Hello guys,

Here is a power which is unusual with its looks. If I understand correctly,the manufacturer has optimized the cooling.See for yourself :

I cannot see this working at all.

As cool as it looks, anything that brands itself as 'semi passive' ad 'semi-fanless' gets instantly disregarded in my mind. Fans kick in after 20% load on the psu? So for a gaming rig it's pointless as a half decent system would most likely always be using over 20%, and how many office computers that are just built to run word come with minimum 750watt PSUs anyway?

I could understand if it 1 large fan, but 2 that size would just be noisy, and corsair and other brands just make their silent enough even with the fan running anyway.

I can see this being an awesome unit, but one slight problem... looks. It's like the Shrek of PSU's, could potentially be an awesome unit if they forgot about this cooling mumbo-jumbo. PSU's don't get hot unless you put them under insane load, and even under full load 1 tradition 120mm or 140mm fan will do the job perfectly fine

Using your other hand, gently massage this area until your nose stops running, or your sinuses open up just a little.If you are at home, you might also take off your shoes and massage the area between your second and third toes. Fleet and vehicle tracking has become an essential aspect of the industry and no one who is going to go far, can do so without it.

I find this power supply ugly but original. I much prefer the new power supply from Corsair.http://www.corsair.c...pply-units.html
