Enermax Releases New NAXM lineup of Power Supplies

By - Source: Enermax | B 9 comments

The new Enermax lineup of power supplies aim for better reliability and cable management

Enermax has announced a new lineup of power supplies, and whilst the NAXN series has been around for quite some time, its new lineup of ADV (standing for ‘Advanced Performance’) power supplies carry one particularly refreshing feature: 100 percent flat cables. That means that even the 24 pin motherboard cable is flat, something usually only found on aftermarket cables. Enermax aims for this to reduce cable clutter and increase case airflow.

The power supplies will be available in four variants: 350W, 450W, 550W and 650W, and will all be built with a single powerful 12V rail. The power supplies will carry the usual 80+ certificate, but will also come in variants with 80+ Bronze and 80+ Gold for enthusiasts.

Moreover, the units will feature high quality electrolytic capacitors, a Japanese made main capacitor for increased stability, along with a double ball bearing fan for increased durability and silent operation.

Enermax’s new NAXN ADV lineup will come with a three year warranty period.

No information on pricing or availability is available yet.

    The big advantage of these P/S units is supposed to be the cables, and they don't even have pictures of them included in the press release. *yawn*

    And what does 100% flat even mean?

    Remember those IDE flat cables? They used to replace then with round cables for better airflow. Now they're going the other way?

    LOL so true! I remember swapping out all my IDE's for round ones. I think the difference here is, remember how wide those IDE cable were, now flat cables are fairly narrow.

    I fail to see how a flat cable is better for the air flow.
    if the flat cable could be arranged flat against the case... sure. But if it just
    takes it's random course thru the innards of the case it will create more problems
    to the air flow that it solves.
    Or am I missing something here ?

    Fully round is better and only a single fan? Should have 2 fans for redundency

    Back in the day of flat IDE cables, the cases didn't have a space in the back to route cables through, or much of any place to lay a cable flat on. Today, good cases consider cable routing much better, and there could be benefit, I think, in the flat cables. Certainly the space behind the mainboard tray is tight on some cases, and I could see a flat cable being better in those situations.

    Otherwise, I agree with the general consensus here, I think it's mostly fad.

    probably instead of haveing the cables balled up into cilindars, they welded them (the plastic) together to make them flat.

    sure, if you have bad cable management, this would be a problem and obstruct airflow, but on the flipside, it makes the cables more manageable and flexable, getting them into harder to read areas.

    it may just be me, but i see no real reason for such thick cables when im hooking up a harddrive, or a dvd drive...

    is there a reason that those cables for those are so thick?

    i mean gpu, i understand, motherboard, i understand, but harddrives or dvd drives... do they need to be so un bend ably thick?
