Antec HCG 620W (13)

The 550-650W market of power supplies is highly competitive these days with it being the “sweet spot” for gaming systems. These “gaming power supplies” should have enough wattage to comfortably power most single and dual GPU systems with a relatively power hungry overclocked CPU and all the other parts required for a gaming system (multiple storage drives, lots of fans and so on). Antec have a series of power supplies specifically designed for this under their High Current Gamer series. The particular model we have here today is the Antec High Current Gamer 620W power supply.

This power supply from Antec captures the sweet spot of the market perfectly with a decent 620 watts of power over a single 12 volt rail, a rugged gamer-looking design, all the industrial-grade protections to keep your gaming PC safe as well as 80 Plus Bronze efficiency and 135mm cooling fan. Additionally it comes with a semi-modular design to allow you to keep cable management under control and only use the cables that you need to use. As it is being thrown into a highly competitive marketplace it has competitive pricing to match. As with most Antec power supplies, the higher end ones at least, this power supply is OEM produced by Seasonic. Let’s proceed with this review and find out how the Antec High Current Gamer 620W power supply performs.

    It’s all the PSU 95% of people will ever need. Why cough up for a gold or platinum certified PSU? You’ll never be able to recoup the extra money spent on that PSU on your electricity bill.
    While it is important to use a quality, efficient PSU, the bronze, silver,gold & platinum rating is more about marketing and the excuse to charge more. It all means very little to the end user but a lot of purchasers base their purchase on high wattage & colour certification alone.
    I would’ve liked to have seen the main cap a 105 deg. rated Nippon Chemi-con instead of 85 but that makes little to no difference.
