    - Full range 460 watts PSU
    - Designed for AMD Athlon XP, Athlon 64, Intel P4 & EPS 12V for AMD Opteron & Intel Xeon
    - Includes ATX 20-pin to EPS 24-pin Cable Adapter
    - Energy saving Active PFC
    - Ultra quiet 12cm black 2 ball bearing fan
    - 18 dB(A) at normal load
    - Auto thermal fan control
    - Dual 12 Volt rails
    - Short circuit protection on each channel
    - Hi-efficiency- 75% at full load
    - 3.3V and 5V combned load 210W

    Antec TruePower 480W PSU (CA-017-AN)
    TruePower from Antec is the most advanced line of PC power supplies from the company that has led the way in power supply design and quality since 1986. These power supplies feature dedicated output circuitry for each voltage so that each output delivers maximum power whenever you need it. To make sure these voltages stay accurate, TruePower also includes voltage feedback circuitry to improve system stability Thanks to Antec New Low Noise Technology, system noise is substantially reduced, too. The power supply fans run at the lowest speed appropriate to load and conditions, controlled by an advanced temperature response system that outperforms previous solutions. Dedicated Fan Only power connectors allow TruePower power supplies to control the speed of case fans, too, thus reducing total system noise.

    - Dedicated output circuitry for each voltage output, overcomes the limitations of combined output of traditional design
    - Voltage Feedback to maintain accurate voltage to all components
    - Antec Low Noise Technology achieves the optimum balance between noise reduction and necessary cooling
    - ATX12V for AMD and Intel based systems including P4
    - PFC - Environmentally Friendlier
    - Two double ball bearing fans
    - Gold plated connectors

    My vote goes to Antec.

    How do you figure the Akasa would be quieter?

    I like the Akasa.

    I have only had one Antec ( so my experience is limited) and it had a terrible 12v rail...bounced all over from 11.7 to 12.2.
    My Aspire ( on the identical setup) is rock solid at 11.99v.

    Maybe I had a lemon, but the Antec didn't impress me at all.

    well both had good reviews from what i been reading the akasa did not have a problem when all rails full of components hardly a change in voltage. I can get the akasa with a very nice blue led fan which would look nice with my future mods thought. read yellow led fan and front green led and green cold cathode just above front grill will look very nice.

    Now you&#39;ve lost me.
    Making a hardware decision based on fan color seems silly to me...get the best hardware you can and use lights to tart up the case if you must.

    The intake is the 92mm one.

    I have to agree with clocker. A decision based on bling bling seems silly to me also.
