[H]ard|OCP reviewed the highest powered model of the new TruePower Classic lineup, the 750W non-modular 80 Plus Gold rated PSU which has a lot of advertising hype to live up to. Inside it is a highly modified Seasonic G-Series with quality capacitors, though the fan is only of middling quality. This PSU did pass every test that was thrown at it bit did not quite provide the same high performance as other PSUs [H] tested that used the same design. On the other hand at $103 it does not cost as much either making it a good example of compromise between extreme performance and extreme cost.
"Antec comes to us today with a mid-level 750 watt enthusiast computer power supply that touts Gold efficiency. This PSU is somewhat light on marketing and heavy on features such as Japanese capacitors, "unprecedented tight voltage regulation," and low ripple and noise to "maximize your system's performance."
