True enthusiasts know that their selection of power supplies is limited. High output units that deliver well over 1000W of power just don't have the demand that the 700-850W units do and as such, we don't see a new, full blown enthusiast grade power supply hit the market that often. Today, however, is one of those glorious days where we get to put something to the test for those that demand large amounts of high quality power and won't settle for anything less. We've got Enermax's new MaxRevo 1350W power supply on the bench and it promises to be just what any enthusiast needs.
Enermax is known for their quality, enthusiast grade, high output power supplies and the new MaxRevo 1350W is one of the highest capacity power supplies they've ever produced. Those interested in something bigger will be happy to know that Enermax also released a 1500W MaxRevo unit alongside the 1350W model. Even at full load, the MaxRevo claims to maintain 80Plus Gold efficiency, next generation connectors, 100% Japanese capacitor construction and much more. Let's take a look at some specifications and get started with the MaxRevo 1350W.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Right off the bat you are sure to notice the six 30A 12V rails that are capable of providing almost 100% of the power supply's rated output. With the way that Enermax has the rails split up, you'll find it hard to overload the rails, but it still could be possible. The 3.3V and 5V rails are each rated for 25A, however, have a combined maximum load of 140W. This is a tad bit low for such a high end power supply and it would be nice to see it a little closer to 180W.
Just like you would expect, the MaxRevo 1350 has all the features that we check for and a few more. All the protections are present, along with Surge & Inrush Protection (SIP). The unit is 100% modular with sleeved cables and dual EPS12V support. The MaxRevo 1350W power supply is also 80Plus Gold certified and capable of 100% load at 50C.
Enermax has excellent market penetration, so tracking down the MaxRevo 1350W isn't too much trouble, although some of the standard places just don't have it in stock. When you do find the power supply in stock, it is going to set you back $299.99. Enermax proudly backs the MaxRevo 1350W with their typical five year warranty.
