Introduction:

Antec’s HCG 750W 80+ Gold Power Supply is designed for the high-end PC enthusiasts who are looking for a premium PSU with great functionality and reliability. The PSU is 80+ Gold rated which means that it is highly power efficient and will squeeze all of the watts your hardware will require in real time from it.

Previously, here at Pak Gamers Republic, we reviewed Antec Neo Eco 550M 80+ Bronze PSU which seemed like a really good option for the price, with its additional benefits of semi-modular design and a stable voltage flow. It also captured the PakGamersRepublic Editors Award. It’s only a matter of time that we’ll see what award the Antec’s HCG 750W 80+ Gold captures.
