Enermax Galaxy EGA1000EWL 1000W Power Supply
August 29, 2006

Accessories:

In addition to the modular cables, you also receive a brief, but detailed, manual, and a modular cable bag. The below right image shows all of the modular cables placed inside the bag. This is nice, however I like the box better.

A couple other accessories were tossed in as well. You have the common screws used to mount the power supply, some plugs to cover the unused modular ports, Enermax Power Inside sticker, and an Enermax neck lariat.

Installation:

Prior to installing this beast, I wanted to give you an idea of the massive size of it. In the below left image you can see the Enermax Galaxy next to a standard sized Ultra X2 550W modular power supply. In the below right image you can see the recently reviewed CoolMax CTG-1000, another 1,000W power supply, between the Ultra and Enermax power supplies. The Galaxy is easily bigger than the others!

Finally, prior to performing testing you can see the Enermax Galaxy installed in my Thermaltake Shark, which is a full tower case. The massive size of this power supply could be a problem for many cases that don't have a bit of extra depth to them. Most full sized tower cases should be OK, but I wouldn't suggest this for use in a mid-tower case (or anything smaller).

Powering the system on for the first time, I did get a scare! When you turn on the power supply there is a little crackle. Reading the Enermax manual they address this, and state:

"The compliance with on going energy saving regulations, such as USA low power requirement, the PSU will turn off the PFC function in standby mode to increase the standby efficiency up to 50-70%. This design will emit a short "tsst" sound when you power up the system. It is a normal phenomenon and has no negative effect to the whole system".
