The warranty is long enough, the price is at normal to good levels for a 1350W Gold PSU and the twister bearing fan promises increased longevity along with high cooling capacity and low noise output, at least at low-medium loads.

Enermax EMR1350EWT Power Specs
Max. Power25A25A30A30A30A30A30A30A4A0.5A
Total Max. Power1350W (1620W Peak)

With 1350W capacity six +12V rails is a reasonable number. The OCP trigger range on them, according to Enermax, is between 40-50A. Also the huge 1620W peak power looks strange for an only (!) 1350W PSU. The 1500W MaxRevo has only 30W more peak power at 1650W, so it seems that the EMR1350EWT shares many components with its bigger brother which allows a huge overclock in power if needed. Finally from such a powerful PSU we expected more than 4A power at 5VSB.

SATA (450mm+150mm) / 4 pin Molex (150mm+150mm)2 / 2

As expected, a huge number of cables/connectors are provided. First of all the unit uses a fully modular cabling system, something very convenient especially for cable management. As you can see eight PCIe connectors are provided via four cables. Each PCIe cable at around 350mm splits into two smaller ones with one PCIe connector each. Also the available sockets on the modular PCB for the PCIe cables and the separate EPS/ATX12V connector are six in total. So you can buy up to two additional PCIe cables and have twelve PCIe connectors, if you don't use the second EPS. Also you have at your disposal 14 SATA connectors and ten peripheral ones. We don't think that there will be anyone asking for more.
The 24 pin ATX along with the EPS and the PCIe connectors use thicker 16 AWG wires while all others are equipped with 18 AWG, the recommended minimum wire size by ATX spec.

The PSU features six +12V rails and since the power distribution is rather complicated, the following illustration will help you understand what's going on.
