On its face the Enermax ZDPMS software seems a brilliant idea, giving you detailed real time information on your PSU and what it is currently doing. You can watch each rail separately with values for both current and voltage being displayed, the overall draw on your PSU and its current efficiency rating as well as setting Over Current Protection values. There are some flies in the ointment, not the least of which is that as of this moment the software supports the Enermax Digifanless 550W PSU …and that is the end of the current list of supported models. The current version of the software also let [H]ard|OCP set OCP and OVP values at which the PSU should trip an alarm and reduce or shut off power, which was not exactly what happened when [H] tried an admittedly nasty trick on the PSU. The review is not all negative and there are some hints of what this software could aspire to as it matures, you should read the whole review right here.
"One area that has been somewhat overlooked when it comes to PC desktop system power supplies is monitoring software. There have been some attempts in the past, but those have been somewhat anemic. Enermax is looking to change that with its new Zero Delay Power Monitoring System."
