To test the Kingwin Mach 1, we first put the system at idle and used a hand-held multi-meter to ensure the accuracy of our onboard sensors. Then, a load situation consisting of Folding@Home SMP running on the CPU, ATITool 3D visualization running on the GPU, the primary hard-drive defragmenting, and a CD being copied from the optical drive to the secondary drive was maintained on the system while the multi-meter was again used to ensure the accuracy of the readings. For insight into the ripple and stability of each line (3.3V, 5V, 12V and the CPU voltage), we ran an OCCT stress test along with Everest Ultimate for real-time monitoring.

These results are rock-solid and very impressive. Continue on as we draw some conclusions and wrap this review up.
