We would like to thank Antec for supplying the review sample.
The glory times for our former PSU load tester, Faganas, came to an end. From now on our new set up consisting of nine electronic loads and a dedicated transient load tester will take the reins. However Faganas will still have some action since with its help we will conduct the Turn On Transient Load tests at +12V.
Enough with the talk about the changes to our testing setup, let’s take a look at today’s PSU sample. Antec was kind enough to provide us with its flagship PSU, the mighty HCP-1200, a gold efficiency PSU with monstrous capacity that can handle up to four high-end VGAs along with other power hungry components almost effortlessly. Antec HCP-1200 along with Corsair AX1200 are considered the kings of the Mega PSU category, with the first slightly outperforming Corsair’s flagship. Behind HCP-1200 we find the biggest and one of the most respected PSU OEMs, Delta, which is responsible for many successful Antec PSUs (e.g. the legendary Signature series) so we expect very much from HCP-1200.
