Antec Announces the High Current Gamer M PSU Series

Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components, announces the High Current Gamer M series, a mid-range wattage class of hybrid modular power supplies. The High Current Gamer M series is an extension of the HCG PSU line issued in late 2010 but features hybrid modularity, allowing for cleaner systems by reducing cable clutter behind the motherboard.

Antec's new desktop PSU series provides quiet, efficient power in 400W, 520W, and 620W models, accommodating casual gamers, home office and corporate consumers. The High Current Gamer M Series is the perfect combination of power and cabling that supply extreme levels of power and superb efficiency.


Maximum Efficiency - As one of industry's mainstream 80 PLUS Bronze certified PSU, the High Current Gamer M series offers an ideal combination of industry-leading reliability, guaranteed Continuous Power and up to 87% energy efficiency to help reduce electric bills.

Whisper Quiet - A simple 135 mm two ball-bearing fan controlled by Antec's renowned Thermal Manager and CircuitShield operates with minimal noise even at full load.

Premium Components - High Current Gamer M employs 4 fully-protected High Current +12V rails with high load capabilities to ensure maximum CPU and GPU compatibility. It's designed with 100% Japanese capacitors, ensuring maximum DC stability and regulation. It also offers stealth wires for minimal visibility inside the chassis and a 10-pin modular socket for High Current Flexibility.

Black mesh cable sleeves - All wires darkened for minimal visibility in chassis.

Safety Precautions - Patented Circuitshield includes voltage, current, power, under voltage, and short circuit protection which automatically shuts down the PSU to prevent further system damage.

All HCG-M power supplies are covered by an Antec five-year parts & labor warranty.

"Antec has succeeded with providing consumers with quiet and efficient power supplies to choose from," said Mafalda Cogliani, Global Marketing Director at Antec. "And now we want to provide the same type of power and convenience via hybrid modularity power supply that will help with energy reduction."

The HCG-M PSU series will be available in the US on Newegg, ASI, Ma Labs, Amazon, J&R and Buy.com and in Canada on NCIX and Canada Computers in early February.

Crazy Dogmatic Bullsh!t!
the High Current Gamer series needs some Higher Wattage Units.

620w??? I mean REEEEALLY?

Not that it really matters though as Antec already have other higher wattage PSUs from a different line.

The weird additional 20W tipped me off that it's from Seasonic. A quick check confirms that the lineup are composed of Seasonic made units.

There are 750W and 900W from the HCG series, made by Delta.

Well there's still the High Current Pro, as well as adding 80PLUS PLATINUM PSUs made by FSP, the 1000W being the only one so far in the High Current Pro Platinum lineup. There are also lower-wattage ones added to the EarthWatts line.

So they sell outdated Seasonic PSU (M12II/SS-GM) with that price? Good luck....

M12II already on sale in my country. You can get M12II-520 for $75 and M12II-620 for $90. All with 5 years official Seasonic warranty.

IMO a 400w 80 Plus Bronze PSU should not sell for $70 at Newegg. Maybe I'm too stingy.
