CP SERIES POWER SUPPLY

For this review we will be using the Antec CP-850, a modular 850 watt power supply. Compared to the Antec Signature 850, it is 1" narrower, 1.3" taller and 0.8" deeper (mainly due to the external 120mm fan).


The CP series is a proprietary design that offers some serious thermal, and therefore acoustic advantages. The interior components are split between two circuit boards, one on the top and one on the bottom. This gives the various components plenty of breathing room. In addition, the 120mm fan has a direct path to the outside which is huge advantage over units with bottom-mounted fans.


To accommodate the larger CP power supply, the back of the power supply mount needs to be enlarged by removing a metal cover.
