  • 31.03.15 | MAXPRO: The Quietest Long Runner

    Enermax enjoys a lot of trust amongst hardware enthusiasts around the world. The power supplies of the premium manufacturer are designed for a durable and stable operation. That way, they most often survive more than one PC upgrade or build. With the new MAXPRO PSU series, Enermax now introduces the next long runner generation. Four models with 400, 500, 600 and 700 watts cover the system requirements of most PC configurations. Due to an adequate number of 8-pin PCI-Express connectors and a massive 12V rail, MAXPRO ensures a stable power supply of performance-capable gaming PCs. The PSU measures just 14cm in depth, so that it can be a perfect choice for small form factor chassis as well.

    Ultra-quiet Operation
    Main focus of the new power supply concept has been the noise generation. Enermax engineers improved not only the fan control, but apply a completely new technological basis: Instead of a cheaper ball bearing fan, the manufacturer has integrated a 12cm fan that is based on the smooth running, patented Twister Bearing from Enermax. With just 500 RPM, the new MAXPRO power supplies operate virtually silent at standard loads (up to 50%). At very high loading (more than 90%), the MAXPRO fan finally exceeds 1,500 RPM, but does not generate annoying mechanical side noises thanks to the Twister bearing technology.

    High Efficiency at Standard Loads
    The MAXPRO series has been specially developed for the European market. Therefore, it is designed for the usage in power grids of 200 to 240VAC only. At a usual system load (20-50%), the power supply achieves an average efficiency of excellent 87%. It complies not only with the latest European eco-design regulations, but also supports the international energy-saving standard 80 PLUS® 230V EU. Enermax applies high-quality and performance-capable components which ensure a 24/7 non-stop operation at 40°C. In case of malfunctions or defects, the advanced SafeGuard protects the PSU and the system components against over-current, over-voltage, over-power, short circuit as well as sudden power surges (OCP, OVP, OPP, SCP & SIP). A prolonged 3-year manufacturer warranty completes the new offer from Enermax.

  • 12.03.15 | 25 Years of Know-How in One Power Supply

    Since 1990, ENERMAX has always been a pioneer in PSU industry. ENERMAX power supplies are synonyms of quality & performance. On the occasion of the company's 25th anniversary, the manufacturer now introduces a new masterpiece of technology: The Digifanless 550W is the first digital and fanless power supply from ENERMAX. Based on a performance-capable passive cooling system, Digifanless allows for a completely silent PC operation (0db(A)). With a forward-looking PSU topology and durable, high-quality components, the fanless power supply achieves a peak efficiency of 93% (80 PLUS® Platinum certified) and keeps the output voltages rock stable for maximum system performance. Digifanless is equipped with a digital interface to read out and control the most essential power values via the brand-new ZDPMS software (eg. voltage, current, efficiency or temperature). Last, but not least, the new flagship provides a flexible full-modular cable management with precious, individually sleeved wires.

    The World's 1st Digital Fanless Power Supply
    The Digifanless 550W sets a new milestone in PSU history: It is the world's first digital fanless power supply. Japanese electrolytic 105°C capacitors, heavy-duty MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors) and a high-density array of aluminium heatsinks ensure a performance-capable passive cooling and a continuous 24h full power output at 40°C ambient temperature. ENERMAX further applies the so-called "Copper Bridge Array" technology which significantly reduces the electrical resistance, improves the voltage regulation and maximizes the efficiency. That way, Digifanless reaches the international energy-saving standard 80 PLUS® Platinum with up to 93% efficiency and complies with the latest EU eco-design regulation ErP Lot 6 2013. The DC-to-DC circuit with Zero-Load Design ensures the full compatibility with the latest C6/C7 power saving modes of Intel and AMD CPUs, and provides a most stable performance even at extreme dynamic loads.

    New Digital User Interface for Easy Power Monitoring
    Together with the new Digifanless power supply, ENERMAX premieres the "Zero Delay Power Monitor System" (ZDPMS) for most comfortable and precise PSU monitoring and control. The easy and instinct user interface keeps track of the system power consumption, the efficiency, temperature, output voltage and output current. If systems have to fulfill certain 12V load requirements, testers or system engineers have the possibility to fine tune the 12V output voltage within a range of +/- 3%, and switch between 12V single or dual rail mode. In case of critical temperatures, overvoltage or overcurrent, the ZDPMS software displays warning messages, so that the user can take precautionary measures to avoid a system shut down. The OVP and OCP warning point can be set individually. Finally, ZDPMS comes with an energy consumption calculator. Just input your regional average electricity fare and CO2 footprint profile, and the software will estimate your system's electricity costs and CO2 emission factor.

