As I have said time and time again, the power supply is the true backbone of any PC system. You never–and I mean never–compromise on your PSU. If you have the money in your budget, get the best quality PSU you can afford. Antec is looking to fill the gap between the 850 Watt HCP and 1200 Watt HCP with the new Antec High Current Pro 1000W Platinum.
The Antec HCP Platinum still boast the unit modular system where 8-pin cables will function in 16-pin slots. This allows a multitude of cable configurations to ensure your PSU is wired for anything you can throw at it. There is little possibility of load issues with four 40A rails powering the grid of modular plugs. And the entire package is backed by a 7 year parts and labor warranty.
The Antec HCP Platinum is available right now in North America for $269.95 MSRP at NCIX.com, Newegg.com, and other major retailers. If I didn’t already have an Antec HCP 850 Watt Gold, this would be at the top of my list of PSUs.
