Almost everyone wants the quietest yet most powerful computer possible. Most components generate noise because of the fans cooling them, or because of moving parts. Obviously, solid state drives have eliminated the necessity for moving parts for storage and liquid cooling can replace fans for most components. However, there’s still one pesky component which still generates noise: the high wattage power supply unit. Fanless PSUs have been around for a while, but they’re generally lower wattage and meant for business machines or ultra-efficient HTPCs.
The thing that certainly stands out the most about Kingwin’s Lazer Platinum Power Supply is certainly the 80 Plus Platinum certification printed right on the front of the box. Platinum is the highest level of CSCI certification, which means, in a nutshell, that it one of the most efficient PSU’s on the market and will help your PC’s lifespan last longer with greatly reduced heat.
Another great feature is the ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which will help keep maximum cooling performance while maintaining minimal fan noise by preventing fan rotation, unless the temperature reaches around 70 Degrees Celsius. The unit was also designed with high end GPU performance in mind with two 6 Pin and two 6+2 Pin PCI connections. Let’s take a look.

Antec, a name that is well known and trusted by computer enthusiasts around the world. They have been designing and manufacturing top notch power supplies, enclosures, and cooling accessories for almost 25 years. I have built numerous computers using their products over the years and have always been satisfied, and at times, impressed by them. Today we are looking at one of their latest entries into the computer enclosure market and the newest member of the Lanboy famly of products, the Lanboy Air Blue.
Before we get into the details, we need to take a good hard look at the overall design of this case because trust me, it is like no other case you have ever seen. It is modular and customizable. What does that mean? It means that pretty much every piece can be removed and repositioned to give you somewhere in the area of 35 trillion different ways to configure the case. Yes, I said trillion. That is a very big number.