    Full-Modular Design with Precious Cable Sleeving
    Digifanless
    comes with a full-modular and flexible cable management which simplifies the system installation. Following numerous requests from ENERMAX customers, modders and aesthetes, each wire is sleeved individually which creates an outstanding and precious appearance. No doubt, the new Digifanless 550W is a masterpiece of ENERMAX engineering providing a silent, energy-efficient and durable power supply in every situation.

    European Sales Starts in Week 13

  • 08.01.15 | Liqmax II: A New Ice Age

    With Liqmax II, Enermax introduces two new entry-level models for an effective CPU liquid cooling. Apart from Liqmax II 120, the space-saving cooling solution with compact 120mm radiator, the manufacturer provides a version with dual 240mm radiator as well. Liqmax II 240 is designed for high-performance workstations and gaming rigs with heavy-duty multi-core CPUs. Enermax engineers have optimized the concept of Liqmax series in several aspects.

    New Design & Proved Technology
    Optically, the Liqmax II series is almost unrecognizable: The black-grey colour scheme with the white LED light at the top of the water block creates a plain and elegant appearance which is suitable for most system configurations. Flexible rubber tubes simplify the installation and the dense aluminium radiator allows for an excellent heat dissipation. Like all liquid coolers from Enermax, also the cold plate of Liqmax II is based on the patented Shunt Channel Technology: A wide channel inside the micro-fin structure ensures a quick and efficient cooling of heavy loaded and overclocked processors.

    Higher Pressure with Double Batwing Fan Blades
    Another novelty of the Liqmax II coolers are the "Double Batwing Blade" fans. The refined shape of the blades generates a higher static pressure at lower fan speed. At 1200 RPM, the Double Batwing Blade fan achieves a static pressure of 1.3mm-H2O while the Cluster Advance (UCCLA12P) with the classic Batwing blades does not exceed 1.037mm-H2O at 1200 RPM. It means the new blade design provides more than 20% more performance and a significantly lower noise generation.

    Flexible Fan Speed Control
    The Liqmax II models come with two Double Batwing Blade fans. The speed can be controlled automatically via the 4P PWM interface of the mainboard. Apart from that, the intelligent APS ("Adjustable Peak Speed") function allows for an individual RPM setting corresponding to the particular system requirements. Enermax integrated an easy accessible switch at the fan frame which enables three speed modes: Silent (500 – 1200 RPM) Performance (500 – 1600 RPM) and Overclock (500 – 2000 RPM) mode. Rubber pads avoid the fan from vibrations and annoying side noises.

    Full Support of most Current Processors
    Liqmax II
    supports all latest Intel® and AMD® platforms (Intel® LGA 775/1150/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD® AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+).

    Prices & Availability
    The two models of the Liqmax II series are now available on sale. MSRP incl. VAT: 59.90 Euro for the Liqmax II 120 (ELC-LMR120S-BS) and 77.90 Euro for the Liqmax II 240 (ELC-LMR240-BS).

  • 18.11.14 | Twister Storm hits Europe with 3,500 RPM

    With Twister Storm, Enermax extends the latest series of high-performance fans for professional applications. After the recently launched Twister Pressure, the ultra high-speed 12cm fan is already the second model of the new product section. Twister Storm achieves a peak speed of 3,500 RPM generating an air flow rate of up to 262.55m3/h. It is therefore one of the strongest case fans on the market, and the most powerful 12cm fan worldwide that is based on a barometric-magnetic bearing. Twister Storm has been designed for extreme system environments such as for servers, industrial applications or heavy-duty mining and gaming rigs. To guarantee maximum durability, Enermax engineers improved the structure of the Twister Technology and extended the lifetime of the patented bearing to 160,000 hours.

    Special Storm Flow Blades & Sturdy Structure

    Another innovation of Enermax engineers are the so-called Storm Flow Blades. Their special shape provides the perfect angle for an efficient air intake and a high-pressure air outlet. The manufacturer applies high-quality materials and relies on a sturdy construction, so that the fan does not start vibrating at high RPM. Additionally, Enermax delivers the fan with four anti-vibration rubber mounting screws. Another smart function of the Twister Storm: To avoid a loss in performance because of dust, the patented Twister bearing provides a useful feature called Click Mechanism: Users can detach the blades by pushing them from the back side out of the frame and clean them thoroughly.

    SSC Function for Optimizing the Cooling Performance
    Enermax equips the Twister Storm with the latest Shift Speed Control (SSC). This function is not just a simple RPM regulation by voltage variation: It enables three different peak speed modes: Performance (1,500 RPM), Overclock (2,500 RPM) and Turbo Mode (3,500 RPM). Within the particular mode, users can still individually control the fan speed by lowering down the voltage, so that Twister Storm grants much more flexibility than an ordinary case fan with fixed 12V speed.

    Availability and Price
    The Twister Storm 12cm fan from Enermax is now available on sale and costs 14.99 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT).
