Antec High Current Pro Platinum 1000W Power Supply Review

Antec High Current Pro Platinum 1000W

Performance: 10/10 (40% of the final score)
Performance has been rock solid. The HCP-1000 handled everything I threw at it regardless of load without question. On both systems, the HCP-1000 handled as much system load as I could push and never skipped a beat. The fan adequately cooled the unit without being loud and was quite impressive given how much air it was actually moving.

Features: 10/10 (20% of the final score)
The HCP-1000 had some great features that were primarily focused on future proofing and flexibility. This is the first unit I’ve seen that allows the end user to plug components into specific rails. The OC connector which allows two units to work in tandem is another unique feature that I have yet to see anywhere else. Antec really focused on the end user's experience and has really defined what a "modular" unit should be.

Components/Build Quality: 9.5/10 (20% of the final score)
All Japanese components and a unit built by Delta, what more could you ask for? This is a premium unit and it really shows through both the design and build of the unit. My only concern with the build quality came down to that noise with the fan. It may have just been turbulence, but it remains a mystery.

Value: 8/10 (20% of the final score)
At the time of writing, the HCP-1000 is going for roughly $250, meanwhile some very competitive options like the EVGA Supernova P2 are around $180. Even in this case, for slightly more, you step up to a Titanium rated PSU for even more energy saving. The Antec HCP-1000 certainly has a lot to offer in the way of features and is hard to beat when it comes to performance. If this unit would drop just slightly, I think it would have a much better competitive edge when going up against the competition.
