s new 80 Plus Gold Certified ‘ High Current Pro 850W ‘ power supply, and we were impressed. Today we are looking at the 900W model in their ‘High Current Gamer’ range. As this series is 80 Plus Bronze Certified, it is a little more affordable, with the 900w unit retailing for only £100 inc vat.
Summary: Antec is one of the best known brand names in computer hardware enthusiast circles. Many HardOCP editor's personally use its products and Antec is a "go-to" brand that remains on our suggested hardware list. Can even a quality company like Antec miss the mark? It does this time.
Excerpt: In the hardware industry Antec are well known for producing high quality cases which are stylish and perform well but that isn’t their only area of expertise as they also have a great reputation with their power supply range. In our experience this reputation is well deserved because as well as winning numerous awards for their cases and PSUs on our site we have also used a number of their retail products in our own systems with great success.
Antec is a well known name among PC enthusiasts and their line of PC power supplies, enclosures, and PC accessories is one of the most complete in the industry. Today they are introducing their new High Current Gamer line of PSUs following closely on last months debut of the High Current Pro series.
Excerpt: Today I'm looking at the 3rd generation Antec TruePower power supply; The Trio. It's ATX12V, and it's more efficient than the previous models. But does it hold up like the old Channelwell built units? We'll find out today!
Conclusion: The TruePower Trio is an excellent power supply, but I think it'll be overkill for most people. Antec makes other PSUs that can do the job just as well at a lower cost. Still, if you're one of those people who goes high-end on everything in your PC, there's no doubt that this power supply needs to be in it. For multi-CPU systems that need a lot of power, the TruePower Trio 550 or 650 may be your best option.
Excerpt: Antec has once again proven that glossy finishes and modular cables isn't all to making a great power supply. Despite lacking some glamour, the TruePower Trio hits where it counts- stability, flexibility, and rock-solid performance. Given the Trio's relatively low cost, the bang for the buck cannot be denied.
