Summary: I bought this PSU for my first build, it's very reliable, runs cool, and the cabling is very strong (you can't tear a wire by mistake), I bought Antec power supply because they are very well know for they quality work and zero error tolerance policy. And I live in Lebanon and used Shop And Ship Service from aramex to get the stuff here so if something was dead at arrival it would have been hard to me to ship it back.
Summary: I have always been a fan of the Antec product. It has never done me wrong, always ran on the cool side, and delivered ample power. This power supply continues on with the reputation Antec has left in my mind. When you compare the price to others out there, its a no-brainer. Antec reliability and durability with a good price compared to others of similar wattage.
Summary: Works Great. No complaints. I've had another Antec power supply in a computer for several years without any problems. It works so well I was able to pass it on to someone else that needed a new one when theirs broke. I have no complaints whatsoever. They use very solid parts. Not cheap. The OCZ version I bought broke within a few months.
Summary: plenty of power, cable length is great and long enough to reach from bottom of case. My only complaint is the cables are stiff and hard to work with. Also the design of the psu itself makes it where you have to mount it with fan pointing upwards.
Summary: Antec makes a great product in this area, even the lower end VP450 has been excellent and durable in my work PC. HCG900 has proven no different in my experience. Waited some time to give feedback on this unit since its the heart of my gaming system where cpu/gpu overclocks have come and gone. Going on 9 months of daily use, its been stable all along.
Summary: With this power supply, I did find one issue, With an ASUS Formula V motherboard, the two 4Pin connectors at the top of the motherboard are further apart than the wires allow with the shrink wrap/mesh cover, I had to cut the mesh back and re-shrink wrap it lower on the cables to get both pins in. Pros: 100% of what the product says it has, it has, no hassle.
