In Win Commander 1200w

Overall Score

It may look good on the outside, but what’s inside is what counts. We couldn’t even wait to test it, we had to see what made it tick.

Pulling apart the casing, the first thing we see is a large 7 bladed 14cm Yate Loon fan. If you’re a computer hardware enthusiast, I’m sure you’re familiar with Yate Loon. If not, check them out for your next fan purchase, as they are a very good value.

It appears that the In Win 1200w is a variant of a Channel Well Technology (CWT) design. What does that mean? Well, CWT is a large manufacturer of computer power supplies that does not sell their products under their own brand name. Instead, other companies contract them to build power supplies, which are then rebranded as their own. (Many Corsair PSUs are also a CWT design)

Looking at the innards, it appears to be a somewhat unusual design. Look carefully, and you can see that the PSU is quite symmetrical. In fact, symmetrical enough that it appears that this could be two PSUs in one. This is not a coincedence. As the label will later confirm, this is actually two 600w PSUs crammed into the space normally occupied by one. How will this affect performance? We’re not sure, but we’ll find out.

While we’re inside the PSU, though, let’s take a look at the rest of the components. From this picture, we can easily see that the primary capacitors are from Hitachi, a very good brand.

All of the other capacitors inside of the unit are either the solid polymer type, or come from another reputable company- Nippon Chemicon.

Overall, the interior components look to be high quality. Judging by what we’ve seen, this PSU should be very robust and work well. We’ll see if it stands up to the Sunmoon testing.
