Are you building a huge machine and require a power supply to match? Enermax has got you covered. Their Galaxy 850W fully supports Quad SLI, Quad core CPU, mass amounts of hard drives and your other hardware. It passed with flying colors in our stress tests, so read on.
Once we have the power supply out of the box, we can get a better look at just what this is all about. The first thing that I noticed was the size of the Galaxy. The power supply is a lot longer than the power supplies you and I have become accustomed to. The Galaxy is 155mm (5.9 in) x 86mm (3.38 in) x 220mm (8.6 in). The thing is long, very long.
Here, on the back of the power supply, we see the 80mm exhaust fan, the power plug, the on/off switch and a red button. This is the power guard reset button.
On the side of the power supply we have a large Galaxy logo and a huge 120mm fan that will keep the PSU cool.
At the back of the power supply, we see the modular connectors. The ones on the left, that are red, are designed for your PCI-E cables should you need more than the 2 that are all ready native to the Galaxy. The 6 black connectors are to power your hard drives, optical drives and any other peripheral that you can think of.
Now that we have seen the power supply, let’s take a look at what it has to offer.
There you have the factory specs. Let’s see how she holds up.
