A Closer Look

The Platimax D.F. 1200W comes in a textured black shell with a dark chrome grill that looks great.

The underside of the Platimax is mostly covered with a label.

The edges that you’ll most likely see when installed has the Platimax D.F. logo on each side in white.

The rear of the power supply has the IEC power inlet, main power switch, and a Dust Free switch. You can press this at any time to run the fan at full speed in reverse to clean it of dust.

The opposite end of the power supply has the modular connections.

The number of cables is seemingly pretty small, but actually covers all of the bases for a 1200W class power supply.

The main 24-pin and twin CPU connections, one 8-pin EPS and a 4+4-pin.

SATA connections number up to a dozen across 3 cables, you get four PATA connectors on a single cable as well as an old Berg connector adapter.

We really like the way Enermax does the PCIe cables. There are three cables that each fan out to a pair of 6+2 connections. You don’t get the ugly daisy-chained cables or the odd +2 pigtail hanging off the 6 pin that you can't hide like other systems.

These all run back to a single 10-pin connection at the power supply.
