Antec NeoEco 620C PSU Review

Antec NeoEco 620C is an efficient PSU for extreme systems. It fulfills all your requirement and offers constant energy to each component. This psu features an 80 PLUS BRONZE certification which means more efficiency. It is further supported by a 120mm fan. Antec NeoEco also has PFC (power factor correction) that maintains the power output quality with low noise. Even after having a big size fan it does not really produce much sound on extreme usage. Antec in NeoEco series emphasizes more on the safety. The primary feature consists of industrial level protection that prevents short circuit and also protect the system from over voltage. Aim here is to maintain the stable power requirement with reliable output. It is an 80 Plus Bronze certified power unit which offers around 60 to 70% more effective output on any system. 80 Plus simply means the power supply is 80% more efficient compared to the regular one in the market. PFC optimizes the electric power used by removing harmonics. Something that removes the disruption of electrical power. This is most effective in preventing overloading for increased life of all hardware. Below is the short list of features in you which you can see what exactly Antec NeoEco 620C offers. It is loaded with a custom build CircuitShield technology which gives you industrial grade protection on your existing system.

The first one among them is OCP. It is a kind of circuit breaker which stops the supply of extra current which generates heat and increases the risk of fire or damage. Excessive load is properly stopped by adding more life to the components. The second one is OVP which is similar like OCP. It controls excessive voltage spike that appears due to power surge protection from damage. Each hardware in a system is designed to bear an amount of voltage. Excessive voltage can damage them easily. If you have a psu like Antec NeoEco 620C, then you have to worry less. The third one is UVP that maintains the amount of voltage required. Less voltage supply results in poor performance and also hampers hardware circuit. The fourth one is OPP. Sometimes more power is supplied to your system instead of the required power. The extra power can cause shutdown or hardware damage. This feature kicks the excess current and maintains a regular supply. And the last feature is SCP that protects the system components from short circuit. This entire thing is required for any system. Either it is a regular desktop or gaming, you must go with a powerful psu like Antec NeoEco 620C. Spending a bit high amount will help you to save life of your exclusive hardware.
