Antec High Current Gamer 620W
From a functional standpoint, the Antec High Current Gamer is 80PLUS Bronze certified, which is to be considered near the lower range of power efficiency these days, as many other offerings do come in Silver and Gold certification. But the High Current Gamer did well in our testing, nothing spectacular though to distinguish itself in those respects. Voltage regulation and output quality were very good, and ripple results were respectable. The cable lengths are quite long which is notable for those who have full tower cases and are very particular about their cable management. Noise levels were quiet across the board, even when the unit ramped up at higher loads.
The lack of modular design might pose an issue for some users that don’t want to deal with a mess of cables. However, the cables are fully sleeved, the internals are very roomy so the airflow and temperatures were good, the Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors are fine,
and the unit runs quiet.
At a price of about $80, the High Power Gamer 620W is a very good deal, but you do get what you pay for; it is only 80PLUS Bronze certified, and has a non-modular design. Interestingly, the Seasonic S12II, which this unit is based upon, sells for $10 cheaper. Perhaps Antec is banking on their brand recognition to pull consumers toward a High Current Gamer purchase instead.
In any event, the Antec High Current Gamer 620W doesn’t excel in any particular category but it gets the job done very nicely for a great price. If you’re on a tight budget and don’t want to sacrifice performance, then this unit will certainly do the trick.
