The Kingwin Lazer Platinum (LZP) series of power supplies includes five power supplies, all of which are 80PLUS Platinum certified. 80PLUS Platinum isn’t a common standard of power supplies, considering it’s one of the highest efficiency ratings available. 80PLUS Platinum means that the power supplies at 50% load will run at 92% efficiency, 20% load at 90% efficiency and 100% load at 89% efficiency.
The Lazer Platinum 1000W is slightly larger than your typical power supplies, measuring in at 180mm in length. The PSU is cooled by a 140mm white bladed fan, which has a removable grill protecting it. The fan is operated under the ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which will basically only use the fan when it’s needed, to help increase the lifespan of the fan and decrease unnecessary power consumption.
The Lazer Platinum series of PSUs by Kingwin have their own unique modular cable design. Each of the modular cables in the Lazer series can be interchanged with one another, in case you ever need to swap cables. The modular connections are also protected by rubber covers, which is a nice feature to help keep out dust when you’re not using the other connections.
On the side of the PSU is a large sticker, showing the Lazer Platinum logo. On the top is another sticker which shows your standard AC Input/DC Output graph, as well as the certifications other product information.
On the back of the PSU is a honeycomb grill along with your standard power switch, power input and Active PFC switch (115V~250V). The Lazer Platinum 1000W isn’t completely modular. It has several cables which are preconnected to the PSU and well protected by mesh.
The preconnected cables include the 20+4 motherboard power, two 8-pin CPU’S (one 4+4), and two 6+2 pin PCI-E connections. In addition to that you your flat modular cables, which include 3 cables each consisting of two 6+2 PCI-E’s, three cables which include 12 SATA power, and another two cables which include six 4-pin molex connections.
