A Detailed Look
The Antec HCG-900 power supply features a new attention-grabbing red and black color scheme and the steel enclosure measures 7.1″ (180mm) deep.

The backside panel features an open grill area and includes a power receptacle and master On-Off switch.  The honey comb grill on the back allows air to exhaust out of the power supply with minimal restriction and turbulence.

The 135mm cooling fan is located on the top of the PSU and blows cooling air in and out the back.  The fan speed is automatically controlled (speeds up as the combined load increases) via an onboard controller.  The double ball bearing fan is manufactured by Adda (ADN512UB-A90) and is rated for .44A when operating at 12 VDC.

The Antec HCG-900 power supply comes with a basic assortment of hard wired cables and connectors, which seems a little light for a 900W PSU IMHO.  All of the cables are covered with black plastic mesh sleeving.  I was a little surprised to find only one 8-pin EPS12V connector instead of two and only four PCI-E connectors instead of six on a 900W PSU.  I suppose most gamers will most likely be interested in powering a single CPU system with dual high-end graphic adapters so supplying the extra cables might be considered overkill.  This also helps differentiate the High Current Gamer series from the High Current Pro series, which does offer more cables/connectors.
