Back in March Antec unveiled its upcoming HCP-1000 Platinum at CeBIT 2012. Upping the anti, Antec’s High Current Pro lineup is due for an overhaul, being equipped with 80 Plus Platinum efficiency and bringing in the full flexibility of being completely modular. The first unit to receive such a renovation is the 1000W variant.
HCP-1000 Platinum also comes with four +12V rails, a 135mm double ball bearing fan with low-voltage control, and is backed by a huge 7 years warranty.
