    Simply too expensive. You can get other premium makes for alot less money and supply just a good quality power, if not better.

    As someone who's pretty much tested every psu going, the is no better make than Enermax I.M.O and it really is a case of you get what you pay for.

    One of the few firms who build from the ground up rather than rebadge some OEM. Now they've sorted out the noise levels personally I wouldn't use anything else.

    Agree, they are fantastic. But they're often unaffordable.

    My point too, its just too expensive for the average or high end buyer, its like the Bentley of PSU's

    Now if one was given to me as a pressie, then I would be over the moon. Wonder how silent this is in real world.

    Re: News - Enermax releases updated Revolution85+ PSUs

    Personally, i think their lower models are quite fairly priced, but the higher end ones are too over priced when compared to their relative competition.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Re: News - Enermax releases updated Revolution85+ PSUs

    The problem with the lower models is that, given past experience, they were pretty average. Solid enough, but they pulled the trick of the QTecs and other budget PSU brands by over-quoting the power they could pull, leading to fairly average specs dropping power to hard drives and the likes.

    I'm fairly sure they've moved away from that since (indeed their top PSUs seem to be on a resurgence and appear to fall in right behind Seasonic again) but given the past it's hard to recommend the lower PSUs based on how strong their top ones are, as they have sod all in common.
