Antec 500W (modular) any good?

Recommended Posts

Ive got it, its not bad. Good value.

 

If youre using it in the computer in your sig, you wont have a problem.

 

Considering what Ive done with mine (for my CPU at 3400mhz now @1.525), I wish I would have gotten something a bit beefier.

I wouldn't buy it.. Google it and you'll find a ton of units that have broken down for various reasons.. (many attributed to the caps used)

 

Mine has been relegated to a non-critical computer because it has been making squealing and other weird sounds for the past four months. Nice price, but you pay for what you get.

dont buy this!

 

my unit burned up today! yes burned up! it was smelling funny, but i couldn't locate it, then it said poof, and smoke and small flames came out. i jacked the power cord out and had to wait for it too cool down before i could unmount it, so went to store and screamed a little, and got a Hiper HPU-4B580 Unit and i'm happy so far (volts looks better).

 

well just to let u know.

the SmartPower is not recommended

 

The NEO HE550, the TRIO 550, and TRIO 650 = all highly recommended by the entire DIY-Street staff (who has had plenty of time with one or all of these psu's)
