Works great

 

Can't find any issues. It's a semi modular psu, great price and value. I think 550 should be enough for a decent setup with a single GPU

Not really a con, but if you have a black case, the silver color doesn't match. I could care less because it's in the back of the case anyways

Quiet, basic upgrade for gaming video card

 

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
