Inside the Box

Here is the unit just as it arrived with the top open. There is no padding to protect the unit. It is simply protected by the cables that surround it on three sides and cardboard on the other three sides.

As has become the norm, Enermax has located the I/O specification label for the Platimax on the top of the power supply.

Enermax uses the same design as the MaxRevo and Revolution87+ for the Platimax.

Lettering is reversed on the other side so that it is displayed properly no matter where you install it in a case.

The modular connections on the front are well labeled.

The back houses the standard honeycomb mesh grill. It is open almost as much as can be with the exception of the added Enermax logo.

The bottom houses the 139mm twister bearing fan that cools the unit.
