Enermax is a brand whose strong product is their power supplies, especially when it comes to the high-end spectrum. Their Platimax and MAXREVO units are some of the best out there. But these units are not cheap in terms of cost. Enermax knows not everyone has a ton of cash to throw at a new power supply so they have created the Triathlor series of power supplies. There are actually the Triathlor and Triathlor FC units. The Triathlor units are lower wattage and non-modular and the Triathlor FC units are higher wattage and are modular. Today we are checking out the Triathlor FC 550W unit which is 80PLUS Bronze certified and offers quiet operation.

Not that long ago we took a look at our first power supply from Fractal Design, the Newton R3 600W.

We mainly know Fractal Design for their cases, but did you know they make power supplies as well? Over the past couple of years the really high-end power supplies all had 80PLUS Gold certifications, but now we are seeing 80PLUS Platinum certifications. 80PLUS Platinum certification means that the power supply runs 92% efficient at 50% load and 89% efficient at 100% load. Today we are taking a look at Fractal Design’s Newton R3 600W Power Supply that not only has the 80PLUS Platinum certification it features a semi-modular design, single 12V rail, semi-passive fan, and is CrossFireX certified.
