    Any of you guys have any experience with the new Enermax line of Liberty Eco power supplies? I just ordered one of these from NewEgg to future proof myself for my inevitable return to CrossfireX. In my past history with power supplies, Enermax has been THE BEST brand I've ever encountered, with Corsair in a close second place, so I'm sure I can trust them.

    I hadn't even heard of this line, and I was all set to purchase the MODU82+ 625W PSU, but then I saw this one, and it has dual 30A 12V rails! As opposed to the like quad or more 12V rails on most PSUs. Plus, it has a $40 MIR and free shipping bringing it down to $110, which is cheaper than the MODU82+ anyways!

    Chime in if you love Enermax! :D

    I have two original Liberty power supplies (620W & 400W) and they are still running like new. I also have an Infinity one and another 600watt from 2006 (if I remember correctly) In my opinion Enermax are rock solid and I trust them more than any other even tho run an Antec in my main rig.

    Enermax are a great brand period and the Liberty line is great as well but somehow i doubt that PSU will run 2 4870 in Crossfire. For starters its not certified by ATI to run those cards, granted they cant certify every PSU out there and they overstate sometimes but it seems to me that it may cause problems for you. You could've picked a Silencer Quad 750W for the same money, that thing should run those cards in xfire no problem.

    Meh, I'm not worried about it. The original Liberty DXX 400W edition could handle a 2900xt + q6600 +4GB Ram + a few SATA drives, no problem. With both Enermax and Corsair, their output ratings are LARGE underestimates, as the 400W was easily capable of sustaining near 500W under load, and still maintain a good power efficiency (maybe not the 85+ promised by the new Eco Liberties, but still very good).

    My current Antec NeoPower 500w PSU handled dual 3870s or a single 4870 no problem, and this new Enermax is significantly better per Watt, and has and additional 120 to work with.

    I just got one of the Liberty PSUs back from RMA. It died at about 2 years, 3 months from purchase. They replaced with the same model which is still in production.
