5 out of 5 eggsTried and tested

Pros: I have built three systems since 2011 and this is the only piece of hardware I've re-used. Powers an Intel i7 960, 4 2TB Seagate HDs, 1 240GB Crucial SSD , 2 NVidia GTX 460 (SLI), 4 chassis fans. Never broke a sweat. I will use this PSU for my current build and will update this review.

Cons: The Molex connectors are becoming a bit outdated. IMHO the problem with well made products that perform this long is the compatibility with future products. That's not much of a con, but it's all I could think of.

4 out of 5 eggsCords.. but quiet.

Pros: You won't hear this with your audio turned off (even with the side of the casing forced off). It suppose several graphics cards and other powerful components.

Cons: It's pretty annoying when you can't fit your PSU cables into your casing, so you have to take off the side of your casing and let your computer vomit out cables that you aren't using.

Other Thoughts: If they made the cables disconnect then you would have an incredibly awesome product that is cheat and reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working great

Pros: I wanted to wait some time until I wrote a review so that I can be sure it would last for a while. After having this for more than a year, it's still working strong. I have 6 hard drives (a couple of Caviar Blacks and Velociraptors which can be power hungry), Radeon 5970 dual GPU video card, Core i7 980x overclocked, water cooling pump and a few fans and it's been running just fine, even when the weather gets hot in the summer.

Cons: I'm finding that with newer SATA drives, I need fewer molex connectors and need more SATA power connectors. That's the only complaint I have.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this power supply has been quiet and reliable. I have had to fix various electronic devices and over 90% of the time, the component that fails are the capacitors, specifically electrolytic capacitors. One of the selling points of this power supply is the use of Japanese sealed capacitors, which was attractive to me. I guess time will tell if these will hold up better.

3 out of 5 eggsA little dissapointed

Pros: Great unit. Good reviews, good efficiency, high-wattage capacity.

I got it on sale for around $230

Cons: Not pure Modular. Get with the times Antec! the only acceptable attached cabling on a modern modular PSU should be the ATX 24-pin and 4/8-pin 12v connectors!

The reason I dislike this unit is because it suffers from coil whine. Very bad whine IMHO. I can still here it even with the unit on the floor and placed several feet away.

The whine gets worse once you put any kind of load on it (i.e gaming)
For what this unit cost, this should not be slipping through QC in my opinion... I also realized I don't really NEED a 1200W PSU, and I am going to try to simply return it and get a refund, then look at other less expensive models.

Other Thoughts: It would have been a great unit for me, except for the buzzing/whining noise. Completely unacceptable for a $230 top of its class PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsPhenomenal PSU!

Pros: This beast powers 7 HD, 8Gb ram, an overclocked Extreme CPU, a GTX 580, and 6 gase fans, and it doesn't even break a sweat! All my voltages are consistent, no matter whether under full load or idle, this power supply delivers constant power exactly as it should for all voltages. Extremely solid and heavy, which mostly is the first indicator of quality. The fan is also very quiet, and the air that blows out is never more than just warm.

Cons: It's long. Make sure you have a long case, especially if your case also has room for a bottom mounted fan, which usually sits right behind the PSU.

Other Thoughts: Yes, it may have been a little overkill, but I like breathing room, and want the ability to ramp up to have full load with plenty of reserve. This is what allows a PSU to live for years.

1 out of 5 eggsPS gone BAD

Pros: Good amount of length for the 20 + 4 pin connector, 8x8 (6+2) PCI–E connectors and 12v ATX connector
Power cable is nice and thick.

Cons: well, first 40 mins being in the systems worked fine with 2 SLI 570s, then started to have issuse with the 12v (i was using a program called hwmonitor) then i hear it.... A buzzing noise coming from the power supply!!
3 hours later, it dies......................................
Replaced this power supply with my old one and the systems boots fine.

Other Thoughts: could have been a nice power supply, IF IT LASTED LONGER THEN 4 HOURS!

4 out of 5 eggsSwitched from Corsair AX1200

Pros: Had a Corsair AX1200 for about a month, and then switched over to this power supply. The main thing with the Corsair (that I didn't like), was the connectors were way too rough/tight with the motherboard/other peripheral plugs, especially the giant 24-pin one. Everytime I tried to unplug the thing from the motherboard, the motherboard would bend and literally crackle a bit because the fit was too tight. Needless to say that scared the bejesus out of me, and had me worried about future unplugings and/or motherboard upgrades.

That said, the Antec connectors are MUCH better. Immediately upon opening the box, I could see the cords, the braids, and the plugs were of better quality than the Corsair's. The plugs also fit much better, but were definitely not loose.

Cons: However, I must admit the shell/body quality isn't quite as nice as the Corsair AX1200. It just didn't seem as hefty or as strong. Also, the fan on the Antec is a tiny 90mm fan (I think), that's attached to the back of the PSU. Also, the grill for the fan sticks out, so it got in the way of some part of the PSU cut-out for the case - in other words, I can't have it installed completely flush against the case. Ironic that the case is also an Antec one.

This is in contrast to a decent 120mm fan on the Corsair, oriented on the bottom of the PSU (or top, depending on how you install it).

Cons are definitely worth noting. However, the trade-off in having said cons for improved/better-fitting plugs is more than worth it, IMO.

Other Thoughts: I think a lot of times people mistaken Antec products for not having as great of quality as products from other manufacturers. I think what they miss out on, though, is that the company does is not spend as much money on unimportant aspects, while using the costs to make sure the most important parts are well-built.

In this case, the overall casing/shell of the Antec PSU isn't quite as nice as the Corsair AX1200, and upon first impressions of both PSU's, most will find the Corsair to be nicer. However, you can easily tell Antec spent most of their energy on making really nice cables and plugs for the PSU. They are easily a step above the ones used in the Corsair AX1200, and for me, is more important than the casing of the PSU.

I've found the same thing when I compared a Corsair 600T, with an Antec P280. The Corsair was overall beefier, but when it came to all the tiny little details, such as the side-panel fittings, and all the parts lining up, the Antec was much better.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing is a beast. My voltages are so stable they look like static numbers to the third and fourth decimal place. Comes in super nice packaging with bags to hold all the extra cables. Power cables are extra long, allowed for a very clean install in a 500R.

Cons: None really. There were a couple of cables that weren't modular that could have been, however when you buy a power supply of this size you are probably going to be using most of these anyway, as I did.
