Package Contents and Specifications


As with the former Pro82+, the Pro87+ again omits cable management. This means that all of the cables are attached to the power supplies and you will not be able to remove any of them. In the package you will find a power cord, cable straps, a sticker, screws, the CordGuard™ and the manual in many different languages. The packages come with tons of explanations and information to show you why this power supply is better than the competition. It's a little too much if you ask us, but at least you have something to read once you spot one of these packages on the shelves of your local dealer.


The Modu87+ is the cable management version and comes with detached cables and a nice pouch to store unused cables. Additionally you get a power cord, screws, the CordGuard, a sticker, cable straps, and a manual.

Specifications







The internal structure is the same in both series; you will find the exact same PCB and components in a 500W Modu87+ as in a Pro87+. All of the different wattages come with the same three 12V rails of 25A; the difference is in the total combined power. Don't assume you can pull the same amount out of the different models, because there are other limitations that make this impossible. Specifically, some of the capacitors are smaller on the lower wattage models. Also worth note is that with only 20A to 24A on the 3.3V and 5V rails, Enermax follows the trend of modern systems that need less from these rails than older systems.

    Probably because over 90% of the computers that exist are built by OEMs, and a high quality power supply is too expensive for that application. You are going to have a hard time selling consumers on "higher quality power" when that is something they expect to just work. Reply

    A patent on a 140mm fan? Seriously? What a load of crap. They should have made the 139mm 139.9mm and put a big red F in their booklet with the name of the patent-holder. What is this world coming to? Reply

    I have to say I am very pleased with the modular PSU's sticking with the same plug design. That would make cable management after installation a thing of the past which I think for 90% of us DIY builders is what keeps us from replacing a PSU mid-upgrade cycle. Instead just disconnect the cables from the old PSU, pop in the new one, and connect the cables again.

    I do want to mention a PSU I installed for my cousin about a month ago. I for the life of me can't remember the brand but it was definitely a high-end PSU. It was modular and instead of using the typical A/C plug style to connect the cables to the PSU, it had similar to a microphone plug; 3 pronged in a triangle fashion with a locking collar that you had to screw down. It was a VERY well manufactured piece and there was no issue with feeling the connection wasn't solid.

    Anyways glad to see a PSU review again. I got burned a year ago when I jumped the gun on an early recommendation for a PSU you were just starting to test and have been unhappy with its rails and overall quality (Tuniq Potency). Penny-wise, pound-foolish and all. I've been trying to justify upgrading to a better PSU and I think the time has just about come. I just hate the though of doing the cable management again...definitely going to be getting a modular PSU again (previous to the Tuniq I had an Antec NeoPower 480w which was awesome in its day).

    the best i can find these for is ~$240 for the 600watt, and ~$275 for the 700watt.

    so far, i can't find the 500, or any of the "pro" series.
    i guess they figure somebody spending that much on a psu is only going for the top.

    Yes, unfortunately Enermax USA won't take all of these six units. Reply
  • strikeback03 - Wednesday, January 20, 2010 - link

    So does that mean we won't see the 500W units?

    Well, at least there is still Seasonic.

    I heard they will be bringing the Pro87+ 500 & 600W. Reply

    i have seen these come down in price in akihibara already.
    in the right places, they are ~$200 for the 600w, and ~$230 for the 700w.
    i have also seen the "pro" models around for about $50 less for each.

    Pedant ON. Its not a square shape its an octagon, to match the octagonal hole for the fan and (most) of the metalwork forming the fan guard. Pedant OFF. Reply
