    Antec True Power Trio 430 Watt


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    These days, most gamers need a strong power supply to keep their system running while they're taking out bad guys, especially if they play on a state-of-the-art game machine with more than one graphics card. But a lower watt power supply still serves its purposes. Today we're going to look at the Antec True Power Trio 430 watt power supply, and see what it can deliver.

     

     

    Power supplies are a vital part of the computer. They are what keeps the juice flowing through the system. They are kind of underrated as far as computer parts go.  No one really cares much about their PSU until something goes wrong with it. It doesn't make your computer any faster like RAM or a new CPU, but without it, it won't matter what kind of system you have. 

    I have never heard anyone talk about upgrading their PSU unless it's dying or died already. I have had a few different PSUs here for testing recently. Surely that eTiger 1200 Watt PSU I tested could run anything under the sun, but that is expensive and not a great replacement PSU for most people, it would be a waste of power. 

    I recently got an Antec True Power Trio 430 Watt PSU, so I thought I would throw some tests at it and see how it comes out. 430 watts isn't a hell of a lot of power for anyone. Chances are if I threw a pair of high end graphics cards in there with a quad core processor, it would crap out. 

    I have a moderately nice home theater PC in my house now, and I'm thinking this would be a perfect place for it. The computer should fit within the 430 watt boundaries and at a low cost, be a great PSU over some more expensive, higher power units.  Time to get to reviewing to see if I'm right.  

    What you get

     

    In the box are standard PSU items: the PSU, manual, screws, and power cord. 

     

    It's time to take a closer look at the PSU. On the top (or bottom) we find a 120mm fan. This is pretty much the standard now. When running the fan is really slient and still pushes enough air to keep this little PSU cool.

     

    The back is all metal mesh and the power socket.  Sometimes with the higher end models there is an additional fan located here to push the air out as the bigger one pulls it in. The air here is passively pushed out of the power supply.
