Enermax Triathlor FC 550W Power Supply Review

Installation & Testing
Getting the Triathlor FC 550W installed in your system is very easy. Since the unit is modular you use only the cables that you need. We did not have any issues installing the power supply in our Cooler Master Cosmos II Case.

We will be testing the Triathlor FC 550W in our Intel X79 system, which is comprised of the following components.

Processor: Intel Core i7-3820
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 Pro
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 OC
Memory: 16GB Kingston 10th Anniversary
Power: Enermax Triathlor
Storage: 750GB SATA II Drive
Cooling: Noctua NH-L12
Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II with 5 fans

We will be using OCCT to test this power supply. Initial spot check on the 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails were 3.31V, 5.09V and 12.29V respectively. We will be running OCCT’s power supply test for 1 hour to stress test the power supply. Below are the results.




All of the rails did show a some ripple, with the 3.3V rail being the biggest culprit. All of the rails stayed within the 5% fluctuation that we like to see in power supplies in this range.
