So then, here we have the packaging so you know what to look for in the stores. The PSU inside is packaged nicely and protected in a carton. The PSU is delivered with all the basics like power cable, modular cables, manual, velcro straps, screws and a little pouch to store your modular cables in. Also included was a free fan. We'll cover that one later though.
After unpacking, not a dent, scratch or smudge was on the unit. Rough matte finish, nice grey/yellow/black theme. What's not to like really? The PSU is ready for nearly all upcoming CPU & GPU generations by 12P sockets for possible connector changes and massive overkill 12V rails.
The PSU complies to EPS12V PSU design guides for compatibility & by ZERO LOAD Design for Hybrid Mode functions & C6 state functions.
At the front side we spot a nice honeycomb air vent; it allows for optimal airflow running through the PSU, cooling down its components and keeping them nicely efficient. Also, obviously we spot the power connector and on/off switch.
Enermax Liqtech 120X and 240 review We test and review the all new Enermax Liqtech 120X and 240 Liquid coolers. Can it keep up with similar Asetek and compeeting products? Let's find out!...
Enermax Fulmo GT review We review and test the Fulmo GT. Enermax has been going very strong with their power supply and fans. For a while now they also offer PC cases, and more recently they released what seems to be the biggest chassis I've ever laid my hands on. This chassis series has HPTX support for the bigger than biggest motherboards and some pretty cool features as well.
Enermax KW001 Briskie Keyboard mouse combo review Keyboard kits come in all sizes, shapes and forms .. and that's next to a gazillion of manufacturers that offers them. Surprisingly enough a few weeks ago Enermax, the guys behind the best power supplies and the brightest fans also launched a keyboard/mouse combo. Briskie is all about value and as such for 25 USD/EUR you get a mouse and what we think is a very decent wireless RF keyboard.
Enermax Platimax 850W power supply review Enermax always is able surprise us, they now have released the Platimax power supplies, that means a platinum certification and yeah .. that boils down to a 94% efficient product. Very few products get this certification. Today we'll grab a couple of older older supplies and see if what they claim is true, can we really save on energy. We fire off three PSU's at a P55 / Core i7 870 based system setup with a GeForce GTX 590. We then monitor power consumption in idle, CPU productivity (stress) mode and then lock into a gaming session.
