Antec Revolutionizes Quiet Computing with Phantom Power Supply
Fremont, CA - September 14, 2004 - Antec, Inc., the leading manufacturer of computer hardware and accessories for the upgrade and build your own (BYO) markets, has launched Phantom, its first completely fanless PC power supply.

Intended for noise-sensitive PC users and specialty applications, the powerful 350 Watt unit has been completely designed from the ground up with silent, fanless operation in mind. It features ultra-high efficiency circuitry (85% efficient) that reduces power consumption and excess heat, and an aluminum casing that acts as a heatsink and eliminates the need for noisy moving parts. In addition, Phantom's compliance to the latest ATX12V v2.0 standards ensures compatibility with the newest motherboard releases from all leading vendors.

For improved system stability, Phantom includes professional grade features such as dedicated voltage outputs, advanced voltage-feedback circuitry and dual +12V output circuits to provide server-quality power. Phantom also comes equipped with two SATA connectors to power Serial ATA drives, and a special six-pin PCI Express graphics card connector for high-end graphics cards. Integrated server-grade protection features such as over-temperature, over-voltage and over-current protection guarantee system reliability.

"In the home and office, PC users are fed up with irritating PC noise. They want to play games, enjoy entertainment or concentrate on work - not be constantly distracted by the whine of a noisy computer," said Scott Richards, Antec worldwide vice president of sales and marketing. "Phantom achieves a level of silent performance that could not be achieved by a simple modification of a standard power supply design, and ensures that PC users can experience the total silence they crave without sacrificing the power and stability required for their ever-growing PC needs."

Phantom is currently available for an estimated street price of $199 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. It is backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year Warranty. For additional product information and full technical specifications, please visit
