Today we've got another newcomer to our bench that few in the USA have probably heard of. AZZA is a company founded in 1996 as a motherboard manufacturer. They had worked their way up to one of the top ten suppliers globally in the 90's and in 2004 decided to expand into PC cases. In 2009 the company restructured and began selling products under their own name. AZZA also takes pride in giving back to the community and donates a minimum of 50% of their profits to the One Vision, One Mission charity program, sponsoring under-privileged children who are in need of help, nourishment and education.
We've got their new AZZA Platinum 1000W power supply on the bench today and are pretty confident that it will have solid results. The power supply itself is a rebranded Super Flower Golden King that we have seen from at least six other manufactures so we are already quite familiar with what the power supply should have to offer.
Let's dig into this one and see how it stacks up to the others.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Knowing that this is a Super Flower rebrand, we can see that I/O specifications are identical to what Super Flower lists the unit as having. There is a single 12V rail for providing a majority of the power. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for 20A each with a combined maximum output of 100W. The 5VSB rail is rated for a measly 2.5A or 12.5W. Maximum combined output for the AZZA 1000W Platinum is 1000W.
AZZA's features for the Platinum 1000W are also identical to the Super Flower reference design. The power supply features SCP, OVP and OPP, but lacks OCP and OTP. It also features both native and modular cabling, all of which is either fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon type. AZZA rates the power supply for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency, but does not rate it for 100% continuous output at 50C.
AZZA lists the Platinum 1000W for $229.99. That puts it at a very comparative price point with other 1000W Platinum rated power supplies. Newegg currently has the AZZA Platinum 1000W list for $201.29 after mail-in rebate and shipping, which makes it a much more attractive deal and about $15 cheaper than other similar power supplies. Warranty for the AZZA Platinum 1000W is a measly three years. We find this somewhat crappy to say the least, especially since Super Flower lists the unit with a five year warranty.
