  1. Need help. Bought a 600w enermax psu and it was dead before I even plugged it in. Did a RMA and got another identical one. Both are from newegg. Ran a voltage test on it and it's only putting out 3.2v from the green wire from the main connector. I ran a voltage test on my enermax 550 and the green wire puts out 5.1. My 550 works great. Anyway I plugged in the 600w and sure enough, it barely turns the PSU fans. I doesn't even fire up the mobo. It tries to as soon as I hit the on switch but that's all it does. Try. Is it possible that newegg just got a bad batch of 600w enermax psus in.

    Send that enermax back and get this baby....I was a little skeptical about buying it but OMG this is the best psu I have ever owned over any enermax or antec.

    650 watts continuous 710 peak.....pure power for your beast......plenty of cables 4 PCI-E....one of only 4 PSU's reccomended by Nvidia for SLI......

    Buy it you will not be disappointed........
