The Enermax REVOLUTION DF 850W packaging is very much like what we have been seeing from Enermax for some time now. The front of the package has a row of advertising that includes things such as “Twister Bearing Fan”, “D.F. Switch”, “Full Modular”, “Japan Electrolytic Capacitors”, etc.

Among those things though, we also see that Enermax is advertising this unit as adhering to the 80 Plus Gold standard of efficiency and a quick check of the 80 Plus website shows that this unit is indeed certified for 80 Plus Gold. Moving to the rear of the packaging of the REVOLUTION DF 850W, most of what we find is the advertising carry over from the front of the package but with pictures, or graphs, and more text accompanying it.

However, we also find the power label (reproduced below) and the connector count (reproduced below). The rail distribution comes from the user manual. Lastly, the REVOLUTION DF 850W carries a 5-year warranty.

In the Box

The REVOLUTION DF 850W is advertised as being a multi 12v rail power supply with a capacity up to 70.83A (or ~100% of the unit’s capacity) if necessary available to the 12v rails. The minor rails (5v and 3.3v) have a capacity of 22A each and the combined capacity of those two rails is 120W. Combined with these outputs, we find that this unit has 6 PCIe connectors, 12 SATA connectors, and 4 Molex connectors.

Once we open the Enermax REVOLUTION DF 850W packaging, we are left looking at the unit, power cord, mounting screws, Velcro ties, cables, and user manuals. The user manuals include the usual pinout guide, power label, and the electrical specifications that we typically (as well as today) see from Enermax. With that out of the way, let’s move on to see what this unit looks like when we open it up!
