    Yeah that's some pretty impressive stuff. The soldering seems a little bland, but that doesn't really matter, as it didn't look terrible in any spot.

    Yup. Superflower did a great job this time. However, I wonder if this unit will be manufactured in quantity.

    To be honest; this unit is probably a demo to show that "Yes we can do 80+ Platinum, and yes we can do it well!"

    I doubt SuperFlower will make this unit in quantity for their own sales; but most likely using this to hook potential (and current) OEM partners.

    So far, from Kingwin there's only been a year or so delay between the Mach 1, Lazer, & Lazer gold.
    So who knows, maybe we'll see this unit from them by the end of the year.

    I think you are right.

    By the way, do you have any idea who else Superfower makes PSUs for besides Kingwin?

    XION / AXP / Azza (all units)
    NZXT's (Hale90 line)
    Rosewill (Lightning Series)
    Akasa (Freedom Power)
    Nox (all units)

    There's probably one or two guys I'm missing. But that's all I can pull from memory.

    I'd buy it, or a 650W version for my system anyway. And I'd spend good money too. Hell, I wrote a post about wanting high end low-wattage PSUs a while back, and this is like a checklist of all the features/performance I wanted, plus Platinum efficiency instead of my minimum of Bronze.
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,
    My PSU in a box, baby!
