Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

I hate noisy power supplies. This one is very quiet.

I have purchased a few of these power supplies over the years to replace the standard 300 or 350 watt power supplies that often come with prebuilt computers that use only the onboard video. Because I am into gaming, I need a stronger power supply to...

This is a basic looking power supply... I don't mind that. but, if you want one that looks "cool" or "hot" or whatever with glowing lights and such... this one is not snazzy like that. I'm not into what my computer looks like, but some people are. I...

BP550 Plus

 

Price is decent for what it does. Hard to find reviews on it. Got the first unit at a Staples when my Kingwin 1400 watts died after 3 years. Staples was the only local shop selling PSU. First unit worked for 2.5 years no problems. Still works.

Second unit i have owned, First one still works after 2.5 years. Second one is just installed 36 hours ago and it works too. 444 watts on the 12v rail. The PCIE 6 pin and 6+2 pin both draw from Rail 3 with 25 amps ; Powers a Core i5 760 @ 3.9Ghz =...

Documentation is lacking on specific details about rail assignments. Cables are a bit stiff, but just a bit ; Emailed Antec, they confirmed- Both the 6 pin and 6+2 pin PCIE power cables draw from Rail 3 at 25 amps. U can run a 970 on this PSU

Antec slipping

 

Antec is my favorite PS company, but buying the 500W continuous power worked stable for a long time before failure

The longevity is not there anymore, the powersupply began squealing at a high pitch, it was outside of 3 year warranty to so no support

Great Power Supply

 

In my business, I have purchased dozens of power supplies from Antec. I have never been disappointed with them.

The partially modular design allows me to keep my cases cleaner by not including cables I don't need

It would be nice to have the option to purchase this in black instead of silver

Solid basic power supply

 

Bought one of these to replace a PSU in one of my older systems. It's quiet and supplies reliable power.

Good price, quiet, steady power delivery

None so far

WORKED FOR 3HRS THEN DIED

 

ANTEC DON'T LET US DOWN.

ANTEC

BUILT A SYSTEM ON IT. AFTER I HAD ALL THE WINDOW UPDATES DONE AND READY TO INSTALL SOME SOFTWARE THE COMPUTER SHUT OFF. PUT ON MY POWER SUPPLY TESTER AND IT FAILED ALL THE VOLTAGES. NOW IN THE PROCESS OF RMA. HOPEFULLY THIS IS AND ISOLATED INCIDENT

Antec BP550 Plus

 

Six years later, it works like the first day I had it

It was an odd choice for antec to make one graphics card power line non-modular. This is a minor annoyance to me, as the machine the power supply is in has absolutely no video out (its a headless server). This is a very minor gripe
