Enermax Revolution87+ 850W PSU Review

Externally, the Revolution87+ certainly stands out of the crowd. The chassis is sprayed with a textured grey paint, except from the area around the fan which has been painted gold, while the smoked blades of the fan are semi-transparent. While the chassis is about 1.5cm deeper than a standard ATX design, it is not too deep and should not cause any issues unless if installed inside the tightest of ATX-compliant cases.

Unlike most companies which are using stickers, Enermax actually painted the series logo on the sides of the Revolution87+ with the same golden paint used around the fan's frame.

The sticker with the unit's electrical specifications and quality control checks can be found at the top side of the Revolution87+, where it will be visible only if the unit is installed inside a case with the PSU compartment located towards the bottom.

The connectors for the modular cables can be found at the front side of the unit. A sticker forms a comprehensive gold/black legend below the connectors, indicating exactly at which rail each and every cable is connected to. The 24-pin ATX connector, an 8-pin CPU 12V connector, a 4+4 pin CPU 12V connector and two 6+2-pin PCIe connectors are hardwired to the unit, while two more 6+2-pin PCIe connectors, twelve SATA and eight Molex connectors are available through the modular cables.

The rear side of the Revolution87+ is perforated, for the warm air generated by the use of the power supply to escape to the exterior of the case. A sticker with the company logo can be seen above the A/C cable receptacle and the standard on/off switch. The notches of the "Cordguard" latch can be seen below the cable receptacle, allowing the use of the supplied clip in order to secure the cable on the power supply.
