Enermax have experienced great success with their Mod82+ series of power supplies over the years. Today we are looking at a model in their latest range, the Triathlor FC. The Traithlor FC 700W is the highest rated supply in the new range, a modular design featuring 80 Plus Bronze Certification and ErP Lot 6 2013 ready compliance.
I have to admit, the ‘Triathlor’ naming threw me for a minute when I was initially offered a sample for review. Someone in the company was obviously watching the London Olympics and wanted to suggestively associate their new power supply range with the multiple-stage sporting event.
As far as power supply naming goes, it’s certainly corny, but the company are clearly focusing on the durability of the design.
- 80 PLUS® Bronze
84 to 88 percent efficiency at 230V and 20 to 100 percent load. 80 PLUS® Bronze certified.
- ErP Lot 6 2013 ready!
Help systems to meet the latest EU eco-design directive ErP Lot 6 2013 (< 0.5W in standby mode*) due to an improved, high-efficient 5V standby (+5Vsb) circuitry.
- DC-to-DC Design
The secondary voltages (+5V and +3.3V) are generated by the primary voltage rails (+12V). Positive effect: Higher efficiency, clean output voltages (low ripple & noise) and a perfect voltage regulation at all loads.
- Full GPU & CPU Power
Massive 12V rails to power high-performance processors and graphics cards. More than 98 percent of the total power of the PSU can be delivered by the key rails only.
- Multi-Rail Design
Safe power supply thanks to two rock stable 12V rails, each with separated over current protection (OCP).
- Zero Load Design
Stable voltage output even at 0W load. In this way, Triathlor supports the energy-saving functions of modern CPU and graphics cards (C6 State/Hybrid Mode) and prevents compatibility issues.
- T.B.Silence inside!
Smooth running 12cm T.B.Silence fan with patented Twister bearing (100,000 hours MTBF) and powerful Batwing blades for very effective and silent cooling.
- Future ready and flexible
All-round modular cable management. 10/12P sockets for possible connector changes of upcoming high-performance CPU and graphics card generations.
Ultra silent and powerful cooling performance due to the advanced and intelligent fuzzy logic fan speed control with virtually inaudible 500 or 900 RPM between 0 and 50 percent load.
Patented air-intake with optimal aero-dynamical design reduces noisy air turbulences.
Leading Enermax protection circuitry of OCP, OVP, UVP DC, OPP, OTP, SCP & SIP.
