Antec HCP-1300 Platinum compatibility review

The Antec HCP-1300 Platinum power supply has a maximum wattage output of 1300W. This should be enough to run multiple of even the most demanding of graphics cards with SLI or Crossfire, although it is worth double-checking if purchasing a particularly power-hungry graphics card setup. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.

The Antec HCP-1300 Platinum has an 80 Plus rating of Platinum. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 89%, 92%, and 90% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Platinum is the best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the Antec HCP-1300 Platinum is exceptionally efficient and comes very highly recommended. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 89.72%, 92.48%, and 91.65%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.

The dimensions of the Antec HCP-1300 Platinum (LxWxH) are 19cm x 15.6cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.

The Antec HCP-1300 Platinum is not modular, meaning that cables are built into the PSU itself and cannot be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can result in difficult cable management and consequently a messy build and poor airflow.

The Antec HCP-1300 Platinum is not designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on could potentially be noticeable and irritating, though this may only be a problem for those that require silent environments.
