Antec High Current Gamer 620M Modular Power Supply Review


Keeping the power hungry gaming enthusiast in mind, Antec developed the High Current Gamer series of power supplies to cater to the needs of its SLI and Crossfire touting customers. Now the company has taken this popular line of PSUs modular to keep users more organized and more flexible. The most touted feature of the HCG-620M is its ability to sustain high voltage levels consistently across its single 12V rail, allowing it to keep up with larger and more expensive competitors that take a multi-rail approach. A quaility build with all Japanese capacitors, durable black cable sleeving, and a quiet dual ball bearing fan make this offering from Antec a strong competitor in the hotly contested $99.99 price bracket. 



 Elite power meets unrivaled performance

Antec's HCG-M power supplies are the perfect combination of power and efficiency. The HCG-620M features special heavy-duty High Current connectors and cabling that supply extreme levels of power, and superb efficiency thanks to 80 PLUS® Bronze certification and Active PFC. Highest-quality connectors, Japanese-brand capacitors, and a quiet 135 mm double ball bearing fan complete the package. The HCG-620M features High Current Cable Management and 10-pin modular connectors. If loads of power, High Current engineering and extreme efficiency are what you're after, the HCG-620M is the PSU for you.
