Antec High Current Pro Platinum 1300W PSU Review

The Antec High Current Pro Platinum 1300W ships in a large box highlighting most of the main selling points. Ideal for a retail store environment.
Inside the box is a thin user manual, along with screws for mounting and some cable ties.
Full marks for packaging – Antec are using thick foam to protect everything inside. The modular cables are all protected inside a soft felt bag (top left). The Antec High Current Pro Platinum power supply is also protected inside a felt bag (top right).
The quality of the cables is very high, although they are quite ‘rigid’ and may take a little effort to bend and route in some cases. We like how Antec have attached labels to some of the cables to help guide the user during the install phase.

Cable Connectors
ATX 20+4 pin x1 (560mm)
6+2 pin PCIe x4 (550mm)
6+2 Pin PCIe x6 (550mm + 145mm)
4+4 pin EPS12V/ATX12V x2 (645mm)
SATA x9 (550mm + 150mm)
MOLEX / FDD x3 (550mm + 150mm) /x1 (+150mm)
MOLEX x3 (550mm + 150mm)
OC LINK CABLE x1 (550mm)

No shortage of PCIe connectors – with ten included in the bundle. There are also two EPS connectors and all of these can be used simultaneously if needed. I was quite surprised however to see only 9 SATA connectors available – I would have expected at least 12 with such a powerful unit.
