Enermax Platimax 850W Semi Modular Power Supply Review

8 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The Enermax Platimax 850W costs around £200 in the UK and we’ve seen it for around $229.99 in the USA. We can see Enermax’s Platimax commands a very premium price point. While the Enermax Platimax 850W power supply is a unit with exceptional voltage regulation, great PFC and very quiet operation I was still slightly disappointed to see it miss 80 Plus Platinum standards at some load scenarios which isn’t ideal given it is rated for 80 Plus Platinum.
  • Pros: Tight voltage regulation on all rails, High efficiency, Consistently high PFC levels, Generally quiet, 5 year warranty, High quality components
  • Cons: Not fully modular, Cables won’t be to everyone’s taste in terms of braiding and colour schemes, Expensive, Loud at 100% load, Falls a tiny bit short of its rated 80 Plus Platinum specification, UK availability is hit and miss

Enermax Platimax 850 W Power Supply Review

Hardware Secrets
16 February 2012
  • Summary: As expected, the Enermax Platimax 850 W proved to be a top-notch power supply, with outstanding efficiency between 87.8% and 91.7%, voltages closer to their nominal values most of the time, very low noise and ripple levels, and a terrific cable configuration. The only real negative point of this power supply is its price, USD 250, which is a huge jump from the price of 850 W power supplies with the 80 Plus Gold certification for only two extra percentage points in...

Enermax Platimax 850 W

7 October 2011
  • Summary: All manufacturers are currently working on high-end Platinum efficiency PSUs, so we expect the competition to get really hard. This is very good for all users out there, since extreme competition means better products at lower prices. In the case of Platimax 850W, Enermax followed the most convenient solution in order to boost efficiency; they used a slightly modified version of the Modu 87+ platform.
  • Pros: High efficiency overall, Six PCIe connectors, One free socket in the modular panel for another two PCIe, Quiet and cool operation, High quality components used, Top external quality and very nice finish
  • Cons: Efficiency below 80 PLUS Platinum at 20% load, even with 230 VAC, Loose voltage regulation on the 3.3V rail

Enermax Platimax 850W power supply review

The Guru of 3D
20 September 2011
  • Summary: So with our PSU reviews we are always the first to state that our review remains somewhat subjective. For a really proper review, we'd need to have capable load testing equipment worth multiple thousands of dollars. But you guys know and understand very well that we here at Guru3D know, understand and recognize quality when we test it, and just like its predecessor, the Platimax is the best we have tested in its class in terms of efficiency.

Expert Review

4 March 2012
  • Summary: Même si la Platimax ne ravit pas la première place à la Seasonic Platinum, cette dernière nous a quand même fait forte impression, avec des excellentes tensions, des consommations qui sont plus que maitrisées et un excellent silence de fonctionnement. Cela est bien sur sans parler de l'excellente qualité de fabrication de ce bloc, au traitement haut de gamme.
  • Pros: Finition, Silence, Tensions, Consommation, Garantie 5 ans
  • Cons: Semi Modulaire ?

Teste da Fonte de Alimentação Enermax Platimax 850 W

Clube do Hardware
21 February 2012
  • Conclusion: O único ponto negativo desta fonte é o seu preço, US$ 250, nos EUA, o que é muito alto em relação ao preço de outras fontes de alimentação com certificação 80 Plus Gold para um ganho de apenas dois pontos percentuais na eficiência. O usuário antenado terá uma melhor relação custo/benefício se comprar uma fonte de alimentação 80 Plus Gold em vez da Platimax 850 W.

Enermax Platimax 850 W

14 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Viel Power, stabil bei jeder Belastung, hervorragende Komponenten auf aktuellstem Technik-Stand, niedriger Verbrauch, leise und mit 5 Jahren Garantie. Da kann man allenfalls noch am Preis einen kleinen Kritikpunkt finden. Aber Qualität kostet eben auch ein wenig. Für Gamer und andere Hochleistungs-Fans ist die Platimax-Reihe jedenfalls eine Top-Wahl. Noch dazu sieht sie einfach schick aus!

Enermax Platimax 850W Netzteil

12 November 2011
  • Summary: Das neue Enermax Platimax 850W richtet sich ganz klar an Enthusiasten und High-End-Anwender mit üppigem Budget. Das neue High-End-Netzteil von Enermax bietet eine exzellente Technik, hochwertige Verarbeitungsqualität, geringe Geräuschentwicklung und, dem Eco-Trend folgend hohen Wirkungsgrad. Die zahlreichen Anschlussmöglichkeiten runden die Power-PSU perfekt ab. Nur der happige Preis dürfte abschreckend wirken. Christoph meint: Ein spitzen Platinum-Netzteil!
  • Pros: top Leistung, einwandfreie Technik, ErP Lot 6, modulares Kabelmanagement, sehr hoher Wirkungsgrad, Verarbeitungsqualität, viel Power (Watt), leiser Lüfter, zahlreiche Anschlüsse, Länge der Kabel
  • Cons: teuer
