Looks good.

I admittedly didn't read every word, but I see there ~10 sata power headers - Is this PSU capable of running those, a standard molex, and sufficient PCI-E 6+6/8 for two X2 cards?

My idiot counting says yes, but well. I count badly.

I quite like this unit, reasonably pretty with great power yields, awesome :D

Looks like another nice product from Enermax BUT..........they still insist on using that damn ugly cable sleeving, I HATE IT. just whack a nice black sleeve on there, not that crappy black and yellow striped sleeving.

i agree , not a fan of the striped sleeving either! pretty impressed at this product if all bit-tech are doing are nitpicking at the aesthetics of the box :P

On the efficiency graph it reads Enemax 95+

Great review, looks like a beast of a supply! Are those the highest scores ever given by bit-tech? They've got to be close getting 47/50!

Great product, but then it should be at £189. I think that the speckled finish cheapens the overall look of the unit, the Dark Pros are so much classier.

If I needed that much, I'd get it.
But I don't. Sorry, Enermax.

I can see why most people wouldn't like the colour scheme, but ironically it matches my current rig perfectly. Shame I don't think I can swing £190 right now.

£190 for a psu and 8/10 value?

i know 1000W jobs are pricey, but just on principle it shouldnt get 8/10!

Well, but it's just DA BEST! :p

This PSU should get 10/10 On everything.... All Respect For Enermax. They Rule the Industry with power supplies they make.

Me Myself when I want Power Supply I will buy enermax without thinking ;) I own a killer one now but I mean in future..

My Advise ;) Any one want a REAL Power Supply go with enermax ;) Also they have the best After sales support and warranty... I'm talking from my own experience with them.

Thanks for the review Guys ;) Well done.

Why? It's a very high quality product.

You can't moan a Focus RS isn't the price of a Tata Nano.

(besides, a focus rs isnt a premium car :P)

Depends if you need a super car or not and what your budget is? How about a Ferrari compared to a Bugatti or etc?

Compare the Revolution to the TurboCool 1kW.

it all depends how you look at value really, anything can look like relatively good value within its product class, but that cant escape the fact that the whole product class is overpriced.

I'd still buy a Corsair over the Enermax, purely on the cable system Corsair uses, much better IMO.

PSU's in general make great margins that's why everyone does them. But then again, you consider the cost of development not just raw materials. If the whole class is overpriced and someone goes "I'll charge £100 for the same thing" THEN you can claim everything else is bad value.

that sentence makes no sense...

If the whole class is overpriced then by default it is bad value for money...

With quite a few cases having two psu slots these days people would be better off getting two decent branded 450-500W psus for half the money!

You could do that but you would have more weight, more heat, more noise and more cables to deal with. Not to mention less space to work with and you have to use one of those ATX power adapters to make sure they both power on at the same time.

Tons of power, modular, silent, not too big, high efficiency = wants.

Now I just need a reason to ditch my Seasonic M12:D

Most impressive findings in this review.

Has anyone been able to find any of the other siblings of this series online in the EU area, preferrably ones that deliver outside their resident country? Would be most thankful for such information =] (Prices in Finland are stupidly high for these, hence looking for alternatives)
