Enermax Modu 82+ 525 Watts
Enermax is jumping onto the energy-savings train, and has entered its 525 watt Modu82+ model into the race. The marketing name is designed to suggest greater efficiency to the customer: the reference to the 80Plus standard is surely not coincidental, and the Modu82+ does have this certification. But there is no 82Plus standard.
As the name suggests, this is a power supply with modular connection cables. The ATX connections and the CPU power are attached directly to the power supply. The sockets for PCIe as well as Molex and SATA are different, unlike the previous models we’ve seen, and cannot be confused. The connection cables are not compatible with the company’s older products.
The cooling of the power supply is handled by a 120 mm fan, with speed automatically regulated based on temperature. There is no manual setting, so you’ll have to trust that Enermax’s balance between noise and heat is acceptable The fan follow-up control used to protect the components, which you may have been familiar with from Enermax’s previous series is no longer included with the Modu82+.
