This psu is designed very well. It comes with black color which looks superb on the psu and can attract anybody. It has honeycomb form factor which comes in psu double its price. So this was something new done by Antec. It also has metal shield over the 120mm double ball bearing fan to prevent any foreign stuff entering the psu which can degrades its life. Well if we look at the price of it and the design it offers then we can conclude it’s a fair deal.

Antec BP350PS psu Build
First when we hold this psu we were like man this is some heavy stuff. After looking at its design we were interested to look at its internal beauty so we started unscrewing it. We find that pcb was placed directly over the bottom panel which we didn’t expect in terms of general safety. Heavy duty capacitors are provided for a better efficiency. The major flaw which we found in this were there were no power cable provided so you have to buy a new one. This psu consists all major connectors such as a 24pin connector and a 8pin connector which can be split to two 4*4 pin connector for compatibility with old motherboards. It also has a 6pin Pci-E, 3 sata and 3 molex cables. We were astonished to see a floppy cable too which we didn’t except in this modern time. It would be better if antec didn’t added floppy cable and could provide the power cable instead.
We tried this psu at full load and it was at pretty decent temperature. We believe the 1200mm Fan performs its duty very well and has the capability to cool this psu and maintain it at a good temp. The psu also didn’t make much of noise under full load. The structure of this psu also maintains good airflow inside. We can conclude that this psu will run cool enough under heavy load.

This low profile psu retails at a price of 2000 INR. If you want to build a pc for moderate usage and low profile gaming then you can consider it. Well if you going to do heavy gaming and editing stuff then please look at something with more output and 80 plus bronze certified. This psu is great, comes at a reasonable price and is very good for a moderate user.
