This review is from: Antec HCP-850 Platinum 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Yes Yes 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Pros: Worked fine for a while, but was a replacement.
Cons: Died after a year of normal use, with a build that required maybe half the wattage.
Other Thoughts: I put together a few years ago that required about 400w total, maybe a bit less. Originally I had the Antec TPQ-850 because it came with a good combo deal on the case I wanted. It blew out on me after about a year and a half of moderate use, no discernible reason. Antec replaced it with the same part because it was under warranty, but I had to wait a while for the RMA.
Last year, the same thing happened. Again, no reason. No power surges or new parts or shorts, just didn't turn on one morning. It was still under warranty, so I replaced it a second time, which also took them a while to ship to me. This time they sent me the HCP-850 because they no longer had the old model.
My 6-year old mobo then finally decided it had enough and quit on me, so I replaced it. Just built a new system, which I've been doing for years and never had an issue. Went to power it on, and...nothing at all. No fans spinning, no LEDs, not even the paper clip test worked. This one's just over a year old, but since the warranty only extends to my original one, Antec won't replace it this time.
This is my THIRD Antec PSU to blow out in 4 years. I will not be buying a fourth! Antec makes good cases, but as for PSUs I'll never buy another from them.
