Enermax has made a good effort to make sure there are "No more Limits"
on cable clutter or confusing cable configurations. The plentiful and intelligently
designed modular cable system is the best feature of the Liberty. Freedom
from noise is also available, at least up to ~150W output, which may be plenty good enough for many systems. The overall acoustic performance is similar to that of the Enermax Noisetaker series, which made our Recommended PSU lists. The acoustics are good, but not ground-breaking, due partly to the somewhat complex sonic signature of the fan.
There are plenty of nice touches, notably the storage case for spare cables
and tasteful aesthetics. Efficiency is also excellent, although not in the champion category. The high efficiency and active PFC help keep the Liberty environmentally
When it comes down to it, the Liberty is a good all-round power supply that
raises the bar for how cables should be managed and does a good job of everything
else. There is always room for improvement, but the Liberty doesn't have any
obvious weaknesses. Of course, this is SPCR, so we'd improve the noise level
Much thanks to Maxpoint
for samples of this power supply.
