Kolink Continuum 1200 W Review

A Look Inside & Component Analysis »

Packaging


The box has a rather serious graphics design, and at its face are not only pictures of the PSU but icons for its 80 PLUS efficiency level, five year warranty, and ErP compatibility, meaning vampire power is kept below 0.5 W.


The power specifications table is listed on one of the box's sides.


Around the back, the well-trained eye will notice that this unit is imported by Caseking Kellytech, a company based in Budapest. It is also stated that the product's design and quality control is done in Europe, while the manufacturing process takes place in China (as per usual). It is nice to see that quality control is taken care of in a European facility.

Contents


The PSU is protected by foam inside the box, and the quite thick power cord is stored in a separate compartment. There is a smaller box inside the package with all the accessories and necessary modular cables.


The bundle includes several zip ties, a set of screws, a small user's manual, and all the cabling.

Exterior


This is a normal-looking PSU since it follows the classic external design lines. However, we don't care much for its external appearance. In PSUs, the design of their platform is what matters the most, and that design is tucked away inside. At the front is a large power switch, installed right next to the AC socket.


A sticker on a side shows the power specifications table, while another depicts the model number and efficiency certification.


There are plenty of modular sockets on the PSU's rear side. The PCIe and EPS cables use the same sockets, which are painted red.


The dimensions are normal for a 1.2 kW PSU, and with another fan grille, the looks of this unit could be hugely improved.

Cables


All cables are completely black and flat, which is good, in our opinion at least. We also noticed a very strange thing here: Although the EPS and PCIe cables are listed as 16AWG on their gauges, the actual wire's thickness is 18AWG. This is the first time we see a misleading number on a gauge, but we guess there is a first time for everything!
