Antec Quattro 850 vs PC Power&Cooling 750

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Basically im about to buy either one, the 850 is brand new for 115 and the 750 has only been used for 3 months and is 80 bucks.

Both are great, the only difference is the the 850 is modular and has 4 25s 12v rails and the 750 in not modular and has one 60a 12v rail. Both are over kill for me right now, but i want you opinion on which one you think is better.

Go with the Antec Quattro 850. Better warranty/support and is more powerful and efficient

Is the PC Power a Silencer or Silencer Mk. II?

If semi-modular cabling is worth $35 to you, then get the TPQ. Performance, fan noise and 12V capacity is similar (the Silencer only has 4A less), so the cabling is about the only thing that differentiates the two. I guess since you are buying new the Antec will have a warranty, it's up to you if it's worth the extra money.

You could better go with a TruePower New 650/750W for the same price.

Noisy and noisier! Warning on the Quattro - the one I had used really stiff cable sleeves. One that I bent to plug in broke the plug because the sleeve was pushing on it so hard.

Performance on both are good.
