You can grab the Modu 82+ 625 Watt modular PSU from NewEgg for about $170.00 if you are in the US. This is a little more than I would expect to pay for a 625 Watt PSU that only carries a bronze rating. Looking around I found Gold and Silver 80 plus Certified PSUs for around the same price and that offered a higher power rating there were even a few Bronze certified that offered more power at a lower price. If I were pricing a PSU out this price difference would put me off of the Enermax Modu 82+. After having tested the Modu 82+ I would say that you do get what you pay for.
For RMA you would simply head to Enermax’s Support site and open a ticket. From there their automated system will walk you through the steps needed to get your issues taken care of.
The Modu 82+ is an impressive PSU. The well thought out modular design makes it easy to work with when installing and to prevent the spaghetti cable mess that can happen with many other power supplies. The removal of the PCIe Power connectors to a modular cables is an excellent feature, also allowing for two 6+2 Pin connectors on each line will help to keep things nice and clean. The noise level from the Modu 82+ was almost non-existent yet the built in fan was able to keep things nice and cool. The Modu was also able to keep our power hungry i7 system well fed with power during our testing. My biggest complaints with this PSU are the external fan connector and the price. I do not like having to depend on a mainboard fan header to keep my PSU cool and I think that the price may cause many to overlook this PSU when shopping.
It does deliver but in the end might be left on the shelf in favor of higher rated [80Plus silver and Gold] power supplies that cost the same or less.
