Antec has always been known for making very reliable power supplies. They have done something a little interesting with their CP-Series power supplies though. They are designed differently so they are larger than most power supplies, which means they will only fit in certain cases. Those cases include Antec’s Twelve Hundred, P183, and P193. The larger size does allow for a better internal design, but is that worth limiting what cases you can put the power supply in? Antec has sent us their 850W version of the CP-Series, let’s put it to the test and see if it’s worth it!
The CP-850 comes in a nice retail box. On the front there is a picture of the power supply and on the back there is a list of features.
Opening the box up we find everything nicely packed inside. You have the CP-850 power supply, a bag a modular cables, power cable, and a product overview pamphlet.
