Introduction to the Antec High Current Gamer HCG-750 Power Supply
Antec is no stranger to high quality power supplies. Over the years we have seen their TruePower Quattro and Signature Series get high praise all across the web. Both of which are intended for those that want the best in power supply technology to protect their precious PC components. Especially for the gamers that run dual, or more, graphic cards as they would really benefit from the quality of such power supplies.
Recently Antec released another high grade series of power supplies titled High Current Pro [HCP]. The series definitely lives up to its name, with models ranging from 750 to 1200 watts, and have gotten the 80PLUS Gold rating for being able to maintain whopping 90+% efficiency rating on 1/2 load. Crossfire and SLI certified, heavy duty gauge wiring and eight 12 volt rails make the HCP is a monster waiting to unleashed.
While Antec's new High Current Pro are certainly amazing units, if you don't necessarily need all that raw power, you may be asking: "So does Antec have anything other new PSUs worth investigating?" Oh, we're glad you asked! As it just so happens, they have also rolled out the High Current Gamer series as an alternative to the HCP models. These aren't a horribly de-tuned model either, as you still have multiple GPU support, the same high quality build and multiple 12v rails. On top of that, the looks of these Gamer models, is pretty dam attractive! So with that, we are pleased to bring you the HCG-750, or the 750W model from the new Antec High Current Gamer line.
