In Win GreenMe 650Wby Martin Kaffei on June 6, 2012 5:10 AM EST

Delivery Contents, Power Rating and Fan
The unit we are reviewing today is manufactured by In Win itself. It comes in a unique green package (100% recyclable) with all the extras a power supply should have. There is a power cord, manual, screws, and some cable ties in the box. Features include the 80Plus Bronze certification ("Up to 85%" efficiency), various protective functions and a 3-year warranty.
The four 12V outputs are each rated at 25 amps, although In Win has almost certainly set the OCP a little higher. The label shows the 3.3V and 5V rails at 25A as well. Together these two outputs provide 120W. This might seem a little low, but most systems don't need much power from the lower voltage rails anymore. The power rating on 12V is very high.
In Win uses a fan from ADDA with the model number AD1212LB-A70GL. ADDA is an often used company that delivers decent fans for power supplies. This double ball bearing type fan has a peak power consumption of 2,88W. It can spin at up to 1400RPM, which is not much. It shouldn't get too loud during operation, taking into account, that ADDA fans are prone to bearing noises.

araczynski - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkanother 'non profit' cause of the hour. wouldn't be surprised if this WWF and InWin have some family connection.
i'd be more impressed if each $1 got split by the employees inhaling all those production fumes created during manufacturing of these things.

Did you forget your journalistic integrity in your other pants or something?

I sold my integrity for an ecofriendly Porsche Cayenne Turbo !
Oh, I said the loud part soft and the soft part loud.
Rorrr - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkIs this an attempt at a joke?
ggathagan - Thursday, June 7, 2012 - linkNo, it IS a joke!
Thank you, Martin.
Rorrr - Thursday, June 7, 2012 - linkMore like a bad attempt at snark. Anandtech should stick to tech, which is what it does best; leave the political and scientific commentary to other sites like Ars.
effingee - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkOh, wow! Tell me all about your Porche, but don't forget to throw in a random line about your opinion on collective bargaining for public service unions, too, so I'll know which Porsche to buy and who to vote for in my state primary election.
If you're going to write a tech review, cool, write a tech review. If you're going to write a review of the World Wildlife Foundation, do it on your blog or something. Those two sentences about what you think about the WWF, factual or not, have no business in a review of a power supply. Let your readers think for themselves.
LordOfTheBoired - Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - linkActually, I think they do when the supply's big "feature" is that a portion of all sales go to the WWF.
I've got no idea on how credible the WWF is(though they apparently funded the hiring of mercenaries to hunt poachers, which is awesome), but I really hate this sort of feel-good marketing.
At best it's a band-aid for the end user's conscience that lets them pretend they care without actually doing anything. More aggressive forms can come off as emotional blackmail(buy our stuff or children will starve in Africa!).
If they were really worried about the environment, they'd just say "In Win donates 10% of their net profit each year to the WWF" or some such.
And, you know, ship power supplies that are 80 Plus Platinum instead of 80 Plus Bronze.
