Antec High Current Platinum HCP-850 850W Power Supply Review
30 September 2013
Summary: Antec’s currently best 850W power supply, the HCP-850 Platinum, has left us with mixed feelings. It surprised us with its excellent overall performance and fantastic quality, then disenchanted us with the very high retail price. If you are the kind of user who is seeking the very best, then the HCP-850 Platinum is certainly worthy of your attention. If however value plays any significant part in your choice, it will certainly not be an appealing deal.
Excerpt: Our latest power supply target for reviewing is the Antec HCP-850 Platinum, an updated and more efficient version of the original High Current Pro 850 watt unit. In the time since that unit came out, the competition from the likes of Seasonic, Corsair and Super Flower to name a few has only gotten stronger and stronger. Does Antec still have what it takes to compete in an increasingly cutthroat market? I don't know yet, but I'm going to find out.

. To date, Antec units from its flagship lines have fared well in our testing. Its non-flagship lines however, have at times struggled. So, with the HCP-850 coming from a flagship product line we have a lot of high expectations for this unit, not least of which because the last unit from this series we saw we declared "
The new king of 1200W...
Summary: The High Current Pro is Antec's flagship line of computer power supplies. Given that and the previous stellar performance from the HCP-1200 we have seen previously, we have very high hopes for a new crown jewel in Antec's HCP line up.
Excerpt: Late last year, we looked at the most powerful model in a new line from Antec in the HCP-1200. That unit turned out to be one of the best units we've ever seen at the site. But it's not the only model in the series - there are also 850 watt and 750 watt little brothers to that monster. I'm going to be looking at one of those today - the HCP-850. Will it measure up to the standards set by the 1200 watt monster? It's high time we found out.
