    Enermax design team used lavish use of gold chrome polish on its 80 Plus Gold PSUs rushed in by the numbers last year. This is the year of the 80 Plus Platinum PSUs, and Enermax has its premium modular PSU line ready, called Enermax Platimax. Seen here are two of its top models, with output ratings of 900W and 1200W, ready for 3-way and 4-way multi-GPU setups. Among these, while the Platimax 900W is semi-modular, with some key cables such as ATX, EPS, etc., being fixed to the unit, the 1200W one is completely modular. Of course, Enermax doesn't have to both with bling gold paint on its 140 mm fan grille, it can just go with chrome to denote platinum.

    I had an Enermax ERV1020EWT and after about a month the fan stopped working. I sent it back (had to pay shipping expense) and they did send me a new one within a week; however when paying such a premium for a PSU I would expect the overall quality to be better. I have since sold it and purchased a Corsair AX1200.
    I may buy from them again....

    Corsair and Enermax are my two go-to companies. They're not known for QC issues, so chances are you got unlucky. Shame they made you pay shipping, though.

    They are mine as well. I could have simply replaced the fan myself but I did not want to void the warranty. I truly believe it was a fluke, but it did cost me.
