Antec High Current Gamer 900W Power Supply
Article Publish Date:
March should really be officially named the mGPU month since inside 20 days we have both the AMD Radeon HD 6990 and the imminent release of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 in exactly 5 days from today. Many of you have asked about what kind of power you would need to support either one of these two beasts and my reply is the same as i have been saying for years and that is to have more power just in case you need it than need it and not have it. Now both the Radeon HD 6990 and the GeForce GTX 590 run well (or at least should for the GeForce GTX 590) even on 750W power supply units but taking into account the drop in prices i would seriously recommend using something from 800W and up especially for people with many cards and optical/disk drives. So today we bring you a review of one of the latest Antec units the High Current Gamer 900W.

The High Current Gamer 900W is the top model of that particular PSU line and i have to say that it is by far one of the best looking as well one of the best performance units Antec has ever manufactured which is kind of impressive considering that the High Current Pro line of PSUs is currently their top line (review soon). Of course much like always not everything is perfect and so we did encounter a couple of tiny little things we did not enjoy with the unit. But enough waiting, let's move on to the rest of the review and see what the HCG 900W is really about.
