    LINK

    [H] has the review of the 1300W platinum Antec up. Lives up to the promise of it's potential. They say it trades blows with the Enermax Platimax 1350 and comes out slightly ahead. Not bad company to be in. :thumbsup:

    One thing I don't see is the ATX24 connections. I counted 20 connectors on the motherboard connector socket. Where do the other 4 connectors come in?

    Extra +12V pins for ATX24 are connected to either one 16pin receptacle.

    The mainboard cable has two connectors at the power supply end... the big black one, and a four pin red one like the PCI-E and EPS cables have.

    I wish one review or the other would show a pic of the MB cable plugged into the PSU. Maybe when OW does his 1300W HCP review.

    I wanted to find a picture like that...

    Anyway, what the cable looks like can give an idea. Kind of like your Seasonic X.
