Cabling Arrangement

Cabling for the HCG-620M is a good mix of functionality and flexibility. Out of the box it comes with the 20+4 pin main and single ATX 4+4 cables natively wired. Modular cables include two 6+2pin PCI-E cables, two SATA cables, one Molex cable and one Molex + FDD cable.

Antec also offers additional PCI-E cables that can be purchased to give you two more PCI-E connectors and allow for the use of multiple video cards, but this does come at the cost of losing two peripheral cables. Not exactly the most ideal solution, but at least it is an option.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail.

A Look Inside

Cooling is kept simple with a pair of heatsinks running front to back.

A single Nippon Chemi-Con cap adorns the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side uses a mix of capacitors. Here we see a Rubycon cap.

Moving over a little bit we find the Nippon Chemi-Con's are present as well.

Antec uses the 135mm ADDA ADN512MB-A90 fan to provide cooling for the HCG-620M.
