Antec NeoPower NeoHE 650 Blue rev. A2 (650W)
This review concludes with one more NeoPower series product which is rather unusual for Antec. This company obviously puts functionality and characteristics above exterior design. The NeoPower 650 Blue is the only product from Antec to have a highlighted fan. By the way, you should not confuse it with the NeoHE 650 model that doesn’t have the suffix Blue. The highlighting is not the only difference between these two models.
The PSU is manufactured by Seasonic.
I’ve got a boxed version of the PSU.
The NeoPower Blue is a special product in the NeoPower series as it is the only one to be cooled by a 120mm rather than 80mm fan.
The highlighting is quite original: the LEDs are built not into the fan but into the PSU heatsinks. When the PSU is installed into a system case, these LEDs cast three beams of light down to the mainboard and CPU cooler.
Like the other NeoPower series products, the NeoHE 650 Blue has detachable cables. There are five universal connectors for them at the back panel.
The internal design resembles the TruePower Trio rather than other NeoPower models. It’s all right because, as I wrote above, both series are based on the same platform. The heatsinks of the NeoHE 650Blue are just optimized for a 120mm fan.
It’s easy to see the highlighting LEDs which are fastened in the holes of the heatsink ribs. By the way, both heatsinks of the PSU are identical. One is just turned by 180 degrees relative to the other.
