Antec was kind enough to send along one of their latest Power Supplies aimed at the power hungry, yet not going overboard yet, gamers, rated at 650W this TruePower Trio! packs quite a punch.
The included cables are long enough to reach the furthest locations in this mid-sized tower case; the connectors are plentiful and geared towards SATA / SLI users:
- 20+4 ATX connector
- 4-pin 12V connector
- 8-pin Xeon/EPS connector
- 2x 6-pin PCIe connectors
- 5x 4-pin power connectors
- 2x 4-pin floppy power connectors
- 4x SATA power connectors
- 2x 4-pin Fan (12v thermostatically only) connectors
I don’t have the proper gear the successfully test a 650W power supply, but do trust in testing metholodology of jonnyGURU’s review
, the Trio is build by Seasonic, its fan doesn’t become audible until you pass over 500W load, and it stays relatively silent until you hit the max; load of 650W.
The Antec Trio is a great budget PSU. It does have solid rails, is quite efficient, quiet, has active PFC and SLI/Crossfire capable. The only thing I can't report on is longevity. Keep in mind that the Antec Trio is not built on the same platform as other Seasonics, such as the Corsair HX units, the PC Power and Cooling Silencer or Seasonic's own S12 and M12 models. But at $120, it's certainly far from overpriced.
