Great deal once again!
Very solid PSU for high end rigs.

Mummel 11-15-2012 08:01 AM

No posts, 4 TU and "trending deals". OMFG this is a joke.

Linoleum 11-15-2012 08:06 AM

I love Antec PSU's. I have the Basiq, Green and Gamer in 3 different rigs and all have been running great for over a year now. I am half tempted to get this for a build I havent even started thinking about yet.

MeatCatalog 11-15-2012 10:00 AM

This is an awesome deal for a great psu.

4 40amp +12v rails for $55? Are you for serious? (750W peak).

I've installed a good 40 antec supplies from earthwatts, eco neos, high current gamers and I don't have a single report of even 1 failing. I'm sure they do but failure rate seems pretty low.

As for antec rebates they are great. Usually get the approval email in about a week and the rebate in about 6 weeks.

Get the Seasonic if you're only going to have one GPU. Get the Antec if you're going to CF/SLI. The Antec is a Delta Electronics OEM unit.

Thanks, was about to buy the Seasonic before it went OOS. went ahead and picked it up.

I currently have an Antec PSU from way back and it sometimes has an issue where the computer will restart every 5-10 seconds. A power cycle of the PSU usually fixes it. Still annoying though.

Thanks again.

Does the seasonic run lower wattage than the Antec when using for casual use, or is it the same? I want to get this for HTPC and gaming. Thanks

Both will draw as much power as needed from the wall. The Seasonic will draw less power from the wall because it is a more efficient unit, gold vs bronze certification.

Wooty 11-15-2012 11:55 AM

wasn't there a better deal for this power supply in the past? If i recall correctly, this is a non modular power supply.

I believe there was an earthwatts for $33 shipped

Hi :)
Looking at that link, it looks like this particular one was $60 then

$60 AR + 20% off coupon = $48 assuming no tax.
that was the better deal but again, that was 1 year ago. the 55$ price of this power supply has come up more than once, i think twice this year not including this one.

falleng0d 11-15-2012 05:32 PM

Have to say, it is a pretty cheap price for a decent quality 750 watter. You dont often get 750 watt psu's in the $55ish price range. I believe these are Seasonic units arnt they? I cant remember.

spectrum8 11-15-2012 06:03 PM

Was about to pull the trigger...but i don't really need it.My XFX 650w (seasonic) is modular and plenty for my new build. My arctic white C70 case would look bad with a red PSU anyway :).

foreinter 11-15-2012 08:04 PM

Any chance to see a better deal on the 750w power supply during BF?

The 750 W is based off of Delta"s design but the 620 W is based off of Seasonic's.

XFX 650W PCU is the WORST I have ever had. Had to RMA it twice - both time worked fine for 5-6 month. After that PC became unstable. Decided to throw it to trash even it is still under the warranty. Thanks to God it didn't kill any other components, but it was PITA to determine the reason of instability.

stridhiryu03 11-15-2012 11:14 PM

Bought this unit for my folding machine. Made a slight clicking noise out of the box. Had it rmaed and was fine.. until a few months later when the slight clicking returned. It's minor but drives you crazy when you were going for a silent build.

icepop4who 11-15-2012 11:39 PM

buy antec is a gamble. I own this PSU but the fan died in 3 months. RMA was a PAIN. charged me twice and I was out of $200 for another 3 months. Whole thing didn't settle until 5-6 months later. Extremely frustrating experience.

The new unit didn't die yet but it's a gamble. Hope you get a good one or prepare to deal with horrible customer service.

fffblackmage 11-15-2012 11:41 PM

Does it matter if it's modular or not for something like this? If you need 750W, then won't you be using just about all the cables anyways?

Not necessarily. I have a 700 Watt PSU (OCZ ModXtreme) and I only use like 4 cables out of 6 or 8 I believe. It just makes the whole set up much cleaner looking and more air flow.

Dealwizard 11-16-2012 12:45 AM

If it was single rail and modular I would get it...my 650w might give out after the extra ssd and hard drive i plan to put in it on black friday. It's already pretty close probably since I have i5-2500k OC and crossfire running with 2 hd's and an ssd.

Unless you have an SLI or crossfire setup with mid to high teir GPU's, you are fine. For even a 2 year old gtx 480 OC'ed heavily and a 2500k oc'ed heavily the max power you would use is about 550w to 570w. HDD's use no more than 12w and ssds use no more than 5w.

Edit: Just reread and saw you have crossfire. What GPU?

cuoreesitante 11-16-2012 01:35 AM

I have two 5970s that I want to Crossfire (currently just using one), would this be sufficient?

