    Default Enermax Platimax 1200W

    The Enermax Platimax 1200W is fully modular and 80PLUS Platinum certified. Built to power a monstrous system, this premium power supply looks to shove aside the competition.

    This is a great PSU, but pricing does not make any sense, he Platimax 1200W PLatinum 80+ costs $50 more than it's big brother, the Max Revo 1350W Gold 80+

    Well this one is Platinum certified, not Gold. There are VERY FEW Platinum units at this wattage on the market. You do pay a premium, but you get a top notch PSU in return.

    But, if the MaxRevo was tested as a 1200w, rather than 1350w, unit would its efficiency be enough for the Platinum Cert? The MaxRevo runs just tenths of a percent away from the Platimax until they hit well over 1000w. It has been inferred elsewhere that these two units are basically physically identical.

    Good point, that is indeed possible. Both are excellent units, can't complain about either. There is some advantage to going with the cheaper one, you know Enermax builds fantastic power supplies and you'll still win with either unit.

    Very nice review Stan.

    Nice PSU, hopefully they will review their pricing and lower it.
