Default Kingwin LZP-1000 Review @ TPU

I was busy playing ME3 today, but Cmaris' review of the LZP-1000 went up today.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/K...ZP-1000/1.html


Unrelated to the unit, but you're writing has vastly improved in terms of sounding like a native English speaker wrote it. So great job man.

I do have a question though; why did you say the 5vSB rail was weak?

Thanks! The number of reviews I have made so far greatly helped me improve my English skills
The thing is that now I start to forget Greek

To the point now, I think that the 5VSB rail is weak because it has only 12.5W capacity. In a 1KW PSU I expected more power out of this rail. I noted the same on the Super Flower Golden King 1000W review, too.

OTOH, +5VSB achieves very good regulation. It makes me wonder if it isn't one of those artificial "limit capacity to get better results in tests".

That's what I thought, but I never saw that point expounded in the review.

As I looked back at Vreg & Ripple, and that specific area is top performing for SuperFlower.

As for 5vSB limitations; I've yet to really run into a scenario where that's a problem. As most boards I have owned over the last 2-3 years just use the normal 5v rail to power USB devices, some offering software (BIOS) based options to change which rail powers what, or physical jumpers to do it.

In S3 standby mode the memory modules are powered by 5VSB rail, so if you have a dozen DIMMs in your machine you need a beefy 5VSB, otherwise 2.5A will be sufficient.

I've never had an issue with my 1.65v / 6 sticks of DDR3 on my x58 board, but I imagine such an issue would be limited to server/workstation dual CPU boards.
