The results from this review were updated today to reflect AC power and efficiency measured by our new precision power meter. The updated results did not affect our conclusions or recommendation about this power supply.

I have one of these power supplies and unfortunately, it died on me after about 5 years of service. This machine was not on 24/7 like my server is but this one died first. One of the OST capacitors started bulging. I am disappointed at the use of less than stellar components from Antec.

That's precisely why I don't approve of giving gold awards to anything without Japanese caps. At least if you re-cap them with Japanese caps, they are decent.

FWIW, the SmartPowers (Predecessor to the EarthWatts) were much worse. They used Fuhjyyu caps, and always died within 3 years. Given 24/7 use, you'd be lucky if they even lasted 1 year.
