There are plenty topics of debate in the tech industry. One of them has to do with single rail versus multi-rail designs in power supplies. Multi-rail PSUs became super popular for a period of time several years ago, though many high end models have since switched back to single rail setups, which refers to the all-important +12V rail. It's a topic worthy of a much longer article, but as it pertains to our Consumer Electronics Show coverage, we happened by Enermax's section where we got a look at a 1250W PSU that lets you switch between single and multi-rail mode.
Planning a massive system build loaded to the gills with large components and high end parts? You'll need a case that's capable of housing all those parts, and if you're in the market for one, Enermax hopes you'll check out its new Thormax GT full tower enclosure. The Thormax GT is large and in charge with support for E-ATX motherboards, graphics cards up to 490mm in length, and 240mm and 360mm depth liquid coolers.
If you're in the market for a new CPU cooler, Enermax has announced a a mid-range tower-style cooler with LED lights, U-shaped heat pipes, and Enermax's patented Stack Effect Flow (SEF) technology. On top of that, the blue LED lights add a cool sci-fi lilt to what could otherwise be a boring plain cooler. And who would want that?
Unless you've mastered the art of mind control, you won't get very far in your build without a power supply. It's arguably the single most important component, and if you choose poorly, it's your components that ultimately suffer. Are you in the market for a reliable unit?

Fans, fans, and more fans (and a fanless power supply)
Things can get crazy at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but one company that kept its cool is Enermax. We mean that literally, folks. Gordon stopped by Enermax's booth at the show to see what the company brought to show off, and the answer is fans. Lots of fans, some of which lit up and reacted to sound. On the flip side, Enermax also brought with it a fanless power supply that's 80 Plus Platinum certified.

It’s easy to dismiss Enermax’s new Coenus line of computer cases the moment you lay eyes on the gunmetal-gray ECA3290A-G. It’s a tiny Pomeranian of a case—only microATX and ATX motherboards need apply—and it feels every bit as flimsy to hold as its front panel and bulky top are goofy-looking.
Note: This review was originally featured in the September 2013 issue of the magazine.
We received an email from Enermax letting us know that its Ostrog computer case is now available in pink (limited edition) with a white internal coating. At the bottom of the email is a taglines that reads, "Pink is the new black," which is news to us. More appropriate, however, is the timing of the launch, which just so happens to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October).
There's nothing wrong with showing up fashionably late to the Haswell party, and if you're ready to take the plunge into 4th Generation Core processor territory, there are lots of motherboards to choose from. One of them is the topic of today's top deal, an ASRock Z87 Extreme4 mobo for $145 with free shipping (Free 4GB G.Skill DDR3-1866 with purchase, limited offer). One of the unique features of this board is that it's waterproof thanks to a special lyaer of Conformal Coating, so if you plan to water cool, you'll have a bit of peace of mind that a leak won't be the end of the world.
