A Closer Look
The first thing which is just hard to miss is a paint coating. The PSU looks and feels in touch like a top PSU series while it’s still mainstream. It’s good to see that Enermax is not saving on things which count for many users, even those with a lower budget.
What I really like are power cables. In most Bronze 80+ PSU series we can find standard cables while the RevoBron is equipped with all flat and whole black cables what looks better and is easier to manage in smaller PC cases. The build is semi-modular where everything besides motherboard and CPU power cables is modular so we don’t have to install all the cables if there is lack of space or we simply don’t want it.
The PSU is designed to work at up to 90% efficiency. All electrolytic capacitors are Japanese and are rated at 105°C. Pretty much as the specification says.
The RevoBron also offers multiple circuit protections like OCP, OVP, UVP, OPP, SCP, and SIP.
Even the fan is designed with endurance on the mind. RevoBron PSU series uses about the same type of fan as higher Enermax series so twister bearing fan rated at 160,000 hours MTBF. In this PSU is 120mm fan which is really quiet and has automatic rotation speed.
The case won’t let us see it but the RevoBron 600W PSU has been used on the PC build presented below, based on the Enermax SABERAY ATX case and Enermax LIQFUSION 240 RGB AIO cooler.
Presented setup includes the i7-8086K 5GHz processor, 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM, Gigabyte GTX1070 FE graphics card and three SSD. However maximum PSU load tests were performed using the AMD Threadripper platform with the TR 1920X processor and GTX1080Ti graphics card. Close to 150W difference under load what at least in our tests is significant.
Let’s take a look at test results.
Voltage regulation is really good for this class of unit. There were no problems with stability regardless of the load. The PSU was not getting really hot or loud during load what is also good, considering that most 80+ Bronze units that I had a chance to test were already loud at 50%+ load.
It’s hard to compare RevoBron to the top Enermax series but for sure it’s interesting PSU which will satisfy most if not all users. I’m satisfied of what this unit offers as it runs quiet and provides stable voltages. What else gamers need?
