Antec High Current Gamer 900W Power Supply Review

Rating: 9.0.

Last month we reviewed Antec’s new 80 Plus Gold Certified ‘High Current Pro 850W‘ power supply, and we were impressed. Today we are looking at the 900W model in their ‘High Current Gamer’ range. As this series is 80 Plus Bronze Certified, it is a little more affordable, with the 900w unit retailing for only £100 inc vat.

The High Current Gaming series, in Antec’s own words delivers ‘stability and relability’ and was field tested by one of the world’s most successful gaming teams – Team-Dignitas. We aren’t quite sure how a LAN gaming team can conclusively verify the quality of a power supply, but the fact that they remained in operation for days on end within high ambient temperatures and under stressful situations indicates that they are designed to deal with long, less than perfect situations. Obviously our testing today will be a little more scientific than this, but its a catchy selling point for this range.
