    Arrow Enermax Revolution 85+ Review Up

    A couple weeks ago, I took a look at a new line from Enermax, the Liberty Eco series. Today, I've set my sights on something much bigger and badder, the Revolution 85+ 1050W. This is a unit promising top notch performance at 80 Plus Silver levels of efficiency. You're going to not want to miss this one.
    Thought I'd be nice and put this up early

    Under the Safeguard bullet point, shouldn't AC UVP & DC UVP be translated to AC Undervoltage protection & DC Undervoltage protection?

    Well this ought to make some people happy

    Your efficiency numbers were lower than some of the other sites have found, but you voltage regulation was a little better than some other sites have found

    Lower efficiency due to 3.3V/5V crossloading. That's why I was waiting on those electronic loads... that still aren't here

    Anytime you have someone hand soldering in these around such huge traces, it's going to look bad. That part I could excuse. Where I had to take the half point off was in the blobs on the SMD components, and the sloppy workmanship on the PWM controller board.

    That soldering is AWFUL...overheated solder points, huge blobs, quick fixes, really id expect much better as ive seen better soldering on much cheaper units.

    I see they also took a page out of BFG's book and did reverse logos on the sides of the PSU so that the Revolution 85+ logo will be right side up facing the case opening no matter whether it is bottom mounted and fan pointing up or top mounted and fan pointing down.

    As for Soldering....come on Seasonic and Enermax....don't let your high end units have sloppy build quality....look at Impervio's IS Quasar built units and Delta's Antec Signature...that is the build quality you guys should be emulating.
