    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    no, but then i can moan that a ferrari is never going to be 8/10 value...

    (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.
