To the educated masses, power supplies are the necessary evil close to the top of the build list when specing out a new machine. Unfortunately, for the rest, power supplies seem to be an afterthought in the build process and often, what little budget is leftover gets used on a sub-par power supply or a case/power supply combo. I have seen too many posts in the forums from users complaining of system instabilities only to have it boil down to a weak or underrated power supply. With today’s power hungry components, having a quality power supply with enough overhead to run efficiently is more important than ever.
The Antec NeoPower 650 comes in a glossy gun metal and orange themed box touting quiet computing, customizable power, and support for dual graphics card on the front of the box. The back of the box lists some specs and connector info. The sides of the packaging list additional information about the NeoPower 650.
Opening the box reveals efficient packaging, utilizing an egg crate for protection of the NeoPower 650 The cables are packed separately on top with the NeoPower 650 nestled at the bottom. Getting it out of the box shows the bag of component cables, the Antec NeoPower 650W power supply, users manual, 5 year warranty, bag of screws and the power cable.
