1300+ Watt Platinum PSU's? - Page 6

According to JhonnyGuru the HCP-1200 is a great PSU and gets around 87% efficiency at 1200 watts.
Was hoping to get into the 89% range while using 1300-1400 watts. Is there any PSU that can do that? I have an email in with Antec about their HCP-1300 Platinum to see if that is going to release anytime soon. Really the only PSU I can see that currently is available that would do close to that number is the Lepa G1600 which does 89.2% efficiency at 1276w. That is pretty impressive and Johnny loves the Lepa (especially for only a Gold rated PSU):

Anyone thing the EVGA NEX 1500w would be able to put up as impressive efficiency numbers as the Lepa G1600? What about the Antec HCP-1300 Platinum? According to Johnny the HCP-1000 Platinum earned an 89.3% efficiency at it's max load of 1000w, so that looks promising for the 1300 Platinum. Plus I think those are Delta units which are top of the line. If the Lepa G1600 is doing about the best you can find I will just go and buy that now.
The Lepa actually shows better efficiency than the new Corsair AX1200i at 1200 watts load. Any thoughts/recommendations or any PSU's that I should also look at for my 1300-1400 watt 89% efficiency goal?


At first I was like ''You dont need 1300 watt you crazy *****'' then I saw your sig rig.

That depends on whether or not someone buys it here wink.gif
Vegas will probably be interested.

I hope your home wiring is up to code. I think 1800W is over spec for the sort of circuit one finds in an average room in a home. Typically, that's only meant to deliver 15A, which at 110V gives only 1650W capacity. Maybe you've hijacked a circuit meant for a hot water heater or something else that gets 20A or more, but I didn't want to assume that.

Mind you, I don't know a whole lot more than these basic numbers when it comes to home electrical wiring, so there could easily be something about this that I'm misunderstanding. Thing is, if I were you, I'd want to be sure.

I hope that is a cue for me to keep my eye on the EVGA store. wink.gif

Seems to be a side effect of the platform - my Maxrevo 1500W sample made that noise, too.
Wink, wink... nudge, nudge...

You guys have a sample of the MkIII under review? If it performs better than the HCP-1200 I may be interested.

All of my circuits are 20A like most new construction these days. Breaker should trip around 2200w. Using the 80% rule though you really aren't suppose to go much over that, or about 1760 watts. I think I'll be alright though.

My breaker is a 15 amps and Im really thinking about changing it and the wires. I have a new construction and I really wonder if my wires are 12 awg.

Got a message back from Antec, HCP-1300 Platinum won't be around until the end of the year.

Vega. I have approximately the same system you have, plus a ton more fans and pumps. biggrin.gif You should go dual-PSU.

I`m taking around 1900 watts from the wall, and using a dual-PSU set-up: Corsair AX1200i + Corsair AX850, dedicated 20A circuit and 20A breaker. Everything is working fine.

Just switched from the Antec HCP-1200 to the Corsair AX1200i and glad I did it. The Antec was way too noisy for me with those heay loads.

I'm waiting for reviews on the new EVGA Supernova before trying it in my system.
