Performance:

The Liberty was tested on our open-air testbed. The test system we utilized consisted of the following components:

Hardware Components
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Venice)
Motherboard: DFI nForce4 Ultra-D
Memory: OCZ EL PC-4000 2GB
Graphics Card: eVGA 6800GT
Hard Drives: Maxtor 120GB and 160GB
Cooling: DangerDen Water Cooling
Software Components
Operating System: FedoraCore4
Linux Kernel: 2.6.12-1.1447

The Venice was overclocked to 2.7GHz (300 X 9) at 1.7 volts. The RAM was running on a 166/200 divider, which resulted in a frequency of 250MHz. The load voltages were taken while running CPU Burn-In v1.00 (Linux) and Doom 3 for 30 minutes. The idle voltages on the other hand were taken while no processes were running on the system. The voltages were all measured using a Craftsman Digital Multimeter.

Conclusion:

This is yet another excellent unit. Enermax has not let down its reputation with its release of the Liberty. The voltage drops under load were minimal, and while under load, the rails did not fluctuate. The unit was also very quiet, and couldn't be heard above the other components in the system. The overall aesthetics were nice. The cables sleeving was also very well done. And of course the Eternity connectors were very convenient. We can definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a good power supply. Even though it is not officially, "SLI certified", it should have no problem powering a full-blown SLI rig and the unit may actually still be partaking in NVIDIA's certification process.
