Enermax launches Triathlor FC, the successor of the popular Modu82+ PSU series. Modu82+ has been one of the most popular power supply series ever. End users from all around the globe appreciate this Enermax PSU because it focuses on the pure essentials of power supply: durable components, silent operation and stable performance. No wonder that Enermax could sell this series continuously from 2008 until today. But due to the technological progress, time has come to say goodbye to the Modu82+, and welcome the new long runner from Enermax, the Triathlor FC.
Enermax engineers entirely dismissed short-term market trends and concentrated on the development of a PSU design that will run over long years. The Triathlor FC is not a blinky poser. On the contrary, it comes in a classic black, downright ordinary housing. But don't judge this PSU by its cover: The Triathlor FC is equipped with latest Enermax technology. The manufacturer has spared neither costs nor effort to develop a product that meets the highest standards in terms of performance capability and quality.
Rock Stable at All Loads
Unusual for a power supply of this price range is the integration of an expensive DC-to-DC technology. It effectively reduces the energy losses and significantly improves the voltage regulation. By generating the secondary voltages (3.3V and 5V) through the 12V rail, Enermax further saves space on the PCB and achieves a better air circulation inside the PSU. Interesting side effect of the DC-to-DC design: The power supply is able to keep stable voltages even at 0W load. This so-called "Zero Load Design" will solve compatibility issues with the energy-saving functions of modern processors and graphics cards like for example the C6 state.
Silent Cooling by Enermax
Thanks to innovative technologies like the patented Twister fan bearing, Enermax has built up an excellent reputation in cooling segment. Products like case fans or CPU coolers have become the second pillar of the manufacturer's business operation. For some time now, Enermax applies the successful cooling solutions also in its power supplies. In this regard, the new Triathlor FC makes no exception: The manufacturer integrated a 12cm T.B.Silence fan that is actually one of the best-selling case fans in Europe. With its patented Twister bearing, the own-brand product guarantees a smooth and frictionless operation with minimum 100,000 hours life time. The smart RPM control of the Triathlor FC regulates the speed depending on the inside temperature and the particular PSU load. With virtually inaudible 500 or 900 RPM (depending on the model) right up to 50 per cent load, the new Enermax power supply will delight all silent PC enthusiasts.
FC = Flexible Cable Management
Triathlor FC provides a well thought out cable management system with a lot of connectors to power all possible hardware configurations. Flat, decent black modular cables simplify the cable routing inside the case. Enermax provides at least three 6+2P (8P) PCI-E connectors per model and relies on a Multi-Rail design with two massive 12V rails that generate up to 99 per cent of the total PSU power. In this way, Triathlor FC can even support strong multi-GPU gaming systems.
