    Arrow Deepcool DQ1250 Review

    Deepcool comes to us again with their new flagship model in the Quanta line of units: the DQ1250. This is our second look at the offerings from this brand new entrant into the power supply arena, and you may recall the 750W model doing pretty well for itself. Let's see if the same is true of this 1250 watt 80 Plus Platinum monster of a unit.

    I don't see why companies seem to do this more often on their first 1Kw+ units, where they include a power cable that's undersized for the job...

    It just seems like a basic oversight on more than one account.

    Maybe because of 230V in their home country? Ok, for 1250W that's not the full explanation.

    The main PWM controller is this here UCC28070.
    Sure? I think it's the interleaved CCM PFC controller.

    The PWM IC must be CM6901X.

    Another CWT unit, utterly unimpressive, not worth mentioning as it's nothing that special...

    OK, it has at least two rails, wich is better than one big single rail but still, not worth it as it comes from CWT...

    Is CWT not any good anymore? I know theyve never been elite like Delta/Seasonic/Superflower but I thought they used to be pretty solid. My Corsair TX750 is a CWT built unit and its been working just fine these last 4+ years.

    They can be OK, but I've seen some pretty horrendous blunders from them before. My first Thermaltake Evo Blue 2.0 750W had a ~5mm long component pin which was bent over and shorting on another trace and the fan-delay-off PCB connector was unplugged.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    I think it's funny that you group Seasonic and Super Flower with Delta. ;-)

    They never were that good.
    The only upside CWT has as a manufacturer is small MOQ and rather cheap prices. Other than that, you'd not want them to manufacture your shit...

    That depends on how the moon stands and so on. Some CWT units can be half way decent, others are big fails, you knever really know...

    Even utter crap units like lowest end Huntkey LC6550 lasted that long...

    But in the end you can never know how good or bad someone is or is not..
