In the year of their 31st anniversary, Antec Inc., leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, present numerous innovations in the course of this year's CeBIT exhibition in Hanover, Germany. From 20th to 24th March 2017, Antec’s new products will be showcased at booth xx in Hall 15, booth D20. Among the novelties are the latest models from the Performance and Gaming series of Chassis, the innovative Antec All-in-one liquid coolers and, last but not least, a new line of power supplies.
The latest addition to Antec’s line of Gaming chassis is the GX909: Featuring a military style with a green front panel and a grid design, the sturdy case (made with 0,6 mm cold-rolled steel) comes with two built-in 120 mm green intake fans in the front and one green 120 mm exhaust fan in the rear. The attractive fins on the top panel allow for better ventilation as they can be opened by 10 and 20 degrees and allow for a better airflow. Internally, the chassis offers lots of space for graphics cards with up to 400 mm in length, seven expansion slots, two 3,5” HDDs and two 2,5”SSDs. The GX909 supports a 240 mm radiator on the top, a 360 mm radiator in the front and an optional 120 mm radiator in the back. Furthermore, it features a chamber design, which separates the power supply from the other components to minimize heat and reduce system noise. The front panel offers audio jacks, fan control switches, 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 and power / reset button.
Another Cebit highlight will be Antec’s new EarthWatts and Neo Eco Power Supplies: The EarthWatts GOLD PRO is one of the most efficient PSU series ever created. With an 80 PLUS® GOLD rating, one of the highest efficiency marks for power supplies, this PSU achieves up to 91% efficiency and achieves savings unheard of from other power supplies. By using the EarthWatts GOLD PRO, users can reduce their electricity bill up to 20 per cent. A 3 year Antec Quality warranty, hybrid modular cabling, a whisper-quiet 120mm fan controlled by Antec’s renowned Thermal Manager and CircuitShield™ Industrial Grade protection make EarthWatts GOLD PRO one of the best choices available. The PSUs are available with 550 and 650 watts.
Visitors at the Antec booth will also be able to check out the new Mercury line of all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. Available in three sizes, the Mercury 120 (120 mm x 120 mm radiator), the Mercury 240 (240 mm x 120 mm radiator), and the Mercury 360 (360 mm x 120 mm radiator), the series is built around a new pump, which features higher coolant pressure, lower-fan noise, and a unique power input, which lets the user either plug it to a 3-pin fan header, or SATA power (through an included adapter cable). The pump-block also features three LEDs, which indicate coolant temperature. Blue indicates <48°C, green indicates 49-60°C, and red indicates >60°C. Each of the included fans takes PWM input from the pump-block, and spin between 900-1800 RPM.
