Antec TruePower Quattro 850W


We have seen an abundant amount of 1000+ watt power supplies hit the market recently. But is that considered overkill? Or is just needed? Well that's the first thing you need to look into when purchasing a power supply, the amount of power that your computer current pulls. If it pulls 500 watts, then it get 600-700 watt power supply, always leave room for upgrading components at a later point in time. The next thing you need to look for is the power efficiency of that particular power supply, most of the newer power supplies all have the 80+ certification, which will allow you pull the amount of power your computer needs and no more. Following that there are some minor nit picky things that you may want, like a modular power supply, to help keep your wires organized. Well Antec knows all of this and made an ultimate power supply that satisfies all of these, the Antec TruePower Quattro 850 watt power supply is large enough for 90%+ of computer users, it is power efficient, and is modular. Se lets see how this amazing power supply really rates.

Antec's Take:

You could search the four corners of the earth for a stable and reliable power supply, but you need look no further than Antec’s TruePower Quattro™! More compact than most competing power supplies of the same wattage, yet ideally suited for handling the most demanding system specs, the TruePower Quattro™ is designed to meet the 80PLUS® certification which means that it consumes about 33% less energy than equivalent power supplies. Four 12V rails increase your system stability. The TruePower Quattro™ Comes with four PCI-E connectors for powering one (or even two) of the newest generation of video cards.
