Antec Announces New Availability of HCP 1300 PSU

Antec just announced that it’s highest end PSU, the HCP 1300 Platinum, is being released to new markets. What makes this interesting is they released this unit in India first, but now it looks like it’s hitting the American and European markets and possibly others that were harder to find mentions of. While the question may still remain of why a California based company would release a unit in India first, what makes this PSU more interesting is some new features that might be telling of the future of motherboards. The first feature of interest is the OC Link Technology. This actually came out a bit ago and allows two PSUs to be connected simultaneously to reach the power demands of a super high end system. With 1300 watts of power, it seems hard to imagine needing more than one unit, however, dual GPU cards can easily max out power demands once 2 or 3 of them are set up in one system. This could mean that there is a future for more dual GPU GFX Cards in the development pipes for the system builder. The more realistic reason though, is that with bit coin miners buying up power intensive AMD cards and running them 24/7, they need PSUs to have more than enough headroom over the power requirements of their systems so there’s less chances of burn outs. The other interesting feature to note is the inclusion of a 28-pin motherboard connector. The idea behind this is to future proof the PSU, but with new tech being more power efficient, it’s hard to im...



Antec Kuhler H2O 950 AIO CPU cooler

In a market which is quickly becoming saturated with a great selection of All-In-One (AIO) water cooling systems, it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish yourself from the rest of the crowd. After all, there's only so much innovation to be had before you've exhausted all of the possibilities of the specific form factor that these products really have to take. Antec believes that there is some unexplored territory left in this realm and have answered the call to be different with the introduction of their new lineup of AIO CPU coolers. On hand today is the middle child of the bunch, the Kuhler H2O 950: Will it's unique design and feature set enable it to stand out in the crowd, or does it fall flat and just blend in with everything else? Read on to find out, but first here's a little bit about Antec:



 
 
 
 
 

Antec Kuhler H20 650

With the PWM fan designed to automatically adjust fan speed based on temperature, its directional blade is designed to focus on maximum airflow.

Antec P280

They have their own Quiet Computing section with cases intended for low noise, featuring the Performance One family and the Sonata family. The latest addition to the Performance One family is the P280. The P280 is available in four different flavors – black or white and with or without a window.

Antec High Current Pro Platinum 850
