Cabling Arrangement

There are a ton of cables and connectors fed by the MaxRevo 1350W. It all boils down to the Main, two EPS12V, one ATX 4-pin, eight 8-pin PCI-E, 14 SATA and 10 Molex connectors; plus one more for the floppy. Interestingly enough, there will still be one of the red 12-pin connectors unused on the front of the power supply, so you have some room to load balance things if needed and can always fill it with an additional cable from Enermax.

Enermax does a great job with the rail distribution for the MaxRevo 1350W. 12V1 and 12V2 take care of powering the motherboard with the Main connector and EPS12V connector. The rest of the rails are split between either two of the 12-pin connectors for modular cables or one of the 12-pin connectors plus three peripheral connectors. One thing that many manufacturers forget to include with a multi-rail power supply is the actual rail distribution. Enermax does an excellent job of laying this out in the user manual.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening up the power supply, we find that Enermax has plenty of cooling going on inside here to help with the large amounts of heat that are sure to be generated when under full load.

Something we don't normally see on the primary side is a tri of capacitors. All three of these are Matsushita (or Panasonic if you prefer) and rated for 105C.

Moving over to the secondary capacitors, we find a mix of Rubycon and Nippon Chemi-Con. 100% Japanese construction from start to finish.

Cooling off the MaxRevo 1350W power supply is the 140mm twister bearing fan. It is manufactured by Power Cooler and the model is PD1402512H.
