Enermax replaces their MODU82+ series with ... Triathlor?

If you ignore the interesting choice of names, the Enermax Triathlor 650W looks good on paper with mostly modular cabling, an 80 Plus Bronze rating and a $120 price tag.  With four 6+2 PCIe power connectors and a pair of 30A 12V rails it will handle SLI/Crossfire of mid range cards but will probably have trouble with multiple flagship GPUs.  Hardware Secrets like the amount of available cabling and the quiet operation of the PSU but unfortunately they were not terribly impressed with the voltage regulation when it was run at full power.  Taking that into account, as well as the fact that similar PSUs tend to cost less than $100, they have difficulty recommending this PSU in the current market.

"The Triathlor FC is the latest power supply series with the 80 Plus Bronze certification from Enermax, coming to replace the MODU82+ series. So far, three models were released: 550 W, 650 W, and 700 W. Let's see if the 650 W model is a good buy."

They already did. These have been available on Euro for quite a while.
