Enermax's line of PSUs feature products for every available niche. The NAXN series has been distinguished as solid, quiet and reliable power supply units for system builders and DIYers.

Like the original NAXN, the NAXN ADV features all of the requirements of modern PSU including being 82PLUS ready since it is able to run at 82-88% efficiency with a 20-100% load and is therefore compliant with the 80PLUS BRONZE efficiency requirements. It is also desgined for constant use and is ready for 24/7 daily operation. This is important for critical non-stop industrial class performance at an ambient temperature of 40°C/104°F. And like the original NAXN the ADV edition is also world ready being able to handle 100-240VAC input with automatic adjustments as needed and with Active PFC for global usage.

Their lower end power supplies are sub-par, EH!!!! Antec, Corsair and Seasonic are so much better. Also, they are generally priced to high.

Some models of Corsair, Antec and many other brands of PSUs are also low grade. If you want to be sure that you're buying a quality PSU, buy Seasonic or at least check the specific PSU model reviews at Jonnyguru or Hardware Secrets to see if the PSU you're interested in is crap or quality.

Brand doesn't mean a thing unless it's Seasonic as there are companies capable of building a good PSU that make one or two highend models to get good reviews, then they sell a bunch of crap lower models to make lots of money. Corsair, Antec and many other companies have their PSUs contract manufacturered from the lowest cost bidder and they are often willing to cut corners to hit a specific price point, contrary to what they might say in the marketing materials.

I agree with you, however most of the Enermax that I have seen reviewed have just been ok or pretty good.

So is Hardware Secrets a good review source for PSU as well? Speaking of which, I haven't checked JonnyGURU in a while either...


I don't have a clue on how much this specific unit costs here, but generally, Enermaxes are a bit overpriced here.

Yes, Hardware Secrets is good. Enermax, is generally over priced for what you get.

Both Jonnyguru and Hardware Secrets are good PSU review sources. The point is that you need to read reputable reviews for the exact PSU model, not for a similar model or for a brand, as most brands offer a variety of quality levels and PSU designs, most of which are not up to the performance and quality of a Seasonic and they often cost more while delivering less. You'd be very hard pressed to find a better PSU than a Seasonic regardless of price. When comparing the best PSUs, price, features and customer support should be your areas of comparison.

For years PC Power and Cooling (who created the high quality/high performance consumer PC PSU market segment), sold PSUs of similar or identical quality to Seasonic as some of their PSUs were produced by Seasonic. After OCZ bought PCPC things deteriorated so I now suggest that folks eliminate the middle man and go to the source - Seasonic, so that you don't pay for something that you aren't getting and so that you get a top quality PSU and best value. Independent objective scientific testing confirms Seasonic's PSUs to be top notch. While there are a few other models of PSUs that are equal in quality to Seasonic, they tend to always cost more and may have questionable customer support, so why bother?
