PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
As you can see, this Coolmax unit has plenty of power and plenty of connectors. The four +12V rails have ample amperage for the most demanding systems, but no data is provided as to which cables are fed from each rail. One would surmise that the 3rd and 4th rails are reserved for graphics, but I have no direct knowledge of this. There are sufficient cables and connectors for virtually any hardware configuration one can come up with, including multi GPU installations.
The feature list is equally satisfying, including active PFC, high efficiency (up to 87%,) ATX V2.2 and EPS V2.91 support and modular, sleeved cables with gold plated connectors. I'm likin' what I'm seein'. A bit later we'll have the opportunity to look at the rather unique approach Coolmax has taken with respect to the modular cabling.
The large retail box displays graphics making quite a splash about the efficiency of the contents, and Mr. Bones is very impressed by the packing inside.
