Final Thoughts


When everything is said and done, Enermax has done a fine job of living up to a reputation of quality. With multiple system compatibilities, dual PCI-E couplings and enough Molex connectors to handle most needs, we have a very solid power supply. Add to this things like EMI shielding to eliminate noise from the outlet power source and braided cabling and we have something that looks even better.


With regards to power output, I never noted any stability issues as is common when you begin to strain the capacity of a power supply. With systems running modern chipsets and PCI-E graphics, 480w has pretty much become the de facto minimum rating in a PSU so this unit will fall squarely into the group enjoyed by enthusiasts.


As far as price is concerned, this particular model can be found online for as low as $80 USD on shops such as Monarch. At this price, it falls toward the bottom of the scale of 500-550 watt power supplies from Tier I manufacturers. This makes it look to be an even better value than we've already been seeing. After all, features and performance are great but a reasonable price on top of that can have one of the biggest impacts on a buyer.


Bottom line... If you've been looking into a new power supply and want enough juice to handle the load of your dream system, then you have a few good choices available to you. If you're looking for killer features and a price that won't break the bank, your list of choices becomes a lot narrower. Enter Enermax once again with a very solid PSU at a very workable price. With features and power to spare, you won't be sorry.
