    Default Antec Edge 750W review @ HardOCP and Antec Edge 650W review @ TweakTown

    One of the most prevalent companies in the consumer power supply realm, and general enthusiast PC realm, is Antec. Antec is a company that has been kicking around the PC DIY market since 1986 and in that time frame has become one of the most widely known brand names. In addition to power supplies Antec has product lines that include cases for work and play, cooling solutions, lighting, and other accessories. Over the years Antec has used a number of OEM providers for its power supplies including HEC, CWT, FSP, Enhance, Seasonic, and recently Delta. Today, we will be looking at a member of the brand new EDGE line of power supplies the EDGE 750W (EDG750) made by Seasonic.

    Today Antec introduces a new line of power supplies and if it lives up to the hype surrounding it, it is set to be a favored line for enthusiasts requiring enough power for a duo of high-end GPU's or less. The new series that we are speaking of is the EDGE series. The EDGE series sits between the TruePower Gold and High Current Pro Platinum series of power supplies. Antec's official word on the series is that, "It creates a new top class of maximum efficiency & performance within our range of PSUs with fully modular connectivity."

    These BBQ grilles over the fans really seem to be catching on lately.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    So Antec is copying Corsair who is copying BeQuiet! who stole the design from Chrysler?
    I just want to make sure I'm getting this all right.

    With that said, I gotta ask "why?" Maybe if it was a Delta with better performance I could maybe understand. Really though, didn't they learn a few years back not to muddle their lineup with so many overlapping products?

    Chrysler? Since when were they active in the barbeque industry?
