Introduction

 

Now that we have taken an in-depth look at one of the most efficient offerings from Kingwin with the Lazer Platinum 550W power supply, we are taking a look at something a little more enthusiast related in terms of overall output this time. The unit on the test bench today is the Kingwin LZG-1000. It is a 1000W power supply capable of delivering power with 80Plus Gold efficiency.

 

The LZG-1000 features a mix of native and modular cabling that should allow you to easily power all but the most power hungry multi-GPU systems. Let's start taking a look at some of the specs of the LZG-1000.

 

 

Specifications, Availability and Pricing

Kingwin's LZG-1000 is capable of outputting 99% of its power on the 12V rail. The unit features a single 12V rail rated for 83A. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for 24A each with a combined total output of 120W. Add in the -12V and 5VSB and you've got a total combined output of 1000W. While the minor rails may be enough for most modern days systems, those who choose to utilize the LZG-1000 in an older system that relies on a lot of 5V power might want to be a little careful here.

The Kingwin LZG-1000 doesn't quite offer the complete list of features that we check for, but it does manage to hit a large majority of them. Of the protections we check for, the LZG-1000 doesn't provide anything for over temperature situations. It also isn't rated for 50C, but instead a rather modest 40C. Other than those two things, it has our feature list covered with the fully sleeved native and modular cabling, 80Plus Gold certification and lots of protections.

 

Kingwin's LZP-1000 is readily available at just about any place you'd like and lists with an MSRP of $189.99 (the same as what Newegg is asking for it). That isn't the cheapest that you can get it. As usual, some quick searching will yield a much lower result. This time around we were able to find it for $170 at Overstock.com. Kingwin backs the LZG-1000 with a 3-year warranty. It's a shame there isn't a longer warranty on the unit.
