    Kingwin 600W PSU on GTX 295

    Alongside a Q9450 (possibly Q9550).

    PSU: KINGWIN Mach 1 600W (sorry, can't post url which has specs but google search should reveal them).

    No OC'ing will be done.

    Any ideas if the combination would be a stable one? Some people have managed to run theirs on 600W setups.

    This has to be the first time I've heard of Kingwin, so I'm not too sure how good the quality is. I have found one review though

    http://www.overclockercafe.com/Revie...ach1/index.htm

    A GTX 295 on system load would consume about 350 watts + so I would say a good quality 600watt psu would do the job fine.

    Thanks shadowmaster.

    It is a decent brand. I was under the impression that amperage on the 12V line would be the deciding factor?

    From what I remember, Kingwin make very good PSUs but they're only distributed in the USA IIRC so we haven't heard much if anything at all from them in the UK.

    I believe the system should be fine, especially as no OC'ing will be done.

    Has poor efficiency and no Active PFC so its going to pull 50W if not more to run then a more efficient PSU.
