Enermax Platimax 850W power supply review -
There is one top fan; a very quiet 13.9cm sized fan. It comes with RPM control and thus guarantees cool performance and silent operation. There's a pretty nice and optimal airflow throughout the PSU. The PSU has an ATX design yet is slightly more lengthy, it'll fit in any chassis though, its dimensions are: 150mm x 86mm x 175mm (W x H x D).
It's a heavy fracker alright, weighing 3 Kilograms! Hey they heavier they are, the more quality you get.
When it comes to wiring, we get a smile on our face, have a look at the supplied connectors, all with good length as well. The peripheral connectors for example like the Molex start at 50 CM / 20" and end at roughly 90 CM. The 8-pin ATX motherboard connector is nice and lengthy as well at 60 CM, great for better cable routing.
The ATX motherboard connector as well reached to 55CM.
Cabling wise you'll get:
- 24P motherboard
- 8P CPU
- 4+4P CPU
- 6+2 PIn PCie PEG
- 6+2 PIn PCie PEG
- 4P Molex
Graphics card wise you get to play with four 6+2 Pin PCie connectors. So that's four 8-pin if needed (two GTX 590 cards for example).
We see sleeved cabling with dark colored connectors. That's a good design. The cables have a proper nice length, though I would like to see the cables sleeved in black and the connectors colored black as well. But that is purely for aesthetic reasons of course.
Last photo, here we can observe power distribution as labeled on the PSU. The +12V rails certainly keep impressing me. You'll get four of them rated at 30 Amps each.
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.
