Antec NeoEco 620 or EarthWatts 650 for SB GTX560 build? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Power supplies have several dimensions of quality/performance.

Electrical performance, ie. Ripple, transient load response, and voltage regulation, which impact how much you can overclock your components, and if outside of acceptable levels can affect system stability.

Efficiency, which determines how much power/heat is wasted by the power supply and will affect your power bill. Power factor is also grouped in with it though it's less important to home users.

And build quality, including quality of components and how well the soldering is done.




The NeoECO 620C is a rebrand of an early version of what would become the SeaSonic S12II Bronze 620W. Only differences between the Antec and the SeaSonic is that the Antec is less efficient, has slightly looser v-reg, has a cheaper exterior and fan, and is cheaper. Its electrical performance is very good, tight voltage regulation and ripple under 40mV on the +12V and under 25mV on the +5V and +3.3V. It has an 80PLUS standard efficiency certification. Build quality is above average, but not exceptional.

The Earthwatts 650W is a unit made by Delta Electronics. Performance is a grab bag, with very good voltage regulation but mediocre ripple (>80mV on the +12V). It has the 80PLUS standard efficiency certification. Build quality is very good; Delta is renowned for having meticulous solder work, though in this case the capacitors could be higher quality.



Both are good units, but for an overclocker the NeoECO is the better choice.
