What you get

Kingwin's Mach 1 package opens up into a neatly laid out box of modular lines for the power supply itself along with an instruction booklet and wall cable.  The modular lines included with the Kingwin Mach 1 are three Molex lines, a SATA line and PCI-E line.  Looking more closely at them you can see that they appear rounded.  That is because they are.

The unit

The Kingwin Mach 1 power supply boasts a full service 600 watts.  That should be plenty of juice for even the most robust of systems.  Aesthetically, the unit is a nickel plated gun metal grey color with two blue tinted side windows.  The base itself is almost completely taken up by its large blue LED 120mm cooling fan with a smaller blue 80mm LED intake fan on the rear wall.
