Measure your distances first!

Kevin B., Newegg
18 February 2015
  • Summary: Would probably be fine for a mid-tower case or smaller.
  • Pros: Quiet, efficient, easy to install
  • Cons: This PS comes with some of the cords already installed, i.e., it is only Partially modular. In my case, the ATX 12v PS cord was too short to reach the socket, unless I ran it across the top of the MB, and thru the CPU heatsink. There is no way you can hide this cord. The ATX power connector just ...

good power supply

Brent O., Newegg
27 March 2014
  • Summary: This is one of those things you have to upgrade over time as we add more and more demand to out power supply - video is a big one; all of the USB we now use. I started with a 230 watt for a 486DX33 in 1994, and have had to upgrade with each generation of computing.
  • Pros: all the cable options you could ever need cable lock - keeps power cable from wriggling out from moving CPU quiet very efficient great bang for the buck
  • Cons: all power supplies keep getting more expensive did not have an exact fit as all others have in the past

It's a power supply, it works.

Craig V., Newegg
18 December 2013
  • Summary: Yeah, it's pricy... I'm sick of having junk power supplies. This one seems nice. Spend the money.
  • Pros: Feels nice to the touch. Appears well-made. Plugged it in, it worked. Supposedly, it's highly efficient. It's quiet. Zero issues, so far so good
  • Cons: None so far. Kind of pricy, but then again I was going for quality and durability.

RMA

  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: Had to go through the trouble of building my computer, find out it didn't work then diagnose it. Stick with Corsair or a winning company.

Worth Every Penny

Joseph W., Newegg
3 September 2013
  • Pros: Quality, long lasting components. Goes the extra mile by proving separate +12v lines. Most power supplies at this level don't. It means a little extra work for the system builder, because he needs to distribute the components appropriately. However, it provides the extra safety by isolating compo...

Everything you need and more

Nicholas L., Newegg
1 August 2013
  • Summary: Basically, this product is everything you need and more out of a power supply unit. Honestly, this is the computer part that I was most excited about when I ordered my last computer and it didn't disappoint.
  • Pros: - High quality. - Great modular design. - 850W should be more than enough for most computers. - Energy efficient. - Comes with more cables than you probably need. - Comes with a carrying bag for your extra cables. - Comes with great Velcro straps. - Isn't too noisy. - Looks great.
  • Cons: The price. It's a little expensive, but worth it.

Top of the Line

Alfonso R., Newegg
14 April 2013
  • Summary: They say the 600W and 750W version are disco'd but they sell them elsewhere still. Not sure why the Egg pulled them.
  • Pros: This 850W version of the Platimax is a baller. I own the 600W version and it's tip top. This 850W will run 3 high end GTX in triple with no problems. If you're running dual cards then you won't need to go any higher than this.
  • Cons: Price but you get what you pay for when it comes to Platimax. Upholds the Enermax reputation.

Great PSU!

Anonymous, Newegg
20 July 2012
  • Summary: Very well built and designed PSU, energy efficient and very worth the money.
  • Pros: - Great Modular Design - High Quality Components
  • Cons: +2 extra wires on the PCI-E Also, could have made standard lines modular, as for example I didn't need the secondary CPU power line.

High quality

Russell K., Newegg
25 May 2012
  • Summary: I've been using Enermax since the "Liberty" series (prior to that, I had some bad luck). The first one I bought just recently failed after 6 years of continuous use. It was easily fixed by replacing a poorly-placed capacitor in the standby power rail.
  • Pros: Very high quality unit, though I expected that for the price. I really like Enermax's modular cables, even though they keep changing the PSU-side connector.
  • Cons: Chassis is about 1.5" longer than your typical ATX PSU. Most ATX compliant cases can accommodate this, but some goofy cases won't. My full tower case has the PSU mounted towards the center, so cable management is a bit more snug than normal.
