In Win GreenMe 650W

In Win sent us their newest model GreenMe rated at 650W. Billed as an eco-friendly alternative to the usual PSUs, In Win boasts about the reduced energy costs associated with the high efficiency design. Given the eco emphasis, we'll examine how the PSU does in those areas along with the usual tests.

In Win uses an environmental friendly packaging composed of recycled materials. There's also a sticker stating that the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) gets one dollar for every GreenMe sold. However, there is some debate over how WWF is funded, with allegations that they have questionable industry ties. Regardless of whether that's true or not, we do like the idea of helping environmental associations.

The real question of course is how environmentally friends the GreenMe PSU line is in practice. Is 80 Plus Bronzer efficient enough for energy conservationists? And where are the lower power models, as a "green PC" probably doesn't need 650W? We'll leave the debate on those areas up to the reader; for now, let's see what you get with the GreenMe and how it performs.

    This org is dedicated to the demise of our society through false reporting of
    so called ecological facts. It is an example of a modern "wolf in sheep's
    clothing". The donation is to WWF is sufficient enough for me to not ever purchase anything from IN Win.

    Or the World-Wide Wrestling Federation. Can you imagine getting body slammed every time you littered? The world would get a lot cleaner, a lot quicker. Reply

    ...where hopelessly over-dimensioned power supplies start at 650W.

    Seriously. I can't remember when AT did a review of anything below this margin...
    Enthusiast-shmusiast. Most people have 1 mid-range GPU and something along the lines of an Phenom II X955 / i5-2500K - mine never draws more than 240W tops...

    Why the hell would I be interested in 1200W power supplies, when my usual power draw is less than 10% of that?

    THIS is a power supply I'm interested in:
    Bequiet E9-400W, Gold-rated, perfectly silent cooling.
