    Default Antec TruePower Classic Series 750W @ TechPowerUp

    The fresh Antec TruePower Classic series now consists of four members with capacities that range from 450-750 W. These units mostly address budget-orientated users that don't mind dealing with native cables to save on cost but want top performance, since none of them are modular and their other features can be called high-end. Non-modular PSUs are in our opinion a real pain during cable management, and their loose cables will hamper internal airflow if you don't tuck them away carefully, but such PSUs obviously don't suffer the voltage drops particular to modular connectors and don't cost as much as PSUs with modular cables.

    We will take a thorough look at the TP-750C today. It, like all TP-C units, features Gold efficiency, has a five years warranty, and is equipped with a full set of protection features. Antec also says the unit to utilize two +12V rails with heavy-duty Japanese caps to ensure the TP-750C runs reliably, and does so for a very long time. Another thing that caught our attention while we were looking at its official product page was the mention of its PhaseWave design. An LLC converter in Gold- and Platinum-certified units of high caliber, it tells us that the platform utilizes an up-to-date design and is by Seasonic, and that it can definitely compete with other high-end designs. The TP-750's main compromise really is its non-modular design. We were also surprised to see six PCIe connectors. ANTEC had to remove the second EPS connector to do so, but hardly anyone actually needs two of these.

    Typo's:
    Page 2 says only 1 PEG connector in de specs table.
    On page 4 the link to the ICE2HS01G resonant controller isn't right.
    And on the last page there is a extra "[/URL]"

    And the million dollar question: does it really have two 12V rails, because then the other Seasonic G-series probably have it to, same IC.

    While the 0.2 cent question could be: does it worth a second look?

    The other G-Series are two rail designs. (except for the 360W Model)
    It has the apropriate Protection IC, there are some resistors (or something like that) for each rail, they are not connected, not even on the modular PCB. So yeah, they are two rail. And probably the OCP is set at 40Amps...

    40A is way to low for this design, because all the six PEG connectors are on the same rails. You could use this PSU for powering three R9 280X for mining, then the OCP should trip by something like 60A.

    The OCP for the 550 watts might be around 40A.

    All fixed, thanks!

    Apparently isn't so good to work on multiple reviews at the same time

    I was talking about the original Seasonic G-Series. Like the G-550, not the Antec.

    But six PCIe connectors on one rail are a bit too much.

    Just how did they manage to screw this one up? I mean, it's not a bad PSU per se, but that ripple seems to indicate this was intended to be a 550W unit, whose OCP and OPP were shifted to let it do 750+

    And what's with the badly done multirail?
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Because it is obviously safer...Only the tres stupide think there is an advantage to a single rail....
