Cords.. but quiet.

  • Summary: If they made the cables disconnect then you would have an incredibly awesome product that is cheat and reliable.
  • Pros: You won't hear this with your audio turned off (even with the side of the casing forced off). It suppose several graphics cards and other powerful components.
  • Cons: It's pretty annoying when you can't fit your PSU cables into your casing, so you have to take off the side of your casing and let your computer vomit out cables that you aren't using.

Switched from Corsair AX1200

  • Summary: I think a lot of times people mistaken Antec products for not having as great of quality as products from other manufacturers. I think what they miss out on, though, is that the company does is not spend as much money on unimportant aspects, while using the costs to make sure the most important...
  • Pros: Had a Corsair AX1200 for about a month, and then switched over to this power supply. The main thing with the Corsair (that I didn't like), was the connectors were way too rough/tight with the motherboard/other peripheral plugs, especially the giant 24-pin one. Everytime I tried to unplug the thin...
  • Cons: However, I must admit the shell/body quality isn't quite as nice as the Corsair AX1200. It just didn't seem as hefty or as strong. Also, the fan on the Antec is a tiny 90mm fan (I think), that's attached to the back of the PSU. Also, the grill for the fan sticks out, so it got in the way of some ...

Works great.

  • Summary: It may be coincidence, but a couple minutes after powering this baby up, the breaker switch on only MY office flipped at the same time my entire city block lost power for about 30 minutes. Haven't had any problems before or after this happened. O_O
  • Pros: Much shorter than my old 1KW by PC Power & Cooling. Semi-modular. Very quiet. Runs dual CPUs and quad GPUs.
  • Cons: Not fully modular. The string of molex plugs, for example, can't come off. Who uses molex these days? You just gotta tuck that one away somewhere. Also, even tho it's very quite, there doesn't seem to be any airflow coming out the back. Perhaps it the fan is an intake? I can't tell... but the met...

Lots of power, lots of wires..

Timothy B., Newegg

  • Summary: If you want less wires look somewhere else.
  • Pros: This PSU fully powers 2x GTX 590s and everything else just fine.
  • Cons: This PSU is not fully modular. I have a lot of extra wires sticking out the back of the case.
