Enermax Platimax Series Complete

Platimax continues the row of path-breaking power supplies from Enermax. It is based on the proved, high-performance technologies of predecessor power supply series, the so-called Dynamic Hybrid Transformer (DHT) Topology and Full-Zone Magnetic Quadrant Transformer (FMQ) Design. Enermax engineers successfully improved the cooling performance by applying innovative solutions and equipped the PSU with hand-picked, premium-quality components. That way, Platimax breaks down the barriers of the highest efficiency class, 80 PLUS Platinum.

With 89 to 94 per cent efficiency between 20 and 100 per cent load, Enermax shows the way into the future of power supply. Due to its first-class components, the flexible modular or full-modular cable management and numerous connectors, the new series is designed for long-during and reliable operation. According to that, the manufacturer grants 5 years warranty on all Platimax PSU.

Platinum Power for Overclockers
For the first time, Enermax introduces a power supply that is dedicated to users of overclocked computer systems. In contrast to the other models of the series, the Platimax 1000W OC Edition is based on a single-rail design. According to that, the most important system components like CPU, mainboard and graphic card are supplied by a single 12V rail. It has the capability to deliver up to 83A (996W), so more than enough power to ensure a stable operation of overclocked CPU and graphic cards.

Yah, they look well but performance-wise, they aren't so shiny. At high loads, regulation takes a dive on the 1200W version:

Also, those prices are totally ridicilious. I mean, €185 for 500W, which isn't even a new design? Enermax has already used that design (tweaked Modu 87+) twice on the Lepa. The big units are also fixed MaxRevo units, so nothing new here actually. These units are no match for SuperFlower's Platinum offerings.

On the very bright side, the Galaxy Evo 1250 (Revo 85+) is still available and is one hell of a PSU.

I'll stick with my EVO 1250W for now. It should serve me for a few years to come.
