Kingwin's $110 Power Force 850W PSU is not as well appointed as other 850W PSUs but is also much lower in price.  With four 6/8 pin PCIe connectors and 8 SATA power connectors some users might feel a bit cramped but with 70A of power on the 12V line it seems that the unit can be useful for many. [H]ard|OCP tested the PSU to see if it is indeed worth the purchase price and were glad to see it pass all their tests, though perhaps not with flying colours.  This is the first Power Force PSU that they have seen, if Kingwin can keep the quality high and the price low they may make some inroads into recognized PSU suppliers.

"While not a "go to" enthusiast brand, Kingwin has produced some excellent computer desktop power supplies over the last five years and these have usually be great values. Does Kingwin continue the trend with its new Power Force 850W model sporting good efficiency, modular cabling, and reasonable pricing."

A platinum rated kilowatt class PSU from Kingwin

For those systems with multiple GPUs and serious storage a 500W PSU just won't cut it, you need to look to the 1000W+ models.   Of course with great power comes great cost, so having an 80 Plus Platinum rating can be a good thing.  The Kingwin LZP-1000 will give you both the power and efficiency with modular cabling to ensure your case stays nice and clean.  At the sticker price of $230 [H]ard|OCP calls this PSU a steal, top notch performance at a bargain price.  Check out this Gold Award winning PSU at [H].

"Kingwin does not bring a huge number of power supplies for review, but when it does bring one to our attention it is usually a very worthy competitor. Today is no different. This new 1 kilowatt computer power supply brandishes sought after modular connections along with a very efficient design that has very much impressed us."

Kingwin's silent and powerful new Stryker 500W PSU

The latest victim of [H]ard|OCP's PSU torture chamber comes from Kingwin; the same fanless 500W Stryker model that Lee reviewed a short while ago.  They were impressed with the so called overclocked mode, which allows the PSU to produce 600W and still manages not only to retain stable rails but also an efficiency rating above 89%.   It soared through their torture test and managed to stay at the rated 0dB, of course.  Their final verdict was very positive, though like Lee they warn that silent PSUs are more expensive and probably won't attract many buyers who can buy the same level of quality in a PSU with active cooling for significantly less money.

"Kingwin, might not be the first name that comes to mind when looking for a top-shelf PSU, but in our testing Kingwin has been very consistent with quality PSU builds. Today we look at its silent 500 watt computer power supply. We all know what happens to computer component cooling when we go silent. Can Kingwin pull off another big win?"

Kingwin aims to deliver silent power with their new 500W Stryker

Not too long ago Lee gave the PC Perspective Gold Seal to the Kingwin Stryker 500W Fanless PSU thanks to the superior power quality and five year warranty.  Just in case you weren't swayed by his testing, you can double check the results over at Think Computers.   They tried the same PSU with a different test machine set up and came up with the same results, a 80PLUS Platinum rated silent PSU that delivers everything you would expect.  Their only negative point was the same as Lee's, the price is more than double the cost of an equivalent PSU with active cooling.  You have to pay a premium for this type of PSU but it is worth it if you need it.

"Almost everyone wants the quietest yet most powerful computer possible. Most components generate noise because of the fans cooling them, or because of moving parts. Obviously, solid state drives have eliminated the necessity for moving parts for storage and liquid cooling can replace fans for most components. However, there’s still one pesky component which still generates noise: the high wattage power supply unit. Fanless PSUs have been around for a while, but they’re generally lower wattage and meant for business machines or ultra-efficient HTPCs."

It's not just a PSU, it's a Lazer Platinum PSU

Tagged: Kingwin, PSU, super flower

PSU naming schemes are getting a little ridiculous, trying to state that the Lazer Platinum is a Super Flower Gold King with a straight face is not easy.  The names aside, Kingwin's latest PSU offers features that will make you sit up with interest.  The efficiency of the PSU is above 90% in all but a few low load scenarios and the cooling fan hardly ever turns on thanks to a very good design.  You will pay more for the Kingwin LZP-550 Lazer Platinum but as far as TechPowerUp is concerned it is a worthy investment.

"The Kingwin Lazer Platinum LZP-550 is based on Super Flower's platinum platform (Golden King 550W) and according to the manufacturer achieves over 92% efficiency. The power supply's fan will only spin beyond a certain temperature, so the PSU will emit no noise at low loads. In our review we find that this power supply is the best model available in its power range at this time."
