Without a doubt the Galaxy has some features not found on any other power supplies at present. It would certainly seem that Enermax have taken a look at the requirements of the future PC and incorporated some of the features that are going to be needed to power the next generation computer systems.

As we can see on the sheet above, the Galaxy has a total of five +12v rails each rated at 17a. Initially I thought this was slightly worrying as future graphics cards are set to far in excess of 17a, however Enermax haver cleverly allowed the rails to 'combine forces' avoiding the issue.

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