3 out of 5 eggsWorked Well While It Lasted

Pros: Worked well
Pretty quite
cable sleeves is strong

Cons: Sort of large, but for 1000w, it comes with the territory.
sleeving isnt all the way down the cables
could have used more sata powers
it always randomly beeped, and got annoying.

Other Thoughts: It was a great power supply while it lasted, till a couple days ago it made a huge pop noise, and now when I try and power it on the rear LED goes red, and I get 2 beeps.

A real shame, as this wasn't exactly a cheap psu, and probably won't be buying another one from Enermax.

2 out of 5 eggsNo support

Pros: Very nice untill you need support are parts

Cons: No contact number, Will not respond to e-mail, or post on the forums.

Other Thoughts: intake fan on the bottom went out, they will not contact you back. So no matter what model number you get, if it goes out you can not replace the parts. And for a PS that cost this much you would think they would be a better company.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsBest Quality

Pros: I have built several gaming computers and have tested and researched many power supplies and have found this power supply is of the best Quality I have owned. The two ball bearing fans are Quiet yet powerful variable speed fans. Power beaker reset for supply protection, many SLI and crossfire connections. I have a water cooled 4 Gig system with triple video cards and a case with 12 fans , water pump, lighting , 12 gigs of memory and many extras and have plenty of power for two years now with not one problem.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a large power supply make sure you have a large case.

Extremely nice looking power supply with great wiring cords for high end computers.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Impressed!

Pros: Been using this for about 9 months now, and Love It! Very impressed with the way this unit works, and would buy another if I needed it!


I've read some negative comments about this supply and I'm conviced most are user created, not Enermax created. There is a right way to use PSUs and a wrong way. When building systems, not everything is going to be plug and play. You need to READ about the device first!

Cons: None. (Oh, maybe one, but not a biggie... would have been nice if the manual had a VERY detailed map/description of which rails are assigned to what power connectors and hard wired connections)

Other Thoughts: I've been purchasing and using Enermax PSUs for over 10 years now, and consider them the defacto for reliable units. I can honestly say, other than wearing some out, (I'm a heavy user) I've never had problems. Love 'em!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Value Customer,

Thank you for your honest feedback we will input your feedback to our HQ about the manual for rail assign. Thank you for choosing Enermax, if you have any question please feel free to contact us @ 888-778-7878.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing...

Pros: I've went through several high-end (and expensive) power supplies trying to power the following setup, and finally, this one did it...

Tyan Tempest S5397AG2NRF
Dual 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Xeon X5482 Harpertown
64GB (16 x 4GB) DDR2 FB-DIMM @ 800MHz with IDC3 Stepping
GeForce 9800GTX+ 512MB ram
750GB Seagate (boot drive)
4 x 1TB Seagate
tons of expansion cards...
and tons and tons of fans to keep this rig from starting a fire...

What more can I say? It advertises that it can handle power-hungry workstations and it actually does...

Cons: A little pricey, but it powers on my workstation. Can't complain...

Just to be nitpicky...

The bag that comes with it to hold the extra cables is inadequate. It's too small and doesn't close very securely. But then, I'm only running 1 video card and "only" 5 hard drives so I'm using 2 of like the 50 modular cables it comes with... The rest of which don't really fit into the bag.

Just look at those pictures... There's no way you can possibly fit all those cables into that little bag. (And they don't...)

Aside from that... Great power supply :)

Other Thoughts: This PS finally ended my 2-month long frustration...

I went through several high-end gaming power supplies but none of them could handle the sheer wattage that 64GB of ram can pull. Apparently, most power supplies have separate rails for PCI-e and CPU/mobo/ram. Which explains why high-end gaming PS's that can handle 4 full-sized video cards usually don't stand a chance against 16 FB-DIMMs and 300 watts of CPU.

And if you're wondering, I use this computer for programming, number-crunching, and gaming. (It runs Crysis pretty well on max settings as long as the resolution isn't too high.)

3 out of 5 eggsJust ok

Pros: Lots of power for just about anything. 1yr replacement from NewEgg and 3yr from Enermax.

Cons: This is the first psu that i have ever had fail. I have also read somewhere that this psu did not pass the 1k tests.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad psu but if i could go back and do it again i would go with the 1k Corsair

2 out of 5 eggsBeware

Pros: Has all the power you could ever need, all the cables you could ever need. Is fairly quiet for the size. Comes with lots of extra cables to plug into the expansion outlets on the power supply for extra peripherals.

Cons: Would have been better if all the cables were detachable so you didn't have to have unused cables hanging off of it.

Mine stopped turning on after about 4 months, then after I got an RMA number it magically started working again. This seems like a common problem after googling. After another 2 months it finally wouldn't turn on at all, just beeped, beep code meant short circuited. Enermax at first would not replace it because I didn't have a receipt, but they did end up replacing it....with an EGA1000EWL, slightly different/older/discontinued model and it was very scratched up and very used. Most companies are nice enough to give you a new replacement if yours dies that quickly, but Enermax gives you a beat up used different model at their discretion. Overall a big waste of money, now I have a used beaten up $350 power supply.

Dear Value Customer,

Please email me directly at and I'll get you a new replacement unit.

5 out of 5 eggsDAAAAAAAYUM, BEST PSU.

Pros: Best psu I ever owned. Still Hauling like one bad M.O.F.O.!

Holds Voltages very well. 2 8800gtx's holding about or above 12.10+12V, very rock stable psu.

Dont go by 3rd party programs to monitor your voltages, always use a Multi-tester, never rely on a single program on your current voltages as they will be off.

Cons: cons? tah NONE!

1 out of 5 eggsEnermax...

Pros: Lots of connections, you will never be underpowered...until it stops turning on.

Cons: After owning it for 4 months, I turned on my PC and get the infamous 1 second beep intervals. This means "abnormal power or short circuited". After calling enermax it magically started working again, then after leaving on vacation for a week I came back and PC wouldn't turn on, same problem.

So now I have to ship back this power supply, and wait 2 weeks for Enermax to ship one back. You'd think if you spent this much money they would at least have an advanced replacement option to get your replacement cuz now I'm without a PC for 2 weeks unless I buy another power supply.

Other Thoughts: It's not worth it, unless you are powering 3 video cards and 10 hard drives.
