The Enermax Modu 87+ Gold 900W is a rock solid power supply that delivers very good features and performance and does it in style as well. Enermax has improved upon the previous design in several areas, including aesthetics, length of cables.

From a functional standpoint, the Modu 87+ Gold has excellent voltage regulation and very good efficiency. It also runs very quiet at lower and heavily loaded states. As for heat, the unit stayed under control and moderately warm to the touch even when being tested under full load for an extended period of time.

A wide assortment of sleeved modular cables that support SLI/CrossFire setups and an easy-to-use connection design are also included, and it’s great to see that Enermax has finally lengthened the cables to about 23", making cable management in full tower cases a breeze.

There are very few 900W power supplies on the market that are 80+ Gold certified, so this unit doesn’t have much for competition.  And the ones we have seen don’t quite measure up in terms of quality overall.  We’ve seen that Enermax offers some of the best units on the market, but they don’t come cheap; in fact, they’re often downright expensive.  But you do get what you pay for, we’ll give them that.  And a very good power supply should be seen as an investment, so for the extra $50 or so, for example, it can last years and be seen as an excellent return for what you get.  And we cannot complain about that. Expected to hit retail channels at a price of $270, this power supply won’t be for everyone but you won’t be disappointed if you decide to purchase one.

The Enermax Modu 87+ Gold 900W is a solid performer, sports a sleek aesthetic, is modular and future-proof, brings top quality to consumers, and is 80+ Gold certified.  The price tag isn’t cheap but then again, top quality never comes cheap anyways.  This unit gets our  enthusiastic recommendation.
