Enermax Revolution DUO brings back the dual-fan PSU

In what seems like a blast from the past, Enermax brings back dual-fan PSU design with the launch of its Revolution DUO series. These models feature 80Plus Gold certification and ship in 500W, 600W and 700W versions. They're equipped with a 100mm intake fan and a 80mm exhaust fan, most PSU makers dumped this years ago and overall I don't really see the point but Enermax claims its DUOFlow makes the airflow management more effective.

Enermax  REVOLUTION DUO

ENERMAX brings the dual fan PSU back to the market! REVOLUTION DUO, with 80 PLUS® certification, features active ventilation for long-term system stability by adopting two patented Twister Bearing fans which create dynamic airflow with quietness.

The comeback of dual-fan PSU is due to increased demand of PSU shroud cases. Although the shroud cases make users more easily to do cable management for a neat and clean build, the confined space will decrease air circulation. The ENERMAX DUOFlow design utilizes the 2nd fan to actively dissipate the hot air and make the airflow management much more effective.

DUOFlow design achieves active ventilation
REVOLUTION DUO is equipped with DUOFlow design, consisting of two ENERMAX patented Twister Bearing fans, 1* 10cm intake fan and 1* 8cm exhaust fan. Thanks to active ventilation, DUOFlow makes lower RPM of fans; the use of Twister Bearing technology also delivers a more silent cooling performance compared with regular single fan PSU .

Patented FMA technology provides extra cooling for system when need
In addition to DUOFlow design, REVOLUTION DUO is also built with patented FMA (Fan-speed Manual Adjustment) function to provide optimal cooling upon users’ demand. With the default setting of FMA, two thermal-controlled Twister Bearing fans automatically adjust their speed by the system load conditions – these two fans would not spin at full speed even under full load of PSU. FMA can be activated to increase the speed of both fans simultaneously to full spinning on the basis of FMA default setting. FMA, in other words, is a turbo switch of REVOLUTION DUO to offer users turbo airflow and extra cooling .

For PSU-shrouded case, the active ventilation from REVOLUTION DUO ensures PSU against being overheated or harmed in a confined space. For regular open PC case, REVOLUTION DUO helps improve system cooling when it is mounted with the intake fan facing up.
