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.

    Very nice to see a new PSU review on anandtech, I was worried you guys had forgotten what made you popular- reviews of real products not just blog after blog. I have a suggestion, if I may. The Antec Neo Eco 400W power supply. I actually just bought one, it seems like a good deal. It has a 30 amp 12V rail (360W) a 120mm fan, and is 80plus certified. Not sure who the OEM for it is, I'm thinking Seasonic. But you guys should check it out. Great review by the way. Reply

    good luck finding a replacement for that gold monstrosity. so that make this crap a n buy for me. You see, i like to change the fans on my psu ( better fans) in order to control them myself. Reply

    Might still use 140mm mounting holes, and just be a 139mm fan to avoid a stupid patent. Reply

    Hard to think you'll need a fan better than that - 50 Celsius for the vented air and almost totally silent even at maximum load?
    I have an old Seasonic 350W (12 cm fan) which I felt was totally silent in typical operation (closed case, computer under desk), and after about four years it still is totally silent.

    is not hard to think _ for me_ the big fan dsnt follow a standard, it has no other use for me, if a buy 4 120 fans i could give the multiple uses/ ( psu replacement fan, case fan, cpu fan, low speed fan, high speed fan, etc, - btw cases with big fans are terrible) one huge big ass fan? no other user ¡ difficult to find = no thanks.

    Why use such a cumbersome term as Cable Management (which refers primarily to the neatness of cable routing) when 'Modular' is much more apt (and specifically referred to in the product name)?

    Nobody makes 'cable management' PSUs, but quite a few companies make 'modular PSUs'.

    More comparisons (especially in the benchmarking) to competing products (rather than just the other two in the series) would really be nice. I actually have come to expect it at Anandtech.

    To me, this came off as a bit more of a fluff piece. Not a disguised commercial but more like something I'd find at most other hardware sites.

    I thought this was a good article on specific hardware. But then again I am not the uber geek with no life like some seem to be around here.... Reply

    Geez, and I thought the X-Series was overpriced. Sure, these Enermax PSU's are efficient, but certainly not $50.00 more efficient than say, an Corsair 750HX. If they come with a $30.00 MIR then they might be worth the money, but otherwise I'll pass. Reply
