The recent appearance of 80 Plus Titanium certified power supply units (although not really that many in number) has finally forced manufacturers to perform price cuts on their Platinum and Gold certified models so it's not really a surprise that lately some of you have asked us to also focus our reviews on the best Platinum models currently in the market (we would had done so either way eventually). A few months back we had the latest HCP-1300 (High Current Pro Platinum 1300W) power supply unit by Antec on our test bench and as some of you may recall it was without doubt one of the best units to ever pass from our lab (not to mention one of the most highest output ones to date). Since the HCP-1300 isn't however the only model in the High Current Pro Platinum line by Antec we decided to also test its two smaller brothers and so today we will start with the lowest output model the HCP-850 850W PSU.
