Anybody that knows me from the Overclock3D Forums will know that I've got a 'soft spot' for two things - powerful PSU's and modular PSU's. The Galaxy certainly seems to fit into both of these categories, but lets take a closer look at the Galaxy's design before getting all excited!
We can also see that Enermax have made the wise decision of using PCI-E style modular connectors on the Galaxy. These connectors have proven to be extremely sturdy (much more so than molex-based modular PSU's) and are also very compact in comparison with other modular connector designs.
The main ATX cable is native 24-pin with no way of reducing it down to the older 20-pin standard. Users of 20-pin ATX motherboard will need to purchase an adapter separately in order to use the Galaxy. However, Enermax have provided two cables for EPS12v (8-pin) and P4-12v (4-pin) so that the Galaxy will still be able to support some slightly older motherboards.
Also included is a 3-pin fan cable which can be connected to one of your motherboard's fan headers to obtain a readout of the power supply fan RPM.
