Model / DC Output
With 625 Watts the PSU actually falls into the high-end category though Enermax markets it as a mid-range series. Although not exactly Kilowatt material, it most certainly is capable enough of running a dedicated high-end PC. Especially when you realize that Enermax always makes sure your power supply can have a higher peak wattage, this 625 Watt model for example can take 690 Watts. Enermax products never fail to disappoint in that aspect.
Included in the package you'll receive:
Modu82+ II power supply
Here's a handy overview of included modular cables based on model number.
If memory serves me right the PSU is not actually SLI certified, but regardless of that obviously it can easily take any SLI/Crossfire ready gear. We'll actually use 5 (!) GPUs today and they all work fine.
On the 625W model you'll receive no less than four 6/8-pin (DXX) headers for graphics cards and that is more than sufficient for any 2-way multi-GPU setup, especially with 25 Amps available on each of the three 12v rails.
But let's go to the next page and talk about efficiency for a bit...
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.
