Introduction to the Enermax MaxRevo 1350W Power Supply

Enermax is known and may always be known for making some of the best power supplies to come to market. Over the years we have taken looks at many of them like the Liberty, LibertyECO and the Galaxy. Each of the ones mentioned were aimed at particular individuals and system rigs. Enermax over the past few years have ventured over to other areas of computing like cases, cooling and input devices. Yes, we have taken looks at some of these as well. Search the site and take a look at some of the great reviews.

Closer look

The MaxRevo 1350W is the highest wattage 80PLUS Gold rated power supply we have ever tested. The previous record holder was the Thermaltake Grand 1200. Being Gold rated means the power supply was able to withstand at least 87% efficiency between 20% up to 100% load testing. According to Enermax, the MaxRevo maintained at least 88% efficiency across the same testing spectrum.

The MaxRevo’s cosmetics are slightly different from what we have come accustom to seeing when dealing with power supplies. The MaxRevo is a more rugged and robust look about it. The surface of the unit feels like gravel if you were to slide your finger tips across it. The MaxRevo is measures just about 180mm long meaning it should fit easily in most case environments.

To keep the internals of the MaxRevo at bay, Enermax integrated a 139mm Twister fan underneath the surface of the unit. Load controlled the Twister can run between 900RPM and 2000RPM. Enermax designed the fan to run as quiet as possible throughout the entire RPM range.

Along the two long sides of the power supply, we have the MaxRevo displayed in gold lettering and the trade ‘arrows’ engraved into the sides.

The rear of the PSU is typical in design consisting of honeycomb opening for heat exhaust, a toggle power switch and power connector. One item of interest is the small loops for the ‘CordGuard’ system which will prevent the power cable from being pulled from the PSU.

The top side of the power supply has the descriptive specifications of the MaxRevo. The PSU’s 12v rails combines for 1344W of the unit.

The MaxRevo is totally modular and more many is great. The connections on the PSU neatly designed and arranged in such a way to make things easier on the end user. The black connections are for the main ATX, aux and SATA/Molex cables while the bottom mounted red ones are for the PCIe power extensions.

Results

We know that testing a power supply on a loaded system is not the very best way to do so, but you can not overlook real world testing. Other sites have methods that use thousands of dollars in equipment to provide them greater detail. We have a trusty digital multi-meter. Those sites and the methods they use should be the true means of determining how good a power supply really is; however, we feel that showing you how it performs under real world conditions is also a valid measure of its performance.


Conclusion

For those in need of a very high powered power supply the Enermax MaxRevo 1350W is definitely worth a look see. The massive amounts of power in which the MaxRevo can produce is ideal for multi-GPU gaming rigs. We can only imagine this unit being placed in the same box with quad Nvidia 590s or AMD Radeon 6990s. Enermax proud themselves on providing the end user with the very best and the MaxRevo is definitely that.
