Introduction & Packaging


Antec High Current Pro PlatinumWhen you think of Antec power supplies Seasonic instantly come to mind as they’ve been the OEM producer of a significant chunk of Antec’s products. However, when it comes to Antec’s extremely high end “High Current Pro” (HCP) platinum series, they actually use Delta Electronics. This is fairly interesting because Delta Electronics haven’t really had a presence in the consumer market for quite some time, instead they’ve focused mainly on the enterprise and server power supply market where the big money is. Whatever deal Antec struck up they’ve done well to get their HCP series made by Delta Electronics, inevitably this means they will hold a significant premium but in return you quite literally get a server-class power supply in a consumer package. Today we are taking a look at Antec’s HCP 850 power supply which is a fully modular and 80 Plus Platinum rated power supply. Right off the bat you might be surprised with just how big Antec’s HCP 850 is but the reason for that is simple: all that performance and quality requires additional components over a standard consumer power supply. If the fact Delta Electronics make Antec’s HCG 850 wasn’t enough to convince you, then the 7 year warranty definitely should. Let’s take a look at Antec’s HCG 850 and see exactly how it fares in our review!
