Antec CP-850 850W PSU Review

[QUOTE]Antec has made a bold move in releasing their own power supply form factor standard, and it goes without saying that the battle will be an uphill one for them. After all, how many bajillions of ATX cases are out there that can't take a CPX sized unit? I have to be honest though... if I didn't have a Twelve Hundred I'm reviewing for next week, and had just load tested this unit without said case, I'd probably want to go buy one just to have a case to go with it. If the CPX form factor catches on, the CP-850 will be flat out untouchable. It is completely unmatched by any ATX unit on the market I can think of. You'd have to spend twice as much as this thing costs to find the next best thing, performance wise.[/QUOTE]

Antec CP-850 Power Supply

[QUOTE]
[FONT=Consolas][SIZE=3]"Instead of releasing a longer 850 W power supply, Antec decided to build a taller unit. Because of it is bigger, CP-850 only fits a few cases from Antec (Twelve Hundred, P183 and P193). Is it a better solution that regular-sized units? Let's see."[/SIZE][/FONT]

In the works. But it will be small.
