Arrow Enermax Revolution SFX 650W Review

Quote:
Last week, we looked at something big and expensive. This week, we're looking at something tiny and promising, the Enermax Revolution SFX 650W unit. This form factor, though better supplied now than it was a few years ago, is still light on options when it comes to well performing power supplies. Let's see if Enermax' entry to the battle got things right.

All hail the Q-Boom. The greatest, most innovative, revolutionary implementation to any power supply ever.

The Bad:
  • Not enough screws, so you're screwed

Strange, my sample did have all the screws^^

Moreover Qboom is limited to 200 units, so you better not trust on getting one

Which is why he said "even without the Q-Boom I'm still feeling a 10."

I would not have penalized them for ribbons in such short cables, so I would have gone with a 9.5 on Functionality.

I would penalize for 2 PCI-E connectors though. Unit at this power level should have 4 and it is possible to do SLI/CF in certain SFF cases.
