Enermax Galaxy EGA1000EWL 1000W Power Supply

Cables:

Starting with the hard wired cables, we see that there are only a few to discuss. You have the standard 24-pin motherboard connection, you can not use this on a motherboard that only uses 20-pins, at least not without an adapter. Next you have one rail of 4-pin Molex and one rail of SATA connections, each with three plugs. There are also two red PCI-E connections, with one of them being marked as Master. Finally you have two motherboard auxillary power connections. These cables are probably the biggest disappointment yet. The cables are wrapped nicely. However, the wrapping stops at the first connection! Please continue the wrapping between each of the connections.

Here you can see a close-up of the two motherboard auxillary power connections. One is split so you have two 4-pin connections, which I assume is the main rail, as it also include a fan lead. The second is a native 8-pin power connection. Each of these rails are clearly marked for CPU use only.

A smaller box included with the power supply contains the accessories and the modular cables. In addition to the modular cables, the accessories include a very heavy duty AC cord, power supply manual and a nylon bag to hold the modular cables. In the below right image you can how the modular cables are packed once I removed the cable bag and the manual. At the top you have modular PCI-E, next is the SATA cables, and finally you have the Molex cables.

The images below give you a look at the modular cables, and is the source of disappointment. The cables are nicely wrapped, but the wrapping stops at the first connector! If you were to use all these cables you could power an additional 15 SATA, and 13 IDE devices! The second picture shows one cable of the three major cables groups, SATA, Molex, and Molex with Floppy. The SATA connections are rotated to aid in cable routing. The Molex plugs are the ez-release style of plug.

Just so you can not plug the cables into the power supply incorrectly, Enermax has removed one of the pins, in addition to making each plug a different shape! No confusing where to plug in the cable!
