As promised earlier this month in or review of the Enermax Revolution87+, we have another review for Enermax this month.
This time around it is for their Platimax series of power supplies which offer superb performance at Platinum rated efficiency. We took an early look at the Platimax series late last year when the only PSU we could get our hands on at the time was the 600W model.
We wanted to follow up and see if their high wattage offerings were of the same quality as we were sure our readers would be interested in Platinum efficiency in an enthusiasts quality power supply.
Keep reading as we take an in-depth look at the Platimax 1000W from Enermax.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
One of the big changes that we see between the 600W and 1000W models is that Enermax now uses a single 12V rail instead of three 25A rails. This allows for up to 83A of power on the 12V rail or 996W. Unfortunately the 3.3V and 5V rails didn't get an increase at all and are only rated for 20A each with a combined total output of 100W. We feel this is a little low for a 1000W unit.
The Enermax Platimax 1000W comes packed with everything we check for. It has both native and modular cabling; all of which is fully sleeved. All your protections are present including over-temperature protection. As you would expect, the unit is rated for 100% continuous output at 50C. Enermax gives you all that you could ask for and more when it comes to features.
Enermax has an MSRP of $299 on the Platimax 1000W unit. We were able to find it cheapest at Newegg for $289.99 at the time of writing this article.
Even at that price, it is the most expensive 1000W Platinum power supply on the market by $30. Enermax backs the Platimax with their customary five year warranty.
