Antec 1300W

Anonymous, Newegg
29 December 2015
  • Summary: No seriously, that was evil and cold-hearted. but, there's something either wrong with the way your computer is configured or there is a problem with your power source. I won't be able to diagnose everything but the best way is a flow chart. Are you overclocking. What are the temps on your computer.
  • Pros: - Quiet fan unlike the 1000W and 850W Models - works well with a Asus Xonar or Creative Sound Blaster
  • Cons: if your computer fails under 4 years, just uninstall.

Upset and Questionable!

John A., Newegg
17 December 2015
  • Summary: My HCP-1200 was perfect with my dual EVGA GTX-580 Classified Hydro Copper, i7-2600k, Mushkin Redline 7 latency memory, Asus Xonar Xense sound card and Asus Maximus IV Extreme Z68 until it finally failed after 4 years. Warranty was 5 years.
  • Pros: Quiet fan. Was a free warranty replacement.
  • Cons: 16 pin cables are useless unless you have a Titan as Antec told me or if the future requires it. Came sealed in plastic wrap with only three 8 pin (6+2) cables. Missing the other seven cables.

  • Pros: This psu is a beast! I have put it through hell and it has never failed me. I purchased this psu in dec 2013 to run a dedicated rig running 4X R9 280X at max load pulling over 1300 watts 24hrs a day for over a year with zero issues. I have since re purposed this psu now and using it for a new bui...

  • Pros: I had upgraded my 860i from corsair when she decided to die on me. I didnt have choice but to get this one because i was at a local shop and wanted a platinum 80 plus. and only ones that were available was 860i, 1500i, and this one. it was roughly $210 for me bc they had some special pormotion an...

  • Summary: I've been using this power supply in the new PC that I built since July and it has preformed wonderfully. I was afraid that I'd blow fuses and my power bill would go up with a 1300W power supply, but I've had no problems at all.

Great power supply for OC'd/SLI

Joshua H., Newegg
1 August 2014
  • Pros: After reading several negative reviews about this products, I figured I would throw in my $.02 for whatever its worth! I've been running this PSU for a little over 6mos without issue. I'm running 2x GTX 780TI + 4790k atm, all OC'd and on custom water cooling. The power supply has provide stable v...
  • Cons: None so far...If any, maybe the price is a little too high considering an Enrerman REVO 1500 can be had for around the same price.

Hardly can withstand 1300W of real use

Kevin L., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Summary: Those that think this PSU is great are probably just kids overbuying PSU output for what they need. Those that actually need ~1300W should be well aware this unit absolutely sucks at it. I've already wasted 2 weeks of my time thinking something else was wrong with my setup.
  • Pros: Packaging was nice. Construction felt solid. Nothing out of the ordinary. One big thing of note is the length of this unit - it's an inch or two shorter than others in it's class. Also chose this unit because the fan was recommended more than those used in other units. Was using an EVGA 1300W Sup...
  • Cons: This thing just simply can't perform. CONSTANTLY tripped OCP on an overclocked, watercooled 4930k and Titan Tri-SLi setup. My old, louder, cheaper EVGA unit could power this just fine. I was in disbelief. Tried different configs (and voltages), and searched around on OCN forums. Turns out this PS...
