Antec Neo Power 500W vs OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W

Hello,

I recently bought a MSI R5770 Hawk and I will be overclock it. I need a new power supply for it.

I'm looking at these two: Antec Neo Power 500W ($39.99 after coupon) and OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W ($49.99 after rebate). They both have good raxting on newegg.com, but will 500W be enough for my system?

Which one would you guys recommend?

Here is my system:

HP Pavilion p6280t PC
• Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
• Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad processor Q8400 [2.66GHz, 4MB L2, 1333MHz FSB]
• 6GB DDR2-800MHz SDRAM [3 DIMMs]
• 640GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
• MSI R5770 Hawk (to be OC'd)

Thank you in advance.

  1. Yes either will be enough power for your rig.
    They are both good the Antec has a 5yr warranty though.


    .
  2. I would go for the Fatal1ty. It's a quality modular PSU with a very interesting price. The unit from Antec is an old unit (Its production has been discontinued by Antec some time ago). If you like Antec, go for a Antec EarthWatts 500W (non-modular) or Antec TruePower New 550W (Modular).
  3. Thank you everyone for the comments

    Are you aware that your running your memory in single channel mode and not dual channel mode? That hurts your performance.


    Zipzoomflyhigh, can I switch the memory to dual channel mode? Can you give me some instructions on how to do it? Thank you. :)
  4. take out one of your 2GB dimms (make sure you leave the 2 dimms that are for dual channel, consult the motherboard manual to figure out which slots they are, usually the 2 closest to the cpu)
