Win an Antec HCP-850, signed by the team that designed it! [Old PSU Contest]  

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Think you have the oldest Antec PSU running on the forums? Are you a member, or planning to be a member of the Antec Club on OCN? Then you might have a new PSU with your nam ...or, rather, the names of the Antec engineering team that designed it on it, heading your way!

One PSU will go to a random winner over here - the second is destined to go to a member of the Antec PSU Club in the power supplies subforum who can prove that they've got the oldest running Antec PSU of the group. You don't have to be an existing member of the club to be eligible - as long as you've at least requested membership by midnight EST on Sunday, April 3rd, you'll be able to compete with your oldest PSU.

If you're already in the Antec Club or are joining up, and think you might have the oldest Antec PSU around running, post what you have in this thread! This thread is not where to enter the random drawing.

We'll work on that process - but note, to win, you must be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that you do actually own the PSU in question and that is does actually work.

Definitely in? That is, if PSU's from OEM machines count?

I've got a SmartPower SP-350 from 2004 or thereabouts--but I'm sure someone's got an older one. I'm not officially entering.

Original Antec True 550W







post #7 of 43
I might just have the oldest here actually
I've got a 2003 model Antec SL220 small form factor power supply coupled with an Antec Minuet (the original model) that I got off Craigslist. This thing is crazy old, comes with very few connectors only including an old 20-pin power connector, 3 molexes and a floppy connector. I replaced it with a new 80+ Bronze 350W power supply to power some better components in the Minuet. It's up for give/trade on The Swap Meet but at the moment I do still own it and have it on the desk in front of me.

Pics & video of power-on to come soon; I'd do it now but it's 2AM PDT and I'd be pretty hard pressed to have to configure this and film a video right now.
One question, does it actually have to be shown powering a full system w/mobo and everything or can I use the paperclip method and hook up a fan or two to it to show it actually works?

Also...though the first post of the Antec PSU club has not been updated to include me on the list, here is my post asking to join made back in February (with the 350W Antec PSU for my Minuet).

EDIT: One more question... how are we going to know which of the PSUs here is the oldest? Can someone update us on who's in the lead so far? perhaps with official date, which might help.

Chipp, how are they going to determine oldest? I have an older PSU, but no invoice, so perhaps they'll go from when the model was debuted?

Thanks,

This was my very first power supply purchased in 02/03 from newegg. It powered a p4 2.8 oc'ed to 3.1ghz for most of its life running 24/7. It is the Antec 480w Truepower version 1 with warranty seal still intact
