Antec Phantom 500W Review

Published by

Antec Phantom 500W is the most powerful power supply in Antec's series of passively cooled PSUs. By using passive cooling the noise is kept at a minimum and this is something many users appreciate. With Phantom 500W Antec has chosen to add a fan though, in other words it is not completely passive. Or to be even more precise, it is passive as long as it doesn't need better cooling and only then the fan starts to spin.

At the first glimpse inside the box it may look a bit lean: Manual, 4 screws, a power cord and the power supply. And that's really all you need unless you're after a bunch of stuff for added value, but this power supply is most of all for those who really know what they want; silence.
