The very first time i saw red stripes was almost 20 years ago on an black racing car which kinda left me wondering as to why that was, i mean it's not like the appearance of the car improved at all so why? Since then I’ve seen people place stripes on the cars from American muscle cars like the Viper up to the more mainstream Hyundai Tiburon like if it was a way of them to gain more power. In any case although i never did understand that trend a time came, which never thought possible, when i also encountered it on a hardware component, specifically a power supply unit by Antec almost 2 years ago, the Quattro 1000W. Now two years later we have chance to look at yet another power supply by Antec, once again with stripes on it, the TruePower Quattro 1200W.

Compared to the Quattro 1000W we had on our test bench a while back the TruePower Quattro 1200W comes with minor improvements and of course a larger output by a full 200W allowing you to feed even the most demanding graphics cards in Quad SLI/CrossfireX. The TruePower Quattro 1200W also comes in a special version targeted towards hardcore overclockers named TruePower Quattro 1200 O.C. featuring two large power regulators for adjusting both the speed of the rear 80mm fan and the +12V rail voltage. Since the differences between these two models are is slim to none we didn't take a look at the O.C version but as you will see later on the normal version performed like a charm.
