Antec showed off the High Current Pro (HCP) Platinum 1000W PSU, at CeBIT. The HCP Platinum is an 80 Plus Platinum-compliant variant of the original High Current Pro launched in 2010, which were 80 Plus Gold-compliant. Antec's exhibit featured a special body retrofitted with acrylic windows so visitors could see its innards, the retail version will obviously have a full-metal body, and a 135 mm fan in its right place, to keep the unit cool. The HCP Platinum 1000W features a quad-12V rail design, with four 40A rails. The unit features completely modular cabling, including for the 24-pin ATX and dual 8-pin EPS connectors. There's sufficient cabling for even 4-way setups. The source mentions the unit to be contract-manufactured by Delta Electronics, for Antec. More pictures of this "juicy" PSU at the source.

It is a great idea from Antec to put a glass panel on the top of a PSU. It is good to see that they have the confidence to show a high quality product with a clean presentation.

OOOH acrylic PSU case's! The '90's are back! lol

What's the deal with 4 12v rail's? I always thought a single rail was more stable/robust :confused: I've always used single rail PSU's, but then again i've always used single GFX card as well....

It all depends on how it's done. And too much amps on a single rail can cause some bad stuff (almost the bottom). That's why we want it reviewed. :D

The only reason i came in here after reading it was to say i wish the retail version could look like that display model and i see half the comments thinking it is the retail model.:banghead: It looks like over a quarter of the text in the article is about that one detail :laugh:

Antec showed off the High Current Pro (HCP) Platinum 1000W PSU, at CeBIT. The HCP Platinum is an 80 Plus Platinum-compliant variant of the original High Current Pro launched in 2010, which were 80 Plus Gold-compliant. Antec's exhibit featured a special body retrofitted with acrylic windows so visitors could see its innards, the retail version will obviously have a full-metal body, and a 135 mm fan in its right place, to keep the unit cool. The HCP Platinum 1000W features a quad-12V rail design, with four 40A rails. The unit features completely modular cabling, including for the 24-pin ATX and dual 8-pin EPS connectors. There's sufficient cabling for even 4-way setups. The source mentions the unit to be contract-manufactured by Delta Electronics, for Antec. More pictures of this "juicy" PSU at the source.
I think the display model does look really good and i would happily mod that in to a working model by adding vents to the side and fans to the back, i know i could do that to any PSU but the less work the better as i am lazy :laugh:.

Nice PSU & a total of 83amps for the 12v rails , that is 23amps more than my 750w PSU on the 12v rail

Makes me wonder how much more amps a board can take on the 12v rail before it blows out?
