Cabling Arrangement

Cabling for the Platimax 1000W is identical to that of the Revolution87+ 1000W and we still feel that the cable selection is only decent. We say decent for a multitude of reasons.


The natively wired PCI-E cables are a tad short and will likely prove to be hard to utilize if you are routing cables behind the motherboard tray and around to a video card. There is also the strong selection of Molex peripheral connectors along with the floppy connector. A few more SATA connectors would be nice along with just including a Molex to FDD connector.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail.



A Look Inside

Popping the bottom off, we see that Enermax has kept it simple. The clean design allows for good air penetration to all the components and good cooling.

A pair of Nippon Chemi-Con caps adorns the primary side of the power supply.

More Nippon Chemi-Con can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.

Enermax uses their own EA142512M-0A fan to provide cooling for the unit.
