Enermax REVOLUTION D.F. X 1200W Power Supply Review

Introduction and Specifications

Meet the Enermax REVOLUTION D.F. X 1200W

Enermax has released their new Revolution D.F. X series of power supplies, upgrading their high wattage PSU lineup with support for up to two 12VHPWR power connections, and full PCIe 5.0 and ATX 3.0 compatibility. Today, we will be reviewing the DFX series’ Revolution 1200W power supply.

Top handle the largest power excursions, the Enermax Revolution D.F. X series can handle up to 200% power excursions, and promises low noise levels under load. Enermax has even added ARGB lighting to their new PSU, adding some extra flare to their latest power supply.


Enermax are releasing three new units as part of their new Revolution D.F. X range, offering consumers 850W, 1050W, and 1200W models. In the US, these power supplies are available for $149.99, $169.99, and $199.99 respectively. Larger 1350W and 1600W models for this PSU are planned, and are due to become available later this year.


Enermax’s new 1200W Revolution D.F. X power supply is an 80+ Gold rated power supply that ships with two 12VHPWR cables, and is compatible with both the PCIe 5.0 and ATX 3.0 power standards. The power supply also features controllable RGB lighting, and a zero RPM fan mode for low loads. The power supply is fully modular, and features a 120mm fan for product cooling.

Noise Levels

Under load, Enermax has stated that their new 1200W Revolution D.F. X power supply operates in a 0dB fan mode when under 20% loads. This means that loads under 240W will see this PSU operate fanlessly. Under full 1200W loads, this PSU will operate at noise levels of under 30 dB, making this unit near-silent under its maximum rated load. Since most PSUs are not used at exactly their full loads, real world users can expect this PSU to operate more quietly under most circumstances.

Plenty of cable options

Out of the box, the Enermax Revolution DFX 1200W ships with a lot of cables. This PSU can be used to connect to two 12VHPWR devices, either though a dual 8-pin to 12VHWPR connector, or a standard 12VHPWR connector. The PSU also features two 4+4-pin CPU power cables, 4 6+2-pin power cables, 12 SATA connections, six 4-pin molex connections, and a single floppy disk drive power connector. This PSU is ready for your hardware, no matter how old or new it is.

Note that this PSU uses standard 12VHPWR connectors, and not the newer CEM 5.1/12V-2×6 connectors that we have seen in some new products.
