Features: Smart fan: After PC shuts down, cooling fans keep running for at least 2 minutes to effectively cool down parts and hardwares inside PSU and PC cases. Thus, ensure longer product life time of power supply and hardwares inside PC case. Separate 12V rails: Independent 12V rails supply to MB/CPU and drives in order to provide stable and clean current to noise-sensitive devices, such as: CPU, add-on cards.Meet UL 240VA safety requirements. ATX 12V V1.3 compatible: Support latest P4 and Athlon 64 platforms. For P4 platforms use 865 (Springdale) & 875 (Canterwood) chipsets and even new P4 Prescott and AMD Athlon 64 or later CPU. S-ATA connectors: Connect your system to the faster S-ATA interface for better performance. Manual and automatic fan speed control: 8cm & 9cm fans automatically controlled by thermostat plus rheostat control over 8cm fan. Enable users to keep the balance between cooling effect and acoustic noise. Extra Power connector: Extra 4-pin power connector provides high-end graphic card with stable current. Reliability: OCP, UVP, OVP, OLP, OTP, and SCP circuits ensure system well-guarded from any dangers. Maximize safety for your hardware and valuable data. Copper-shielding: Effectively reduces electro-magnetic interference that might affect MB and CPU from normal operation. (Valid for models with 370W and higher total power). Dual Fan: The best cooling method for PC system, and is strongly suggested by AMD. Silence: Acoustic noise is successfully reduced with two fans giving more airflow in less rpm and smooth mechanical design of fan guards. FM & FC functions: RPM signal of 8cm exhaust fan is provided; EG xxx AX-VE SFCA/FCA models allow MB to on/off control 8cm exhaust fan.

The power supply is ready for new...
Strengths: Quiet, cooling one minute more after shutdown, ready for SATA harddrives
Weakness: Rather costly
The power supply is ready for new motherboard of 24 pins connector, and has adaptor for backward compatible to the old 20 pins connector motherboard. My older power supply which came with the case is also from Enermax, but it was broken after quite a few years, I think I might overdrive the 350W limit, this 470W one looks powerful and reliable, and I hope it will be.

This is a great power supply. It...
Strengths: Amazing! Very Quiet! Abundant amperage on all three rails. (16a +12V-a; 15a +12V-b; 40a +5v; 34a +3.3v)
Weakness: None...but do not get this for a newer system with a 24Pin MB and PCI express.
This is a great power supply. It truly is a top of the line power supply, but it is technology for current systems or upgraded systems. If you are planning to upgrade your computer to a newer motherboard that comes with 24pins, this unit is not such a great buy. Although I read somewhere that it is possible to use a 20 pin power supply to power a 24pin motherboard, I do not know its true...

This is a great power supply. It truly is a top of the line power supply, but it is technology for current systems or upgraded systems. If you are planning to upgrade your computer to a newer motherboard that comes with 24pins, this unit is not such a great buy. Although I read somewhere that it is possible to use a 20 pin power supply to power a 24pin motherboard, I do not know its true feasibility, or its reliability! For the following system:
Intel D875PBZ MB
ATI All-In-Wonder 9800pro
4 WD Hard Drives
Plextor 712 DVD burner
Soundblaster Live! Value
HPT Raid Controller
3 120mm Fans controlled by rheobus
I orginally used an Antec 350 rated for 330watts. The antec PS actually ran my system quite well, but I feared that I might have been exceeding its specifications since the unit sounded like it was "straining/groaning" during moderate to high loads. Rather than risk my entire system over a power supply, I decided to get a new one. An added bonus is that the Enermax 475 is "whisper" quiet now even at full load (~2000rpm fan setting on high!). The antec unit would always spin up to become the loudest component in my system. In the end, the decision for a new PS came down to this unit and another Antec Power Supply - the Antec Neopower. The Neopower is more future proof and supports the new 24P motherboards as well as the PCIx connector. It is also more expensive! It also had modular cables which didn't really matter for me since I would have ended up using all of them to power up all my system components. Since I will probably be expanding this system rather than replacing the components of this system, the Enermax 475 was a great buy for me. It actually exceeds the top-ranked Neopower on the 3.3v and 5v rails. Now I don't have to worry about whether I have enough power - even if I decide to add some more components....maybe some SATA drives....haha...

I really wanted a good power...
Strengths: Ample supply of power, dual fan, copper shielding, smart fan
Weakness: fan that blows out is too weak. Wires were abit stiff
I really wanted a good power supply after having cheap power supplies that comes with the case. This is truly what your money pays for: ample power, smart fan control, an dual fan. The power supply is fairly quiet and I can't really hear the noise at all. I do have one complain though. The 8cm outtake fan is way to weak, and even when I turned to max, I can hardly feel much air coming out....

This PSU has been a pleasure to...
Strengths: solid rails, dual +12V rails, high efficiency, low noise, powerful current, fully adjustible
This PSU has been a pleasure to work with. It's got rock-solid, powerful rails and has two +12V rails. It provides enough current over the +5V and +12V rails to power anything you throw at it. Even at the highest fan speed it's not too noisy, and it's fully adjustible. I would highly recommend this PSU to anyone building a new rig, and I will be purchasing my next PSU from ENERMAX.

Strengths: Super quiet.
This power supply provides ample cooling for my case. Fans are quiet too and keep going for a minute or so after the PC is turned off...most likely to cool interior of PC.
