Antec High Current Gamer 620M Modular Power Supply Review - Final Thoughts


Final Thoughts


The Antec HCG-620M delivers the same solid performance of the older HCG-620 with consistent voltage levels and vast amounts of power to be had. Having the support of Antec's AQ5 5-year limited warranty doesn't hurt either. However, one must not forget that the only major difference between the HCG-620M and its predecessor is modularity. Unless you demand a high level of organization and convenience from your PSU, saving $20 by picking up the standard HCG-620 may be a good way to free up some change for your next build. The HCG-620M could also stand to lose anywhere from $10 to $15 on its MSRP as it faces stiff competition in the $99.99 price bracket from the likes of OCZ and Corsair. At the time of this review, the HCG-620M can be had for $89.99 at A 1-year extended warranty can be had for another $9.99. If you're looking for a gaming grade PSU that can roll with the big shots, you may want to grab your wallet and pay them a visit! 


The Good


The Bad

  • All Japanese capacitors ensure reliable operation
  • Stealthy wires blend nicely inside black enclosures
  • Dual purpose 10-pin connectors give builders added flexibility
  • Dual ball bearing 135mm fan operates quietly under load
  • The 20+4-pin and ATX12V/EPS12V power cables may run a bit tight inside larger towers
  • Those wanting to mount their PSU "properly" will have to contend with upside down graphics
  • A $10 to $15 drop in price could improve the HCG-620M standing against the competition
