Antec's Booth

Antec celebrates 25 years in the business of producing chassis, power supplies and other accessories and peripherals.

Antec demonstrated the raw power output of its 1200W High Current Pro PSU, which was able to sustain two different systems, each of which had dual high-end graphics cards.

A power measurement tool allowed visitors to see for themselves the total power provided by the Antec PSU.

For gamers, the High Current Gamer Plus improves on the original by adding modular cable management to this 80 PLUS Bronze product.

Antec's CP series ranges from 850 to 1000W, all of which are 80 PLUS certified. Its selling point however is the unique 120mm PWM fan attached to the outside of the PSU unit.

This PSU with a rather interesting exterior design is a mockup of Antec's upcoming 80 PLUS Platinum PSU. It's not yet ready but Antec told us the exterior design is mostly finalized.

Antec has launched new 140mm fans touted to be extremely quiet, due to its rubber mounts that reduce vibrations.

Antec's high-end liquid cooling system comes with a cooler fan at the radiator. Compatible with all current AMD and Intel processors.

The latest version of Antec's Sonata, Sonata IV keeps the piano-like finish of the series. A silicone base helps to keep the internal noise of the chassis inside for quiet computing.

This is the upcoming Solo II, which is also part of the Sonata family. There are few details revealed besides the general look, but you can expect more sound-deadening panels and silicone base to reduce noise. You can also catch a glimpse of the new 140mm TrueQuiet fans.
