I’ve been reviewing quite a few Antec products recently and they’ve all turned up pretty well so far. The last of my Antec product reviews is the Solo II case, the prequel of which has ended up as one of the most oft reviewed ones on the site.
This new edition updates the original design with a few extra features, while maintaing the parts that made it a good buy. At least that’s the plan anyway. Let’s see if Antec followed through.Specifications

The second in my series of Antec reviews is the Kühler H²O 620, another self-contained liquid cooling unit for your CPU. The Kühler H²O 620 is a more basic, simple and cheaper version of the Kühler H²O 920. Although lacking some of the features of its bigger brother, we will see if the 620 wins in the value for money department.Specifications

The Kulher H20 920, which I am testing today is a self-contained liquid cooling unit for your CPU. The 920 has an extremely feature packed package, with a thick radiator and changeable LEDs in the pump/waterblock. This being the top performing unit Antec produces, it should make for an interesting [...]
Since HardwareSecrets gave us all a beating on our PSU review practices a few years ago, many – including ourselves – have been reduced to doing Previews and Unboxings to keep ourselves honest; we didn’t have the equipment to do things properly, so we wern’t going to be false about it.
The problem with PSU reviews, is that a proper load tester, costs a lot of money; more than this humble review site can afford. What we can do though, is bug companies like BeQuiet to buy some testing kit for us. They didn’t get us a Chroma system, but we did get a DS1M12 oscilloscope. That lets us get back in the game somewhat.
So here we go [...]
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.Features and Specifications 850 watts of Continuous Power 80 PLUS™ Gold certified – up to 92% efficient NVIDIA® SLI®-Ready certified, ATI CrossFireX™ certified High Current Hybrid Cable Management utilizes a 10-pin modular connector system Special heavy-gauge 16 [...]
Antec and speakers, not a combination you’d have expected to hear a few years ago, but here we are, with the Rockus 3D speakers from Antec’s Soundscience division. It’s an interesting looking 2.1 setup with a purported 3D mode that delivers virtual surround sound. Or at least that’s the plan. Let’s see if they hold up under scrutiny.SpecificationsConfiguration2.1DimensionsSatellite Speakers 5.7” (H) x 6.3” (D) x 4.7” (W) 144.8 mm (H) x 160.0 mm (D) x 119.4 mm (W)Subwoofer 13.8” (H) x 10.6” (D) x 7.7” (W) 350.5 mm (H) x 269.2 mm (D) x 195.5 mm (W) with 6.5″ diameter subwooferWeight 8.5 kg / 18.7 [...]
