Enermax Platimax 1200W Power Supply review

The Enermax Platimax 1200W power supply is one of the highest quality power supplies we have seen in recent years. It has built upon the excellent heritage of the MaxRevo 1350W, with a slightly tweaked design.

The finish deserves a mention again, because it is sublime and other manufacturers should take note. It is almost impossible to damage under real world conditions, doesn't attract fingerprints and looks fantastic under specific lighting. It may seem like a minor point to make, but we are believers in the small, yet important details. The 5 year warranty for instance, is reassuring.

Internally, it is just as impressive and again formed from the superlative MaxRevo structuring. Soldering and component selection is first class and Enermax use highest grade Rubycon, Matsushita and Nippon Chemi-con capacitors throughout.

Technically it is a solid design and features stable load regulation, great noise suppression and high levels of efficiency. Noise levels are low, and the quiet, yet capable fan ensures that internal cooling proficiency is without question. It also passed our cross loading stress tests with flying colours.

UK availability is still sparse so we don't have any solid pricing yet, however in America it retails for $320. We would expect this to translate to around £250 inc vat in the UK, although we might be out a little on this.

Pros:

  • performance is first class.
  • quality connectors.
  • great efficiency.
  • stable.
  • well built.
  • we love the finish.

Cons:

  • It isn't cheap.

Kitguru says: Another great design from Enermax, with fantastic all round performance.
