Test Results

 

Our load tests utilize a couple of FAST ATE active load testers and a variety of other equipment such as an oscilloscope, power conditioner, temperature probe and a power consumption meter. You can read more about our standard testing approach here.

 

The tests performed are based around six conceivable setups that are out there and progressively load down the PSU up to the power supply's limits or 1000W, whichever comes first. Since our test equipment's limits are greater than the Enermax MODU87+ 800W, we can test it to the maximum.

The MODU87+ 800W power supply continues to uphold Enermax's reputation of producing quality power supplies. To date, the only power supply that we have tested to show better results is the SilverStone ST1000-P. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about the performance out of this power supply.

 


Final Thoughts

 

I was thoroughly pleased with the MODU87+ 800W power supply from the moment it arrived and through the entire review. There is no doubt that it is a solid hitter for any enthusiast looking for a rock solid power supply. The numbers speak for themselves and there is quality built into every inch of this PSU. I would happily recommend this unit for anyone looking for a high performance power supply.

 

Unfortunately Enermax has this unit priced a little bit high for the performance that it offers. The $250 price tag makes it much less of a bargain compared to the SilverStone ST1000-P which offers more power, marginally better performance and the ability for quad video cards.

 

Efficiency is mildly higher on the Enermax which may offset the initial cost somewhat over the time of the unit. Enermax also gives you a 5 year warranty on the MODU87+, while SilverStone only offers a 3 year warranty.
