    Too many watts for my liking, although nice efficiency at 10%.

    I've generally picked med-high end Enermax PSU's because I know they are going to last, I've yet to have a failure. However, a few other brands have caught my eye recently so the next build won't be a quick decision.

    Those cables are a deal breaker, very unattractive.

    Same here, if your following a particular colour scheme the cables just don't do it for me.

    Enermax has told us that it is upgrading the Revolution87+'s cables to flat versions that fit in better with the colour scheme. This engineering change should be done in the next month or so.

    Re: Reviews - Enermax Revolution87+ 850W PSU

    With PC components getting more energy efficient, im more interested in Gold/Platinum PSUs that deliver less than 500W at a decent price.

    was thinking more reasonably priced! i.e. http://www.scan.co.uk/products/360w-...lent-fan-dc-dc

    Re: Reviews - Enermax Revolution87+ 850W PSU

    Personally I'm planning on spending big money on my next PSU, I mean what is the lifespan on a top-end unit? 20-30 years?

    Not sure how much it should be, but my mid/high end Antec True Power Trio 550w is at 6.5 years right now (paid $150 at the time, which was adequate for a Seasonic-made 80Plus unit and was probably the best I could buy on my country).

    Seasonic say 150,000 hours MTBF, so that's 17 years of constant use.

    MTBF is a flawed assessment of drive life, but it's the only measure they can give seeing as it's impractical to test drives for years at a time As long as you don't actually take it to mean x hours before failure it's fine (it's actually a measure of how many drives in a certain batch size have failures).

    Well between the 7 year warranty and the 150,000 hour MTBF I feel pretty happy.
    The MTBF is no guarantee, but it's pleasantly reassuring.
