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.
In Win has been making headlines at Computex with their Tou and KingSize H-Frame cases, but they also had a new power supply on display that actually matches up pretty well with those cases. The Serenity Series power supply has a chrome brushed steel finish and offers a semi-modular design.

Here at ThinkComputers we mainly know Enermax for their cooling solutions, but they also make power supplies. At CeBIT they are showing off a 650W 80PLUS Platinum power supply.

We mainly know Fractal Design for their cases, but did you know they make power supplies as well?
