  • Summary: Great power supply would've hoped that it had a bigger amount of wattage capacity but other than that It's a great power supply. I got it on sale for 84.99$ so it was definitely an attractive buy.
  • Pros: Modular, Bronze
  • Cons: wattage and price

  • Summary: After price matching it and the mail in rebate($15) at the time, this came out to $55, before taxes and postage for the rebate. Antec does not build their own power supply so it is important to determine who is the manufacturer for a particular model they offer. The link below is a good start in determining the manufacturer for various power supplies.
  • Pros: -Modular, -Got it at a great price, -Quality power supply made by Seasonic
  • Cons: -None at the moment

  • Summary: The HCG-520M is a very reliable power supply, as I have seen from my friend's builds. This PSU provides as much power as I need for my Asus Geforce GTX 660 ti, and 3570K.
  • Pros: Modular, Good design.
  • Cons: None.

  • Pros: Great build quality. Heavy!

  • Summary: I'm using this in my new i7 build and it's been running great. very quiet and very little heat coming out of it. Antec could be better with their rebates. I'm expecting a $20 rebate I mailed in almost 2 months ago and I haven't even received an email acknowledging that my form was sent in. My Gigabyte and MSI rebates had electronic tracking features and I already received the money back, meanwhile I have no idea what Antec is doing.
  • Pros: 2 months in my system and running stable so far, Extremely quiet, Very little heat coming off back of fan, lots of spare cables
  • Cons: - 2 months later, no word on my rebate.

  • Summary: I've been using the PSU steady for 3 months now, it works great, is whisper quiet, gives off absolutely no heat, and the modular design is wonderful in terms of organization and looks. Some modular PSUs come with single component cables in addition to multiple component cables, so those of us with very minimal systems do not have to deal with the extra dangling sata/molex connectors. This one has only multiple component cables.
  • Pros: Unit and cabling look pleasing., Whisper quiet., Very little heat.
  • Cons: No single component cables.
