Enermax doesn't feel the need to brag about the efficiency of the new Revolution87

The Enermax Revolution87+ 1000W PSU can distribute almost its entire peak capability across its four 12V rails at a maximum of 83A.  After their testing [H]ard|OCP proclaimed that this is another step forward in PSU design for Enermax, retaining solid construction and power generation needed by users as well as increasing efficiency and lowering noise.  Perhaps the most laudable thing Enermax did with this unit was to market it as 80+ Gold even though it actually meets Platinum standards.  That is the opposite of most PSU marketers whose PSUs tend to barely meet the claimed efficiency or to not meet it at all when tested by reviewers.

"Enermax is and has been a favorite brand with HardOCP for many years now. Today it is showing off its new Revolution 87+ series suggesting 87% efficiency or better at all times. Coming in at a full kilowatt of supplied power, designed with ZERO LOAD sleep states in mind, and 24-7 at 50C performance, this should be one tough PSU."

Enermax - They've gone to platinum!

Subject: Cases and Cooling | September 7, 2011 - 06:49 PM |
Tagged: enermax, 80 platinum, platimax 1200W, kilowatt, modular psu

Enermax has really taken the cake with their new Platimax 1200W PSU, so named because it carries an 80+ Platinum rating.  That high of an efficiency rating is very rare and is usually seen on PSUs in the 500W range but Enermax has more than doubled it.  You get over a half dozen 8pin PCIe power plugs as well as a plethora of SATA and other power plugs.  If you need this much power for your rig it is worth investigating this level of power efficiency as it will save you money eventually.  [H]ard|OCP gave this PSU a Silver Award, missing out on Gold due to pricing only.

"Enermax is one of our long time favorite brands when it comes to PSUs. Enermax has proved over and over again that it is one of the world's premier PSU builders. Today it steps into a realm that is tough to compete in and in fact has not ever been seen by any other PSU builders as of yet. 1200 watts that is 80 Plus Platinum certified."

1300 watts of golden power from Enermax

Subject: Cases and Cooling | July 22, 2011 - 03:07 PM |
Tagged: enermax, kilowatt, 80+ gold, MAXREVO 1350W, PSU

The Enermax MAXREVO 1350W PSU missed getting an 80+ Platinum rating by 1%, which puts it in rare company, kilowatt class or not.  Not only that, but in RealWorldLabs' testing it produced under 40dB under load which is impressively quiet for a 1350W PSU.  With 112 amps available to the six 12V rails and eight PCI-Express connectors ensure support for whatever multi-GPU monster you envision building.  All of that quality and those features do mean a higher price, $300 is the entry fee for this PSU.  It is worth it if you need it.

"The latest MAXREVO 1350W 80Plus Gold certified power supply unit by Enermax is not only a worthy successor to their already excellent Revolution85+ series but also one of the two most powerful all-modular units in the market with support for future power connectors, right next to its 1500W brother."

Enermax extends their low cost PSU line with the LEPA 850W

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 20, 2011 - 05:27 PM |
Tagged: lepa, enermax, PSU, 850W

The LEPA B850 is a little odd when you look at it behind the scenes, as it is a low cost Enermax PSU but it is made by Sirfa.  That kind of inbreeding is not exceptional when it comes to PSUs but is sometimes worth noting.  It sports an 80+ Bronze rating and its four 12V rails are split between a pair of 20A and a pair of 30A rails which makes it worth your while to determine which plugs are feeding your GPU.  It passed the [H]ard|OCP torture tests which qualify it as a decent PSU but [H] had several caveats about purchasing this PSU.  First is the warranty which might be between 3 and 5 years or maybe 2 years, it is hard to tell from the documentation.  Second was the value as Enermax already has the NAXN line which is comparable to LEPA and that competitors like XFX and Corsair offer products that are at least as good and cost less than this LEPA unit.

"For those of you that do not know, LEPA is what we would call Enermax' low cost "house brand" of PSU. No, it specifications are not up to those of most worthy Enermax units, but then again, neither is the price. How does LEPA do with its second unit reviewed here at HardOCP?"

Enermax Shows Off Seven New CPU Coolers

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 4, 2011 - 07:54 PM |
Tagged: hsf, enermax, cpu cooler, computex

Enermax, a company most well known for its computer power supplies, expanded on it’s computer case fan lineup by slapping aluminum fins and heat pipes to some of their LED fans to create a new line of CPU coolers. The company will unveil seven new heat sinks, each incorporating one of Enermax's fans.

Bit-Tech reports that both tower and down-flow (like those of Intel) cooler types are on offer, and will sport what Enermax states are the industry’s first 10mm heat pipes.

It will be interesting to see just how much these behemoths weigh, as the current air coolers are already pushing the “just how much stress can my motherboard take” meter for me. You can check out more photos of the new coolers as well as get more information over at bit-tech.

We need more power! 1350W of pure Enermax coming up.

Subject: Cases and Cooling | May 26, 2011 - 01:43 PM |
Tagged: kilowatt, enermax, Enermax MaxRevo, 1350W

It is rather impressive that Enermax has managed to make a 1350W PSU that does not require a 240V plug, thanks to their FMQ transformer and use of copper interconnects instead of wires which Enermax refers to as a Copper-Bridge Array.  They've gone a different way from previous models and their competitors, splitting the 12V rail into six 30A rails which will still ensure multiple GPU systems can perform stably. Drop by [H]ard|OCP to see if this PSU can live up to its advertised power levels.

"Enermax has long been a favorite of ours when it comes to power supplies for heavy hitter enthusiasts pushing huge system wattage loads. Today it is launching a new flagship product that comes to up touting a huge 1350 watt usage rating. Does Enermax continue its top shelf legacy?"

The new low cost lineup from Enermax, is the NAXN series deserving of the name?

Subject: Cases and Cooling | May 9, 2011 - 12:14 PM |
Tagged: enermax, PSU, naxn, sirfa

Enermax has a solid reputation in the industry, stemming from their use of quality parts on the interior which do raise the cost of the units somewhat but raise the quality significantly.  Their new NAXN 750W goes a different way, choosing components that have been on the market a while and therefore cost a little less.  [H]ard|OCP's testing was influenced by their recent review of the Enermax Lepa 750W PSU which had decent performance but was priced too high when compared to competitors offerings.  The NAXN sacrifices a bit of energy efficiency when compared to the Lepa and higher priced PSUs but sacrifices nothing on quality.

"Enermax has been a long time favorite of ours when it comes to PSUs. High quality builds that put out great power. Today we have its new NAXN 750 watt model; the first new model we have seen since Ecomaster took over the business. We are still not sure where this fits into the Enermax / Ecomaster product stack."
