Enermax MAXPRO 500w Power Supply Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Enermax makes some of the best PSUs money can buy, that much is no secret. Only recently we reviewed the Enermax DIGIFANLESS 550W PSU and we honestly think it’s one of the best power supplies we’ve ever tested! It set the bar pretty high and while the unit we’re testing today is a little further down the price ranges, I’m still eager to see if it delivers the same uncompromising performance we’ve seen from Enermax products in the past.
The MAXPRO is designed to be a little more cost-effective, so it strips away the premium packaging, there are no modular cables and it only offers standard 80 Plus efficiency, which doesn’t sound that great, but from what we’ve been told, it makes up for this with rock solid build quality and great performance. Designed for demanding systems, the MAXPRO will run stable & safe 24/7 @ 40c operation, which is certainly better than most. IT comes with all the safety regulations you could hope for, a high-quality 12cm fan for virtually silent operation, it’s Haswell ready and much more.
As I said before, the packaging is pretty basic, but at the end of the day, a box is just a box and that’s a little extra cost saving for the consumer.
In the box, you’ll find the mains adaptor, a simple user’s manual and some mounting screws; not much, but it’s literally all you’re going to need.
