The NAXN, the latest power supply series from Enermax, is subdivided into three sub-series: the NAXN, also known as Tomahawk II, featuring 350 W, 450 W, and 500 W models, with no 80 Plus certification; the NAXN 80+, featuring 350 W, 450 W, 500 W, and 600 W models, with the standard 80 Plus certification; and the NAXN 82+, featuring 750 W and 850 W models, with the 80 Plus Bronze certification and modular cabling system (a feature not available on the models from the other two sub-series.) Let’s see if the new Enermax NAXN 80+ 600 W is a good option.
While Enermax has its own factories, the NAXN 80+ 600 W is actually manufactured by CWT, and uses the same platform as the Corsair CX series.
The Enermax NAXN 80+ 600 W is 5.5” (140 mm) deep, using a 120 mm sleeve bearing fan on its bottom (Yate Loon D12SH-12, maximum of 2,200 rpm, 88 cfm, and 40 dBA).
This unit doesn’t have a modular cabling system. This power supply comes with the following cables:
- Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 19.7” (50 cm) long
- One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 24” (61 cm) long
- Two cables, each with one six/eight-pin connector for video cards, 20.5” (52 cm) long
- One cable with four SATA power connectors, 18.9” (48 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
- One cable with three SATA power connectors and one standard peripheral power connector, 18.9” (48 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
- One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors and one floppy disk drive power connector, 18.9” (48 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
All wires are 18 AWG, which is the correct gauge to be used.
The cable configuration is very good for a 600 W product, with a total of seven SATA power connectors.
