Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The Kingwin Mach 1 ABT-1000MA1S PSU with modular cable management delivered good voltage regulation (especially on the important +12V rails) with relatively clean outputs. The efficiency however wasn’t quite as good as we would expect to see from an 80 Plus Bronze certified unit.  The Mach 1 PSU is quiet, includes a good assortment of both fixed and modular cables/connectors, and features a black-chrome finish with blue LED lighting for added visual impact. 

The Kingwin Mach 1 ABT-1000MA1S PSU is currently available and typically sells for less than $200 USD, which makes it an attractive value for a 1,000W PSU.
