Final Thoughts


After the tests have been run, the Mushkin Enhanced 650-watt unit does a very nice job of handling the rigors of a modern computer system. While not the baddest kid on the block, the test system used has been known to kill a few power supplies in its past and is a fair reflection of what many folks are using today. The Mushkin unit did a very good job of keeping everything well powered and stable.


For those who are into looks as well as performance, this model is sure to please. The highly reflective surface of the entire unit will make for good eye candy inside those cases with the monster window in the side. There were no mars to be seen in the finish and it was very smooth over the entire surface area.


If you are the type of user that has a fan in every possible location, you will want to make sure to have a supply of Molex splitters on hand. While 6 Molex isn't terrible, eight or more would have been more beneficial for the enthusiast.


As far as price is concerned, the Mushkin unit is near the top of the heap. Of course, the power levels were absurdly stable and it is capable of natively handling dual PCI-E outputs, so you get what you pay for. You can expect to shell out in the neighborhood of $220US for this beast.


Bottom line... If you've been looking for a power supply that is high in both performance and looks, then look no further than the Mushkin Enhanced 650w. With ultra-stable power output along all rails and a classy look that appeals to just about everyone, it has what you are looking for. It isn't cheap, but the power supply isn't an area to skimp in anyway.
