Introduction

Antec offers four power supply models within their High Current Pro (HCP) series: 750 W, 850 W, 1,000 W, and 1,200 W. The 1,000 W model has the 80 Plus Platinum certification, while the other models carry the 80 Plus Gold certification. Today we are going to take a look at the 750 W version, which features four +12 V rails. Let’s see if it is a good buy.

Units from the Antec High Current Pro series are manufactured by Delta Electronics

The modular cabling system from this power supply has eight connectors: five red connectors for any kind of cable (including SATA and peripheral cables) and three black connectors specifically for SATA and peripheral power connectors. The unit comes with the main motherboard cable, an ATX12V/EPS12V cable, and one cable with connectors for video cards permanently attached to it. They use nylon sleeves that come from inside the unit. This power supply comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 21.6” (55 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 25.6” (65 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with one EPS12V connector, 25.6” (65 cm) long, modular cabling system
  • One cable with two six/eight-pin connectors for video cards, 21.6” (55 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with two six/eight-pin connectors for video cards, 21.6” (55 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system
  • Three cables, each with three SATA power connectors, 21.6” (55 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors, 21.6” (55 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors and one floppy disk drive power connector, 21.6” (55 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system

All wires are 18 AWG, except for the wires on the main motherboard power cable and on the ATX12V/EPS12V that is permanently attached to the power supply, which are thicker (16 AWG).

The number of connectors is adequate for a 750 W power supply.
