Antec NeoHE Modular 550w PSU

If you are looking for a unit capable of powering a monster system whilst staying whisper quiet, then this is the power supply for you. The noise (or lack of it) plain outstounded me, proving that a high end silent system is indeed possible.
I was slightly dissapointed with the voltage drop on the 5v rails, which could cause problems on some systems, but in my opinion most users are highly unlikely to stress the 5v rail as much as i did on the previous pages.
The unit currently retails for £81 at Overclockers which i feel is a fair price for a Power Supply of this calibre, and definitely is a match for the likes of Tagan and Silverstone who are also targeting this end of the market.
- Efficient with low heat output.
- Reasonable voltage stability.
- Sleeved Cables
- Spotless paintwork finish.
- 5v rail voltages low under full load.
- Lack of Molex connectors.
- Lack of modular plugs (unable to connect all cables).
Thank you to Antec for supplying this product for review :)
