Antec are one of the oldest suppliers in the market today, celebrating their 25th year in the business. They are famed for their high quality PSUs and cases, of which their popularity has stood the test of time. In this review we will be seeing if one of Antec’s newer PSUs is a testament to the reputation Antec has earned.

There are a ton of power supplies on the market today all claiming to have various features and specifications that they may or may not have. Now people are becoming more aware about the importance of their power supply they are looking for good quality units rather than the cheapest or prettiest. Antec certainly have experience behind them, but how will their TruePower New 750W match up to the competition from competitors?

We will be taking a very close look at Antec’s Truepower New PSU and if it matches up to the superior reliability and stability that the previous generation Truepower PSUs offered. The unit is manufactured by Seasonic and uses a similar internal design to Seasonic’s own M12D which offers the same stability that the TP-750 is expected to have. Seasonic have been around even longer than Antec and are also famed for top quality PSUs. Considering this, we are expecting the TP-750 to be a quality performer.

    Really good job on this one Jake. Can't wait to see what you can do about building a load tester :DAndy

  • Massdeth

    yeah, a load tester is a must for the teritory you guys are venturing into!! Antec shouldnt have much to worry about though cause they've really stepped up to the plate in the last couple years…there 1000watt and above psu's are just outstanding!! Looking forwward to where this ends up!!

  • Antec Support

    Thanks for the great review eTeknix, and thanks for the kind words Massdeth. We do everything to deliver only the best products to our customers, and we listen to their needs. We are enthusiasts alike, and set high demands. It is always good to hear that our customers are satisified in what we are doing! 🙂

    I'm not sure if a load tester will provide ripple results, but ripple testing is VERY important when it comes to evaluating PSUs. Voltage stability is great, but if ripple is high or out of spec, it can cause irreparable damage to system components even if the voltage and amperage output is OK. Ripple is also known as "noise" but it's electrical noise and not actual "noise" that you can hear (but you all knew that already 😉 ). Temp testing, cross-loading, and "torture" testing are also important PSU tests, and both cross-loading and torture tests can be performed with a load tester. Torture testing involves maxing out each rail and drawing more than the PSU is rated for (for example: a 750w unit would be torture tested by drawing 800w (if possible) with each rail maxing the amperage output (or more if possible) for a given amount of time -or until the unit's protections kick in which would shut the unit off- or until the unit burns out (usually only cheap units burn out) -but you guys knew all this already! I'm explaining for those readers that may not be familiar with PSU testing and they may not realize that voltage stability is only a SMALL part of what makes a quality PSU – a 750w unit for $120 and a 750w unit for $40 are very VERY far from being the same unit regardless of labeled output). All my babbling aside, the TPN750 is yet another EXCELLENT unit from Antec! If you're looking for great PSU, Antec is one company you can trust to ALWAYS deliver quality!!!

    Well said, if only more people understood that! You're right, the load tester will not allow us to test ripple, for that an oscilloscope is required which is very expensive. I am looking into borrowing one however purchasing one is out of the question! It is always important to test the ripple under load though, so there will be a lot hooked up to our test PSUs. I have the design sorted for the tester but it is the case of ordering in the materials and building the thing that will take the time!

    I'm learning so much here! Thanks!

    this and the 650w unit are very attractive considering their price.if i didnt buy my TX650 early, id have bought the 650w TPN
