Antec’s HCP-850unifies raw power with advanced PSU engineering to meet the demands of high performing PCs. Afull-featured,80 PLUS®Gold-certifiedunit, theHCP-850is capable of outputting 99 percent of its rated power on four +12V rails, ensuring CPU and graphics card compatibility. Exclusive to the High Current series,HCP-850boasts High Currentheavy-gauge16 AWG wiring that boosts conductivity, increasing efficiency and improving power delivery. In addition, adouble-layerPCB, onboardDC-to-DCconverters and Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) provide substantial voltage stability. To tackle the needs of your system, pick up Antec’sHCP-850.
The connectors and power specifications of the HCP-850PSU are all compatible with ATX12V v2.3 and EPS12V v2.92 specifications. TheHCP-850features Universal Input, which automatically senses when you connect the power supply to any AC power source between 100 - 240V without setting a voltage switch. This power supply also features Active Power Factor Correction (PFC), which improves the power factor value of the power supply by altering the input current wave shape, helping to power transmission across the grid.
A variety of industrial-gradesafety circuitry will help protect your computer: Over Current Protection (OCP), Over Voltage Protection (OVP), Short Circuit Protection (SCP), Over Power Protection (OPP) and Over Temperature Protection (OTP). Sometimes the PSU will “latch” into a protected state. You will need to power off the PSU and clear the fault before it will function again. There are nouser-replaceablefuses in yourHCP-850.
SPECIALQUIETCOMPUTING™ PULSEWIDTHMODULATION(PWM) FAN
A PWM fan can spin much more slowly and be quieter than a voltage-controlledfan. The PSU uses a PWM fan that can spin as slow as 260 RPM or as fast as 2600 RPM, depending on load and ambient temperature. The PSU will vary the fan speed depending on the load of your computer and should be nearly inaudible when your computer is idling. The location of the PSU fan also helps to reduce the sound emitted by your computer.
80 PLUS® CERTIFICATION
80 PLUS® certification is the most widely recognized independent standard in power supply efficiency. An 80 PLUS® certified power supply uses less energy and generates less heat to stay cooler, run quieter and last longer. The HCP-850has been 80 PLUS® Gold certified to be at least 87% efficient at a wide range of operating loads; this will lower your operating costs and help protect the environment.
NVIDIA™ SLI™-READY CERTIFIED
Antec’s HCP-850is NVIDIA™SLI™-Readyand ATI CrossFireX™ certified for use with multiplehigh-endgraphics cards for superior parallel graphics processing.
The HCP-850power supply distributes power on separate rails. To see the output capacity and regulation for each different voltage, see Table 1.

The HCP-850uses Intelligent Hybrid Cable Management. Cables that are important or mandatory are permanently connected to the PSU for the highest quality power delivery. There are modular jacks on the back of the PSU to add additional cables as needed. Using only the cables you need will reduce clutter and improve airflow inside your case. For the list of connected and optional cables, see Table 3.
There are three 5-pinblack jacks and five10-pinred jacks on the back of yourHCP-850PSU. These jacks are for the optional cables that come with your power supply. A modular10-pinconnector system allows you plug5-pinconnectors into the10-pinjacks if you run out of5-pinjacks.
The HCP-850uses four separate +12 volt power rails. Different connectors are hooked up to separate circuits to aid in the balanced distribution of power between devices in your computer. The +12V rails have been assigned to different connectors, as shown in Table 2, to prevent voltage sags in one device due to sudden demands for power by another device.

1.Install the HCP-850PSU into either the top or bottom of your case with the four screws provided. Refer to your case manual if you are unsur e where the power supply should be installed.
2.Install the HCP-850PSU into your case with the four screws provided.
3.Connect the 24-pinmain power connector to your motherboard. If your motherb oard uses a20-pinconnector, detach the4-pinattach ment on the24-pinconnector.
Note: The detachable 4-pinsectio n cannot be used in place of a4-pin+12V connector.
4.Connect the 8-pinor4+4-pinconn ector for the CPU. If your motherboard has an8-pinsocket with a cover on some of the openings, we recomm end that you remove the cover and use the8-pinconnector.
Note: Please also refer to your motherboard user’s manual for any special instructions.
5.Connect extra cables from the ca ble pack to the sockets on the power supply only if nee ded. If you are going to plug the PCI-Ecables into the P SU, they should go into the red sockets. If the red sockets are not being used forPCI-E,then they can be used fo r any other type of cable supplied in the pack that accom panies the PSU.
6.Connect the AC power cord to the power supply AC inlet. Be sure to use the heavy-duty cord supplied with yourHCP-850.
7.PCI-Egraphics cards use different amounts of power. For some, a single6-pinconnector is sufficient, making the hardwired connector the preferred choice. More powerful cards use multiple conn ctors, including the advanced8-pinPCI-Econnector. T he8-pinPCI-Econnector on theHCP-850can be used as either a 6- or8-pinconnector.
8.Hard drives, optical drives (CD/DVD/BluRay™) and other accessories will use either the older 4-pinMolex connector or the newer15-pinSATA connector.4-pinMolex connectors have two black, one yellow and one red wire. The SATA connector has an additional orange power wire.
9.When you have all the connections secured, turn the switch on the PSU to the “|” position.
