Solid piece of machinery

Duane W., Newegg
4 January 2014
  • Pros: Nice looking PSU with excellent stats. Mainly picked it up to power my new 780 GTX and it's doing a fine job of that currently. 82 amp on a 12 volt rail so plenty of juice to power those next gen graphics cards. I guess some PSU's are fully modular? This one is mostly, sans the obvious mobo connections. I guess still would have been nice to be 100% if that even exists. included an abundance of cables. I like the fit and finish and it's quiet.
  • Cons: Mobo cables a not modular. Minor minor issue.

Enermax 1000W

Regina M., Newegg
2 March 2013
  • Summary: The system its powering :) Tyan Thunder K8WE Dual AMD Opteron (Italy 2.4Ghz) Two Zalman 92MM CPU Fans Lian Li Full Tower 16gb ECC (4x4GB Infineon) 4 Raptors in JBOD ATI FireGL V5000 Also Running 7 External's 24/7 Enermax Platimax 1000W
  • Pros: Ok, let me just say this is the best power supply we've bought in a long time. We had to get a new one because our 3 year old PC Power and Cooling 850W had died on us, So we stumbled upon this and for the last 2 months its worked great. Its very quiet, doesn't have blinding LED's (If that bothers you), and it is very modular not fully though. Cable management is very simple dont need a cable, just take it out.
  • Cons: Nope,Zilch. Wish we knew about it sooner. Wont make me money :(

Good Unit

Kevin C., Newegg
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Great overall unit. Will definitely buy enermax again. Loyal customer for life.
  • Pros: Purchased with my Enermax Fulmo case. Love both items and work well together as one should hope. Been using it for the past couple months and have had no problems with either. A commentor stated that the powercables are stiff which I found not be a problem if you are careful routing the cables. I have no idea how somebody can snap powercables without being rough with the components.
  • Cons: Box i received was a little crushed but all contents were fine. So I didnt really mind.

Gimped by cheap cables.

Roy H., Newegg
22 April 2012
  • Summary: A few years back the Ultra company sold PSUs with flat and highly flexible cabling. You would have thought this would be an industry standard by now but instead power supply makers seem to be going in the opposite direction as this Enermax unit clearly illustrates.
  • Pros: Quiet, efficient, plenty of power for your system.
  • Cons: Cables are heavy duty but are made from low cost wire so they are not flexible enough. This wouldn't be a problem in a very large case but in a mid tower the cables were so stiff that they cracked the SATA power connectors on my SSDs while trying to rout them. At this price point you would think high strand count wiring would be used to add flexibility especially since the heavy wire guage already added to the overall thickness of the bundled cables. Very disappointing.

You get what ya pay for!!

Cory M., Newegg
17 March 2012
  • Summary: the moral of the story is for all those people who think it is a good idea to cheap out on your power supply, it is just penny wise and pound foolish. you will greatly increase your chance of hardware failure should it choose to go up in a ball of flames and take every component you purchased alongside it. If you are having doubts about purchasing such an expensive power supply like I did. my advice is to just do it.
  • Pros: *Beautiful, but simple aesthetics *plenty of lengthy cables to choose through *Partially modular I originally bought this power supply to swap out a cheapo unit I purchased for my gaming rig. I bought the original power supply for about 80 dollars and It claimed to be 1000 watts. I had to get rid of it because of all the stories I have heard about them exploding like a Chinese firecracker, plus I needed to add an additional graphics card, so I did not want to risk any...
  • Cons: Not fully modular, but no biggie Doesn't cook, clean, and go to work for me

  • Excerpt: Блок оставил двоякое впечатление. Он тихий, холодный. Вентилятор потрескивает, но слышно только если приложить ухо - видимо такая особенность, а так он вобще бесшумный. Небольшой писк тоже имеется, но опять же, только если приложить ухо, а так его не слышно. Надпись Platimax написана очень криво - улетает в правый верх, хотя должна быть идеально ровной - это большой косяк для тех у кого корпус с окном и запчасти моддинговые и в частности для меня.
  • Pros: Холодный, тихий, красивый, 5 лет гарантии, спокойно выдерживает очень большие нагрузки.
  • Cons: Ценник жесть конечно, качество сборки огорчило.

  • Excerpt: Пользуюсь уже около полугода, за время пользования косяков с этим блоком питания не было. В целом, я очень доволен покупкой.
  • Pros: Довольно мощный блок питания. Подойдет, как для домашнего ПК, так и для не совсем мощного сервера. Множество дополнительных разъемов. Защита от перенапряжения и коротких замыканий. Умеренный шум, даже после продолжительной работы ПК. Умеренная стоимость за качественный БП.
  • Cons: За время пользования недостатков не выявил.
