In Win GreenMe 650W
In Win sent us their newest model GreenMe rated at 650W. Billed as an eco-friendly alternative to the usual PSUs, In Win boasts about the reduced energy costs associated with the high efficiency design. Given the eco emphasis, we'll examine how the PSU does in those areas along with the usual tests.
In Win uses an environmental friendly packaging composed of recycled materials. There's also a sticker stating that the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) gets one dollar for every GreenMe sold. However, there is some debate over how WWF is funded, with allegations that they have questionable industry ties. Regardless of whether that's true or not, we do like the idea of helping environmental associations.
The real question of course is how environmentally friends the GreenMe PSU line is in practice. Is 80 Plus Bronzer efficient enough for energy conservationists? And where are the lower power models, as a "green PC" probably doesn't need 650W? We'll leave the debate on those areas up to the reader; for now, let's see what you get with the GreenMe and how it performs.

Shadowmaster625 - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkTo stick a green label on something that burns 20+ watts in the process of supplying 75? It's hard to even fathom how a modern power supply could be so inefficient.
Jedi2155 - Thursday, June 7, 2012 - linkTry and build something better then.

Epicac - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkDo we listen to you or the thousands of qualified scientists all over the world with the same conclusions.
shin0bi272 - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkor do we listen to the other thousands of scientists that disagree with the conclusions drawn from the man made global warming scientists? You know guys like the Nasa, the head of the weather channel (who's changed his mind back and forth), or college professors from various colleges that didnt get a government grant for there to be global warming. Or maybe youre just a fan of Van Jones who is an admitted communist revolutionary and felon and 9/11 truther who said "I went from red to green." where he could "drop the radical pose for the much deeper satisfaction of the radical ends." He didnt want to "put a new battery [green tech] in an old system [capitalism]. No, we gonna change the whole thing."
The sooner you realize that man made global warming is all about legislation, money, and control of your life the better you'll be. Or maybe you believe that you shouldnt have kids because it would help limit the carbon footprint you leave behind... 1 child policy in America wont ever happen right? right?
