Have you ever built your very own PC, piece by piece? If so, there's a good chance that you've heard of Antec. These guys make some of the best PC enclosures and power supplies in the industry, and even if you selected other components, you probably came across Antec gear while shopping. But as the years have flown by, Antec has grown tired of just sticking with convention. To remedy that, the company is branching out and creating something entirely new: a Rockus audio brand. Soundscience is the name of the newly formed subsidiary of Antec, with the new Rockus 3D being the spin-off's first product.... Read more...
Antec launched the High Current Gamer series of PSUs with five models. This series offers users the high current capability favored by high-power users, as well as over current protected +12V rails with High Current functionality.  The High Current Gamer PSUs also include a 135 mm double-ball bearing fan. The series includes two top-end models, the HCG-750 and HCG-900, which offer 750 and 900-watts of Continuous Power, respectively. Three additional models in the series, the HCG-620, HCG-520 and HCG-400, offer 620, 520 and 400-watts of Continuous Power. Antec Rolls Out High Current Gamer Series... Read more...
The custom gaming PC business is still booming, and people are still looking for ways to get creative and make their own builds unique. Antec has been a long-time case and power supply maker, and the company's newest chassis is definitely one of the more interesting ones that have been introduced in recent years. It's called the LanBoy Air, and it's an open-air chassis that is designed quite differently from most. The case uses top-to-bottom mesh construction, which provides for tons of airflow. There are also five 120mm fans and space for ten more, and since it's huge, you can fit up to 11 total... Read more...
The race for higher wattage power supplies has finally reached a tipping point where it's no longer feasible to keep cranking out higher rated units. Instead, PSU makers have shifted their focus to other areas in the PSU design process, most notably in efficiency. With that in mind, Antec becomes the latest to release a new line of 80 PLUS Gold certified power supplies. Antec says their new High Current Pro lineup uses a unique full-bridge phase-shift topology for fast response time and high efficiency without the high pitched whine that's all too common in higher powered PSUs. The new series comes... Read more...
Right now, my production PC is humming along under my desk. It’s built into a massive Antec P193 case, which is built like a tank. It’s relatively quiet, especially since I removed the 200mm side fan. As a hardware reviewer, my lab testing seems to revolve around large cases. I’ve got several test systems built into three Coolermaster Cosmos 1000s and a Cosmos 1000S. Moving these systems around takes some care, since it would be easy to throw out a back; dropping one on your foot would be no joy, either. I also have four other systems that are occasionally used for product testing, but mostly used... Read more...

Finding the right chassis for a system build is like setting up the foundation before building out the design of your computer and working your craftsmanship into the intricate details of component selection and configuration. Start with a good foundation that caters to your build requirements and you're bound to have a better overall end result when you hit the power switch to boot up for the first time. And though the average enthusiast might choose a larger full tower case with real estate to spare, for many there is also beauty in smaller, more space-efficient designs. We've covered our share...

In July, Symantec opened its 2009 security products to public beta, promising that they would no longer be the performance hogs they have been in the past. You may know that Symantec's latest versions of their security products have been criticized over their memory footprint and CPU usage. Of course, there's also the activation issue (the software must be activated), but that's another point of contention. So this year Symantec focused on speed and resources, calling it a "zero-impact" performance goal. And on Tuesday Symantec announced the launch of its 2009 line, highlighting the following bullet...

Early last year, Antec launched their gaming line of cases with the Antec Nine Hundred - instantly garnering praise throughout the PC enthusiast crowd.  It's main claim to fame was the complete openess of the front bezel, using perforated bays and 120mm fans to keep airflow rushing inside.  Also notable was the expansive interior, bottom-mounted power-supply unit, and oversized "Big Boy" 200mm fan placed at the top that allowed some massive cooling over the CPU socket area.  We were able to take a look at the Nine Hundred ourselves and were pretty impressed overall, although we noted...
