Enermax MaxTytan 800W, RevoBron 700W Power Supply Review

Introduction Power Supplies are one of the most critical components in computer systems, which is why it’s so sad that they’re also one of the most easily overlooked components. Stable and clean power should be a top priority for any high end system, yet builders and companies alike tend to skimp on this critical element of PC building. Needless to say here at PureOC, we highly recommend finding a good quality PSU unit for your rig. However, performance isn’t the only thing that’s skimped on in this segment. Aesthetics have also been woefully overlooked in power supplies as well. Sure, we have fancy RGB fans on certain units, but when most cases have bottom mounted designs, it kind of defeats the purpose of making the PSU fan look shiny. In fact, the number one thing you’ll see from a PSU in most builds today is the cable connections on the motherboard and graphics cards. If that’s the case, making nicer connection cables would seem like a pretty important feature to have in modern PSUs. Enermax seems to be thinking in these directions so let’s begin looking at the units once we’ve taken a quick look at the company themselves. Lepatek Corporation an ENERMAX Company is an exclusive authorized supplier for ENERMAX and LEPA brand products for both North America and South America. Lepatek Corporation strives to provide only high quality products within the Computer Hardware & Components and Consumer Electronics market. Both m...

Enermax GraceMesh ECA3520 Unboxing

If you’ve followed my Youtube channel, you may have heard me mention that I’m not a huge fan of unboxings. I guess it’s nice to see a product coming out of the box, but it feels like I’m trying to live vicariously through somebody else’s experience without the satisfaction of owning my own product. Give me information! Still, when a company like Enermax offers the opportunity to do one, it’s hard to say no with how great their other products have been. The GraceMesh feels like a very solid budget oriented case and you can check out the video below to see the full (albeit abridged) details! http://a.co/fXLiGyf



Enermax NEOChanger RGB Reservoir and Pump Combo Review

Introduction This was it. The moment I’ve been waiting for from the first day I joined PureOC. I took the res out of the box, grabbed a fitting, and gently screwed it into the port…..OH MY GOODNESS! That was my last moment to turn back and be a normal computer user. From this moment on, I can only imagine making even better custom cooling loops in the future. The look of a new XSPC fitting inside the Enermax NEOChanger brought new levels of joy that reminded me of my very first PC build, then I bent the edges of the next fitting by screwing it in a bit too tightly and knew that the experience was just like my first computer build. Enough about me, though. Let’s get into this beautiful looking piece of hardware from Enermax. I think their designers have pointedly found pieces of hardware that don’t represent RGB LED enough and decided to fix the problem themselves. I absolutely love them for this! Here at PureOC, it started with the NEOllusion and continues today with the NEOChanger. How will Enermax fair in the custom cooling arena? We’ll find out right after a brief word about the company. Lepatek Corporation an ENERMAX Company is an exclusive authorized supplier for ENERMAX and LEPA brand products for both North America and South America.

Enermax and GeIL Deserve Computex Shout-outs: PSU and M.2 SSD Announcements

Companies that absolutely do not deserve to float under the radar seem to float under the radar sometimes. It could just be a matter of me following the wrong things. Regardless, I wanted to point out some really cool announcements that Enermax and GeIL had during the Computex event. Enermax rolled out some seriously excellent looking PSUs and GeIL had a mention of a new M.2 SSD that I absolutely want to know more about. Enermax looks to be heavily expanding their PSU lineup, but I wanted to highlight the MaxTytan series here. These guys are rated at an 80 Plus Titanium efficiency which is pretty insane. They also have the Dust Free Rotation technology that reverses the fan for a brief period to help keep it clean. There’s quite a few features, but the one that really stood out was the real time, built-in wattage meter that tells you how much power you’re consuming. Whether you’re trying to monitor usage for your bills, or as a reviewer, it sound like a pretty handy feature. I’m assuming GeIL had the pictures of their new Shuttle series taken at Computex, but what’s interesting is the fact that they’re including a pretty hefty aluminum heatsink on the chips of their new M.2 NVMe SSD. The GeIL Shuttle speeds aren’t the fastest, but are certainly fast enough to make a huge improvement over traditional SATA SSDs. There’s more details in articles linked below, but I’m always excited to see what Enermax and GeIL have in sto...



Enermax’s Awesome RGB Reservoirs are Here! The NEOChanger

I was completely taken off guard by Enermax/Lepa when I visited their booth in January. They had some great looking products, yet it felt like there wasn’t enough people taking notice. My feelings on the subject could be completely off, but it isn’t going to stop me from showing off more releases I think many builders would be interested in. It looks like the Enermax NEOChanger Reservoir and Pump kits are about to release and while I may be one of the few writers that gets excited about everything RGB, I’m really excited about the lighting on these units. There’s much more going on with these units than a simple RGB lighting effect. For starters, the RGB cycles can be controlled separately by an included remote if you need stand alone lighting control. However, the lighting can also sync with your motherboard’s if it has a 4-pin RGB header. The best part though is the flow rating on that pump. At 900 L/h, these seem like extremely capable units for a custom loop with multiple components. Top it all off with an RPM meter and it looks like a great offering from Enermax. Performance is a primary concern for many of us, but I still feel like RGB lighting is a great addition to any great part. Surely I’m not the only one who ends up staring at color cycle effects for minutes at at a time! Check out the rest of the press release below for more details and specifications. Stay tuned at PureOC because we plan to have a more detailed look at the ...



