Antec CP-850 850W Power Supply Review

ThinkComputers
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Final Thoughts When it comes to power supplies it’s all about performance and how the stable the rails are. As you can see from the test the CP-850 is definitely more stable than the Truepower 1000W. Reading other reviews of the CP-850 it looks like it outperforms many high-end power supplies out there, which is very impressive. It looks like this new CPX form factor and dual PCB layout really give you the performance you need.
  • Pros: – Great performance, – Partly modular, – New form factor allows for better cooling and dual PCB layout, – Price
  • Cons: – The CPX form factor will only fit into 3 cases (currently)

  • Summary: The Antec CP-850 is a superlative power supply by almost any standard. Its electrical performance is up at the level of its more expensive brethren, the Signature 650 and 850, and Seasonic's flagship, the M12D-850 : Voltage regulation is extremely tight for all the lines at all loads, and the ripple noise is amazingly low.

Antec CP-850 Power Supply Review

Hardware Secrets
15 June 2009
  • Summary: First of all, please accept our sincere apologies for publishing wrong results before ( ). This power supply has a very good efficiency between 84.6% and 85.8% if you pull up to 60% from its labeled capacity (i.e., up to 510 W). If you pull 80% of its maximum capacity (i.e., 680 W) efficiency was still decent at 82.7%. But at full load (850 W) efficiency dropped to 79.5%.

Antec CP-850 850W

  • Excerpt: The PS/2 form factor has been with us for a long, long time now. And for the most part, our power supplies have conformed to this twenty plus year old form factor, even as they grew more and more powerful. This has led to kilowatt power supplies in long, heavy cases that were hard to cool and cramped for their powerful innards.

Review Antec CP-850

Traficantes de Hardware
13 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Esta fuente de alimentación Antec CP-850 tiene una eficacia muy buena, tal y como especifica el fabricante (certificado 80PLUS), se sitúa entorno al 84 %, unas décimas menos cuando llevamos la carga por encima del 80%. Lo que si nos ha queda bien claro es el excepcional sistema de refrigeración de la PSU, su ventilador de 120mm no ha dejado que la PSU superara los 50º a plena carga, es algo sorprendente.
  • Pros: Voltajes muy ajustados y estables, Muy silenciosa, Certificado 80PLUS (alta eficiencia "bronce"), Refrigeración excepcional, Número de conexiones, Potencia superior a los 850w, Cableado mallado y de calidad, Modular, Packing y presentación
  • Cons: Compatibilidad exclusiva con cajas Antec
