Antec HCP-850 Platinum 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Yes Yes 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Stable voltages, good system performance

Cons: fan could be quieter

Other Thoughts: I've updated my review from the previous. the power supply makes the flaws in your music much more noticeable, and makes good music clearer, but doesn't introduce increased distortion. the background noise is an inherent issue with All PC-based setups, unless you have like the new X-Fi that has a daughter board.

It's about not how quiet the fan is. - not the dB it can be as loud as you want and you wouldn't care, but there's a certain rubbing sound that no matter how quiet the fan is, is present.

I've owned several HCP Series and they have the fan sound - sounds like plastic rubbing, it can get really noticeable when there is no ambient noise in the room. If you want a really quiet setup you may want to go with Sanyo-Denki-supplied fans instead.

Antec HCP-850 Platinum 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Yes Yes 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Stable voltages that don't move, good system performance, excellent Cable organization.

Cons: doesn't work well with high-end audio, may work well for gaming applications if one is interested in a more dynamic sound, more range flexibility, and more bass.

Other Thoughts: using On a Sb X-Fi Elite Pro.. wonderful power supply, stable voltages (At least when the temperatures are low, haven't hot tested), and more than likely gives better frames and better performance when running most games.

it actually sounds better, the sound is perceived as better - more dynamic, louder as well as on normal listening volumes, but if there's no sound coming from the speakers, and you turn up the volume knob on your AV receiver to the Max, you can actually hear that the new power supply introduces an extreme amount of distortion and noise - it's not even like a small noticeable difference.

it's not the grounding, cables, or the power conditioner, because those haven't changed, and it's not setup-specific - it's likely the specific way the power supply was designed, the voltage it provides to a 4-pin floppy cable, but if you like louder, dynamic sound with good detail compared to a reference power supply (e.g. the previous one), by all means.

the problem with high-current power supplies is that they supply higher voltages to your components and may cause unintended consequences to sensitive components such as sound cards. I really liked the power supply and it was a shame to see it go. I haven't tested the Corsair AX Series, but I'll switch back to an Antec TruePower and see how it goes.

the other problem is that Delta doesn't manfacture the same type of fans as Sanyo Denki, and if you have any experience with the HCP Series, which I own a few .. the fans aren't as good in my thoughts even though they are made to Top spec.

Go for Antec's TruePower Gold or Classic series if you're running components like Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro or Asus Essence STX, if all you care about it sound quality, there's going to be a tradeoff in performance vs. the sound one wants to achieve. Good luck with choosing your components.
