Having tested quite a few power supplies here at OC3D, I thought that I'd seen every imaginable style. However, the Antec Phantom is very different to the usual 'black box' or 'blinged-out' affair...
You will also notice that the Phantom 500w does not have a voltage selection switch. This is because the unit is able to detect the input voltage automatically and switch accordingly.
Looking around the side of the unit we can see a small air ventilation grill which assists in providing fresh air to some of the hotter components contained inside. Fins also stretch the length of the unit, but seem to be for visual effect more than anything else.
Antec have also included a very cool looking light strip that is illuminated when the unit is switched on. This is especially handy, as when the fan is not activated on the unit, it is impossible to know that the unit is switched on.
