So then, Enermax recently launched this high performance 80PLUS Gold certified PSU series which is currently available in Europe and North America.
Enermax introduced 1.2kW, 1.35kW and 1.5kW units, so if you need to go even more crazy, be my guest.
A new and rather noteworthy innovation is all new Copper-Bridge Array transmission technology which replaces conventional wires to provide up to 3% better power regulation. Enermax says that this feature enables its PSUs to deliver cleaner DC power and improves the system's stability.
All three models come with no less than six 12V rails rated at an astounding 30A each, combined power output varies a little according to the model. So the 1.2kW unit has a maximum 12V amperage of 100A, the 1.35kW unit is rated at 112A, while the top of the line 1500W PSU can provide up to 125A.
FMQ Design Fully utilize transformers quad magnetic quadrants energy to provide maximum switching efficiency and outstanding stability.
88PLUS ready! Worlds leading full modular cables PSU series with 88-94% efficiency @ 20-100% load. Compliant with 80 PLUS® GOLD standard (1200/1350W only).

SERVER ready! SSI PSDG support for latest Intel® Core Extreme/i7, Xeon and AMD® Opteron and SLI® or CrossFireX and downward compatible with EPS12V v2.92, v2.8.
CordGuard Fixing the AC cord tightly to avoid accidental shutdowns of your PC.
HeatGuard Keeping PSU fan running for 30-60 seconds after shut down to dissipate the remaining system heat and prolong system lifetime.
SafeGuard Industry-leading octuple protection circuitry of OCP, OVP, AC UVP, DC UVP, OPP, OTP, SCP & SIP.
SpeedGuard The worlds leading patented fan control starting with unmatched 900RPM to a maximum of 2000RPM for optimal cooling and minimum noise.
Twister fan inside! 13.9cm Twister-bearing fan with low noise and long lifetime. (100,000 hours MTBF, Patented)
100% 105C Japanese electrolytic capacitors Highest components standards for maximum durability and stability.
As mentioned in our introduction the Enermax MaxRevo series comes with a modular cable design and all the models come bundled together with four 6+2pins PCI-E cables. SATA wise you can hook up 14 SATA drives and then another 10 MOLEX connectors will deal with the rest ;).
Inside the PSU you'll spot 105°C Japanese electrolytic capacitors to ensure maximum stability, a 13.9cm Twister-bearing fan (900 to 2000 RPM working speed), as well as the CordGuard and HeatGuard technologies. The heatguard is designed to keep the fan running for a little while after the system was shut off in order to allow for the PSU to cool down properly.
As you can expect pricing will be high, this is top notch enthusiast gear, the two 80PLUS Gold certified MaxRevo units can be found for 290 and 310 respectively in Dutch pricewatch engines. The 1200Watt Unit I have not seen a price for.
I stated it already, a crazy six 12 Volt rails, have a peek at power distribution in the chart below.
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.
Enermax MaxRevo 1350W PSU review The MaxRevo is 1350 Watt .. with peak power available up-to 1620 Watt, yummie. Interestingly enough this is a nice small sized power supply, you'll hardly hear it, has plenty of modular options, wwell read is all modular and is 80 PLUS Gold certified. That makes the modular cables based MaxRevo PSU series 88-94% efficient @ 20-100% load.
