Enermax MaxREVO 1500-watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review

Inside the Box




Once we open things up, we find several boxes that slide out of the outer packaging. The power supply resides in the middle box while the modular cables and accessories are in the outer two boxes.




Taking the power supply out of the box, we find that the I/O specification label is on the top of the unit. There are some rub marks on the finish of the unit, but we aren't able to explain why. The power supply rests in the box without bubble wrap or a plastic/felt bag but at the same time, there aren't any marks on the cardboard to indicate that it had been rubbed smooth.




Moving to the side, we find the same matte finish and embellished case that we saw with the 1350W model.




The other side is inverted and has a few more rub marks on it that we again couldn't explain.




Here we see all of the modular connections on the front of the unit. While it is impossible to utilize cables in an incorrect spot, it would be nice to have them labeled, especially with which rail they connect to.




Towards the back we find the standard honeycomb mesh venting with AC input and on/off rocker switch. Also notice the two spots below the AC input. This is for CordGuard, which secures the power cord and prevents it from accidentally being unplugged.




Rounding out the exterior photos of the unit is a shot at the bottom. The 140mm fan provides active cooling for the unit and thanks to the HeatGuard feature will remain spinning 30-60 seconds after powering the unit off to reduce residual heat.




Included with the MaxREVO 1500W power supply are a slew of modular cables.




Also included with the power supply is the user manual, rail distribution card, mounting screws, case badge, CordGuard and AC input cord.
