Antec Neopower 650

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Couldn't find anything about this PSU on here (or maybe I suck at searches), doesn't seem to be the most popular.

Anyway, I ordered this PSU with my new system and wanted to get some feedback on how good it is from those who understand.

Will it be able to support OC'ing my 2500k and possibly my gtx 560 ti?
how about dual GPU (SLI)?

to be honest, i picked this one as i was on a budget and it seemed decent.

thank you

Your more than good for a single card, might be cutting it a little close on sli.( imo) Now im sure there are people that will say it will run. ( it may) I dont know about the quality of your psu, but ive personally had good luck with XFX/Corsair psu's
I say if you want to go sli you might want a good 750/850w

Here is the psu recomendation from 3d guru

GeForce GTX 560 Ti
On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.

GeForce GTX 560 Ti in 2-way SLI
A second card requires you to add another ~175 Watts. You need a 700+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (800+ to a KiloWatt is recommended if you plan on any overclocking).
For each other card (3-way SLI) that you add, just add another 200 Watts and 20A on the 12V rails as a safety margin. What would happen if your PSU can't cope with the load? Here are some pointers:

bad 3D performance
crashing games
spontaneous reset or imminent shutdown of the PC
freezing during gameplay
PSU overload can cause it to break down
BIG DADDY!!!!!

thanks, anyone else has experience with this psu?

I will look into replacing it with a decent 850 watt PSU sometime in the future, here's to hoping its not too hard to replace a PSU...

silentpcreview.com likes the neopower at that size. quiet, reliable, efficient. I'm looking at it too, as I've bumped into the power wall as far maxing OC.

Your system will never pull more than 525 Watts. If you throw in another 560 Ti, you MIGHT kiss 600 Watts. A quality 650W will have more than enough power to run everything even while overclocked

that's why i am asking about the quality of the psu i have, lol. assuming its good enough, do you think it would supply enough power for an overclocked cpu + SLI?
