Some Aesthetic Flaws
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

We found some finishing details that could be worked out by Antec. Even though we posted “flaw” on the subtitle, what we are describing now is not really a problem but just a matter of aesthetics.

First, the plastic seeving doesn’t come from inside the power supply, as you can see in Figure 5. So the wires from the motherboard power connectors are exposed while they exit the power supply housing.

By the same token the plastic sleeving doesn’t go all the way to the output connectors, see Figure 6.

We decided to disassemble this power supply to take a look inside.
