Enermax Platimax 1000 Watt 80 Plus Platinum Certified Power Supply Review

PCWizKid has the pleasure to review the Enermax Platimax 1000 Watt PSU.  Clean and efficient layout with a classic finish and black deco frame, ENERMAX’s Platimax considers both aesthetics and technology. Power packed to the core, the industry-leading 89 PLUS Ready Platimax is SLI and CrossFireX ready, and will add real boost to your beast machine. The groundbreaking Dynamic Hybrid Transformer Topology enables high-efficiency, stable output. 100% 6+2P (8P) PCI-E connectors are well ready for new generation DXXI graphic cards, and 12P modular design takes upcoming new CPU and GPU 10P and/or 12P connectors into consideration.

Bulky, cluttered cables stretching within the case is a thing of past thanks to the modular design. 100-240VAC in with automatic adjustment and active PFC get your system ready for global usage. 13.9cm Twister-bearing fan cools the entire power supply unit with low noise level. 100% 105°C Japanese electrolytic capacitors and an array of safeguard means, including CordGuard, HeatGuard, SafeGuard and SpeedGuard, provide maximum durability, stability and protection for a prolonged system lifetime and reduced failure.
