Hardware & Documentation


Pulling the accessories for the SP1300, and we have a few essential items of note.

  • 3x Velcro cable management straps (Antec stylized)
  • 12x plastic zip ties
  • 4x PSU mounting screws

It is a PSU, so there's not a ton to expect as far as accessories, but I do think that the Velcro straps are an excellent addition to help make for better-looking cable management over zip ties. Antec also gets a little free marketing here, as anyone who sees the straps used in areas that will likely be visible will have their branding there.

Here we have the cable package, which is a fabric bag containing all the modular cables for the SP1300 PSU.

Here we have the cable set in its entirety, it is equipped as follows:

  • Main AC input cable
  • 24-pin ATX cable
  • 2x 4+4-pin EPS cable
  • 6x PCIe cable (2x 6+2 PCIe connector)
  • 3x SATA peripheral cables (14x total SATA connectors)
  • 2x PATA peripheral cables (5x total PATA connectors)
  • PATA to 2x SATA adapter
  • PATA to FDD adapter
  • OC Link cable

As previously stated, this cable and connector allocation is stout and should support any higher-performance rig, up to and including an insane render workstation.