WannabeTechie2 11-16-2012 04:08 AM

Great power supply, I bought this for a previous build. In for another one for a future build, thanks OP.

I have cross fired two Radeon 6850's without issue with this power supply.

Well i got the one that came with a poker chip set (:D) from TD last year i believe. Sold the poker thing for $15 and got the PSU for $50. Not bad for a really good modular PSU made by seasonic.

A 5870 is much more powerful than a 6850 :cool:. Now take 2 5870's and put them onto one PCB with slightly lower clocks...and double that to 4 nearly 5870-equivalent GPU's.

TR0N 11-16-2012 06:26 AM

Hey guys, I'm in the process of choosing my components for a new PC build. So far I have this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nRDq Do you think I should get this over the Rosewill HIVE-650? I don't really need 750w I guess, but this is cheaper than my 650.

Jookmasta 11-16-2012 08:02 AM

I highly recommend this power supply. This one in particular rarely goes on sale and at this price point, it trumps most PSUs that hover in this price range. I have been using one for the last year with no hiccups in my gaming rig. The wattage may be overkill for some but honestly, tis best to have more juice than not enough.

dipperq 11-16-2012 08:24 AM

i felt like biting, although it is not Modular, and i am planning a single GTX 670 build. The efficiencies is good at 200 -300 wts load.

two 5970s will pull 50a at full load, this PSU has 160a, so ya, it will be fine

Perfect. ThankS!

I believe that the wattage is the capacity, I think of it like the bandwidth. The unit only pulls what is demanded of it. So if you put a 1000w psu in a build that only pulls 300 watts, that is what it pulls. Also if I recall correctly PSUs usually reach their max effeciency (bronze is 82-85% effecient [tomshardware.com]) at around 50% draw.

I do not know if a system that requires up to 700 watts would most often use half (since the system is not usually going to be maxed out.

pyro 11-16-2012 09:35 AM

btw, this will go perfectly (color wise) with the $30 RAIDMAX case i just ordered :)

CHeston 11-16-2012 01:15 PM

I'd buy this but then I remember this really isn't something I need right now. Id prob have bought it if it weren't for the fact our country is burning down and last week America decided to keep throwing fire on it. At least I would have had hope we are going to start to put out the fire. But no, thanks to stupid people, the treasonous media, and and endless supply of morons who only want free stuff even if they have to destroy America, I now have to spend money on a generator, acquire fire wood, food, water, guns, bullets and gold for the upcoming financial crash and rampant hyperinflation. Its going to be a disaster unlike this world has ever seen. Way worse than the Weimar Republic.

So call me nuts or radical but just remember me when our dollar is barely worth its weight in corn or flour and there is massive unrest/panic all over. We can not keep spending printed money forever without serious serious reprocutions and I hope every last idiot who votes for the flat earther politicians who deny we have a problem suffers the most of all as they brought this upon all of us.

It's in my signature, an HD 6970 and 6950 in crossfire. I'm aware that hd's and ssd's use very little power, but I'm afraid I'm already pretty close to 650w usage and this might be the little bit to push it over the edge. I'm pretty sure you know those are the 2 top single gpu amd cards from the last generation, so they use a good bit of power.

psucaptkickass 11-16-2012 01:41 PM

I've sworn off Antecs. Bought one, it died...didn't have receipt. Bought a second one, it died and was able to RMA it. (Kept it sealed just in case of an emergency) Bought no name PSU from Microcenter, and never had problems. Bought a Corsair for my new computer, and it has been running like a champ.

Not to say that this particular model is bad or anything... The price is very good, just wanted add another Antec experience to the thread.

I was screwed by OCZ Technology for a $20.00 rebate. They sent me a card with $.07 on it. After faxing over a scam report to the credit card that issued the card they never sent me the rebate. Will never ever buy from them again. Everyone else I filed with always sent me a rebate.

liberius 11-21-2012 03:33 AM

I totally forgot to buy another PSU after my Enermax failed. Was over a year ago but still remember exactly when/how it happened.
It started blaring with this ear-piercing, extremely loud beeping sound like a smoke alarm - except coming from my puter - that sent me into a panic until I finally found out what it was: PSU fan failure, who woulda thunk it, during late-night p0rn session (j/k) but all the same, middle of the night what a surprise. Been using an Antec green 400 something as a temp back-up for so long, I completely forgot about getting another one. I was wondering why my puter has been acting laggy/finicky. Wow, unreal it took this post to help me realize that, been real busy.
This is going to solve so many issues for me, thanks for this nice find and memory trigger :)
