Following up on the heels of our review of the Enermax NAXN ADV 650W power supply, we have another low wattage unit from Enermax for your viewing pleasure. Just as we discussed with the NAXN ADV, power requirements for systems are currently shrinking and as such, you're going to see an influx of lower wattage units to accompany this. Some of these will be entirely new designs and yet others will be product refreshes just as we have today.
The power supply we have today is the Enermax Triathlor FC 650W. The power supply features the same 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency and 650W total output that we saw from the NAXN ADV 650W, but that is just about where the similarities end. The Triathlor FC series is the replacement for the well-received Enermax Modu82+ series. For quite some time, the Modu82+ series stood as a PSU lineup that offered a bit more than an entry level power supply, but less than an enthusiast level unit. The price point was right in the middle too so that you were truly getting what you paid for.
Let's see what the new Triathlor FC 650W is made of and see just how well it fills that void.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Triathlor 650W utilizes dual 12V rails to deliver most of the power from this unit. Each 12V rail is rated for 30A each with a combined maximum output of 54A or 648W. The 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for a rather beefy 24A each with a maximum combined output of 140A. The 5VSB rail is rated for 2.5A or 12.5W. Maximum combined output of the unit is 650W.
As you would expect from Enermax, the Triathlor FC 650W is full of features. All protections are present, including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP. The power supply is 80 PLUS Bronze certified for efficiency. All native cables are fully sleeved and all modular cables are of the flat ribbon type. Enermax does not rate the Triathlor FC 650W for 100% continuous output at 50C, but does so at 40C.
Enermax lists the Triathlor FC 650W with an MSRP of $119.99. The unit seems to have limited stock at the moment, but Antares Pro does list the unit as being available for $98.99 with $15.00 shipping. This still makes the Triathlor FC one of the most expensive 80 PLUS Bronze units available on the market and makes it comparable with several other 650W enthusiast units rated for Gold or higher. Enermax backs the Triathlor FC 650W by a three year warranty.
