5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!!!!!

Pros: Modular

850 watts

80Plus Bronze

Supports 4 PCIe power connectors

Cons: None really, it has been great, going on 6 years. Purchased 12/01/2008.

Other Thoughts: I first purchased this for my folding @ home rig with dual video cards x58 i7 920 all water cooled with 2 loops and everything slightly overclocked.

The first month I was worried I had too much power draw with my over clocking, but the PSU was barely warm. I order a kill-a-watt meter just in case and sure enough I was over my limit. It was pulling between 975-1025 watts!!! And for over a month running 24/7!

I've ben using since, but making sure I didn't pull too much, mostly around 600-700 watts. After a full year of folding and getting tired of high electric bills, it was reverted to a gaming rig in SLI mode.

For 6-years running it deserves a 5-star rating and running almost 200 watts past it limit without breaking a sweat for over a month straight.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

Pros: Fits the Antec Skeleton case.

Cons: Does not work. I bought a reconditioned one of these power supplies because it is one of the few power supplies that fit the Antec Skeleton case. I plugged it in to my system and turned it on, the green LED on my motherboard came on, but the fan in the PSU itself did not come on, the fans which plug directly into the PSU did not come on and the system would not start.

So I contacted Antec and they informed me that it was still under warranty and that I should contact Altech who handle their warranty claims in Australia. So I contacted Altech, it took them 2 weeks to reply to my email and their response was "Please return the PSU back to the reseller for a warranty claim." Unfortunately it will cost me more than the unit is worth to return it to the reseller.

So I bought a brand new TPQ-850, unpacked it, plugged it in, and it had exactly the same symptoms as the first one. So it has worked for 0 days. So I will now try to claim it under warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsRough new age...

Pros: Pretty decent for one of the first Moduler PSU's. Plenty of power, and can accommodate just about every need.

Cons: Possibly due to age, the 6-pins are seemingly starting to fail. Having trouble powering an EVGA 8800GTS, which has no obvious faults. Still, not bad for 4 years...

Other Thoughts: NOTE: PCI-E Connectors are actually 2x6, and 2x6+2 (not 2x8).

5 out of 5 eggs2 years strong

Pros: The rear mounted fan. Quality build. Still runs strong after almost 2 years.

Cons: The cables.

Other Thoughts: The rear mounted fan saved me from a freak beverage spill. I actually prefer them on psu's. Flame has even been set to the main netted cable and it still runs great.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Antec Customer Support

Pros: Bought this off someone, it came in an eentire rig setup. sadly that rig didn't have all the modular cables and the person who sold it to me did not either. I called Antec and they sent me a set of modular cables, no questions asked, for free. All they asked for was my address. The power supply was a beast too, Johnny Guru gives it a sick rating!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know how the RMA process is at antec but their customer service was legit, ya heard meh?!?

5 out of 5 eggsOrigonal Purchase 7/12/08

Pros: Has never failed on me. I have used this power supply in 2 different builds of my own and tested more than a handful of other builds with it as well. Cureently Powering a dual-channel i7 setup w/ 4GB of ram and a 4780HD.

Cons: While I have never experience any major cons, I have heard they have poor customer service and a bad RMA process.

Personally I do wish it was more modular(one reviewer noted his replacement on a warranty was not modular at all), but when i was shopping at the time, completely modular PSU's were going for $250-300 plus.

Other Thoughts: I plan on replacing this power supply soon for the safety of my computer, but I just wanted to make a testament to a strong power supply. I will include Antec in my search for its replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked just fine until it failed

Pros: The PSU worked just great for ~3 years, I had no issues during that time.

Cons: Failed at around the 3 year mark. It was covered under the 5 year warranty, but since this model wasn't no longer in Production, they wanted to replace it with an HCG-900. That's not modular, and not the same PSU product-line, but it would do the job. Except they sent me back the wrong product! In the box was an HCG-520. All the product documentation was for a HCG-900, only the PSU itself was an HCG-520. Antec refuses to believe me that they sent me the wrong product, and their support team has been very effective at stonewalling my efforts to get the issue resolved and speak to a supervisor (so this must happen often) claiming that the item weighed the proper amount at time of shipment (although when I shipped it back, it didn't weight the same as what they said it did). They've been unable to provide me with the name of the person who weighed the item or the serial number of the item they sent me. My cooperation and understanding of their mistake didn't get me anywhere.

Other Thoughts: Altogether very dissatisfied with Antec customer support for RMAs. Antec is 0 for 1 in my book for RMAs, 0%. I build my own computers and this was the only Antec component I had in my one machine. I have no intention of buying another Antec product ever again after that very negative experience - now I need to buy another 850w+ PSU out-of-pocket.

Manufacturer Response:

I hope that after we talked over the phone that you're pleased with the resolution to your issue. I apologize for the mix-up and the delays. If you have any questions going forward, don't hesitate to contact me.
