ENERMAX Launches World's Most Compact 1200W PSU

ENERMAX announces the launch of new Platinum-rated power supply series, Platimax D.F. 1200W/1050W/850W/750W. The new lineup is 80 PLUS Platinum certified power supply with fully modular cable design. In addition to the DFR self-cleaning technology, new Platimax D.F. incorporates a D.F. switch for users to manually activate the self-cleaning function anytime during operation. Moreover, the series features smart semi-fanless control which ensures absolute quiet operation at lower loads. With rock-solid stability and superior performance, Platimax D.F. is without doubt a perfect solution for high-resolution gaming rigs or multi-GPU systems.

Built with high-density PCB design, Platimax D.F. supports Max. 1200W with only 160mm in depth gives enthusiasts greater flexibility in case selection. Current power supplies over 1000W on the market are generally larger, many of them measuring 180mm to 225mm in depth. The larger dimensions necessitate a PC case with a lot of interior space, which decreases a builder's freedom in selecting a chassis. Platimax D.F. 1200W is the smallest of its kind.
DFR Tech. & Unique D.F. switch Design
A standard PSU fan would cause dust build up on intake and fan blades. ENERMAX DFR Tech. is able to make the PSU fan spin in reverse to reduce accumulated dust. With D.F. switch design, users can activate DFR Tech. to blow away dust at any time during operation, even in the normal operation.

Smart Semi-fanless Control for Quieter Cooling Performance
Platimax D.F. is engineered with fanless mode before 30%~40% of system load for silent operation. On the other hand, when system load exceeds 30%~40%, the fan starts to spin and the fan speed is automatically regulated according to the system load.

Warranty and Availability
Platimax D.F. 850W-1200W will come with 5 years global warranty and additional 5 years warranty for US and Canada only. It is the first 10 years warranty product by LEPATEK Corporation.

MSRP: USD $269.99. For more information, visit the product page.

Who is the OEM for this? EDIT (Found a great resource: Link) What's with the limited PCiE connectors?

What's with the limited PCiE slots?
I assume you mean power connectors?

Why limited? Each 10-pin connector on the PSU feeds a pair of 6+2 connectors.
With 3 of those on 1200W model it's a total of 6x[6+2] connectors or an equivalent of 900W of GPU power.
The one in the OP is probably an 850W model (official website has one more PCI-e power connector on the empty spot).

Mostly it's CWT. But depends from series. Back deep in the past Enermax produced PSU's by their own. But recently they went in a more cheap way (since they lost a large market share).

And here is more accurate db for the OEM info: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page567.htm

I haven't heard from Enermax for quite long time about review times.

Yea Enermax's own site list two different images for the connectors:

http://www.enermaxusa.com/product.php?pid=91250026#!/Platimax D.F. 1200W/p/91250026

With that said i'm accustomed to 1000 + Watt PSU's being able to accommodate more than two PCIe 6+2 cables. I suppose it depends if you have two high powered GPU's that take two 6+2 cables, then you'll need a total of four. I never recommend using split 6+2 cables on a single connector. Ultimately depends on your setup I suppose. My setup requires two CPU EPS 4+4 and four 6+2 cables for PCIe to properly power my system.

It's a 10-pin connector for each pair, which is more than enough to accommodate 300+W per connector. Wiring can handle a lot more than that.

Are you too lazy to use google? If you were really interested in the topic, you'd probably figured out by now who Channel Well Technologies are and what they make.

So they no longer produce their own units? What a shame.

I've owned quite a few Enermax'es before switching to Seasonic completely in 2010. The last Enermax I had was an Infiniti 720W which died after 5 years of usage.

They still design their own units but since they dont own their own factory they get CWT to make it
So you are still getting an Enermax designed PSU.
