In Win Commander III 600 W Review

Specifications »


We would like to thank In Win for supplying the review sample.

After two generations In Win still insists on the Commander naming-scheme instead of promoting their fresh PSUs to generals or chiefs! However, they made them ready for desert battlefields by utilizing a sandy, tactile finish. A PSU ready for some warzone action and a highly customizable chassis does sound interesting, and the Commander III's unique coloring scheme may excite some users while turning off others that dislike such a "warlike" theme.

The new Commander III series consists of three units with capacities ranging from 600 W to 800 W. All feature 80 Plus Gold efficiency, a modular cabling system, share the same dimensions, design, and the unique coloring scheme. Today, we will evaluate the smallest of the new Commanders featuring 600 W maximum rated power. It can deliver most of its power on four +12V rails. The Commander III is a medium-capacity PSU that can support up to two high-end VGAs with its 600 W capacity and four PCIe connectors. This is pretty interesting because most manufacturers only equip a PSU of such a capacity with two PCIe connectors which cripples the PSU's usability, and that forces users looking for four connectors into a higher-capacity category with PSUs that aren't as efficient at low loads due to their increased wattage output. So buy a PSU that suits your needs when you are out searching for one. Don't buy one that clearly outputs too much power for your system and its components.

Let's skip to the second page to take a look at the Commander's specifications.
