Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Antec has recently released a new power supply series, called High Current Gamer, so far featuring 400 W, 520 W, 620 W, 750 W, and 900 W models, all featuring 80 Plus Bronze certification.



The Antec Higher Current Gamer 750 W is manufactured by Delta Electronics.

The Antec High Current Gamer 750 W is 7.1” (180 mm) deep, with a 135 mm dual ball bearing fan (ADDA ADN512UB-A90).

The new Antec High Current Gamer 750 W doesn’t have a modular cabling system. All cables are protected with nylon sleeves. The power supply comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 22” (56 cm) long
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 26” (66 cm) long
  • Two cables with two six/eight-pin connectors for video cards each, 22” (56 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • Three cables with three SATA power connectors each, 22” (56 cm) to the first connector, 5.5” (14 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors, 22” (56 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors and one floppy disk drive power connector, 22” (56 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors

All wires are 18 AWG, which is the minimum recommended gauge.

Even though this power supply has four power connectors for video cards, allowing you to install two video cards that require two power connectors each without the need of adapters, they are available on two cables. We’d like this power supply better if each video card power connector was installed on an individual cable. On the other hand, the number of SATA power connectors is very good for a 750 W power supply (nine).
