The Bottom Line

Hopefully, Antec’s cable management will pave the way for other, similarly clever solutions down the road. The Neopower 480, which can be used universally, ensures that there is less cable clutter inside the case because peripheral connectors can be hooked up separately. Even PCI Express is factored in. Cables that you don’t need are not connected to the power supply in the first place. The Neopower boasts two separate +12 Volt rails to ensure a reliable power supply. Also, there are numerous additional safety switch circuits that are included to prevent power fluctuations and overloading.
