Why would you even look at the Watts of the PSU?
The two +12v rails on the Enermax are capable of providing 528W to the main components of the system. But since the combined output of the rails is not the same as the sum of the two individual rails, the power supplied to the components is more in the neighborhood of like 450W-500W.
