Highly Efficient Power Supply Saves Energy

The Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green Power Supply meets the Bronze level of efficiency from 80 PLUS, the most widely recognized independent standard in power-supply efficiency. With this certification, you can rest assured that the EA-500D is at least 80-percent (or greater) energy efficient, meaning you will save energy while reducing heat output and fan noise.

Help the Environment and Save Money

An Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) ensures a power factor of up to 99-percent, which reduces transmission losses and improves efficiency for power companies, making Active PFC an important feature for the environment. The EA-500D is also EUP compliant for efficiency and low, standby power consumption.

Industrial-grade Protection Circuitry Prevents Damage

With industrial-grade protection circuitry that protects both the power supply and other equipment, the EA-500D safely guards your system against short circuits, power overloads, overvoltage, and other electrical dangers. It also boasts UL, CUL, FCC, T�V, CE, CB, C-tick, CCC, and BSMI safety approvals, and an 80-millimeter low-noise fan keeps the power supply cool for extended use.

Universal Input for Increased Versatility

The Universal-Input feature allows you to automatically connect your EA-500D to any power grid in the world within 90-240 VAC without having to adjust the input-power select switch.

Assortment of Power-Supply Connectors

An assortment of power-supply connectors provides multiple options for customizing your case. The 24-pin power connector goes to the motherboard, the ATX/EPS connector allows for a dedicated power supply to the processor, and two PCI-E connectors (6-pin and 6+2 pin) are used for PCI Express graphics cards. In addition, there are connectors for hard-disk drives, floppy drives, and SATA drives.

Technical Details

Weighing four pounds, the EA-500D measures 3.4 x 5.9 x 5.5 inches (H x W x D). It has dual +12-Volt output circuits for a maximum combined output of 444 Watts.

The Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green PC Power Supply is backed by a three-year manufacturer's limited warranty.

Replacement power supply Nov. 1 2010
By pfm - Published on

I purchased this to replace an ANTEC 450 power supply. I was looking for a close match since ANTEC also made my Sonata II PC case that holds this power supply.

I made the replacement and it worked out fine.

HTPC must have Feb. 16 2011
By jml - Published on

This power supply is perfect for any HTPC. For the last 3.5 years I have been using a noisy BFG 700w in my HTPC - total overkill. I upgraded my personal pc with a big AMD 6870 which required a bigger power supply. I figured I'd go with a quiet, green psu and swap my HTPC since I was not using 2/3 of the power available. WOW, what a difference. I can barely hear the psu when the house is quiet and never when I'm watching tv. The psu costs a little more than others with similar available watts, but the low dB is what sells it for me. Do yourself a favor and "buy the best and only cry once," a mantra I live my life by.

Grrr8! Dec 10 2011
By Old Codger - Published on

Old power supply has been increasingly cantankerous by shutting down and restarting the system on it's own at extremely inopportune times. When I took it out, determined that it was not actually high enough on wattage to adequately power everything in the system. After installing this new one, everything changed for the better; Power downs stopped, and the system actually now runs quieter and responds faster to everything. I believe this is due to the old power supply starving the CPU. Am extremely happy now and wish I had done this sooner. Kudos to Amazon for the great price and free and fast shipping.

Antec EA500D June 17 2011

I needed a power supply to replace the one on my computer. I needed 3 SATA connections. This has 5. I was able to install it without any problems ( I am not very tach savy). It has 3 SATA connections on one cable and 2 on another. The power supply is very quiet- you can hardly hear it.

Great power supply Dec 31 2011

Quiet, efficient, and reliable. Everything you would expect from a reputable brand like Antec.

Don't forget that it doesn't include the power cable, so you'll need to find one if you don't have one already!
