Antec has launched Phantom 500, the latest addition to its popular Phantom power supply line specially designed for silent computing. Building upon the original Phantom fanless PSU, Phantom 500 uses hybrid fan technology that allows PC users to balance high-power performance with quiet computing. Phantom 500 features ultra-high efficiency circuitry (85% efficient) that reduces power consumption and excess heat, and is ATX12V v2.01 compliant, ensuring compatibility with the newest motherboards from all leading vendors. For greater system stability, dedicated circuit design delivers the maximum specified wattage for each output – 12V x2, 3V and 5V, with no combined power limitations. Phantom 500 also comes equipped with four serial ATA power connectors and a PCI Express graphics card connector for high-end graphics cards. Phantom is currently available for an estimated street price of $ 199 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors.

Antec, Inc., the leading manufacturer of computer hardware and accessories
for the upgrade and build your own (BYO) markets, has launched Phantom 500, the
latest addition to its popular Phantom power supply line specially designed for
silent computing.

Building upon the original Phantom fanless PSU, Phantom 500 uses hybrid fan
technology that allows PC users to balance high-power performance with quiet
computing. The 500 Watt power supply operates completely silently and fanlessly
until its internal temperature reaches a pre-determined user-selected value. At
that point, the fan turns on to maintain adequate cooling for higher loads.
Users are able to select the temperature at which the fan turns on to fit
individual computing needs. Phantom 500 is also equipped with specially designed
internal heatsinks and a chassis heatsink for maximum heat dissipation.

Phantom 500 features ultra-high efficiency circuitry (85% efficient) that
reduces power consumption and excess heat, and is ATX12V v2.01 compliant,
ensuring compatibility with the newest motherboards from all leading vendors.
The power supply also includes a 24-and-20-pin adapter connector with a
detachable 4 pin section for 20 pin backwards compatibility with older
motherboards.

For greater system stability, dedicated circuit design delivers the maximum
specified wattage for each output – 12V x2, 3V and 5V, with no combined power
limitations. Phantom 500 also comes equipped with four serial ATA power
connectors and a PCI Express graphics card connector for high-end graphics
cards.

“Antec pioneered fanless power supply technology and continues to innovate in
the field of silent computing with the launch of Phantom 500,” said Scott
Richards, Antec worldwide vice president of sales and marketing. “Phantom 500
provides the silence of a fanless power supply with the added power necessary
for today’s PC user. Whether it be for a gamer, home theater PC enthusiast or
regular user, Phantom 500’s customized design will fit each individual’s unique
computing needs.”

Phantom is currently available for an estimated street price of $ 199 through
major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. It is backed by Antec’s Quality
3-Year Warranty. For additional product information and full technical
