    I still wont touch a Antec PSU to this day. Years ago I went thru not 1, or 2, or 3, or 4, but 5 of them. All DOA, but the Startech brand I chose after the hassle is still chugging along & that was 8 years ago.

    I HATED my Antec HCP-1200. Not a fan.

    Can't wait to see Johnny Guru and [H] have their ways with this unit, hopefully it performs as well as the HCP 1200 and addressees some of it's issues. Fully modular please!

    Meanwhile my Signature 650 chugs along, quiet as ever.

    From the above comments, I am guessing not, but is this one of the brands that is really made by Seasonic? I love my x-750 and wouldn't mind a rebranded version if it is the same quality.

    IIRC Antec doesn't use Seasonic. I think they use CWT and Delta.

    Antec has used Seasonic platforms before. One example is the Neo Eco line.

    You sir just have bad luck, because in no way is *shiver* startech... better then any of Antecs OEMs.

    Lol they want $260 for this? Honestly I don't see it beating the seasonic 1000 platinum.