Enermax Saberay and Equilence are Two Great Looking Cases

Enermax Global just blew up Twitter with a bunch of posts about their new cases. I knew about the Saberay from CES, but the Equilence is a new one for me. Both cases come with a gorgeous glass side panel, but there is so much more going on with these that I feel like you guys should be keeping an eye on them. The biggest thing both cases have is lots of options for liquid cooling. The Equilence seems like a smaller version of the Saberay, but it still packs support for up to 280 and 360mm radiators. Unfortunately, the mid tower design is only factory equipped with a red LED color scheme. That’s not a bad thing, but I am pro RGB. The Saberay on the other hand, does have an awesome RGB lighting scheme that not only covers the fans, but also two LED strips that run along the sides of the front and top panels. I do love how each fan has the circular 12 LED design which looks much nicer than the typical 4 LED fan. Both cases look like they have phenomenal support for liquid cooling or airflow, but the best feature is the design on that side panel latch. In case you forgot how easy it is to take off, I planted a GIF below for you to see. Check out the galleries below for some closer looks at the cases. I’m glad I found some extra images of the Saberay and Equilence, since we haven’t had a closer look quite like this for these guys. There’s also a couple of links to some webpages that have some more detailed information. We’ll try to keep an eye on t...



Enermax Revolution DUO 700W Gold PSU Review

Introduction 2017 is officially the year that I broaden my review horizons and begin diving into things I’ve never delve into before. Am I freaked out a bit? You bet I am! Am I excited about it though? Absolutely!!! So it begins with a new PSU review, courtesy of Enermax. I feel like Enermax was seriously overlooked at CES this year, but that’s to the shame of the hardware community. They easily had one of the best, if not the best, case on display and their innovation in the realm of PSUs, tower coolers and liquid cooling deserve so much more attention than what I feel they’ve received. Today, we’re going to try and change that by looking at the Revolution Duo PSU that was recently released. We’ll begin diving into the details, but first let’s look at a company statement from Enermax and extend our thanks for providing this sample for review.   Enermax Technology Corporation is a world-renowned PC Power Supply Unit manufacturer.

October News Round Up: SWIFTECH Apogee XL2, GAMER STORM Genome II, GTX 1050 Ti and More!

Welcome back to our second roundup of hardware news that happened this month. The CPU and GPU side of things may have slowed down a tad, but there’s a lot that happened with cooling and cases. Let’s dive in and get excited about what’s coming down the road! CPUs Let’s start out with an update on Kaby Lake. Geekbench came out with some impressive results and the story made it look like INTEL has merely been holding back for a while. Recently however, an i5-7500K sample was benchmarked and only showed about a 10% improvement over Skylake. This is actually pretty disappointing, especially considering that the 4970K is still a top tier single thread performer. On the plus side, it looks like all 100 series motherboards will be able to support Kaby Lake with a BIOS update, but I doubt many will see the need to upgrade from Skylake in such a short time table. At the time being, ASUS is the only brand this is confirmed for, but that’s a good indication that other manufactures will follow suit. We’re still a ways out from release so we can almost expect performance to fluctuate a bit more until closer to release. http://wccftech.com/intel-core-i5-7600k-kaby-lake-cpu-benchmarks/ http://wccftech.com/kaby-lake-support-asus-100-series-motherboards-confirmed/ GPUs The big news this month was the release of the GTX 1050 Ti and the 1050. Each GPU offers a great budget option for 1080p gaming while being extremely energy efficient. Rather than reinvent ...

Enermax DigiFanless 550W

Introduction This will be the first fanless PSU unit I have reviewed. Digital PSUs are becoming more popular due to the control you have over the PSU with software and no noise. Enermax lately has been changing some things around for the better. They have been redesigning most of their products with better features, such as longer modular cables, better cable quality, and better case design. They have also made huge strides in their fan department. I know this because I have tested previous products and have seen the changes over time. Let’s see if this PSU with its unique marketing as a digital fanless PSU can make this product stand out among its major competitors. The specifications & features are as follows: Brand Name Enermax Item model number EDF550AWN Item Weight 8.1 pounds Product Dimensions 13.5 x 4.5 x 10 inches Item Dimensions L x W x H 13.5 x 4.5 x 10 inches Color Black Power Source corded-electric
