Antec TruePower New Series 750W Power Supply Review

Author: Lee Garbutt
Manufacturer: Antec

A Detailed Look

The steel enclosure of the Antec TruePower New series 750W power supply features a dark gray finish and measures only 150mm (5.9”) long, so it should fit easily into most any case.  It uses a single 120mm fan on the bottom for cooling.  The fan speed is automatically controlled by the internal component temperature (speeds up as the combined load and temperature increases) via an onboard PWM speed controller.  The 120mm fan (AD1212HB-A7BGL) is a high-speed, ball bearing fan manufactured by ADDA and is rated for .37A when operating on 12 VDC. 

The backside panel includes a power receptacle and master On-Off switch.  The open grill structure on the back allows air to exhaust out of the power supply with minimal restriction and turbulence.

The TP-750 comes with a good assortment of hard wired and modular cables and connectors.  All of the cables are covered with black plastic mesh sleeving and measure approximately 20” to 22”” long (to the first connector).  The TP-750 comes with more fixed cables than the average modular PSU but I suspect the majority of users who need a 750W PSU will put most, if not all of them, to good use.

Fixed cables:

•    (1) Main power connector (24-pin/20-pin)

•    (1) ATX 12V 4-pin

•    (1) EPS 12V 8-pin

•    (2) PCI Express 8-pin (6+2)

•    (1) Peripheral with three Optical/HDD Molex and one FDD

•    (1) Peripheral with three Serial ATA

Modular cables:

•    (2) PCI Express 8-pin (6+2)

•    (2) Peripheral with three 4-pin Optical/HDD Molex and one FDD

•    (2) Peripheral with three Serial ATA

There are four modular cable sockets on the front of the PSU.  The two 6-pin black sockets are used for the modular peripheral device cables and the two 8-pin red sockets are used for additional PCI-E cables.  Note: the connectors are labeled as to which +12V output feeds each connector - nice.
