Enermax Galaxy 1000w Quad-SLI ATX PSU

Conclusion

Conclusion

Without a doubt the Enermax Galaxy is one awesome power supply. It's clear to see that a lot of R&D has gone into ensuring that the unit not only performs great with the current generation of computers, but is also fully equipped for the power hungry onslaught of computer hardware due any time in the near future.

Priced at £221 over at Specialtech, the Galaxy is also a great buy for a 1kw power supply - And judging by the weight and oversized components used inside the unit, no corners have been cut in the quality department to bring the price down either.

Managing an overall score of 97%, the Galaxy is certainly a contender for our "Best In Class" award for the 900w-1100w classification. Only once we've reviewed the rest of the 900w-1100w units on the market will this award be issued, so check back soon to see if the Galaxy bags the gold!


Pro's
• More cables and connectors than you can shake a stick at.
• Stable rails even at full load.
• Excellent efficiency.
• Fairly silent operation for a 1kw unit.
• High quality components.
• Well packaged.
• Unique black & gold cable sleeving.

Con's
• Longer than your average PSU - May not fit all cases.
• Unit is only really 50% modular.

"Having already reviewed a couple of 1000w+ units on the market, it seemed necessary to get hold of one of Enermax's Quad-SLI beasts to put through its paces. Does the Galaxy deserve all the attention it's been getting recently, we find out."

Yeah exactly. It would have been near impossible to impliment a sturdy modular system with all of those cables and remain 100% modular.Quote
