    Default Antec HCP 1000 Platinum review at Funkykit

    Best 12 V regulation I've seen yet, by far.

    But the noise of that thing is said to be pretty bad...
    Pretty high bearing/motor noise...

    btw: how long is that thing??

    I've read that, mine's quite quiet though.
    Currently it's still in pieces, I'll measure it when I get it back together.

    Seen better, especially (electrical) noise-wise, but it really is a nice PSU. Prefer SS-1000XP, though.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    On that oscilloscope pretty much anything (high end) will display similar or worst ripple levels.
    I don't think there's anything on the market I'd buy over the HCP 1000 (referring to high output units only, obviously).

    The NZXT HALE90 V2 1200 (and me 1kw ES unit) are lower, I think I found a 750w unit some time ago that was in the similar ballpark. DC-DC bits are noisy as hell, both with regards to their own output and in regards to the mess they can make of the 12 V rail.
    This goes double if your scope is set to high bandwidth mode to hunt down the switching noise, or at least if I set my scope there.

    I wasn't overly impressed with the 5v and 3v3 rails, 12v was decent.

    As far as a platinum unit to actually use, it'd be between this and the PC P&C 1200w silencer mark III. The PC P&C has a little bit better ripple, though nowhere near the 12 V regulation (10mV is wild regulation!).
    The Tachyon 1kw has better ripple as well, but no TVS diode and I have mixed feelings on totally fanless operation.
    The downside to the PC P&C and the Tachyon are their single rail nature. This is the only multi-rail ~1kw platinum unit I've run into yet. That's worth something to me.

    We are starting shipping now the units with OC Link, a version with a socket & cable to link 2 units for powering one system.

    Nothing else on specs changed, we just added that socket & cable and changed the 16-pin socket color to black.

    Interesting, that's pretty cool. Rare too, I can only think of one other unit built like that. It's done in a clunkier way though.

    For me? Probably the other two HCP units I've done.
    I have an el-cheapo here with Delta's UL number on it, but I'd be rather surprised if Delta actually had anything to do with it given that it's branded as an Enlight.
