    Default In Win Classic Series 900W @Toms'Hardware

    In Win's Classic series consists of only two members featuring 750 W and 900 W capacities. The C900 is our test subject today. Besides a great finish and good looks, it promises reliable and quiet operation, along with high efficiency.
    Thanks Aris!

    Not really an attractive PSU, I'd say. There are many much better options.

    Has In Win really got an own factory?
    Whether it's the in- or the outside: Even with PSUs In Win knows what good-looking means.

    Aris, a small typo (I guess): the ADDA fan datasheet link points to a 404 onto the Powerlogic website.
    Best, Luca

    You don't like the looks or the performance?

    It's not really meant for competing with other manufactures on performance and quality for the price of course. The only thing that could use some improvement is the voltage regulation, otherwise it's good enough imo.

    IIRC once Spectre told that's not quite exactly a compliment.

    I really want to like In-Win because they're ballsy and have a certain sense of aesthetic that I've come to appreciate. And they're developing their own PSUs from scratch plus manufacturing them in their entirety - gotta admire that.

    But personal bias aside, this is a mediocre PSU at best. It has at least as many things going against it as those in favor of it. If they slash the pricing by about 30% at the current performance and functionality level, it may have an actual chance on the market. Otherwise, there really are plenty of better choices.

    Still, I hope In-Win carry on and refine their platform(s) further, and I wish them all the best in their efforts.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    I like the looks but with this price tag I expect decent quantity of connectors at least. Performance could also use some tuning.

    Unfortunately InWin always has a problem with stocking enough connectors. It doesn't matter if they produce the unit, or have another OEM build it.
