Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Commander III power supply series from In Win, also known as “Desert Fox,” has 600 W, 700 W, and 800 W models, all with the 80 Plus Gold certification and a modular cabling system. Let’s take an in-depth look at the 700 W version.

The Commander III power supplies are really manufactured by In Win.

The In Win Commander III 700 W is 6.3” (160 mm) deep. It uses a 135 mm ball-bearing fan on its bottom (ADDA ADN512LB-A90).

The modular cabling system from this power supply has five connectors: one for video cards and four for peripheral and SATA connectors. This power supply comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 21.3” (54 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 24.8” (63 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with two six/eight-pin connectors for video cards, 18.9” (48 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with two six/eight-pin connectors for video cards, 19.9” (50.5 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system
  • Three cables, each with three SATA power connectors, 19.7” (50 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system
  • One cable with three peripheral power connectors and one floppy disk drive power connector, 19.7” (50 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors, modular cabling system

All wires are 18 AWG, which is the minimum recommended gauge, except for the video card cables, which use thicker (16 AWG) wires.

This is a somewhat standard configuration for 700 W units, with the advantage of having a total of nine SATA power connectors.
