Enermax Platimax 850W Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅24-02-12

It’s hard to get excited about a power supply but Enermax have designed such a beautiful looking unit in the Platimax that you have to appreciate the handy work that has gone into producing such a nice piece of kit. Observing both the inner and outer aesthetics and construction reveals a level of care that is rare to see with PSU design.

When using the Platimax 850W in a dual graphics card configuration with NVIDIA SLI our test system pushed for 88% load. Under this type of strenuous operation the unit remained strong in its performance and noise levels which was very pleasing to see.

Backed with a 5 year warranty the Platimax is a superb choice for those who are clearly wanting the best for their system though price could be an issue. The 850W version under review today can be had for around £250 so this unit will be reserved for the avid enthusiast with money to spare.

Enermax have done a cracking job with the Platimax and it will remain a product that is spoken of highly throughout the enthusiast communities for some time. Based on my findings I am happy to reward the Enermax Platimax with our GOLD award.

+ Great quality inside and out
+ Strong performance at 88% load
+ Quiet operation
+ 5 year warranty

- Braiding on cables looks ugly
- Price
