Antec introduces new non-standard PSU design

Quote:
There's a lot of importance behind the standards for desktop hardware. It helps ensure that when you buy a part, whether it's a motherboard, a hard drive or even a power supply, it'll fit in your case and (usually) work with your other hardware. Antec is breaking away from that mold, however, believing that the traditional standard for PSUs is outdated and something else needs to be done. They are introducing the CP-850 power supply, complete with a new form factor that is incompatible with traditional cases.

Good idea, but they should have made it compatible with standard cases?

This isn't a joke is it?

If I designed a PSU it would be an external one attached to the case. Much better for cooling!
