Antec High Current Pro 1200W Power Supply
Article Publish Date:
The necessity of owning a high quality power supply is something we have talked about dozens of times in the past years. Especially if you are living in places like Greece where spikes in electricity are a daily thing you really don't have a choice but to own such a high quality PSU, unless you don't mind if everything in your system gets fried quite often. That being said there are many capable high quality power supplies in the market but only just a handful actually belong in the ultra-high end segment.

The High Current Pro 1200W by Antec is one of these ultra-high end power supply units and although it took us quite some time to get our hands on it our test results made up for that since as you will also see later on it managed to produce rock solid voltage regulation with very good noise levels, for an 1200W power supply unit that is. Another great feature of the HCP-1200 is its size since by using two PCBs placed ontop of each other Antec has managed to reduce the size to almost the size of the smaller 800W units which should come quite handy with midi towers (although i doubt people with midi towers would ever need an 1200W PSU).
