Enermax MAXREVO 1350W Power Supply
Article Publish Date:
With high wattage Platinum power supply units just around the corner the time has come to really think about purchasing an Sunmoon SM-8800 load tester since not only i could max out pretty much any PSU that comes our way but also and mainly because it takes a lot less time to review an PSU than with a normal system. So if that goes through (although ordering and shipping should take a month or two) todays review might just be the amongst the last ones we do "manually" with the help of one of our test rigs and as the title clearly states today we will be taking a look at the latest and greatest unit by Enermax the MAXREVO 1350W.
Enermax Technology Corporation was founded in Taiwan in 1990 and today is one of the leading manufacturers of PC components (power supplies, PC cases, cooling fans, keyboards, HDD enclosures and other peripherals). Since 2000 the head quarter is located in Taoyuan, Taiwan. Six subsidiaries and numerous affiliates around the world provide an excellent network for ODM/OEM and retail business. Enermax has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, USA, Japan and China. Worldwide, over 600 employees work for Enermax. Since 2004, the Enermax Technology Corporation is listed at the Taiwanese stock exchange. Detailed technical knowledge and foresight played an essential role for the quick development of the Enermax brand. Prior to the establishment of their own business, the Enermax’ founders served in executive positions in IT industry. They have been well acquainted with the demands of ambitious, hardware enthusiastic customers and took the opportunity offered by the lack of premium-quality, high-performance and durable PC components at that time. Within a very short period of time, the Enermax brand became popular around the world. Enermax possesses two own factories and thereby guarantees product’s high quality and long lifetime. Own research and development departments assure steady advancement and innovative design of products. Over the last decades, their innovations and technologies continuously defined new standards for the market.
There are a few things that at first glance make the MAXREVO clearly one of the 3 best power supplies we have ever used. First as clearly stated by Enermax it missed the 80Plus Platinum certification by just 1% and so you can expect a power efficiency of up to 94% which is quite incredible for such a high wattage PSU. Also the unit is 100% modular which means it's also future proof if for some reason mainboard/PSU manufacturers decide to change the current power connectors with something new and better (something which should be done years ago). Specifications aside however you will also see later on that even though the unit is 100% modular it produced rock solid rails and did so while almost inaudible, compared always with similar wattage solutions.
