“In true PC Apex fashion, I’ve voided the warranty to give you a good look at the internals. The heatsinks are not as large as others I’ve seen, but they are heavy duty. The soldered connections were done very solid with no visual defects noted. The fans are connected via removable connectors rather than soldered directly to the PCB which is nice for those who would like to use this power supply in a custom PC but change the fans for a different color scheme. Build quality was superb and all components were positioned well for optimum cooling.”

Sure, having a 1300W PSU is impressive, but the chances are very good that even the dream righ you have in your head isn’t going to need that much power. 600W seems to be enough to power most systems, as long as that 600W PSU is of high quality. The KingWin Mach 1 600W PSU fits that bill and more, it has modular cabling and some seriously bright blue LEDs. PCApex also appreciated the full 20A available on both of the 12V rails.
