Antec High Current Pro 850w Unboxing

Antec High Current Pro 850w

Introduction

Antec, one of the only companies making the true monster units in a main stream package have sent us over their High Current Pro 850w. Due to our lack of proper testing kit, this will be just a quick unboxing preview but we’ll cover the physical features and what you get when you buy this HCP PSU.

NB. I know, I know I need an oscilloscope. I’m working on it.
