All Antecs are not created equal...

I decided the Raidmax 350W I temporarily put into my gaming PC had to go due to noise (needed a PS with A P4 connector so I slummed a little). Just for grins I looked at the wifes Antec PS to see whether it or my other Antec was quieter.

300W Antec 1 +5V@30A +12V@14A +3.3V@15A;Max +5&+3.3=160W
300W Antec 2 +5V@30A +12V@15A +3.3V@20A;Max +5&+3.3=220W P4*
350W Raidmax +5V@25A +12V@14A +3.3V@16A;Max +5&+3.3=178W P4

*Max rating on +5 and +3.3 and +12 is limited to 280W. The 12V P4 connection replaces the lower voltage to the CPU regulator on the older MBs so this isn't a big deal.

READ THE RATINGS BEFORE BUYING! Even if it is Antec or Enermax.

Both Antecs were inaudible, the Raidmax was a definite noise contributor.

Antec 2, aka my wifes ex power supply ;) is now in the gaming machine.

Note: All three of these powered the system in my sig. just stably gaming and during burn in tests even overclocked at XP3000.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
