Antec at Computex 2019: Neptune ARGB CPU Liquid Coolers, Signature Series PSUs, Katana ARGB DDR4 Memory Modules

Antec at Computex 2019 showcased a myriad of products, of which we bring you three families in this post: their Neptune ARGB CPU liquid coolers, the Signature Series of PSUs, and their Katana DDR4 memory modules.

The Neptune ARGB liquid coolers are available in either 120 mm or 240 mm AIO configurations, each packing a single or a dual fan setup (I leave it to you to guess which is which)s. These feature PWM controlled fans, have a flow rate of 1.5 L of cooling liquid per minute, feature RGb lighting (in case you hadn't noticed the ARGB in the name), and are rated for up to 40,000 H MTBF at a 25º room temperature.
The Signature series of PSUs joins Antec's previously-unveiled Signature S10 chassis, and are Antec's top of the line when it comes to power delivery. Their most efficient unit is the Signature 1000 Titanium, which, as the name implies, delivers 1000 W with 80+ Titanium-rated power efficiency. Lowering the bar slightly - but not by much - come the Signature 1000 Platinum and Signature 1300 Platinum, which deliver power at an 80+ Platinum-rated efficiency. All three power supplies feature a fully modular design, a 10-year warranty, and the same dimensions at 150*170*86mm.
Last, but not least, the Katana series of DDR4 memory modules cater to enthusiasts who want an Antec-specific memory design in their computer. The Katana feature ARGB lighting, and a subdued-design black heatsink with Antec and 7 Series embossed in a "contrasty" white. These are served up in an 2x 8 GB kit at 3600 MHz, with timings set at 18-20-20-44 and 1.35 V operating voltage.

Until Antec sort out their issue with their non-existent customer support teams Id avoid buying their products.

Its like they cant seem to decide if they are coming or going and keep the business going by releasing a new product once in a blue moon while living off its success from back in the 90s. NZXT does better cases and water cooling products and PSUs and you are definitely able to get a response from their support team should something go wrong.

They used to make some pretty good stuff. their PSUs, AIOs and Cases were pretty good. But when competition started to become fierce and everyone started branching out into newer products Antec just seemed to get swallowed up and they have never seemed to have tried to make a break for the front of the pack again.

These days when you think of a budget case, you either think coolermaster, NZXT or Corsair. Same with power supplies or AIO coolers - you got the same big names that dominate the market.

So they are even trying to do RAM now. I doubt it will be something they will keep up for long.
