Enermax certainly aren't shy when it comes to appearance. Looking back at some of their older creations, I can remember a PSU that resembled a solid gold bar and many other units sprayed in either red or blue metallic paint. Have Enermax continued this trend with the Galaxy? Lets find out.
The Galaxy features a 135mm clear plastic fan on the bottom of the unit responsible for pushing air over the components, with an 80mm around the back for extracting hot air. Both fans are protected with Enermax's trademark gold fan grills that contrast well with the colour of the casing.
Enermax have done away with the minuscule power switches found on many other units in favour of a heavy duty version and a similarly rugged reset button. This is certainly a necessary feature when you consider that this unit will be drawing substantial power from the mains when at full load.
The top of the unit (the bit most people won't see unless you've got one of those up-side down cases) is partially covered with the Enermax specification sticker that details the output of the units rails along with the usual warnings about opening the PSU casing.
