Antec TruePower Trio 650W vs. Silverstone Zeus 650W

post #1 of 25

Antec TruePower Trio 650W vs. APEVIA ATX-AS680W 680W

EDIT: I changed the challenge to Antec TruePower Trio 650W vs. Silverstone Zeus 650W



Both of these PSU's are in the same price range. They both seem to be solid performers and a good purchase.

Please give me your opinions and any experience/facts concerning these products. It has come down to these two PSU's and I need to decide!

The only obvious advantage I see with the Antec is that is has a 5 year warranty opposed to the Apevia 1 year warranty.

Help! Thanks.

The Apevia will probably blow up on you.


I'd go for the Antec, but in that price range I'd go for the Corsair HX 520 or 620.

Yeah my old apevia blew up before i got my corsair...

Isn't Apevia made by or used to be known as Aspire? In which case, I heard from quite a few people to stay away from Aspire made PSU's.

Corsair 520w for $79 AR or $69 with Google checkout if you are interested- http://www.buy.com/prod/corsair-520w...203270716.html

Thanks but Corsair 520W is not powerful enough to power two 8800 GTS SLI'd, plus I plan ot OC video, CPU, and RAM. And the Corsair 620W is about $50 more than I can get the 650W Antec for.

Well, out of the two you mentioned, I would definitely go for the Antec. I have never had issues with them.

PCP&C Silencer 610W for $148 is capable of running two 8800GTX in SLI along with a Quad-Core system.

This maybe $19 over your budget but when it comes to power and reliability? PC Power & Cooling beats them all.

Once you go PCP&C, you won't look back.

the pc&c silencer 610 would def run gtx's sli. if i had to choose between the 2 you mentioned i would get the antec... but antec doesnt make the greatest psu's. the corsair hx620 is also an awesome psu. any of these will work for you.

It actually could easily power that setup.

I have... had to replace the capacitors inside 2 (true blue & true power series) as they'd bloated (crappy Fuhjyyu), awesome PSU once replaced

FWIW I believe they're using marginally better quality capacitors now, still out of the 2 options the Antec wipes the floor with that POS Apevia/Aspire PSU

The Corsair or PCP&C options would be worth considering, as money invested in either is money well spent!
