When powered up, there are four LEDs that illuminate the blades:

In use, I found it very quiet, most likely because I do not have a system that can stress this power supply to its max output – the fan barely ticked over. The fan monitors temps so as the load increases, the fan will speed up – even under stress (such as it was), the fan was not noticeable.

CONCLUSIONS

Kingwin’s’s Mach 1 1000 Watt Power Supply appears to be a sound addition for those power hungry PCs that are loaded with extras.

Thanks again to Kingwin for sending this our way – a nice unit!
