Enermax NAXN ADV 650-Watt 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Review
Enermax's latest entry level power supply provides a decent power for those just starting out, but may not provide the best value if you're on a tight budget.

Cabling Arrangement

The Enermax NAXN ADV 650W has a good selection of cables and connectors that should make sure you get the full use of the unit. The quad PCI-E connectors ensure that even entry level multi-GPU configurations are taken care of. Seven SATA connectors should take care of most storage solutions and for those in need, they can utilize the three Molex or single FDD connectors.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

 

 

A Look Inside

As you can see from the unit, it could have been placed in a much smaller enclosure. Doing this would have required a smaller fan and increased noise from the unit and is probably a tradeoff that Enermax didn't want to make.

As expected, a single Nippon Chemi-Con capacitor sits on the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side doesn't fare so well. Pictured above is a Chinese capacitor from Aishi.

Pictured here are more Chinese capacitors from CapXon. Things could be worse as far as selection is concerned, but not by much.

Rounding out images of the inside is a shot of the Yate Loon D12BH-12 fan that keeps everything nice and cool.
