The NeoLink PSU

Antec P190 NeoLink PSU

Now for the hart of the case, the NeoLink dual PSU. What Antec has done is instead of having one massive 1200 watt PSU they split the load between two small PSU’s. In this case a 650 watt PSU (on the right) for the CPU and add-in cards, and a 550watt (left) for the drives, fans, and other peripherals. Lets take a look at the specs of the NeoLink

Antec P190 NeoLink Umbilical

To get the two to power up at the same time they removed the motherboard, CPU, and PCI-e power connectors from the 550w PSU and replaced it with a two wire umbilical cord of sorts to the 650w PSU; in turn removing all molex and SATA connectors from the 650w PSU. This basically renders the both PSUs useless if separated.
