Under the hood, the In Win Classic series PSUs feature single +12V rail design, with 80 Plus Platinum switching efficiency, a suite of electrical protection mechanisms, active-PFC, and support for ATX v2.4/EPS2.92 standards. The units are cooled by 120 mm temperature-activated fans. The In Win C-750W is priced at 169.90€, while the C-900W goes for 194.90€ (including taxes). Both models are backed by 7-year warranties.

This package needs to be redone.

750W / 900W info can be misleading.

It's cost cutting, using the same box to package both, and then check the side to see contents.

Would make sense if components were connected to the PSU walls for passive cooling.

How quickly is that finish going to get marred up in real world installations?

This is a expensive psu, no need to "try" looks like is cheaper, specially we are talking about high-end niche.

sorry, english sucks.

well why not...? they look better since quite a long time, my Enermax CoolerGiant 480 (2004) is also that kind

it has his charm on a high end PSU and it kinda justify the price over the other same wattage same efficiency, made of any kind of flimsy metal :laugh:



good looking one indeed, and not all about the look, In Win do some quite nice PSU (they need no OEM ) one of my favorite PSU until my actual Seasonic M12II, was a In Win Commander III Desert Fox 700w 80+ Gold (one of the cheapest gold at the time and semi modular )

"strictly average voltage regulation"
as a mediocre...

the bad point is not a deal breaker and the good point balance all the negatives (well ... 1 negative and 1 mediocre) just quite right ...

plus the price is not that high ... that 900w $ price is only 74.40$ more than my 750w Seasonic M12II 750 Evo Bronze which is correct.

more a "quite good" than a "not bad" ;)

How to ridiculously overprice a regular PSU 101

... just add shinies.

well the 750w is only 40-50$~ more than my Seasonic M12II 750 Evo (and that one is a Bronze ... ), a premium over it for a massive aluminum casing and a platinum label, but not a ridiculously high overprice.

i'd say it's almost priced right for the performances/look/build quality given.

Certainly no judgement from me. I paid over $100 for only 460w but it was also Platinum, fully modular and fan-less. If I had a window I'd also be considering the look too.

Any word on what manufacturer these In-Win PSU's are from? All I could find is 'Powerman' which strikes me as vaguely unreliable and unknown, ie Chinese bulk / budget tier.

If these are not high quality/high reliability PSUs from one of the known manufacturers, this is heavily overpriced regardless of how good it looks :)

They are from InWin, they do them themselves, they don't need an OEM and most InWin PSU's get good reviews.

From personal experiences i can recommend them, usually, and if i need to replace my M12II that one is a good candidate, for a small up in price and 80+ label (bronze to platinum ahahah)

Ehhh no, don't spread nonsense please

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=246

It says the manufacturer is Channel Well (CWT) and/or Andyson.

Have yet to find review for this specific unit but this makes it very clear that In-Win does NOT build its own PSUs - just like many other brands who don't, like Corsair, EVGA, and most other big brands.

I would be very surprised if they would anyway because they started making cases, that's a pretty different ball game.

Ehhh yes.

"The manufacturer of the PSU is In Win: one of the few unofficial OEM companies that has the know-how and the facilities to build their own PSUs."
https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/InWin/CommanderIII_600W/4.html

"In Win makes the GreenMe units and most of the other PSUs they offer themselves since they have the necessary expertise and the production lines to build PSUs. "
https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/InWin/GreenMe_750/4.html

for lower grade or older PSU, maybe but i ain't spreading any nonsense :mad: and i never take in consideration lower grade ... otherwise i would buy Corsair CX line

InWin is maybe not Seasonic or SuperFlower (leadex in mind) or FSP but they do good PSU themselves, and i never had any issues with a Commander III Desert Fox 700w while i saw some Corsair HX fail in similarly built rigs than the one i had at that time.

I stand corrected! My apologies

They still aren't as good as the competition at this price point though, it seems. Ripple, hold-up time seem to be on the méh side. So far the article doesn't clarify if this specific unit is their own design or not

well they aren't bad either, with my Seasonic the Commander III Desert Fox was one of the best (and cheapest) gold unit, albeit the Seasonic being a rather pricy bronze unit, i could find and i did use it with a GTX 580 Matrix Platinum SLI (955 core) and a 4.0 i7-920 (and it was a 700W) so far no hiccups and quite good for the money paid (about the same as my M12II )

for that particular unit, from what i've read it seems a Seasonic inspired home design, but it's indeed not specified at all if it is, or not, their own design, but from what i've gathered about recent InWin PSU most high end from them are "in house" model
and the review, for that one, on Jonny is not bad at all
