Like with many top of the line units these days, the Antec TruePower 2.0 430W has dual 12V rails, ATX12V 2.01 compliance, dedicated output circuitry, PCI Express ready, and Active PFC (Power Factor Correction). Will the new Antec TruePower 2.0 continue the legacy of the original TruePower? Up for testing today, we have the Antec TruePower 2.0 430W (TP-II 430).

Opening up the Antec packaging, we found the PSU to be well protected with bubble wrap. The other items we found were the user's manual, mounting screws, and a standard 16AWG United States power cable. Everything appeared to be in great condition and nothing was noticeably damaged during shipping from Antec. The user’s manual was very in-depth for a PSU, covering all topics from the installation process to the pin configuration for each of the different connectors. All of this information is presented in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
