High failure rate

L T., Newegg
19 June 2015
  • Pros: 850 watts power
  • Cons: We make high end computers for high end customers and bought about 30 of these for use with our best computers that were being made for our most important customers. About 6 of them have failed in less than a year and it has hurt our relationship with these customers who expected better from us. ...

QA Problems?

Weston H., Newegg
6 June 2015
  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend buying one of these after wasting countless hours trying to troubleshoot my computer. Maybe they have improved the qa since my problems, but you are gambling with hours of your time if you get a bad unit.
  • Pros: Antec support department is reliable and honors the warranty. Works fine if you get a non defective unit.
  • Cons: I've had 3 of these now. I originally had a hcp-750 (gold) that was shutting off during gaming, then replaced by a hcp-850 (platinum) that randomly died on me. These power supplies seem to have long term reliability problems under normal usage.

  • Summary: Excellent product. About the most silent power supply I've ever used. Very convenient that I don't need to hook up wires I'm not using. Runs cool. Would recommend.

  • Pros: Stable voltages
  • Cons: the fan sound is unbearable.

  • Summary: I've updated my review from the previous. the power supply makes the flaws in your music much more noticeable, and makes good music clearer, but doesn't introduce increased distortion.
  • Pros: Stable voltages, good system performance
  • Cons: fan could be quieter

  • Summary: using On a Sb X-Fi Elite Pro.. wonderful power supply, stable voltages (At least when the temperatures are low, haven't hot tested), and more than likely gives better frames and better performance when running most games.
  • Pros: Stable voltages that don't move, good system performance, excellent Cable organization.
  • Cons: doesn't work well with high-end audio, may work well for gaming applications if one is interested in a more dynamic sound, more range flexibility, and more bass.

Didn't work for me, failed after 1 hour of use

Kevin Maxx "Kevin", Amazon
9 January 2015
  • Summary: Connected this to my new i7 5860X build and everything was fine on first boot up for about an hour and then everything went dead. New computer would no longer boot, just heard clicking sound from PSU. Attempted paper clip test and same clicks and then nothing, no response so this PSU was dead.
