Antec EarthWatts 750W Power Supply Review

Antec is a staple in the power supply market around the world. Its Earthwatts line was introduced last year to target the green computing market. This line is designed to be sans no-frills, aside from partial modularity and 80PLUS certification. This SLI-certified, quad-12V-rail unit sports plenty of connectivity for its wattage, with nine SATA and nine device connectors in addition to its PCI-Express cables. ThinkComputers takes a look at this unit in this review.
