Antec CP-850 for HX650 (tri sli 470's)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
since the member who wanted to trade my HX650 for his TX850 pulled out

would the CP-850 be any good?
I know it doesn't use ATX form factor, but I have a custom case that I"m building and I can still modifiy it to fit

JG's review on the CP-850 looks promising

but since i'm planning tri sli 470's in the future, its been verified by twocables and phaedurus that the tX850 would be able to power tri sli 470, but waht about the antec CP-850

cheers

And it's cheap, and runs cool, and quiet(er)... but then you already know that I'm sure.

As to your question of whether it would drive three 470s I'd say definitely (not because I say so, but b/c it's actually on the list of SLIZone's certified PSU's for tri-470's). I'm sure there are other units that are not on there that would work... but the ones that make the list are a lock.
