Enermax turns on new power supplies and fans at CES

Those in the know are already aware that Enermax sells some of the finest power supplies around. The company announced at CES that it's adding a ton of new models to its range of PSUs, and it's also spinning up a pile of new fans that incorporate its "Dust-Free Rotation" (DFR) technology.

Enermax's new power supplies comprise two new lines, plus some new models for the existing Platimax D.F. family. The Platimax D.F. series is an existing line of ATX power supplies that bear 80 Plus Platinum certification, offer fanless operation when under 40% load, and a fully modular design. The "D.F." in the name refers to the fans usage of DFR tech. Enermax is already selling the 500W and 600W versions, but is now adding models with 750W, 850W, 1050W, and 1200W capacities.

The new entrants in the PSU game are the ultra-high-end MaxTytan and the entry-level RevoBron series. The RevoBron power supplies appear to be a more affordable version of the company's bread-and-butter Revolution series. The new units will carry 80 Plus Bronze certification and will also include DFR-equipped fans. Enermax is kicking off the RevoBrons lineup with 500W, 600W, and 700W models.

Finally, the MaxTytan power supplies have 80 Plus Titanium certification, joining a rarefied category. That means these PSUs are at a minimum 90% efficient, even at very low or peak loads. They also support fanless operation below 55% load, and offer fully modular cabling. The MaxTytan series will be debuting with 750W, 800W, 1050W, and 1250W-capacity models.

Virtually all of Enermax's fans have been updated with its DFR tech, including the Vegas, Vegas Duo, and Pressure series. The new fans earn a "D.F." prefix on the front (e.g. D.F. Vegas Duo). In addition to those updates, Enermax is also bringing out a high-pressure fan called D.F. Storm with a new blade design that the company says creates 30% more airflow at the same RPM than its other spinners.

The D.F. Storm fans will be available in a 120mm size for $29.99 in March, while all of the new power supplies are listed as coming in April. Prices on the RevoBron units aren't listed yet, but the new PlatiMax D.F. units run from $185 to $250. Meanwhile, the MaxTytan units will come in at $200 to $360.

    Is it just me or does “Platimax” sound like some kind of arthritis medication?

    Not to mention that enermax doesnt even make their own PSUs anymore. They just rebrand them like a lot of the sellers do now.

    360$ for a titanium 1250W O_o? Seasonic’s 850w titanium is only 200$ and it’s a safe bet their new primes at higher wattage wont cost more than this. We’re talking Enermax here, which hasn’t aged well versus the number one PSU marker.

      Nice to see something we agree on-Seasonic being the ONE others are measured against.
      Some may say that EVGA/Superflower models are keeping them on their toes…………………

      Is the ODM the same as EVGA’s SuperNova G3 that JG recently reviewed and claimed “mythic” voltage regualtion?

        • JosiahBradley

        Unless they switched Enermax should be using CWT designs. JG had to update their site because the Seasonic Titaniums made mythic way too easy. JG said he might have to buy a new meter to keep testing these things. See the prime 750w review for more info.

          Thanks. Will do. I’m in the market for a new PSU when I do a Ryzen build in the following months.

            • HERETIC

            Yeah CWT and FSP seem to be their main suppliers,thro I see someone I’ve never heard of before
            listed as new/coming “Yue-Lin”

            In my opinion-PSU is the most important part of any build.
            Best Value/Quality PSU’s at the moment are Seasonic G series and EVGA/Superflower G2.
            You can get better at more cost if your inclined,but for a new build I wouldn’t go lower.
            Good luck with your build…………………………

    I had an MSI graphics card back in 2013 that ran the fans full speed reverse for a couple seconds on boot, and it really worked. It’s good to see that idea getting around a bit more.

      That’s slightly open to interpretation. After all, their fans other than the D.F. Storm all have so-far-traditional blades? :^)

    I pity Marketing…they were SO close and just missed it. Knocking off only one letter would have yielded a far superior, cooler name: “RevoBro”–short for Revolutionary Brother.

    Great. These fans clean themselves, but where does the dust go? If you use the separate fans as exhaust fans you’re spitting the dust back into the case.

      • curtisb

      I suppose you could use a different model fan for the exhaust fans? For example, use the D.F. Vegas for intake fans, and the T.B. Vegas for exhaust fans.
