looks like antec released new PSU for brick and mortar stores. i saw these today, they looked good but a bit over priced. 12v amps is from my memory and all are 80 bronze with a single non-split 12v rail...wasn't antec telling us the evils of non-split rails last year???

400w -30a on the 12v

Agree on the price but apparently aimed at enthusiasts.

they look very similar (at least the 520w & 620w) to the seasonic S12II but with larger fans. unfortunately you can get the seasonic 620w for $75+shipping...the antec 400w goes for $75+tax

$75 + Tax for a 400W PSU?.. Let me think of a right term for it... Umm, wait... Oh yeah, I got it: "Expensive"? :lol:

What's great difference about antec is "over current protection (OCP) for safety",
- Over current protection (OCP)
- Over voltage protection (OVP)
- Short circuit protection (SCP)
- Over power protection (OPP)
That's why I think it is over price (lol) - well it is a good buy.

B&M stores will always sell something for more then online.

Overall doesn't look that bad. More so if we can buy them online for a cheaper price.

The old Corsair 400CX's were better values, but, alas, they are gone.
