The Antec CP-850 850W power supply has a maximum wattage output of 850W. This should run most PC builds with ease, but might not be enough for power hungry graphics card setups such as SLI or Crossfire combinations. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.
The Antec CP-850 850W has an 80 Plus rating of Standard. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 80% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%. Standard is the lowest 80 Plus certificate available, but with 80% load efficiency minimums, the Antec CP-850 850W is still reliably efficient and is by no means a bad PSU choice. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 80.91%, 85.56%, and 84.17%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.
The dimensions of the Antec CP-850 850W (LxWxH) are 20cm x 18cm x 12cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The Antec CP-850 850W is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.
The Antec CP-850 850W is not designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on could potentially be noticeable and irritating, though this may only be a problem for those that require silent environments.
