The ENERMAX Platimax EPM500AWT power supply has a maximum wattage output of 500W. This is a mid-range capacity, and should be fine as long as it is part of an equally mid-range system build. Always make sure that a purchased PSU is capable of powering your system. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.
The ENERMAX Platimax EPM500AWT has an 80 Plus rating of Platinum. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 89%, 92%, and 90% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Platinum is the best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the ENERMAX Platimax EPM500AWT is exceptionally efficient and comes very highly recommended. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 89.86%, 92.31%, and 90.65%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.
The dimensions of the ENERMAX Platimax EPM500AWT (LxWxH) are 16cm x 15cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The ENERMAX Platimax EPM500AWT is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.
The ENERMAX Platimax EPM500AWT is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
