Enermax launches the world's most compact 1200W PSU

A 1200W PSU that is only 160mm deep.



Read more on Enermax' D.F. series of PSUs.

I'm struggling to think of a scenario where you would need this much power in a case that actually requires a small PSU like this

I'd say whenever the bottom of a case has a HDD cage in it like my 400C. I had to remove it and use 2.5 drives because my RM850 didn't leave enough space to hide the cables.

Hmm not sure if I like the fact, that the fan is spinning the other way round. Not only will that most likely be worse in terms of cooling, but will also push warm air towards the GPU in normal ATX cases & big towers, if you decide to mount the PSU that way instead of the normal way which would be fan faced down, to suck in cold air through a dust filter (which again wouldn't work properly as this PSU would BLOW the air through the filter). It will also generate an area of high temperature in cases with false floors/PSU covers. That might not be a problem, but that warm air could simply flow outside with a normal fan...

So for me personally: nice idea, but not fully thought to the end.

Tbh if you are needing a 1200w psu the little heat it produces will be the least of your worries, and a good possibility you'll have plenty of air flow to compensate.

That's true, actually.

To me it seems like the reverse rotation isn't a permanent thing, more of an occasional option to blow dust away from the intake. There's a switch to activate it at any time.

That's impressive. 1200W PSU's are certainly becoming less and less necessary, but having them smaller will certainly help a lot of people.

My pal got the 600w version of this. The cables are just gorgeous. Glad to see Enermax back taking the crown, even if it's not the same Enermax

Threadripper and two 1080Tis in a reasonably sized tower? Something like an Inwin perhaps?
