The Antec High Current Gamer HCG-750 750W Power Supply stands out because of the special high current connectors & heavy-duty cabling. This Power Supply is also certified to meet NVIDIA SLI, ATI CrossFire & 80 PLUS BRONZE requirements. This is a rock solid Power Supply with the hardcore gamer in mind.
isn't it ironic that you need to download the manual when you don't have a pc because you are building it whit this psu
anyway its a good all rounder in my eyes for the average user,not as if the person buying it is gunna run quad sli on it anyway !!!
The TruePower New series is better. More or less the same ripple voltage and efficiency, but tighter voltage regulation and modular cable connections. But they stop at 750W while there is an HCG 900W. But the HCG 900W is way overpriced - the Corsair TX950 is a better investment.
How can you call this a Kickass product if you arent even testing IF the PSU can deliver its labelled wattage, becouse your system consumes only about 500 Watt load, and if the PSU has UVP, OVP, SCP and OPP are working correctly. Also, the voltage on the 3,3V line is rather low, but still within ATX specs.
Im not really convinced sorry.
Modular is not the be all and end all.( MODULAR = loss of amps fact!! )
No. The crap you're saying got spread around the internet by PC Power & Cooling. They stated that modular cables have more resistance causing a VOLTAGE drop, not ampere drop. This is true in the case of cheaper power supplies but if you look at high end modular power supplies such as the Seasonic M12D platform (XFX Black Edition power supplies), Seasonic X platform, Corsair AX series (the 750W/850W actually are Seasonic X based) and even the Seasonic M12II platform, voltage regulation is good but excellent on the XFX BE and Seasonic X PSUs.
hey wheres ur manners
Its not a loss in ampere, it'll technically just lower the voltage a little. The modular connection creates a miniscule bit of resistance so the voltage lowers on the rest of the powercircle.
But its not noticable anyway.
Yes, this is try but if done correctly it really shouldn't make that much of a difference. Modular is not for everyone, but it's convenient and it does mean less clutter inside the case.
Hey can handle my system? I have a Antec earthwatts 800w & burned out in 1 year. I can get this cheap here. The systhem its down here on the signature. Thanks
Yes, it should be more than enough for your setup. Also, I would recommend contacting Antec and a replacement/upgrade for your earthwatts PSU.
Ok Rodney I will do it. Thanks!
the corsair HX750 is much much better: 62A on the 12V rail, modular and 80+ silver. and maybe does not fall at 3.07V on the 3.3V rail
jeez..continuously use 750W, electric bill, Hello there pay me!
Well, it's not using 750 watts all the time. It depends on the hardware that's installed in the system and the demand on the PSU from this install hardware.
oh yes i know but using 750W continuously is not gonna help the electric bill, i got a 850W PSU with 80+ Standard and the next month i had my mom bitching about electric bill going up lol
When will these be available? I need a new PSU for my Folding@Home rig, goina load it up with a 9800GT, a 8800GTS, and a GTS 450.
Should be available very soon (next week or so) in the major resellers.
I wouldnt buy it because its not modular
Yup. I wonder why it`s not modular as well..
Antec have always made cheap power supplies, just this time they aren't skimping on components.
If you're looking for high-performance, modular power from Antec, you'll be interested in our High Current Pro series of PSU's. Here's a blog post about them:
Multiple rails isn't such a downfall, but I do prefer single volt rail PSU. But regardless, this is a good product for most users.
Wow Rodney, I'm impressed. You covered absolutely everything about this power supply. Stunning review.
so when the PSU is mounted, the antec logo and the 750w sign will be upsidedown?... i think they overlook this little detail...
Really depends on how the PSU is installed and usually you'll never see the fan because it will be installed at the bottom of the case with the fan side pointing down so it can intake cool air from outside the case.
The only reason i won't be getting one of these.. multiple rails..
Well, since this PSU have high current connectors & heavy-duty cabling the quad rails are wicked powerful. These rails come with a high OCP or Over current protection set point. So in fact the +3.3V & +5V rails are 38A (25A) each and there are four high current +12V rails and each rail is 53A (40A), but a combined maximum output of 62.5A or 750W(12V x 62.5A).
I hope to post the Video Review later this evening :)
