DETAILS

The Platimax 600W is nicely finished with a tough-looking speckled paint. A 140mm fan with translucent blades is employed behind a wire grill intake, and the exhaust vent is a typical hex pattern grill. A silver colored inset surrounds the fan grill; this appears to be primary decorative.


It's a handsome unit, with a tough-looking speckled paint finish and wide open grills for both intake and exhaust.


There are no openings i other than the fan intake and back panel exhaust. The attached ATX and AUX12V cables are nicely sleeved.


The seven output connectors for the detachable cables are clearly marked, and keyed to prevent user error. Each connector is marked 12V1, 12V2 or 12V3 to indicate the line used; I don't believe I've seen this level of transparency about 12V lines in any other PSU.


The spec label shows three 12V lines limited to 25A each: It seems almost a throwback, as most PSUs now sport a single 12V line, obviating any need to "balance" the load among the different output cables.
