Enermax and LEPA at Computex 2017

Enermax, once a major player in the enthusiast ATX PSU market, unfortunately settled into obscurity over the past few years. Determined to change this, they have put a lot of development into new products, some of which are decidedly intriguing. Along with their sister brand LEPA, they put on a solid showing at Computex 2017. Of course Enermax had the SteelWing chassis we reviewed a few months ago on display! Still an awesome little case and it was great seeing it in person. Here it is displayed alongside one of the Enermax Revolution SFX power supplies which we also reviewed. [mks_separator …

Enermax Revolution SFX 550W review

The SFX power supply market must be growing, because it seems like every few months now there are companies announcing new PSUs aimed at SFF enthusiasts. It was late last year that Enermax announced their Revolution SFX series, and today we’re now looking at the Revolution SFX 550W. While Enermax is no stranger to power supplies – and has even sold SFX units in the past – this is their first one aimed at the compact gaming rigs that have become significantly more prevalent nowadays. At a high level, the Revolution SFX 550W features fully modular cables, Gold-rated efficiency, all-Japanese capacitors, and is a 550W …

An In Depth Review of the Enermax SteelWing

We would like to thank Enermax for providing us with a review sample of their Enermax SteelWing chassis. Without their generosity, this case review would not be possible. Originally announced back in May of last year, Enermax released the Enermax SteelWing chassis in October of 2016 with little-to-no fanfare. In fact, a quick search around the net reveals that this case hasn’t even received a proper review – and it probably doesn’t help that the case isn’t listed on the Enermax USA website, either. However, after meeting with Enermax at CES, we are pleased to have the opportunity to review their entire line of small form …

Enermax to launch Revolution SFX series of power supplies.

On December 9th, Enermax will launch their new Revolution SFX series of power supplies. Available in 550W and 650W variants, these 80-Plus Gold, fully modular power supplies are yet another welcome addition to the SFF market. With semi-fanless operation up to 30% utilization, the offset 80mm fan will (hopefully) help to provide quiet operation depending on the system load. This unit appears to be based on the same Enhance Electronics platform as the SilverStone SX600-G, Thermaltake STP-0600F-G, and Lian-Li PE-550 though so it will remain to be seen if Enermax has improved on the fan controller deficiencies inherent to the platform. Edit1: or maybe not. …

Enermax reveals the Steelwing mATX case

Tom’s Hardware has some details of the Enermax Steelwing microATX case they teased last month. It’s an aluminum microATX case with a glass side panel and support for 260mm long video cards. MSRP is $140 and will hopefully be available in July. The picture is low resolution and has a reflection but from what I can tell this is only a 3-slot case. So running two graphics cards will require water cooling and will be limited to cards that either come with the IO in a single-slot configuration or will require modding to remove the DVI connector that would be in the way on …
