Inter-Tech Energon 750W

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello.

I was wondering if anyone has or had this PSU or heard anything about how it performs.

This is the PSU.

The website is in german, but you can see the specs there.

I was thinking of getting another 5770 and CF and i am in need of a new PSU and saw this. I cant really afford an Antec, Corsair, Silverstone and so on and this looks pretty decent.

I've seen that fan grille before, but I can't place it.


OEMs it is NOT:
CWT
SeaSonic
Topower
ATNG
Huntkey
Sirtec
Sirfa
Solytech
Delta
Andyson
HEC
HIPRO
FSP


That's most of the common manufacturers. Dunno, man. Hard to say on an unknown brand without knowing the OEM.

Wouldn't go near it, save up and buy a decent PSU.

I've seen the 650W model and is almost as light as a sheet of paper so I'd advise you to stay away...they probably overrate it by god knows how much

EDIT: I just noticed that the grille looks very similar to Enermax Infiniti series (I have one lol) even the back side looks alike...so maybe I'm wrong about this model it's possible that has nothing in common with 650W one I had in my hands...

I found this.


It seems that the OEM is Andertek.

And i noticed that the 650W version is made by CWT, now i have no idea if its any better than Andertek, but if it is i could get that since a 650W PSU would do ok on my system that only draws only about 300W at full load.

I've never heard of Andertek, so I really have no idea. CWT is usually decent, but not always; they do and have made some fairly shoddy units alongside their good ones. But a 650W CWT is probably a PSH unit, which is decent. The Corsair TX750W is a CWT PSH.

I'd pass. Passive PFC, not a lot of guts for a 750. I've seen Andertek come up here and there, but can't remember where right now.

Yea i saw it has a passive PFC which is why i am going to get the 650W version which has an active PFC and the OEM is CWT.

Seriously, dude?

Looking at this unit, I would not even bring an Inter-Tech PSU into the same room as my PC, let alone install one.

I don't mean to sound like a snob (even though I am one about PSU's) but seriously, I'm sure you could find a decent-brand 550-600W unit for around the same price that would power you rig just fine, even with xfire 5770's.

I dunno what you can get where you live, but I'd look for one of these instead. They're not great, but I bet they'd be better than the Innards-Wreck Ener-Gone 750W you're looking at:

Antec Basiq 550W
Tuniq Potency 550W
Gigabyte Superb 550W
Mushkin XP 650W
Any OCZ unit of 550W or above
A Topower or Tagan unit 550W or above
(I'm going by a price point of US$50 on newegg.com, and did not confirm they all have 2 PCI-Ex connectors, btw)

And has been mentioned, since you're considering the 650W instead, the name CWT alone doesn't mean a damn thing. They've made plenty of pieces of junk for low-end 're-badge' companies in their day.
