Super Flower Platinum King 650W PSU Review

The Super Flower Platinum King 650W is a capable power supply and as it is priced below £90 it will target a wide enthusiast audience.

While the appearance of the unit is unlikely to win any awards, it is a clean outward design. The plain black scheme means it will fit into any colour coordinated system build without being an eyesore.

Technically, the unit is solid. It falls within the top 10% of supplies we have tested at this capacity and doesn't exhibit any potentially worrying weakness. Load regulation is pretty good, and ripple suppression falls well within rated industry parameters.

Due to the high levels of efficiency and the large heatsinks inside, the large 120mm fan spins very slowly until the last 20-25% of load and will likely not be heard above 1 or 2 simple case fans. If you own a high end graphics card this power supply would make for a very cost effective, low noise shortlist option.
