Published: 14th December 2006 | Source: Enermax | Price: |Introduction
When it comes to power supplies, Enermax is one of those household names that everyone will have heard of. Manufacturing PSU's for over 16 years it's no wonder that people often turn to Enermax for their power needs without even so much as a glance at offerings from other manufacturers. In fact, looking back now - the first PC I ever built with my own hands was fitted with a 300w Enermax unit.
We all know that the power requirements of the modern computer is on the sharp increase (I've certainly said it enough times) and as a result people are looking for the highest wattage units available as an investment into their PC's future and its ability to handle whatever you may throw at it.
Here we are today with Enermax's Quad CPU, Quad Core, Quad SLI monster complete with five +12v rails and a modular cable layout. It certainly sounds like Enermax have done their homework, but as the saying goes: "the proof of the pudding is in the tasting" so lets get down to business.
The first thing you'll notice when you get your hands on the Galaxy is its weight. Its not the kind of power supply you'd want to carry under your arm on the long walk home from the shops (unless you're planning on being a Stretch Armstrong double).
The small print on the front of the box lists some of the Galaxy's most notable features, including: Support for 24 Drives, Quad Core, Quad CPU's, 5x12v Rails, 2007 EPS12v specification, 80-85% Efficiency and much more.
Enermax have also listed the number of cables included for both the 850w and 1000w versions of the Galaxy on the back of the packaging along with the number of connectors that each cable has. Certainly handy for ascertaining what unit would best suit the needs of your 20+ disk RAID array!
The inventory of the box is as follows:
• 1x Enermax Galaxy PSU.
• 1x Power Cord.
• 4x ATX Screws.
• 1x Enermax Case Badge.
• 1x Enermax Lanyard.
• Manuals & Leaflets.
• 1x Canvas wallet for unused modular cables.
• Bundle of modular cables.
