   One COMPUTEX is over and another E3 has just begun so naturally things are somewhat chaotic these days with all the people going back and forth to attend both shows. Unfortunately although many manufacturers revealed quite a few impressive products during this year’s COMPUTEX we were unable to attend we did however managed to have some of those products delivered to us to start on their reviews before they were even unveiled in COMPUTEX so that in a way makes up for that. To be completely honest with you some of us are way more interested in this year’s E3 since there are going to be (or at least should be) several ground breaking game titles presented there such as Chris Roberts Star Citizen/Squadron 42, Call Of Duty Ghosts, Star Wars Battlefront, Thief and Elite Dangerous by David Braben. So if any of you end up going there remember not to miss out on these amazing upcoming game titles (if you are not worry not, you can check E3 at our friends over at Gamespot). Leaving E3 aside today we will be focusing one of the products presented in this year’s COMPUTEX the HCG-750M High Current Gamer Modular 750W PSU by Antec.

 

   Antec, Inc., is the leading global brand of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) markets. Founded in 1986, Antec is recognized as a pioneer in these industries and has maintained its position as a worldwide market leader and international provider of efficient, quiet, and reliable products. Antec has also achieved great success in the distribution channel, meeting the demands of quality-conscious system builders, VARs and integrators. Antec is headquartered in Fremont, California, with additional offices in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, as well as in Germany, China and Taiwan. The company’s products are sold in more than 40 countries throughout the world. Please visit www.antec.com for more information.

 

   Antec has designed the entire High Current Gamer line not for professionals or enthusiasts but mostly for demanding gamers so the HCG-750M comes ready with an 80 Plus Bronze efficiency certification (up to 88% efficient), two +12V rails, Japanese heavy-duty capacitors, several industrial grade protections (OCP,OVP,UVP,SCP,OPP,OTP,SIP) and is backed up with a full 5 year warranty. Certainly Antec could have given the new HCG-750M 80 Plus gold or platinum certification by using different components and topography but that would certainly up the price quite a bit something which would make little sense considering that they already have such solutions available in their High Current Pro line. So the time has come for us to see exactly what the latest HCG-750M has to offer and in a way to see just how it compares to its predecessor.

Despite that typo it's an honest tech review. As always...Thx! Antec made a very good job with this PSU, powerful and stable with nice sleeved cables. Next time i want to see this baby working hard...

When you are in a hurry you make mistakes so we made a typo at the beginning of this review (we typed CES instead of E3).
