Cabling Arrangement

Enermax always does a great job of cable selection and connector availability and the Platimax 600W is no different. The only natively wired cables are the Main and ATX4+4 cables. The pair of PCI-E cables break out to two PCI-E 6+2 pin connectors each. Peripheral connectors are handled via four cables that give eight SATA, eight Molex, and one FDD connector.

As was noted at the start, Enermax always uses rail distribution that strays from the norm. This layout ensures that there is some form of rail distribution anytime something is plugged into one of the CPU/GPU connectors.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening up the unit, we find a very well laid out power supply with lots of cooling wherever it is necessary.

There is a single Panasonic capacitor on the primary side.

Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors are found on the secondary side as well.

Enermax uses its own EA142512W-OAB twister bearing fan to cool the Platimax 600W power supply.
